My very first cycle off BCP, I tried temping before I ovulated and after ovulation, and my chart wasn't very clear and I stopped because it was stressing me out. Then I didn't temp at all and I was hoping to just get pregnant. So yeah Cycle 6 was my second time ever temping but I consider it the first time, since Cycle 1 was like an experimental period. Vaginal temping for the win, ya'll. Try it out! However, I ordered a new BBT, the one they recommend in Taking Charge of Your Fertility (I also ordered that book, I want to actually read it even tho I know lots of tidbits already)- mine sucks because I can't hear the beep and there's no backlight, and it doesn't remember my last temp. So I look forward to trying out a couple new things. Last night DH was teaching me some techniques for cutting vegetables (he is a chef) and he said "See, we have to make good use of the time you have while you're not pregnant"... lol. I agree! Trying to make the best of it and learn all we can before a baby comes home.
