Has anyone ever seen a bbt thermometer that <b>doesn't</b> beep? Dh complains about mine e v e r y freaking day, and I just wish I could find one that vibrates instead of the beeping! (no funny business, those of you who temp <i>elsewhere</i> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> )<br><br>
I can't imagine how much more frustrating it would be to temp and wake a co-sleeping babe!<br><br>
Any inventors among us?

Let me know if you find one! DH gets PISSED if the thermometer wakes him up. So now I wake up and go straight to the bathroom to temp. I know you're supposed to do it in bed but I got sick of DH throwing pillows at me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I searched online for a glass thermometer and found a few places where you can buy them. Silent but they take about five minutes - not sure if they still are made with mercury, either. I didn't end up getting one but would be curious if anyone else uses one.

WOW...that is amazing....<br>
My bbt digital....I can bearly hear!!!! Maybe b/c I am so fricking groggy in the morning at 6:30am...who knows.<br><br>
I can only suggest the good old fashioned GLASS ones....that is what I used for 4 years while ttc my first child...It works, just takes a bit longer to use.<br><br><br>

Yes the glass ones still usually have mercury in them. I am surprised they still sell them. they are easily broken, and what a disaster if they do break!!! I'd stay far far away from them.<br><br>
I had a silent digital thermometer that I got from longs or wallgreens I think. i think the bbt "beeping" one is more accurate though, so I use it (I just stick my head under the blankets though to try to muffle the sound.) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

<p>Here is one that I found you can use.  It test through the ear.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Is through the ear accurate enough?  Can it be trusted?</p>
