Ovulation acne

For the last year or two I have been having acne before my ovulation. Usually about a week before I break out terribly and by the time I ovulate I don't even want to leave the house. It's a very strange thing really. Surely nature wants me to procreate, so why does it make me look like a swamp monster during my most fertile days? Couldn't think of better birth control than being as reclusive as Dracula on a sunny afternoon.

I am considering going for my first insemination round next week when I ovulate. Exciting and very scary at the same time. It feels a bit weird to choose an anonymous donor. I hope my child, if there is one, won't blame me for that. Sometimes I wish I had a crystal ball, so I knew I was doing the right thing. I guess only time will tell.

I endulged in buying some heavily discounted maternity wear. Sadly, I don't have my old maternity wear anymore. My previous partner decided to keep that (and anything valuable) as well as the baby's clothes. It's annoying, because I paid for all of it myself. On the positive side I get to buy new things and enjoy the process. I'll put off buying baby items until I am actually pregnant though. Trying to be a bit sensible, ahum.
