Any other moms doing Natural Family Planning?

Hello. My husband and I have been doing NFP for over 2 yrs now. We got pregnant 2 months after starting it. Our son is now almost 16 months and I have been ovulating since he was 10 months old. I check my cervical mucous only. I may start taking my temperature every day as an extra precaution, but my cycles are very regular so so far I haven't needed to. It has been hard but very rewarding and we are so excited for when we decide to have another baby.

I was just wondering if any other moms out there were doing NFP and what you thought about it. Are you struggling? What method do you use?Is there any moms that were thinking about trying it? I would strongly urge taking a class or reading a book about it.

I've been using the charting method (temperature and cervical fluid) for about 2 years now. It worked really well to prevent pregnancy, (I did actually get pregnant once but that was me misreading/disregarding the chart, but I miscarried) but I do struggle now trying to get pregnant because of my strange timing and non-standard cervical fluid patterns.

I have the book "Taking Charge of your Fertility" and it's great, but I wish there was a class or something because I find it really difficult to learn from a book, and I know I'm not doing it totally by the rules.

I'm very happy to have found the method because I hate the way BC pills make me feel, and condoms are a pain. (intrauterine devices are not even an option- way too invasive)

Are you looking for something other than just other people who use it?
