Hi all!

My name is Erica, I'm 30 and a mom to 4. (two older children are"step"..ages 12 and 9) and I have two younger daughters ages almost 4 and 2. Dh and I got married 5 years ago and quickly conceived our first daughter and then a year and a half later conceived my second daughter. Dh has 2 kiderds from a previous marriage who are with us 50% of the time. I adore them....they are my kids too! He is 14 years older than me and does not want anymore children, <<<<sigh>>>> He knows I want more and doesn't feel the same but perhaps we will revisit this in a few years because my desire to have more children of my own is beyond words.

Prior to getting married, my naive self agreed to only having one. After having my daughter, I begged and pleaded to have another which he gave into. Now, here I am yet wanting another. The truth is I always knew growing up that I wanted like 5 of my own and from the early age of even 6, dreamed about my child bearing years. When I met dh, I had just broken off a really bad engagement and was so in love with my husband to be and with the fact that he was such an awesome guy. I did convince myself, and him that having one, possibly 2 would be enough. I was wrong. =( but am thankful for my precious girls!!

LONG STORY SHORT.....dh and I are using withdrawal method. I still nurse my 22 month old and we have been using this method for a year...I've had regular cycles back since she was 6 months old. DH has also used this method in the past with an ex....years ago....and never got her pregnant. Soooooo......anything is possible, but I'm thinking he has got his timing perfect and since we never DTD two times back to back, I'm sure any leftover sperm gets washed out with urine, thus slimming the chances of sperm being in any pre-cum.

I began charting this month just to become more intuned with what my body was doing every month. I've been somewhat informed for years, but never really charted. I've always had regular cycles, have used OPK's on and off as well as note my CM. This cycle I "O" on CD14.

Questions per this cycle: (if you ladies have a minute and because you all know way more about this than I do)

About a day or so before AF comes, I usually get these night sweats, wake up cold...and that is sort of my warning that AF will be here within a day or two.

Well, for the past two days I have had these and today, 9DPO.....had a major temp drop, almost to my coverline, and I have had the night sweats. Any idea what this could mean or be?

i know it is different for everyone. for a lot of people AF doesnt come until the day that their temp falls below their cover line.
