So I am reading "Taking Control of Your Fertility" right now and I am learning how to read my body. I have been recording my CM wrong because I am calling EWCM sticky and creamy EWCM because thats what I thought it was supposed to be. If I am reading my body right I should be ovulating right around this time. I still have a lot of reading to do, so we will see if I am doing this right, but from now on I am just going to record what I see regardless of how crazy or unlikely it seems. We'll know in a month or two if I'm right. Sorry I posted this kind of pointless paragraph but I'm very excited. For the first time ever I feel like I know what the heck is going on.
FreedEm11: I was sooo excited after reading that book and told a bunch of my female clients it was the most interesting book I've read in years. I used to get a lot of CM and never knew and always felt kinda icky about it. Knowing what it is makes me feel empowered, no longer need to feel weird or ashamed about it!
It says Bejing, but I am partial to Belgium as that's where I'm from! Hehe!
Oh, while i'm here does anyone know... I'm sure when i've used them in the past the OPK's said to DTD in the 24-48 hours following the surge showing up, but the batch i have now says to NOT DTD for the first 24 hours but to do it before 48 hours. Is this a new rule, or a different brand thing? I mean, i don't care too much because a) you gotta do it when the mood engulfs round here in Sleep Deprivation HQ, and b) i'm SURE i ovulated 20 hours after i saw the surge (and had sex 8 hours before) so i guess that's close enough for this month to have SOME chance. But still, it got me wondering...
I hadn't seen this anywhere. I plan on BDing every other day till the OPK turns positive, then every day till it turns faint again. I'm determined to catch that egg this time.
Also at this point, even though we haven't been trying for that long, I'm ready to do anything to help the process along, whether the practice is rooted in science or superstition...
