Here's to peeing on sticks!
I am mid cycle number two since my surgery. The good news is a few of my symptoms seem better. The bad news is that one of those symptoms was the bloated painful ovulation. So now I have no way of knowing if/when I ovulate. I have joined the ranks of the scores of normal women who have no freakin clue when to get freaky. So back I go to the pleasure of temperature charts, mucus and pee sticks. Post op this filled me with dread, but right now, having gone through two physically uneventful ovulation cycles, I am feeling the urge to map out my mysterious new me. Maybe I can even justify getting a new shirt by calling it a "lab coat". Dorky, yes, but I realize I may have to approach this like an adult version of "making potty training fun by having little boys pee on cheerios for target practice". I will keep the discharge checking completely professional. That's the kind of business that should never be mixed with fun.
