Its been a long time since I've stopped by this board! Probably a year and a lot has happened in that year. I'm expecting in less then three weeks, I've graduated from the nursing program and have my license, DS is potty trained...

For after delivery, I plan to use LAM and NFP again, but I'm wondering when I should start. Should I just start charting CM and such when I notice it, or once the bleeding stops? I thought I might consider charting temps again once I get my first PP AF.

#1-3 I had my PP AF return around cycles 3-4. #4 I had return at like 8 weeks (4 weeks after mastitis), then it was gone for several months, then I had another 4 weeks after another bought of mastitis, then nothing for several months until 11.5 mo.

Hey welcome back!!!! Good to see you again!

If it's really important to TTA after the little one arrives, I definitely recommend an NFP refresher that will cover all the PP stuff you need to know. And it's a good idea to start charting CM once your bleeding stops, even if you don't need to follow any rules yet while LAM is in effect. It will help you figure out your Basic Infertile Pattern early on, from there you only have to watch for changes.

Ditto to what Shawna said. I observed CM patterns very early on. It makes it a lot easier to notice a change when it occurs.

Thanks. It seems odd my BIP would change, but I am always all about observing the no sex for 6-8 weeks PP (at least)!! LOL

Oh yes, the BIP can change after each baby and again after your cycles return. Since you're nice and obedient about the 6 - 8 week wait, that's a great time to establish the BIP! That BIP is only reliable until you get your first PP ovulation and AF. Then you need to re-establish it again!

Congrats on the new little one and the nursing graduation. I'm about 3 weeks postpartum and possibly done bleeding, but with me it stops and starts so I don't know yet, so I'm trying to decide when to go back to charting myself.
