Just sharing...

I've decided to share my chart... (fertility chart of course ;) )
For those who have never charted this may not mean anything but for those who have they know what I mean... Right now I am in the 2 week wait of my first PPAF (post-partum "aunt flo")
It has been a long cycle and I am starting to get impatient... but at least my temps are up for now... we'll see in a few days whether they head back down or stay up...
For those interested.... here is my chart...

I have that website bookmarked for when we TTC again (probably in a year or so). I started charting a few months before we started trying so I could learn to recognize the patterns. I never expected it would be so much FUN. I found it empowering to see what I always thought were random biological events turned into such a wonderful logical collection of signs.

Happy charting!

So does this mean you're trying for another baby? I'm also going to bookmark that site for when begin charting again, although I'm not sure if I want another baby (well, I know I want one, but do I really want one?)

I really do love charting... At the moment we are 'trying' for another ;)... I don't think I will be too upset if it doesn't happen right away but I will be happy if it does....
I started really charting when I was TTC Colin... I love that I now know my body and I now could never go back to ignoring my body's signs I also could never go back to using other forms of birth control...
I was on the pill for many years (started when I was 13 because of medical troubles) and I used it until I was going to TTC Xavier... so 10 years...
I hate what the pill did to my body and the way it made me feel... I will now on chart as a way to plan... (TTC or not)...
If you interested more in the whole thing a great book is 'Taking charge of your Fertility'... it is what Fertility Friend is based on....

Godd luck with the TTC. I bought Taking charge in Oct of 2003. Read it cover to cover. Went off the pill and started charting. I loaned it to a friend who was having a bit of trouble TTC. A few months later, I understand my patterns long enough to know that it was The Day. Whamo.

About two months later, my friend emails me to thank me for the book -- she is six weeks pregnant. I emailed back -- you are welcome. I'm 8 weeks.

I swear by that book.

PS Thanks for the wrap information -- we've been out-of-town. I'll take a look at it this week. My fear -- is that I am becoming a sling-aholic and I am using Hubby as an excuse to buy another one. :-)

Thanks for sharing!
My hubbie and I have always practiced Natural Family Planning. It has been very successful both in achieving and avoiding pregnancy.

Have you ever tried mucus-only methods? We switched about a year ago from sympto-thermal to Creighton, and we love it so muich better. And I always thought mucus-only would be so much harder!

Best luck w/ ttc.
