I started charting, but I have a serious problem:
I often have to pee desperately when I get up. I totally forget about charting, then I go back to sleep.
Also, even if it weren't for the peeing, I never get up at the same time each day (I'm self-employed)! Is there any way for me to accurately chart??? I did it for over a month and my temps were ALL OVER the place!!!!"
I get up at 6am for work, so to do my charting, I set my alarm for 5am, that way Im not likely ready to pee yet like I am at 6am. I have my thermometre right next to my alarm which is right next to my bed so I dont have to do any more than move my arm. Then I get another hour sleep :). It seems to be working for me like that
I'm really such a newbie. I had to do a bit of research to be able to understand all the abbreviations. I needed to know why a menstruation period is called AF and why sex is termed BD. Haha.
I don't know why either are abreviated the way they are but what does that matter?
AF= Aunt flow
BD= Baby dancing
Hi i'm new to this board/site and have started to input my charting information into the calendar but is there a way to see an actual chart so that you can see the trends? I saw somewhere on the site that it said to input your last missed period but i dont see anywhere that specifically asked for that or allows me to choose that option. Can you give me some guidance?
