What are you the least confident about?

Understanding the mucus pattern?
Understanding the temperature pattern?
Understanding the rules for TTA?
Understanding the rules for TTC?

Other?

Well, since I'm just now starting I'm not terribly confident about anything just yet, but I think the thing I'm most worried about is being able to determine my cervical mucous properly on any given day. I have a feeling I'm going to be pretty confused.

Are you at all interested in having personalized support with that from a charting instructor? It really does make things much less confusing! We've tried both ways - teaching ourselves (didn't work) and learning from a teacher (worked!) LOL

I'm least confident about looking at others charts. I do ok for the most part, but then there's that wonky chart every now and then, and it's like I forgot everything I learned.

I think I would be interested in learning from an instructor. I don't know about taking a class or anything because DH, while he is fine with using FAM, is not really into learning the nuts and bolts. I am more than willing, though. DH will probably just depend on me to let him know when our safe days are. I just need to be able to do that!

If you need any help checking your area for instructors, don't hesitate to ask ok? I can have a look for you.

I have all the BOM rules pretty down pat but the temp thing throws me. I know I need 3 days of high temps after Oing - but I mostly rely on BOM rules. Now when I go back to TTA you will get a totally different answer to this question. LOL

Understanding the mucus pattern I think. I don't really have obviously different types of CM, but my temp's and cramping around ovulation times and 'dry' days help me put it all together.

I'm still trying to get down the rules for TTA. If in doubt, we are using another barrier.
