We certainly have been doing well lately, haven’t we? While I know we have our moments, I am sensing that U are warming up to the idea of us working together, rather than at odds with one another.
I’ve been doing some research and I think I’ve figured U out! Well… I’ve figured U out a bit.
I’ve noticed that when the nausea kicks in there is oftentimes a full moon. A few years back I noticed this same trend as I was tracking your activity on mymonthlycycles.com. Now I am not one to believe much in astrology, but I have read a bit on lunar phase fertility and am convinced U share a relationship to the outer galaxies.
However, since both U and the moon are not easily accessible to me I am at a bit of a standstill. Of course, given the good grad student that I am, I turned to the internet and books to see if I could find some answers.
Here is what I discovered:
- Each month the moon goes through phases over a period of 28 days. 28 days… interesting.
- U are most fertile when the moon is in the same phase as when I was born. I guess I will have to go back and try to find a calendar from the year I was born. I find this discovery to be incredibly interesting, especially given all the problems many women have with getting pregnant. If lunar phase fertility works, it could change the way conception is viewed.
- You can also determine the sex of your baby by identifying the moon phase of the day you conceived with the astrology sign associated with that phase.
- Lastly, there is a chance that U can be fertile more than once a month especially because U don’t follow a ‘normal’ 28 day cycle.
Within my research I also found that like U, the moon has gotten much flack from the medical world. This I find surprising because before doctors and the calendar year, women had just U and the moon as their fertility guide. It is kind of sad how far we have strayed from what U desire of us. I bet a return to the moon and natural menstrual care would do a whole lot of good not only to U but all the other U’s out there who have been mistreated. While I am not so sure of the guarantee of tracking U alongside of moon phases, I am tempted to map out a few ideas over the next few months to see if I can find any patterns. Although I don’t consider myself to be included in the category of ‘wanting to get pregnant’, I do want our monthly experience to be healthy, and somehow I think that means a return to a time when life and U were a whole lot simpler.
