so did 2.15 miles today in… well, more than 20 mins. Yes I am a sloooooow runner.
Tomorrow I am running 3 miles. Good stuff.
Onto another topic – something I was thinking about while running.
When we first started trying to get pregnant, there was a lot of magic and mystery about it. Would it work? Would it not?
And as each month passed and my cycle got weird and I never got a positive OPK (ovulation predictor kit) result and all signs were pointing to something being wrong and then test results confirmed that we did have a few challenges, the magic and mystery of making a baby started to diminish.
The art and science of making a baby replaced the magic and mystery.
I say art because for as much as the science tells you about yourself and your cycle…
it changes EVERY month.
And it’s not because I am especially screwed up – every woman is like this (maybe not to these extremes…). No two cycles are the same…
Last month, the follicles didn’t mature. I didn’t get a positive OPK.
This month, they were mature several days before normal and I have had a positive/smiley-face OPK for FIVE DAYS. What does that even mean? Is that humanly possible?
(Side note: In my mind, I picture little ovaries turned into egg-making machine guns, spraying eggs everywhere. In my mind, I think, “We’ll probably have a litter of kids!” I am mildly delusional.)
So yeah, smile away little OPK tests. Smile away. 🙂
