Today Kate told me that she is PUPO (Pregnant Until Proven Otherwise). I think this is a really silly acronym, and kind of funny that somebody came up with it, but yes, I guess she is PUPO. So we have to wait a week and a half now to see if all of our hard work paid off.
Ok, so baby making isn’t exactly hard work, but we definitely had a sort of funny night on Thursday when we knew the time was right…for everything but our libidos. Kate’s OPK was positive on Wednesday which meant that Tuesday-Thursday were the prime days for “having relations”. Wednesday we had a “nice” evening, but we agreed that we should cover all our bases on Thursday too. But I had worked a really long day on a shoot and didn’t get home until 10pm and had another early shoot the next day. Without getting too specific, let’s just say this was one of the first times in my life that when presented with the option of having sex that I really was not interested (and Kate, I love you, you know it was not you). I made this perfectly clear, but was not trying to back out of my responsibilities. I just wanted my case known. Kate was pretty much in the same boat, but was a little more adamant that we had a job to do. I think she found it quite funny that I was in such an abnormal state; I doubt I have EVER turned down sex.
Fortunately, as a guy, this small speed bump of not wanting sex was quickly overcome and we took care of our business and all was good.
And for all those discussing the possibility of twins because of her giant pair of follicles… you are scaring me!
