Trying Again

My husband and I have decided that we want to start trying for our second one, and my period just started the 13th, which is good so I can start charting. I just can't remember if I have to chart during my period or not. Does anyone know? Also, my son is 6 months, so he still gets up sometimes at night for a diaper change anytime from 3-5 am. Would it be ok if I set an alarm to wake up and take my temp at 2 or 2:30? His sleep schedule makes it really hard to temp after being in bed long enough to have it count. It's al least 3 hours you have to be at rest, isn't it? Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated. Mommy brain has taken over all knowledge that I used to have of this stuff! Thanks so much!

You don't have to chart during your period...so go ahead and get started!

Thanks for the help! I've been doing it around 7, to see how it goes, because the baby usually gets up for the day between 7:30 and 8. Last night I didn't get up with him (my husband did, yay!), but I did wake up when he got up (which I think was around 4ish) and when I temped at 7 my temp was 97.70. When I had to get up with him the night before (at 4 and 6), and I temped at 7 it was 97.52, which is around what it's been other nights when I have to get up with him. Unfortunately, my husband works overnights a couple nights a week, so I can't always make him get up. We'll see how it goes. I'm fine with starting to BD in a couple days, just in case I O, and pretty much keeping going until AF shows up again. I'm pretty sure my hubby won't mind!

LOL, yea, I'm gonna guess your hubby won't mind the "in case I O" BD marathon ;-)
