Nothing to do with babies. More to do with thirty years of her rejecting my reality and substituting her own. It wasn't pretty.
I charted for a little while long before AF returned. I was trying to avoid, not trying to conceive, but I was also hoping to see the first PPAF coming. I basically got bored and quit after a couple of weeks, though. My temperatures were low and slightly wet cervical fluid every day. I concluded I could do this for months but why bother? If I'd really wanted a baby, I would have aimed for times with EWCF. Of course, going at it like bunnies would also have the same effect. But "trying" is stressful for us so I like to target it when we can, to take the pressure off the rest of the month. The knowledge of "Tonight is THE NIGHT" makes my husband less likely to do what he needs to do. Then on nights we know aren't fertile, we can just go with the flow and not have to worry.
I had a little bit of spotting earlier today. So now I am in the other phase of waiting, the "is this just spotting, or is it really my period?" I had spotting around the time of my period when I was pregnant with my daughter. I might just go buy a cheap test to get off the roller coaster. Or I might wait a few more days. I'm kind of in "one hour at a time" mode right now anyway.
Alternately, I could take my temperatures for a couple of days, if I hadn't accidentally run my thermometer through the wash last week. Oops.
