I have charted before, but it has been awhile. When I got pregnant with my son, I was sorta charting (everything but my temps). Now he is almost 7 months and I can't temp and chart yet because I am still up most nights to help him find his binky in the middle of the night. That and I don't go to bed till 1 or 2 am most nights. I very rarely get 4 hours of consecutive sleep a night.

Any thoughts? I don't want to use BC again because I didn't like my moods with it and the possibility that I actually got pregnant on the pill. I can't afford a class, so if anyone has some pointers or direction I would be very great full.

Thanks.

It's a misconception that you cannot chart while breastfeeding. You only need to learn a mucus-only method which has no requirements for sleep and is just as effective as charting with temperatures. Sympto Thermal Methods (mucus plus temps) generally teach only the basics when it comes to mucus because they can rely on the thermal shift to confirm ovulation. Mucus-only methods get much more specific so that you can confirm ovulation based on the mucus pattern alone. Check out the Resources page for teachers near you. The Billings Ovulation Method, the Creighton Model, and the Family of the Americas Ovulation Method are all mucus-only methods.

Don't let cost deter you, simply advise any teacher you have contacted of the situation and they will most likely teach you anyway or charge only for the materials (about $10 with the method I teach, Billings). If a teacher is generous and waives her fee, it would be courteous to simply make a donation to the particular NFP organization if you are able in the future.


Best wishes!
