1) Blushing Bride
Check out the snazzy picture I added. This is from our wedding in 2002, so it's a bit of false advertising since it shows me a good 20 lbs. ago. But since I plan to get back to this weight, I'll let this be my motivation. Meanwhile, isn't Kevin just the cutest thing you've ever seen? :-)
2) Garden Pests
Remember how my last post bemoaned my missing ovulation? Well, everyone swung into action. Apparently my ovaries just wanted to be publically humiliated and berated before they'd get off their lazy, dusty asses and make some noise.
Yesterday, when I dipped my OPK into the pee, the test line came up before the control line. Yikes. And it was so dark, it's like it was neon. I'd say that's a pretty strong positive. This is all pretty meaningless since DIY cycles are a giant joke around here, but at least my ovaries aren't completely defunct and headed to Tahiti on a jetliner.
I didn't have the half dozen usual O symptoms since my boobs weren't as sore, and I didn't feel that tell-tale twinge in one of my ovaries. But I had EWCM. Lots of it. I mean lots. Like a gross amount of lots. Hence the 2nd part of the title for this post. I've got 2 words to describe it: slug trail*.
*Yeah, that's pretty gross. Hopefully I didn't offend anyone with that, and hopefully none of you are visual enough to get a mental picture of me slithering across the floor leaving slime in my wake.
