We have got it figured out! This baby making thing.
I had been using ovulation calculators the past few months so even amongst various stall tactics (see previous posts) I did always know when we were supposed to be creating life (having the sex, boinking, whatever…)
But now I’m serious. So I have graduated to the Deluxe Full-Colour Ovulation Calendar now. It’s still easy. I plug in my last start date of menstruation, my average length of menstrual cycle and my luteal phase (whatever that is- 14 is the average so I stick with it). Most calculators then give me the dates of ovulation. But this super-dooper swanky model gives me my very own calendar, complete with colour coded days of the month! Easy for both myself and Bal to understand:
White blocks- no sex necessary but open and free for fun only.
Red blocks- menstruating so chocolate and back rubs required. Now dammit!
Light Green- could possibly catch some sperm right now, but could not, so is it worth doing it now if it takes away from more viable green* later? Hmmmmm….
(*viable green doesn’t make much sense I know, but it made me think of Kermit the Frogs sperm and that is funny!)
Dark Green- Do it! Do it now! Do it again!
It’s like paint-by-numbers, only sex-by-colours. We can do this!
