Its good that your charting but I would also get a OPK so you know when you are O. It's also good to lay down with a pillow under your hip for at least 20min after BD.

I don't chart temp, I just use OPK's. BFP.....means Big Fat Positive on prego test

BFP = Big Fat Positive
BFN = Big Fat Negative

Also, I think most of us use both OPKs and temping. OPKs help tell you that you are about to O, charting temps tells you WHEN you O'd. Paying attention to your cervical mucus helps you know that it may be your fertile time as well.

Ah right that makes sense I was wondering how you would know when you O if it isn't until afterwards you can tell if you are taking your temperature!!

Okay I am slowly learning how this all works!
