Here’s a little preface before I jump right in. Starting in January, I vowed to take more control of my fertility and begin charting and tracking my ovulation. I hadn’t been on birth control since October and, although we were pretty “careful”, I didn’t want to take a chance. Our plan was to start trying in August/September in hopes that we would get pregnant on the first or second try and when baby was born, Hubby would be off for the summer (he’s a teacher).
