Hello and welcome! I wish you luck in the coming months!

I don't chart myself, but there are many women here who do, I'm sure they'll help!

Hi Welcome!! Im Angie and DH is josh We just started TTC again as we have 2 little boys Payton 4 and Carson will be a year...

i also Just started Temping.....You need to buy a Basal Body Thermometer Whick u can buy at walgreens or walmart .... U need to take ur temp at the SAME time everyday, either Vaginally or Orally, Also u need to have at least 3 hours of consecutive sleep.... Here is the site most of us use to keep track of our temps, it charts it for you!! When u join they will also tell u exactly how to do it!!! hope this helps!!

welcome! I don't chart, but I use opk's. I get mine from the internet because they are cheaper, but you can also get them at the stores. Hopefully you will get your eggie soon!

Welcome! I'm Sara, wife to Jaysen, and SAHM to Cassidy (3) and Joel (17mos). We are also TTC our third, and this is my 8th cycle.

I'm sorry to hear of your health issues but I'm glad they're resolved now! Good luck! I know you'll love it here; these girls are great and very informative.

About the charting, I second everything Angie said. You need a BBT thermometer, a consistent time to chart, and somewhere to record your temps. There are a few different TTC sites now that are free where you can keep your charts, and most of them have detailed tutorials as well. I believe the most common is Fertility Friend. While you do need to pay for the premium service, the basic one is free. Hope that helps!

to the board! I hope you get that BFP (Big Fat Positive = + pregnancy test) quickly! I recommend checking out Ovulation Calendar and Ovulation Chart - Fertility Charting It's a website where you can keep track of your temps and CM (cervical mucous) and everything. They also have "charting school" to walk you through how to do it!

Ok so this morning I tested for ovulation , got negative.. the first day of my period was 11/24 it lasted about 3 days so today is day 8 I guess im to early to test positive right?
I wont start doing BBT for now I would only do OPK and see what happens... hopefully ill get a BFP soon... but rewind to the first day of my period.. I got a like 5 drops of blood discharge two days before my period started and then it turned into pinkish for like a few hours only next day I was totally clean and the next day AF showed up.. so weird, anyways If it wasn't because my period just passed i would swear I was preggers cus Im have some preg. symptoms specially early in the mornings... ( I guess I'm just anxious).
