i thought you take your basal temp by therometer. so that would be how you take it
since your on fertility medications, like clomid, it might increase your chances of having multiples but not likely for triplets.
you should really talk to a doctor who can advise you on this matter

Basal body temperature (BBT) is your temperature when you first wake up in the morning or after at least three hours of uninterrupted sleep. Before you even get out of bed to brush your teeth or start your day, pop a basal thermometer (available at chemists) into your mouth. This thermometer shows minute incremental degree changes, unlike a regular thermometer.
Most basal thermometers come with a temperature-plotting chart. Make some extra copies of the chart, in case it takes you a few months to get pregnant, or print off a blank chart.
When you ovulate, hormonal changes trigger a slight rise in your BBT, which lasts at least until your next period. You'll probably notice your temperature spiking on other days but, unless it stays that way, you're probably not ovulating. You are most fertile on the day of the temperature spike and on the few days preceding it. Some fertility experts suggest you could still conceive if you have sex within 12 to 24 hours after the temperature spike. If you do become pregnant, your temperature will stay elevated throughout your pregnancy.
It is helpful to chart your temperature for a few months so you can see whether there's a pattern to your cycle. If you are ill or don't take your temperature immediately on waking, any pattern you find may be inaccurate.
Good Luck XX
