Hi, I know I'm a lurker right now. We have decided to wait our full cycle and try again. I have a question though. How do you chart? What do you do? And how early is too early to start this thing?

My m/c is still fresh but we were talking and know we want to try again. I have never charted and I don't really understand it, but would really like to know where to begin and what I need to get started.

Hi, Beth! www.fertilityfriend.com is a great place to keep track of your chart, though you can also write it down. You will need a basal body temp thermometer and some of those come with a chart. Fertility friend has a great user's handbook and is very user friendly. You are suppose to start charting on the first day AF shows but some start midcycle. GLTY! Jacqui
