OK, TMI, but sometimes you have to put a leg up on a chair or toilet to be able to reach your cervix. When you're fertile, your cervix will be soft, high up, open and wet (SHOW). When you're not, it will be firm, low and closed.

Edited to add: I got pregnant the first time 2 months into using the TCOYF methods. We lost that pregnancy to miscarriage, and it took a while to get back to normal, but I conceived again six months after the miscarriage. I'm now 33 weeks (almost there!). I was 37 when I started charting, and I'm 38 now, so I've been very pleased with how well this method worked for me.

The Weschler book and the charting process did a lot to make me feel in control of the process. It's a lot easier to go through the TTC process when you know exactly what is happening with your body throughout. I even spared myself the overuse of pregnancy tests, because I knew from charting that my luteal (post-O) phase is 12-13 days. I wouldn't let myself use a test unless my temp was still up 13 days after my O date. If my temp went down, I didn't waste a test. When I followed this rule, I only needed one test to get a BFP on the test.

Congrats on the baby coming soon! If I am not PG this month, I will start my real charting and temp taking with my next cycle, it seems to work well for everyone who uses it! Thanks for all of the great advice
