Because I’m a jetsetter with an extremely exciting and glamorous life, I will be going abroad in the very middle of this cycle, the first cycle in a loooong time when I fully intended to do everything I could to get pregnant. In fact, I might be ovulating the day I arrive in Germany all jetlagged and disgusting. I’m concerned for a few reasons. The first is the whole prospect of stumbling off the plane and insisting my husband DO me. Like maybe while waiting in line at customs. (Purpose of your visit? Ahem! Madam? Sir? Can you stop that for ein Moment, bitte?) The second is that I’ve heard international travel can disrupt ovulation. And of course I don’t do the whole charting-temping thing ’cause I’ve always relied on my fertility monitor, so I basically never know what’s happening after I see the LH surge.
Have any of you been in this position before? Any words of wisdom?
I suppose (assuming I even get a LH surge–who knows what’s going on in there…) I should just make sure we do the deed as often as possible before we leave, so that there are some sperm hanging out in case an egg comes along. Even if they’re tired and disoriented and flipping through their German phrase books.
