Yah. I probably should have mentioned that my periods are about
a month apart and that I always can tell when I'm ovulating (the infamous egg white) or when it's a few days before I'm going to ovulate (more moisture); so those first few days after my period are quite safe.
I'm one of those women whose body starts to change immediately after conception. I knew the days both my children were conceived. In fact, my first doctor didn't believe me. His estimate was two weeks earlier than mine. So I ended up having to get induced; only for my doctor to say that my baby was two weeks younger than he had estimated. Of course, he forgot all about
my telling him so during our first appointment.
