Hi!  I read this section often.  We are really doing nothing - lots of avoiding right now.  DS is 14 months now and I got pregnant with him when DD was 19 months with no period in between.  I am still with no period yet.  I "track" CM but it seems for the past month there has never been 3 dry days in a row.  I know/think I have POCS - I see the doctor on Friday for the blood results but already know I have cycsts. My doctor and I will talk about using birth control or charting on Friday.  I want to chart but my cycles are all over the map and it is very difficult.

According to OPKs (I wasn't charting) it's totally possible that is how we conceived DS - DH left to go on a camping trip with his friends, and I was bummed we'd missed our shot when I got the closest-to-positive OPK in that cycle four days later (never had a stark positive) - only, low and behold, he returned to a BFP. orngbiggrin.gif


It's also possible, of course, that I messed up the OPKs, that it was 3 days really, not four, etc...but it could happen.

The new thread is up!  I did some housecleaning, so if you have been deleted from the list, but would like to be relisted, let me know.  Also, if you have a chart to link to, let me know...although I will need instructions on how to do that, 'cuz I have noooo idea!  Lastly, I deleted the "Graduates," because I have not kept up on who has gotten pregnant, and it was probably way out-of-date.  :)
