Chapter 1: Introduction to Fertility Charting

    Your basal body temperature BBT is the temperature of your body at rest. For fertility charting, the temperature is always taken in the morning before you move or get out of bed.About half of all couples will get pregnant after 5-6 months of trying to conceive, and 85% will be pregnant within one year. But fertile couples who know when they are fertile and who make love frequently during their fertile days, have a better chance getting pregnant sooner.

    How do you become one of these couples and increase your chances of getting pregnant earlier? You should try finding out exactly when, and if if, you ovulate. By charting your basal body temperature (BBT) you can learn more about your fertility and keeping a BBT chart is a very exciting way to get pregnant. It makes you understand your body and often gives trying to conceive (TTC) more of a purpose.
