I've been thinking today about how long we have been TTC and some would say since last December (2007) when I started to chart, temp and use a CBFM (we tried in November but I didn't log anything down). I can't speak highly enough of charting as it is really useful not only for teaching us how to read our signs and symptoms but it can also give encouragement in a very unexpected way. Having looked through all of my previous charts on FF, I have noticed that only 6 out of 10 indicate that BD'g was ideally timed. For this reason, I could consider our TTC efforts as being over just 6 months instead of 10. Now that's got to make a girl feel better. Of course it could be frustrating too thinking about lost time, but on average it's meant to take 6 - 12 months to conceive.
