So the other day I had a bit of twinge-y pain/cramp on my left side.

Hmm, I said. I wonder if I might be ovulating? Hah. No way. It’s probably my stomach or something.

Last night I had a bit of pink spotting.* My first thought was “oh shit” until I remembered that when not pregnant, spotting is not a big thing. Today it’s gone.

I think I might need to renew my account on Fertility Friend and start charting again.**

Not because we’re trying or anything, but just because it looks like I might want to keep track of what’s going on in there. Because I have no effing clue what that might be.

* I'm not the only one who still checks the TP, right? It's a hard habit to break.

** Can you temp if you're not sleeping for multi-hour chunks? Because I was up at midnight, 2:30, 4ish, 5ish, and 6ish last night. I think. It's all a little fuzzy.


  1. You aren't the only one lol. I've been checking the TP for three and a half years, I doubt I'll stop anytime soon.

    No idea about the charting though.

  2. I think you can still chart, though with dubious accuracy.

    And I too still check the TP--wonder if I'll ever break the habit!

    Good luck returning to FF. :)

  3. I'm thinking I'll still be checking the TP long after menopause. Such a habit!

    I'm with Jen... you can chart to your heart's content, but it might not be as reliable. I started charting when I was still getting up once or twice most nights with the Boy and mornings when I hadn't been asleep for at least a few hours before taking my temp, the readings did seem to be off.

    Good luck figuring out what's going on!

  4. I join the "I don't know" chorus on the charting when you are still getting up all the time.

  5. Still checking the TP, 2+ years later. It never ends. And even though I know it is 99.99% impossible for me to get pregnant again without IVF, I still hope maybe someone slipped under the wire.
