CD8, Relaxed and Groovy

It’s CD8 today and the, uh, floodwaters have abated. Hooray! I haven’t had a period that heavy in ages. It looks like it might even have wrapped up tidily, without the lingering spotting. I’ve very rarely gotten such an abrupt finish. I mention this mainly because, well, things are different from past cycles, and different must be good.

(Different = good is part of my positive thinking approach. Therefore I’m not considering that very heavy periods can be associated with various reproductive disorders. Damn it, it’s a good sign!!)

Hubs went out of town for the weekend for some car show or something, so I’m looking forward to 2 long days of relaxing quietly with my knitting and streaming Netflix. Ahhh.

Looking forward, the following weekend is a camping trip – hooray! However, there are complications. See, next Thursday is CD14. Now, I haven’t ever ovulated on CD14, but, you know, each cycle is like a new adventure in the crazy world of my reproductive system – and CD14 is sort of the near side of the ballpark for guessing when it could happen. Anyway, the nights of CD15 and 16 will be spent in a tent. You may see where this is going (i.e., I’m talking about sleeping bag sex here!!). It’s further complicated because we’re going camping with another couple. Separate tents, yes – so it’s not out of the question. I mean, we’ll do what we have to do. I’m not going to deny the egg-white, if it makes an appearance.

Funny enough, when planning the camping trip with our friends, over some drinks, the phrase “awkward, uncomfortable sex on the cold, hard ground” did come up in conversation.

  1. personally, i love sex on the cold, hard ground. especially when it’s outside. =)

    YAY for positive attitude!

  2. how you doing? still relaxed and groovy? i haven’t been camping in forever! r and i were going to go last weekend, but the state of oregon was covered in rain. fun camping and fishing times were not to be had, alas.

    you could always squeeze in a precamping romp and then, you know, take a shower together when you get home 🙂

    • Relaxed and groovy, aye. Mostly, anyway. The problem with just bookending the trip is that it’s TWO nights instead of just one. I can’t make peace with skipping two potentially good nights in a row! So if I see good mucus, I’m finding a way, dang it. 🙂

      I hope you and R get a chance to do a camping trip without rain. It’ll probably get a lot harder to manage those for a while!
