I'm nursing a 27 month old, about 3 times a day, and we will be TTC in 5 weeks.  We've been charting for awhile.  My son is night weaned, and doesn't nurse until 5:30AM, but we often don't catch my temp till later, and he's frequently been up such that I don't temp after 3 hours sleep. 


We want very, very, very much to conceive in October.  We get that it's not guaranteed but want to up our odds.  Looking at my chart, do you think we're doing well enough to catch the right info?


(June & July look a little different ... we're pretty sure I conceived in June, but was taking a prescription not compatible with early pregnancy, and so AF returned on time, yet I'm almost certain I didn't really O in July).

I'm not super clear on what you're asking here:


"Looking at my chart, do you think we're doing well enough to catch the right info?"



Also, you might find your charts easier to read and less jumpy if you switch to vaginal temping.  I tried it out and switched one month and the difference is amazing as far as being able to interpret the chart.  Here's mine so you can see what I mean:
