How did you first hear or learn about charting?[/b]
My Mom was the first I think. She explained CM very basically when we talked about puberty and AF, so I wouldn't think there was something wrong if I saw CM. I heard about it more in depth in high school and before we got married we took our first charting class.
I learned about it here. Everyone keeps telling "oh, that must be so hard" I say what???? You just need to pop a thermometer in your mouth every morning and put your temperature into the computer. Not even 5 minutes and you are done. (I guess it's harder if you chart CM and so on...)
I'm glad I started though because this month I ovulated on CD21 so I would be going crazy this week thinking I was late if I hadn't charted my temps.
Not many (if any) people I know have heard of charting, even those I know who have TTC for a long time. I know people who've used OPKs but not temp charting. Odd huh! It's the easiest method I know to keep track of cycles!
