This is a long one.
I ovulated Friday the 5th, but since then I've been thinking a lot about my ovulation pain. it was weird this cycle.
Normally I get achiness on the right side for a week leading up to O. The ache is rarely noticeable on the left, it peaks a few days before O, and clears up about a day after O.
This cycle I had achiness clearly on both sides, although it was stronger on the right. It lasted around 8 days, peaking a few days before O. Then on the 5th, at 6:15am, DS2 woke me and I noticed I was getting twinges on the left... and a few on the right. That was it for left side pain, but the right side ache continued for the rest of the day, worse than it had been the previous few days. Then it disappeared. I've had twinges on the left before (when DS3 was conceived) but I'm not sure I've ever felt them on the right.
So, I've been reading. The achiness is follicles swelling and I get it worse than most, but it's not abnormal. Apparently feeling it more strongly on the right is normal, too. The twinges are thought to the the egg releasing, and are usually only felt on one side each cycle. Achiness can appear/continue after O as tube picks up the egg.
So... I'm wondering if the weirdness adds up to two eggs. Hmm. I have a slightly higher chance this cycle because I'm still BFing my toddler and it's my first cycle since a m/c. And no, I don't really want twins. I enjoy having my babies one at a time, but if I get two, I'll take them.
