We just put the BC away and I want to get pg asap! I'm looking for any info that you ladies think would be helpful

dh and I are in early 30s and live healthy lifestyles and we have a 2 yo dd (she was a supprise). He works nights and I work days so our oppurtunities to "try" are kinda limited. Is there any relatively easy way to track my fertility, should I bother? I'm still nursing but have reg AF.

You should buy or check out from the library a book called "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Weschler. Most women here, including myself, treat is as a bible of the female body. It will teach you everything you need to know about charting and more. There are, of course, ovulation tests, which will let you know that ovulation is about to come. However, they do not confirm that ovulation has indeed occured. Also, charting will tell you a lot more about your body. For example, if you leuteal (post-ovulatory) phase is long enough for implantation of the fertilzed egg to be possible.
Good luck.
