Here's your weekly TMI posting:
I've been reading a book called Trying Again.
I love it.
The first time Jay & I got pregnant, it only took two months.
This time has proven to be a bit trickier.
So, I started reading the book.
While I was reading yesterday, I came upon a paragraph that said, "just before the woman ovulates, she is most fertile."
Okay, duh - we already know that.
But THEN I read the next sentence - "once she ovulates, the possibility of getting pregnant slams shut."
SLAMS SHUT people.
Now, I was paraphrasing the book - but it DID use the term "slams shut."
Doesn't sound too hopeful right!?!
So this month, after chatting with a girlfriend (thank you Corrin!), I started using an ovulation kit (which test for your LH surge - which your body produces right before you ovulate).
Just to see what's going on with my body.
I think of it as getting to know myself.
A research project if you will.
Let me tell you something.
The book was right!
Check out these tests from day 19 - 21 of my cycle (ya, apparently I'm a late ovulator) ...
You see that?
You see that slam shut?
Day #19 ... no LH surge yet.
Day #20 ... today is the day
Day #21 ... SLAM SHUT!
Crazy stuff I tell ya.
