Ok, maybe the title is a little much, but looking back, I'm just a little surprised at what happened. Just curious if this has happened to anyone else...
So, I'm not charting right now, not TTC, totally convinced on 3 year child spacing.....but this cycle when I ovulated...it was crazy. I got good ewcm, wanted to attack anything that was male, felt super strong O pains on both sides, tiny bit of brown O spotting the next day, had a bunch of unprotected "getting fresh" time with the hubs......knowing full well that I was fertile and could get pregnant...and that I don't want to be pregnant......but the rest of my body was like "shut up you stupid brain." I could not get myself to care. It's seriously like ovulation just took over my mind. It's not typically me all. Usually the most that happens is I get a couple days of ewcm and might bd once during that time. might. ...but O pain, spotting, insane libido, and reckless abandon IS unusual for me.
I know this is the TTC forum, and everyone here is trying to get pregnant, but I find this stuff all pretty fascinating, and just wanted to shoot the breeze about it and see if anyone's btdt.
sounds like it was meant to be!
Yes, that was me for a few months before conceiving ds. We were not TTC and had in fact talked about perhaps not even having a second child. But after dd night weaned it was like boom! My fertility returned with a vengeance and the ONLY time I was at all interested in DTD was when I was obviously fertile. And I was definitely interested! Dh was so excited about the increase in BDing that he didn't seem to care about the risk either.
I saw this article last night and wanted to pass it along when I saw your thread. It's amazing what our minds will do, whether we want them to or not! http://healthland.time.com/2011/06/24/is-he-gay-ovulating-women-can-tell/?hpt=hp_t2
My son is just a few weeks younger than yours and I just went through the same thing not too long ago. Luckily nothing happened! I'm still torn about a 4th, but I know DH is definitely a no go with that right now.
