Are you still charting?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey guys!  As you know, this is my first baby and I am just wondering if there is any reason to continue charting temps or anything else after you know you are pregnant?  I kept up with temps until a couple days ago and it was fun to watch, but now I am lazy and don't feel like doing anything.  Also, my VIP on FF expires today (I paid for the perfect amount of time, it turns out!!) so I am ready to let charting go unless there is any reason I should continue while pregnant?

I think you're fine to stop.  From what I've heard, after you get your bfp, the highs and lows in your chart are prone to cause unnecessary anxiety anyway.  I stopped right after my first bfp.

Yeah I stopped after my BFP too. Too lazy to temp.

I'm still temping that's the only thing I'm watching. I had a MC at 6 weeks and have had a little more cramping than normal so for me it gives me peace of mind to know my temp is still high. Call me OCD, but I temped my entire pregnancy last time and could tell the day I went into labor because my temp dropped below coverline...weird huh? I WON'T be doing that this time. While it was a great experiment...I kind of like to not have to remember. ;)
