So, 3 years ago, at about this same time, I came home from a family vacation 100% certain that I was finally, after 7 whole months, KU. I was late for my period, you see, by about 2 or 3 days according to all those lovely, newly discovered charting tools on fert.ility frie.nd. I’d had some pink spotting for a day during the vacation… then nothing. I remember carefully placing my hands on my stomach as I went to sleep at night and sending gentle soothing thoughts to my uterus.
Then my period started, with a vengeance, when I got home. I was devastated and remember thinking that I’d never ever feel good after that day.
But, 3 years later, I just went on our annual family vacation and except for my stepson’s annoying friend, I had an absolutely wonderful time. More than that, I don’t even know what cycle this is or what day of the cycle I’m on. Since I have a zit on my face, I guess I’m after ovulation, but maybe that zit came from rubbing sunscreen all over my face multiple times a day. Either way, I just don’t care. I am just glad to have had a week at the lake, with lots of sunsets and naps and fireworks and great food (mostly great food I made even!).
