Treatment deferred

I spoke to the NHS funding co-ordinator today and explained that we'd had our initial appointment and wanted to postpone our treatment if possible. Thankfully, she didn't think it will be a problem. Mrs T had suggested this morning that we should be looking at Easter next year, but that would cross over into the next financial year so could be problematic, so she is going to see if she can book us in for January/February.

It's a weight off our minds. If it's going to be next year then we've time to prepare for it emotionally and physically. (Spiritually, too.)

It also gives us another nine months or so to keep trying naturally, so we really want to make the most of it. Although we've been pretty aware of Mrs T's cycle and our health, we've never got into the whole temperature-taking thing to predict the best days, and aren't quite sure how to best go about it. I'm sure there's plenty of guidance out there in the world of the internet, but if anyone reading has some advice for us we'd be grateful! (Even if it's just recommendations of a good source of information.)

Hi - the best info on tracking cycles that I have found:

and the book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Weschler.

The book has all the info you could want and the website has great tracking features. FertilityFriend is free, if you choose not to do the VIP membership. I did the VIP membership until I got the hang of it all, and liked it. Best of luck...
