I thought I'd start a grads' QOTD and give you ladies a reason to check in, I thought perhaps ttc/pregnancy/baby questions alternated with gtky questions. Is that ok?

When ttc, do you actively chart, DTD when O-ing etc, or do you "just" take away the preventative measures?

When we were ttc dd we just stopped preventing. DH was so paranoid at first that he avoided me like the plague, even though it was a mutual decision!! It took us 7 cycles to conceive.

With this new little one I went off bc in October and I started charting to avoid. I was so used to charting that when we hit our TTC date I just kept doing it. We conceived our 1st try with this one.

I had charted to avoid for years before ttc so I was pretty aware of my cycle. I wasn't actually charting at the time but I was very aware of my fertility signs because of all the charting I had done in the past. We went for it when I knew I was fertile and used preseed. We conceived on our first try. I had bought a bunch of opks and planned to start charting again if it took more than a month or two.

As of right now we are just not preventing. I might start charting in a few months if it doesn't happen by then.

I didn't chart in the traditional since of it or take my temperature but I monitored my CM as the whole process was relatively new to me. We were more NTNP but I found that I was more inclined to want to BD when it was closer to ovulation so I guess I kinda TTCed.

Thank you Helen for my beautiful siggy!
