Taking Charge of Your Fertility is an excellent book which teaches you all about charting your fertility signs. will give you tutorials.

ETA: There is a LOT more to tracking your fertile and infertile times than just taking your basal body temps. Temping is just the tip of the iceberg. It's the most reliable sign, but it only tells us when we've ovulated after the fact.
Thanks for the info!! I have that book and I LOVE it!!!

Since the OPKs haven't turned totally positive for me, I've been going more off my own body's signs.. I had more CM today and yesterday than earlier in the cycle, cervix seemed softer, temp dipped way low yesterday.... based off that and the fact that the last time I got pregnant I can't remember my OPK ever going totally positive either, I took those fertile signs and made sure to BD those two nights... so yep, there is definitely more to it than temping. I'm trying my hardest not to miss this egg!!
