@BrideofGroomzilla:  Good for you! My husband and I are NTNP, leaning more towards the preventing side. We got pregnant first cycle of this (currently in the process of chemical pregnancy). I have started to obsess a little going through all of this now, but my husband and doctor both talked me down. We are just going with the flow of things. Sad about the chemical pregnancy because of course no one wants for that to happen, but at the same time we aren’t quite ready to be parents (again, if it happens it happens!). I am going to let me hormones get back to normal and hopefully stop worrying. We have been doing natural family planning, which makes me wonder because like I said, I got pregnant that way! Again, we will see what happens.

Good luck to you my friend. Just enjoy your time with your fiance and have a WONDERFUL 2014:)

@BrideofGroomzilla: With this being our 4th cycle TTC, it’s still pretty early days for us, too, but I am also feeling obsessive about it. I think I might join you ladies soon! I am down to my last 6 OPKs, and I’m not planning on ordering any more.

I’ve also been charting for almost 2 years (not for TTC purposes that whole time, though). I haven’t fully decided yet if I want to stop charting for a bit. I like knowing when I need to be on period patrol so that I don’t get any surprise bleeding catching me off guard. But on the other hand, they’ve been pretty regular, so I might be able to get away with letting go of the charting, too.

Unfortunately NTNP isn’t an option for me because I have endometriosis every month off the pill makes my Endo worse. I also need to time things well due to some issues with Darling Husband, so I gotta keep the OPK’s, but I am definitely quitting POanyS starting this month. Too many BFN’s and I’m getting (getting-hah who am I kidding right?) neurotic.
