Re: Calling All TTA Charting Addicts!

Hi Katelynne! nice to "meet" you

I hope we can get a few more mamas on here...I loved being apart of that group when TTC but for obvious reasons that's not the place for me anymore.

I just got my Lea's Shield in today! yay! can't wait to try it out. I have it in and it's very comfortable...can't feel it at all...so here's hoping the dh won't be able to either. I plan on using it only for fertile/iffy times, and until my cycles come back. I'm still cycle free since having Johnny.

I had to manually override my last two charts as far as O date and coverline, because FF was wayyy off. This month its telling me it doesn't know for sure but thinks I O'd between 8 and 14 which would be way early for me, and the only thermal shift there I had was three days of a fever lol I like the charting but not the interpretations.

Re: Calling All TTA Charting Addicts!

all of your charts look CRAZY compared the charts in the NFP manuals. it's kind of making me rethink NFP, how can you even tell when you're going to ovulate lol?

My charts normally are pretty decent, but I'm in the process of weaning my DD and my wake up times are super erratic and I often don't get a 3 hour stretch of sleep.

It's important to chart for a few months before really relying on NFP/FAM as BC. You need to see your own patterns and then it becomes a lot easier to check.

My temps and CF show pretty well. I also have secondary signs like feeling really cold an my legs aching around ovulation. I'm still figuring out the cervical position changes, as that doesn't seem to show a super clear pattern in my charts, but its still nice to be able to double check.

Re: Calling All TTA Charting Addicts!

Veronica...because I'm still bf'ing my chart is insane LOL I'm temping, but it's erratic. For me I know I'm fertile due to my cervical mucous and positioning. That doesn't change...so even though I'm bf'ing, my temps will be weird but cm will tell me. My temp will let me know once I've ovulated, so isn't a good predictor for pre-o at this time LOL

it's actually pretty easy, and 98% effective! maybe more actually

Ooh ooh, pick me!

I actually DID join the TTC charting group anyway LOL

I figure I will be there around this time next year anyway...

BUt yeah, a TTA centered charting group is a brilliant idea.

Re: Calling All TTA Charting Addicts!

Jessica, welcome!!! I LOVED that TTC charting group...but alas I'm DONE with being pregnant. Not that I wouldn't love to have lots more kids, but certain circumstances prohibit that for us. I love the journey of birth, right from TTC to the actual birth. I think that's why I became a doula and cbe LOL so that I can continue my birth obsession without actually having tons of kids
