Oh, I hope this works, I had trouble finding my post again and then I had to figure out how to reply.
Thank you everyone =) I was actually afraid I'd get the same flack here that I know I'll be getting from family (You're still in school, you're sick, you're not "stable", etc, etc) It was so nice to read none of that! I was also afraid I may have offended someone by referring to "conception science" as an experiment. If I did, I didn't mean to! I just remember that last two weeks of my pup's mother's pregnancy, I was taking her temperature three times a day to determine when she was going to give birth. She started liking the thermometer because it meant treats.
I, on the other hand, did not have so much fun with the thermometer!
