Know your reproductive health!

I used the last of my Hanukkah giftcard last night on this huge book about fertility, kinda felt silly buying it but holy crap, I am learning so much! I laid down in bed at 7:40 pm last night (friday night) I read straight through for 2 hrs lol I am just amazing how much we are never taught as women. I guess unless u seeked out a women's reproductive class in college, no one would tell u really simple things. Like women are only fertile 2 days out of a month and the other days if u check your temp, cervical position and fluids you could very would know there's a very small chance. Also that the sperm lives for 5 days in women. Uhhh under PERFECT conditions. You have to be at prime time for ovulation and your cervical fluid has to be just so, for that to be true. If that is not true, the sperm dies within hours. Also you don't get conceive asap after copulation. It takes the sperm hours to reach their destination and the actual implantation takes 4-5 days later while your at desk at work LOL Also if you watch your temp and chart it, you can know your pregnant before tests tell you, cuz your temp will stay higher once you do get pregnant. This isn't good stuff just for getting pregnant though, this is good for being in a relationship too. They instill so much fear into women about getting pregnant and keep up us BC. When really if you can pop a thermometer in your mouth for 30 seconds while half sleeping and write it down. You can save a lot of stress and know your body better then taking hormones. I am sure I will keep spouting off more things no one wants to know but there ya go. I had to share my excitement! lol Oh man you guys it's just gonna get better when I do get pregnant and get more and more gross. Stay tuned! Thanks again for Jen for sending me in this direction!
Yesterday I felt like garbage, but I got my 10k steps at work so missing the gym last night was ok. Scott wanted mexican, so we went even tho I wasn't that hungry. Didn't order rice and beans, just got a veggie burrito and I stuck to my guns for the night and didn't eat anything else. Still in the 150's today! Woot woot! What is it about eating a fatty meal that makes me wanna keep eating fatty stuff for the rest of the night? It's all mind or matter, man! I know sometimes it's just tiresome being hard on yourself. But it's also hard on your body being easy on yourself All the freaking time! It was a good week, wekkend is here and I am not falling off the wagon. It was so hard getting up on this stupid wagon again. You wanna push me off, you better bring a crow bar. I took my rosemaries, lavendar and baby christmas tree outside to the deck this morning!! Gonna be 50 today, so excited!!! Have an awesome weekend you guys!
