Converting fahrenheit into celcius

Hey everyone!

I just been reading up on BBT's and they all seem to work in celcius. The instructions I have read about them tell me that they have to measure to point 2 of a degree. For example, 36.32 degrees C. I also read that when you ovulate your temperature only goes up by about point 2 of a degree. I have a thermometer which measures to point 2 degrees but in fahrenheit.

I have found a converter at http://www.wbuf.noaa.gov/tempfc.htm but I am not sure that after converting my temperature from fahrenheit to celsius if the ovulating spike (point 2 degrees) would give the same result?

For example, 97.78F equals 36.54C
97.99F equals 36.66C

These are results from taking my temperature in Fahrenheit and converting to Celsius.

Sorry if this doesn't make much sense, it's the best I can explain it since I don't fully understand it myself.

Please help!! I have irregular periods so I don't know when I ovulate and ths is the only way I can pinpoint it without buying an ovulation test kit.

Been TTC for 9 months and I'm getting impatient (I know, I know.... thinking about it all the time doesn't help and neither does stress, LOL) but I want to be able to make sure we're BD at the right time.
