Mittelschmerz.

Two posts in one day!  This is craziness.

I mostly just need to share this incredible factoid I found while googling “back pain and ovulation” (are you shocked?).  According to Livestrong.com, “Lower back pain associated with ovulation is known as “mittelschmerz,” which comes from the German words for “middle” and “pain.”

Mittelschmerz.  The more you know.

I’m now even more desperate to know whether or not I’m ovulating because I can’t wait to tell people I’m suffering from mittelschmerz.
