Hi, mamas! So did any of y'all read the NYT piece
on the common and NOT Celtic or Anglo-Saxon ancestry of the Irish, Welsh, English, and Scottish folks? I thought it was so interesting. I especially like the ending, where the scientist is talking about how cultural (versus genetic) difference is really the thing that keeps us together or apart anyway.
So I started charting this month for the first time, and was really getting into it, having fun, getting to know my body and its rhythms and signs, etc. Then this morning, my chart turned up a very likely pregnancy.
I was like, say WHAT? Now, it says very clearly in the "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" book that you should chart a few cycles before relying on any fertility signs as definitive. But you know how it is. I said to myself, "You're a bright girl. You can apply everything you read in those 600 pages to your FIRST chart; no problem!" Time will tell, mamas. Specifically, 15 days or so will tell. Either way, I consider myself duly chastised and humbled by the fertility gods and goddesses!
