I caught a nasty cold from the little girl I nanny for. I had a fever of 101 Saturday, but thankfully I haven't had one since then. My weekend was most spent rest and watching tv/movies. I still have a sore throat and a bad case of laryngitis. I'm very tired and just want to go home and sleep. I ,of course, started having good CM last night and I have to see if I can convince D to use one of the next two days or the weekend. We are going to visit our parents, but I'm leaving earlier than he is, Friday won't happen and Saturday probably won't either since we are going to a newlywed party for his friends and there will be beer involved.
Last Friday, I was at a product party (where a person was selling spa and beauty products), and the topic of IF came up. It's amazing that women who have been pregnant have so little idea of how fertility works. I explained a bit about NFP, both for TTC and postponing pregnancy. They aren't Catholic and brought up if I would need to go on BC to "normalize" my cycle. I told them that I was never going back on BC and that there are other medications that will actually correct any hormonal problems. One of the girls is currently pregnant (well she's actually having a c-section today because her baby is sick) and said that they tried for 18 months and finally succeed after putting cycle info into one of those on-line calculators. I wish it was that easy.
