After I went though two NFP charts and ran out of green stickers, I opted not to buy more charts and went to Excel. I'm pretty handy with that program and it works better for me when it comes to analyzing patterns. I apparently had nothing better to do Sunday night so I created a chart based on nineteen cycles with total cycle days, luteal length, last day of peak-type mucus, variation of luteal length from cycle to cycle. It was all very consistent. And depressing trying to figure out why a pregnancy hasn't happened yet.

A nerdy-cool correlation for me this month is that the last digit of my days past peak is the same as the date. So, today is peak plus 11 and it's the first of June. If we finally "make it" this time, I'll know I'm pregnant on June 7th since I've never been peak plus 16 before. No POAS for me. :)


  1. Hi! I am new reader, but you piqued my curiousity with an excel based chart. I ran out of my own charts a couple of months ago and have been trying to just jot it down in a notebook and knowing that sooner or later I am going to have to do something different. Maybe this is a crazy question - but would mind sharing your excel template? If you don't want to, know worries, I just figured, if there was already one out there I would just ask. My e-mail address is gaudium08@gmail.com. Have a great rest of the week and God Bless! - Marie (Joy Beyond the Cross)

  2. Hi JBC! Yes, I will email you the template tonight. I hope you find the postings interesting. There are so few ladies using NFP that it's good to share where we can.
