I got pregnant without trying right after I got off of the pill. I lost the pregancy and we are trying again. So all of this is very new to me. I am charting with fertility friend (actually just started today). I dont understand the basal temp thing. I understand that when your basal temp goes up, that means you have ovulated, but you wouldnt know you have ovulated until after you took the higher temp. So how can you time intercource a few days before ovulation? Does that make sense? By the time your temp spikes you have already ovulated, so its too late to time intercource a few days before ovulation. My periods are all over the place so I cant really predict when I think "my fertile window" is.
Lastly, everyone abberviates everything, and I dont know what anything means. I read that New to TTGP on the top of this forum, and it said there was a key to the bbreviations, but I cant find it. Please help
