The hubby and I decided to start actively trying a little sooner the next time, now that I have somewhat of an idea of when I ovulate. In our extensive research online, we have learned that sperm can live inside a woman's body for up to 5 days or so while waiting for the egg. I would imagine the sperm hang around like tools at a bachelor party, just waiting for the stripper to arrive. The egg, on the other hand, waits for about 24-48 hours and then bails if she does not find a sperm. She has more important things to do with her time than wait around for some guy. She will not be made a fool of. And isn't it just like a woman to keep her guy waiting while she gets ready? But a woman waits for NO man.
So, to sum up, here is what ovulation has taught me:
A woman can always arrive fashionably late. She is worth the wait. But a man better damn well get there when he says he will.
According to my due date calculator, my next estimated conception date would be March 10, and my due date would be December 1. I found this at PlanningFamily.com--They have a lot of good health info and free baby samples, magazines, etc. And it's free to join, which is nice. Check it out:
