Blushing Brides and Garden Pests

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.

What a great shot! Glad to hear your ovaries 'woke up' for you. And it's pretty hard to gross out another long time TTC'er. Well, hard to gross me out, anyway ;)

Love the picture!! You look so cute!

congrats on ovulating!! I'm glad they finally got their act togheter. I never really noticed the EWCM until I really started TTC. Then it just became so much more noticable, and much more present. Yuck!

I'm glad to know there's someone out there feeling the same way I am. This blogosphere is nice that way, isn't it?

I hope your slug trail leads the way to happiness!!

I like the pic of you at your wedding :) It's nice to look at those pictures and remember happier, simpler times... (sigh)

I love the slug trail comment, however, I do think that you would glide, not slither ;) You don't strike me as a "Slytherin" :)

Very funny picture you paint of the snail trail. No offense taken here.

Such a cute photo, love our dress and you look like a gorgeous couple.

Great news about the neon line. It is always reassuring to see something works like it is supposed to.

I'm jealous of the EWCM too! I only get it, like, 10 days after ovulation. What's up with that? Good luck. And your wedding picture is lovely.

Thank for visiting my blog and such a kind comment. It was very nice to read - just what I needed.
