Charting with Daylight Savings Time??

Ok, stupid question ladies.... Right now I'm at the end of the TWW, 11 DPO and with daylight savings time I have a question. We gain an hour, so should I take my temp and hour earlier?? If it was any other part of my cycle I wouldn't care, but I want to get an accurate temp tomorrow. Does it matter?? Again,stupid question just wondering what you ladies think.

NVM ladies!! :) I found the answer on my FF app. It says this:


Do I have to do anything special to chart my BBT when the time changes for Daylight Saving Time?


The effect of Daylight Saving Time (DST) on your temperature is usually limited to the day of the change because you adjust quite quickly. In addition, the exact effect depends strongly on your own metabolism. Some people will see no effect at all while others will see a slight change (increase or decrease). Because in general having one temperature slightly off will not change your chart interpretation, Fertility Friend's recommendation is to record your temperature as usual without correcting it in any manner. We recommend that you keep taking the temp at the same time. If you took it at 6 in the morning before the change, then take it at 6 in the morning after the change.

This didn't even occur to me with the amount I've traveled since I started charting.  I just take it when I wake up, the only inconsistencies I've had are when we were driving all night and get to our destination after midnight - even if I get 3 hours or 8 hours, I've had a high temp for that day.
