Charting to Avoid - MARCH 2013

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 


flower.gif March 2013 flower.gif


Welcome to the February 2013 charting to avoid and fertility awareness thread. We are all at different stages in family planning and our own fertility. Some of us are very ardently Charting to Avoid (CTA); some are CTA but would be thrilled with a BFP; and we even have a few who are "whatevering" or pregnant and continue to hang out here.


If you did not post last month, you may have been deleted from the list. If you have joined recently, please double check I have your chart linked correctly. If you were mistakenly deleted, you would like to be added/removed, or you spot anything you would like me to change, please post or PM me to let me know. Remember, you must post in January if you want to be on the February list!


To those who are new, welcome! Welcome.gif

Ok, so March is somehow halfway over without us having a new thread - haha. Sheepish.gif  Hope nobody minds me starting one, better late than never! How is everyone doing?  Anyone still out there? I'm currently waiting to O, but it should be a while.

Four successful cycles of FAM under our belt - hooray! orngbiggrin.gifbanana.gif

I'm struggling with migraines that I think are hormonal...ugh. They get worse near ovulation.  Anyone else notice a pattern with headaches now that they are charting?

Hi Ladies!  I am kind of new to the mothering.com forums and wanted to say "Hello".  I have been taking a break from charting but want to get back to it.  I think I might have O'd yesterday.  How long has everyone been or planning to CTA?


dreamingtree, I tend to get more headaches the week before my period.

Hi, wwjc!  I think everyone has moved over to the new CTA Spring 2013 thread for the most part. 


Here's a link: http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1380111/charting-to-avoid-spring-2013


AFM, we've been charting for 5 months now & I love it! thumb.gif
