    Question Sleep issues and a beeping bbt themometer?

    Hi all,

    I have a great bbt thermometer but theres a problem. It beeps about ten times once the temp has been taken, it's high pitched and highly annoying!

    I've been automatically waking at 5am-ish but we don't really need to get up until 6.30 so I figure take the temp and try to fall back to sleep for a bit but the beeping is driviing my dh mad!
    He cant get back to sleep and wants me to stop temping as it is robbing him of 1.5hrs sleep.

    Overall I have to say, this is my 2nd month of doing BBT and even without the beeping I have had an awful sleep pattern since starting, I wake a couple of times in the night and this 5am wake seems to have set in. I also dream that I forget to take my temp before getting up. Silly!!!! really silly!

    Does anyone else have this problem?



    Any tips would be great.

    Thanks, sassba

    Yeah the beeping wakes my DS who is usually in our bed by then My thermometer doesn't have a memory so I have to look at it there and then, so can't switch it off straight away to stop the beeps. If I'm quick (and it's not too dark) I have a quick look and switch it off, so it only beeps about 2 times.

    Default thermometer noise!

    Hi Liz,

    Thanks for your response, it's great because I didnt actually consider turning it off I assumed you'd lose the temp..... I just tested mine and it does save the reading.
    That should make a difference,
    though I think just one beep will still cause a grumpf.
    Oh well....

    thanks, sassba

    My DH didn't enjoy the sound too much either. SO I did my temping under the covers, covering up the chime part of the thermometer with my fingers. It sounds like a hassle, but it did reduce the noise a lot.

    I, too, had the same type of thermometre as Bettyboop so I got another one through LC. It is great. It only quietly beeps once the temp has been taken. It does have a memory but will only hold it once.

    I use my LC thermometre under the blankets so the beeping doesnt wake DH then I turn it off. I check it again at a more respectable hour ...

    Hi,
    Just wanted to add that I have the same thermometer as Tony from Lullaby Conceptions and it is awesome...it is so quiet!
    The one I had before beeped so loudly that it would wake up DH...but with my new one he has no idea what is going on.
