So for you, has there been anything confusing about NFP/FAM? If so, what? Was there anything that *used* to be confusing when you were first learning, but is clear now?

I picked "remembering the rules". CCL had several different rules for different situations for determining both the end of Phase I and the beginning of Phase III. I always had to use my "cheat sheet" for the lesser-used rules! I am so thankful that the rules are streamlined with the new program. I think it will be MUCH easier now!

I put combo of the above. I know most of the rules but my body seems to do it's own thing. My charts always look stinky to me. I can usually tell that I have ovulated but I get frustrated trying to pin down the day. I don't see a really strong thermal shift. My post o temps tend to be low and so it makes it hard for me to figure things out. Plus my dd is always waking me up every night so I have open circles a lot. I try really hard but she is a pain in the butt and wakes me up a lot of the time.
