I am trying my best at charting the same time with similar amounts of sleep but David is still nursing and it doesn't always work the way that I planned.

It's totally normal for breastfeeding to cause some irregularity with your charting. Have you thought about using a mucus-only method so you don't have to worry about temping?

Also, are you TTC or TTA?

It messed me up a lot, invariably I would wake up to my alarm in my son's room with him in my arms asleep after nursing. I went with a mucus only charting method to avoid.

We are TTA.

How does the mucus only work? I watch my CM but I have been VERY dry.

For mucus only, you would need to take a course to learn how it all works. It's very simple though. If you are totally dry for 3 days in a row (nothing felt, nothing seen) - you can have intercourse on alternating evenings as long as you remain dry. As soon as you are no longer dry, you would abstain until you have 3 full dry days again.
