I read some article once that said women tend to dress up more around O time. Our body chemistry causes us to subconsciously choose brighter, flashier colors, maybe wear more makeup, take more risks fashion-wise, etc. Apparently we want to look pretty to attract our mates.

If that's true, I must be close to O. I almost always wear the same 5 outfits to work every week, and they're pretty dudly: Pants, sweaters, ugly old flats. Blah, blah, blah. But today I got the urge to kick it up a notch! I've got on a skirt, heels, and a cute top I haven't worn in at least a year. I even swapped the ol' Chap-Stik out for some tinted lip gloss. Oh yeah. I'm putting my sex appeal out there. And it totally works. I think hubs was almost drooling as I left for work. Thanks, nature!

So, it's CD12, and I'm pretty sure I saw some EWCM last night. Nice! I'm wondering if the royal jelly is helping me out in that department. Lord knows the green tea hasn't been doing much the past 3 or 4 months. But I've been taking RJ for 6 or 7 weeks now, and last C I had a boatload of EWCM. Whatever it is, I'm grateful. It saves me money on PreSeed!

Speaking of green tea, I've pretty much stopped drinking it, at least until I run out of my hippie herbal teas (which is going to be very, very soon). I'm sorry, but there's only so much tea a girl can drink! I've been really bad about the raspberry leaf tea too, but whatever. Between the RJ, 'fertili-tea,' all my vitamins, and the Clomid, I think I'm doing pretty well! What more can the fertility gods possibly ask of me?? I'm only human!!

Okay, clearly I'm getting delirious and should probably go eat lunch. Hubs made me a sandwich! He even put a note on it. What a man :)

Oh but I wanted to ask, do you find that you tend to dress up/primp more around O time?

Come to think of it I do. The rest of the month I don't care but about three or four days in a row I wake up early and get all gussied up. Too bad they can't bottle that up and sell it as a tea. You could call it Fauxovulation. Sounds sexy right.

I never thought of that, but I would have to say I do. Interesting!

I've heard of that too, I've never really noticed but I tend to do things to make DH "notice" me on fertile days. Wahoo for fertile CM!! Go RJ go!

Hmm... yesterday evening, I got a +OPK and that day, I had gotten all gussied up before work. I think there's somethin' to it!

Not that it did me any good. Lexapro's libido-killing antics over-rode Allison Dressed Up and the hubby wasn't interested. He complimented me, but damnit, compliments don't give me swimmers.

We're like peacocks :) I don't ovulate (at least that's what I think the bcp does), but there are definite certain days where I'm suddenly in the mood to pretty myself up. My hormones are a whack job tho :)
