Trish, I have that book too. Since I was on coumadin from a blood clot and was being so careful to not get pregnant for six months, I was charting and such to figure out how to NOT get pregnant. Charting is hard work whether you are trying or preventing! I still kind of chart, but not really. It's more to monitor when my period is on it's way. I agree though, if it takes several months, then I will probably pull out all of the stops and SERIOUSLY chart. Anyways, good luck to you and yours!

Christa I'm with you on the idea of just having fun and seeing what happens! My husband and I just started TTC this month. I bought the Taking Charge of Your Fertility book and read about charting and all of that. I decided not to do it because it just seemed too stressful. I don't need anything that would make me more obsessive about pregnancy than I am already! If I do get pregnant I will be monitored like crazy, so I'm kind of hoping to keep the TTC process as "natural" as possible! :oops: I figure that if we don't have success after several months, then I can try the charting later. Hope we both have positive news soon!

Oh I hear you loud and clear. Me too so badly,I am scared I know you are too we both lost our boys. I understand as many on here do,the feelings that come with trying again after our loss. I know like you the desire to be a mommy to a baby we get to take home and love is greater then the fear of not trying again. One day at a time for us. I know we are meant to know what it's like to take our babies home,I just know it. xo

Thanks Holly. I am trying really hard not to rush things and not get my hopes up, but it's just so hard not to get too excited... I want to be a mommy so badly.

Yep... both MFMs I have spoken with are cool with everything...in fact, one called around the time of my period just to see if I was pregnant ye (i thought that was hilarious)t. My blood pressure is great without meds, back to my pre-pregnancy weight and off of coumadin. I am personally trying to wait until we find out more about underlying conditions, but the treatment will be the same no matter what... so it doesn't really matter either way. I think it will just be nice to not have to try and prevent for a while. That takes a LOT more effort when you can't take hormonal birth control.

What a great place to be, though! That's a lot more fun than charting and doing the waiting game every month (at least I think so)!! glad you're in a comfortable place :)
