    Great ep! I recommended it to a friend who has just started charting and reading TCOYF.

    I’m glad you touched on the limitations of charting. I frequent the FF forums, and I can tell you that every day–multiple times a day–someone posts something along the lines of “I’ve never had my temps or CM do THIS during my LP… am I pregnant?” Tracking CM, CP, and using OPKs are only for predicting O. Temping is only for confirming O. Nothing more. You can’t tell if you’re pregnant or not by those things. Yet, all these women obsess over every. little. thing. on their charts. ::sigh::

  3. Catching up again on the podcasts. I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants! Love you guys. This is a great one for beginners. I will definitely be giving this to a bunch of people.
