And they call it ovulation.

So here I am in my official week of ovulation. I've spent years getting to know my body, but not really having a clue as to why it does the things it does. And so after reading Dr. Shettles' book I know what I should be looking for and when we should get ready to do the deed. Only this week I am not so body isn't doing the things it did last month and it's got me worried! And I know that worrying is probably throwing everything off. Grrrr....

I did learn that every month when I would get this sharp pain on my right lower ab side, it was my egg being released! I always thought it was some sort of errant cramp or gas. Who knew I was one of the few that got what is called Mittelschmerz.

And today I heard on the news where children born last year will cost 204,000$ to raise by their 18th birthday. The cost takes into account food, shelter, clothing and other necessities. That's a lot of money! And I bet it doesn't even take into account the cost of college and how that is rising at every university each year. This is why we will not have more than two kids. I commend couples that want big familes...I just don't think I could do it.
