I'm not sure I've been in here since I got prego...
But I have a question for you ladies...if you've had a kid before. How long after you had a child did you start charting again? Like the day you gave birth, at your 6 week mark, some point before that, some point after that? And were you TTC or TTA?
I always start as soon as my lochia stops, for a few reasons:
1. I have a history of returning to fertility early
2. I'm a geek and I like to chart
3. It's easier to establish the Basic Infertile Pattern before fertility starts returning. It's nice to have that because once things get funkier, it's harder to establish the BIP.
That said, if you meet the conditions for LAM (breastfeeding infertility) you can wait to start charting until you no longer meet the conditions.
