My instructor is away and I have some questions - could you try to answer them for me?

I am unsure on what to put down for today. I was dry and still am, but I just went to the restroom and had pink when I wiped. Nothing anywhere else. Should I just wait and see if I start bleeding tomorrow? My instructor thought that maybe I finally ended up ovulating a little over a week ago, but she has never said for sure. If I had access to Excel, I would update it and send it to you.

I also have another question. Previously, a few days before I would start to bleed I would get a pimple somewhere on my face (usually my chin) and I have nothing right now. If I did O on when my instruction thinks I MIGHT have and previously I didn't O and just had a unfertile bleed, then could the acne have been a clue? And the fact that I don't have it now might mean that I ovulated. Or do you think I am reading too much into all of this. Feel free to tell me that I am full of it. I am sure I am trying to read something into it that isn't there.

Sometimes I feel like when I am looking at my chart I am looking at one of those 3D puzzels that you have to look at with your eyes crossed. LOL

TIA


I will see if I can find a saved version that isn't on my dead computer and update it on DH's. Oh - do you think FF would be okay to chart with on top of my BOM chart even though I won't be temping?

Just refresh me quickly...have you had your first post partum Peak yet? Is that what you're waiting for? Because it is uncertain whether you Peaked a week ago...are you still following the Early Day Rules? Seeing your chart would be helpful, but will do my best. Another option for chart sharing is www.nfpcharting.com It's just for Billings. The first month is free, so you can sign up, punch in your observations and stamps, and then email the webmaster to ask him to make your chart visible to whomever you want to share it with. It's pretty cool.

As for the pink you saw, chart it with a white baby stamp with spots and consider it potentially fertile (count 3). I always tell clients to write down a word or two to desribe what they felt, and then a word or two about what they saw...IN THAT ORDER (because sensation trumps visuals). So if you felt dry, but saw pink your chart should read, "Dry, spotting."

Does that answer your question?

As for the acne, I would disregard it right now because there are so many hormonal fluctations going on when your body is trying to resume it's fertility. If you find that once your cycles resume that the acne coincides with your Peak, then you can start using it as a secondary sign. But for now, don't read too much into it.

I would NOT reccomend trying to convert your Billings observations to Fertility Friend. Their mucus descriptions are just too limited to be able to identify a Peak or a BIP. Their mucus options are also a strange mix of sensation and visual observations, so you couldn't accurately describe your sensations using it. This is inadequate for Billings because knowing exactly what you observed is necessary for recognizing Peak, recognizing a Basic Infertile Pattern, and so forth.

I signed up for 6 months with the nfpcharting site. I checked your name to share my chart with you. I am a little concerned that because I had bleeding approx once a month, but didn't peak in those months, that the site broke up my cycle into 4 or 5 cycles.

My WOOMB instructor sent me a message I am a little confused about and don't want to post here and possibly confuse anyone else, so I will probably PM it to you if you don't mind.
