I got my periods this morning and I am THRILLED about it. I am so excited. I’ve never had a normal cycle, ever. Ever since I started my periods way back in the days of ox wagons and shoulder pads, I’ve always had v irregular cycles. 100 days long, then 40 days, then nothing for ages etc. I never even thought I ever ovulated, at least not without help. Well, the couch incident proved that I can actually ovulate on my own, albeit about once every 17 years or so. A bit like Halley’s comet, only less often.
As you know, I was going to track my cycle this month with that fertility monitor gadget thingy. Just in case I maybe, kind of, POSSIBLY felt like actually trying that old ‘s e x’ thing to get pregnant. Not that I think it will work, obviously! I mean, duh! As if s e x is going to work. (Oh please God let it work, it is my only chance).
But of course SOMEONE (no names mentioned but it was the girl offspring) dropped it on the floor and lost all my readings so that was the end of that. BUT! On CD16 I felt a funny achy kind of feeling in my left ovary, similar to what I felt the day of the couch incident. And I thought “I wonder if that could possibly mean what I think it could mean…..” And as true as Bob, here I am, exactly 14 days later with my period!!!!
DUDES!!!! DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS!!!
I had a normal cycle!! I ovulated!! Now if I actually have sex at the right time I might be in with a chance. That is if, of course, I was thinking that I might like another. Which I am not of course. Not thinking about it at all. Nope, not at all. Not even a little bit.
