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 15 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.

We are! Are you using NFP or the Fertility Awareness Method (do you use condoms during your fertile time?) We've used NFP to have our (almost) three children. When we got married it took us a year to get pregnant, but only three months once we started actively using NFP. I check it all- cervical position, firmness, and mucous, and temp. I love knowing exactly when I've ovulated (and therefore when my period will be and then, exactly how far along I am in a pregnancy). I love love love love. it. I know it can sound daunting, but once you start, it comes so easily. We read Taking Charge of Your Fertility, and I made my own charts on my computer, because i didn't like those ones. They also offer classes every once in a while at our church. How are you finding it? I love to talk about it, message me anytime!
