Which option will you take when the time comes to TTC? Will it be TTC with or without charting? Not trying, not preventing with or without checking fertile days?

I am started to lean on NTNP with a knowledge of fertile days since I am pretty regular with my cycles...I just don't want TTC to become a chore or be stressful...

I am not planning on temping and charting, but I expect to chart when my periods are (which I already do) on FF and give me a fairly good ovulation window. It's pretty obvious to me when I ovulate already--sex drive, cervical muscus, cramps, etc--so I think I'll be comfortable knowing when good timing is and making sure we DTD and hopefully just go with the flow.

If things take longer than a few months and I start to get impatient, I'm sure I will reconsider and get more precise with charting, but it's not my inclination.

I'm the same: if it takes too long and I get frustrated, I'll probably think of charting!

Since I've never had to "try", I'm sure I'll just go with the flow once I stop my BC.

Last time we TTC and I charted and I plan on doing the same again. I also use OPK's for awhile but I couldn't get accurate readings so I stopped them. Since I would like to get pg fairly quickly, I will probably chart and we will TTC. It took us 4 months with our son and might have been sooner but I was coming off the pill and I had a lack of cervical mucus.

Interesting! I have thought of using OPKs but I didn't know they could be misleading...Thanks!

My first pregnancy was NTNP, so it was a nice surprise! This time I around I will probably chart. My cycle is pretty regular, but I want to try and

I think I'd like to NTNP at first, because I'm still a little scared to get pregnant/become a parent! If I felt 110% ready I think my answer would be different.

I do think it will be hard NOT to chart, because I love research and tracking things and being obsessive. :) :) :) Maybe I'll just chart the basics of my cycles at first, no temping or anything like that.

I feel like that too: I think I'll never feel completely ready! But I've always wanted to be a mother...I just hope I do it right!
