So its cycle day 14 and most women would be actively trying to get pregnant at this point. Not me! This is the day that a lot of women think is the magical ovulation day. So many women assume they ovulate on day 14. A lot of these women are not getting pregnant because they don't really know when they ovulate. I read a statistic that 15-20% of couples struggle to get pregnant because they don't really know when they are ovulating and therefore are not timing intercourse correctly. Charting is a great way for a women to tell when she is ovulating. Charting signs such as Basal Body Temperature and Cervical Mucus are two good signs that may help with determining ovulation. I still have another 17 days until my predicted ovulation day. No signs of ovulation are present that would signal me to think otherwise. So I am still playing the waiting game.
Meanwhile, my 8 month old is starting to show separation anxiety from me. I leave the room and she starts to cry. I thought this would happen at a later age, but I guess it is normal. Just another sign that my baby girl is growing up way to fast. Lately I have been trying to imagine myself as a mother of two and am having a hard time seeing it. That doesn't say much considering I couldn't picture myself as a mother of one before I had my daughter either. Looking back I barely remember pregnancy. I remember what happened, but I don't remember what it felt like, and I don't remember what it was like to have a big belly in front of me. I look at my stomach now and wonder how in the world it stretched that big and now it looks normal....I am excited to feel it again, god willing.
