My mind is spinning

With words like "oestrogen, progesterone, ovulation, anovulatory" and abbreviations of every sort. LH, BIP, BOM, ER, BBT. I am trying to keep it all straight.

I didn't realize there were so many different forms of NFP. With no teacher in sight I am going to have to learn this on my own. There is a home study kit I can purchase and will probably end up doing so. I thank the many friends who have offered me info and support.

While I was sitting at this computer, doing all this research, here comes my oldest. Lifting up his armpit he says, "Does it look like there's more hair here?" I almost choked on my coffee. "Yep. There sure it." He walked away a bit crestfallen, I called after him, "You're becoming a real man!" Then he comes back.."when you get old does all your body hair turn white?" I said yes. He replies, "I don't want to look like a Yeti." and walked out. :) It's so darn hilarious to think that I have teenager and am possibly going to be having a newborn. I can't wrap my mind around it right now. I just laugh. It's all I can do.

So..back to work..do any of you out there in the blogosphere have experience with NFP? Anything I can add to my research will be extremely helpful.

I have also asked +JMJ+ to pick a saint for me and my family. I can't wait to see how God inspires her. She is so awesome for doing this.

I hope this helps.

If you can get hold of someone in your area that teaches it, that would be of great help to you.
If you get the basics off them, then all the reading falls into place.
