Easier. I'm practically oblivious now.
The first month the IUD came out I had all sorts of symptoms and what looked like a triphasic pattern and a late period and a faint pink line that turned into no pink line and a period the next day. I was sure I was pregnant practically from O-day and it was a real bad let down...and I'm not even sure what happened, if I was pregnant or not.
I wanted to experience every moment of pregnancy that I possibly could, and didn't want to miss the first 2 weeks. But keeping such close watch on myself, only to not even know exactly how it ended, was harder on me than maybe missing the first 2 weeks.
I am still charting, but often forget to check cervical fluid, use my little microscope, and I'm much better at doing wait and see. We are good at BD on a regular and frequent basis, so what would I do differently if I followed all that? Not much. I don't do 2WW discussion boards; I don't dwell on it much even though I do rub in progesterone cream now. But I do test as soon as Fertility Friend says it's time. At first I thought this would stop the wondering but then I decided I'm not sure their O-day is always right on, and last month I found myself considering not testing and just waiting.
