Got my period

My period came today. I had a 31 day cycle, and I think I ovulated around day 16. Since never in the 19 years that I've been getting my period have I ever kept track of it, I have no idea if that is a typical cycle. I think I will keep monitoring my temperature this month, then in March I think I will start using the ovulation predictor kits to better pinpoint when I ovulate, since the doctor thought we should practice with this before we actually try to get pregnant. So I will chart my temperature January - April, use the OPKs March and April, take May off for travel, and start trying to get knocked up in June.

19 years of periods! I feel so old.

Nope, not 30. I'm 29, and I got my period at 10. 19 years.
