a bittersweet date

January 17th. It happened. I had noticed a larger amount of CM this morning than normal, and thought I may have been ovulating.  So I peed in a cup, dipped an ovulation test in, and lo and behold, it came back positive!  Now, for someone who only gets a boatload of negative everythings, from ovulation sticks […]
