BBT increase after moving in the morning

So, I was trying to chart this month, but came down with some sort of cold/flu bug right around when I was expecting to O. No idea if it actually happened. There was the fever on Tuesday morning, decongestants that affect more than just nasal/chest mucus after that, and the fact that I still can't reliably breathe through my nose almost a week later.
So, the question is, do we know how much getting up affects BBT? Both mornings after my fever was gone, my temp registered very fast on my thermometer (unusual) and it was lower than I expected. So I got up, slowly walked to the bathroom, cleared out my nose and took my temp while sitting/standing in the bathroom. It went up anywhere from 0.75 - 1 degree just standing there. I've given up on charting this month, but was just curious if I was seeing what I wanted to see, since that seemed like a rather large increase just for getting out of bed.
