    Hi bees, first post here! I’m upto Ch6 TCOYF & excited to start charting! I’m unsure of what all these acronyms mean yet but willing to learn (is there a cheat sheet anywhere?)

    I’m buying a Thermometer at lunchtime. Period started yesterday. 1st temp to be taken tomorrow.

    I’ve signed upto FF but not too sure what i’m doing yet :/

    First Q – my period ‘started’ yesterday. Wasn’t red bleeding but more of an off coloured/light discharge.  Is that considered ‘light’ or ‘spotting’?

    Sorry, if it’s TMI!

    @Nic01:  Welcome! As i’ve learned apparently there’s never tmi around here – we all share everything πŸ™‚ the basic rule is if it is enough to need a pad or a tampon it’s your period otherwise it’s spotting.


    Once you start on FF post your link – even if you aren’t sure of what you are looking at people will stalk… I mean, look at your chart and can help you out. I was totally overwhelmed the first month but once you get a few temps in it starts getting easier and those first crosshairs (CH) are super exciting πŸ™‚


    There is a cheat sheet but I can’t find it at the moment – hopefully someone else can point you to the thread πŸ™‚ 

    EDIT: found it πŸ™‚ http://wiki.weddingbee.com/Abbreviations


    Oh and be warned this thread goes super fast so don’t worry if you cant reply to everyone – I tried that and started feeling over whelmed πŸ™‚

    @Nic01:  Welcome. Dive in. I think there’s an acronym list on the “Waititng to TTC” thread sticky in the TTC-specific forum. (as opposed to nesting). 

    I honestly only use “spotting” if it’s outside the normal range for my period. (i.e., once it happened on CD 9). Otherwise, my lunette cup goes in almost right away before/right when my period is due to start and I track that as “light, heavy, etc.”

    Okay… I’d like opinions.  So as ya’ll know I wasn’t able to temp on the 2nd (CD20).  So FF wasn’t giving me CH even though since then I’ve had three temps higher than cover line so I definitely O’d.  So I went ahead and put in a fake temp for the missing day and FF gave me CH.  Last cycle I had a temp dip then two slow rise temps then a spike.  So FF gave me CH last cycle on the 2nd day after the temp dip.  But my LP was only 10 days compared to 13 the cycle before.  So I really think I O’d before and just have a slow rise?  I assumed the same pattern this time and that’s how I came up with the fake temp.  Anyways… that’s alot of rambling to say.. when do you guys think I O’d????
