I have tried to do this on my own for one month and I really don't know what I'm doing. I didn't do temperatures, which now I will change that. I have no ovulation mark on top of that. It was our first month of semi-trying so no big deal, I didn't really expect anything to happen. I just don't want to get stressed out and prevent myself from getting prego. Any recommendations? Weekend getaways, foods to eat, etc. I'm just really confused. I will try to copy my chart, but no guarantees I can do it.

Hi and Welcome :)

Well I think I need to hear some more details about you before I can offer any thoughts or suggestions :) Are you nursing your baby right now and if so, how old, how long, how frequently? Have you had AF back for long? How long etc. ?

There are some good suggestions in the TTC Fact Sheet in the Mommy Talk folder and if you need any tips on temping ect., there is lots of good help to be found on this board :) It is far more fun to share this journey with other like minded mommas so I hope you stick around!

Have you had egg white cervical mucus (EWCM)? Are you having regular cycles?

Read the FAQ and give us some more info. :O)

D'oh! is still how I feel many times. I have been temping since July, got AF back in Aug (vitex, vitex, vitex, and a little b complex and time didn't hurt.) I mostly rely on temps and try to pay attention to my CM. It's mostly non-existent while BF it seems for me. Anyway, others have all these cute "siggys" and know all the lingo and how to post neat stuff. And me? I just muck through. I did however ask for help, and figured a few things out. Posting my FF chart was actually pretty easy. Here's the steps I follow. And if you wanna put your chart with the rest down further on the board, I'll be happy to stalk it for you. ;P

1. From your FF chart, go to set up homepage (just above your calendar)

2. At the top will be your Charting Homepage Web Address. Hilight and right click to copy

3. right click to paste into the body of your post

If you are posting a chart from iVillage and not Fertility Friend, I'm not sure how it's done. When I wanted to post my chart, I couldn't figure out how to find the darn url or whatever it is!

Good luck and stay in touch. Baby dust to you!
