NPP? NTNT?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but NPP = Not Preventing Pregnancy (thanks Kate!) and NTNT = Not Trying Not To.

BTDT Moms - any experiences to share with this more relaxed method of TTC?

Those WTT, is this something you're considering? Why or why not?

I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)

With DS, I was just tracking my periods (I have pretty regular cycles). For a couple months, I didn't pay attention to when O would actually be. At the beginning of my third cycle, I actually looked and realized I was trying too late each month. So that month, I paid attention to when O would be and we got pregnant. This time I will pretty much do the same - track my periods, see when the O window should be, and try to BD around the right time.

We did NPP because my cycles are so normal and regular and I can pinpoint O pretty well just on CM alone. I can guess which day AF will show really accurately. I really didnt want to be over thinking the whole thing too much and for me, charting and all that seemed so tedious and too focused and I would have easily gotten obsessed . I just wanted us to have fun and see what happened and it was not stressful at all. I can see the benefits for those women that love to chart but it definitely isnt for me. We were one of the lucky couples and got PG the first go around but I think that if it had (or ever will) take 6 months to get PG, I would switch to charting but we will definitely be NPP next time around too.

I have considered it, but I think I will start by tracking my cycles and perhaps buy OPKs. I definitely won't temp, at least for the first few months. I don't want to obsess over TTC overall so NPP is tempting!
