CD1 again! Time to make that Little Leo! I am forcing myself to stay positive. There will be no whining, no being sad and mopey, no sighing loudly wondering wishing and hoping. Until proven otherwise I am getting pregnant this cycle. Besides, it's my third cycle after the HSG and statistically more PG's happen in those three months than any other tme. I'm pretty sure I O'ed on the left two cycles ago, and on my right this last cycle, so with any luck I will O on my left. I will have my August baby, and I will be due August 14th. So there. I dare the fates to defy me in my resolve.
The Secret is a book (and DVD) that came out that basically says, you get what you put out there. If you think positively you can will great things to happen to/for you. You basically change your way of thinking and whatever you wish for will work out. Ben and I have the DVD... and it's really inspiring to watch. I mean, naturally, you'll be skeptical of it when people are saing things like "I willed my cancer away by simply thanking God for curing me before it happened" etc. but I'd found that when I really focused on little things... it was working out. (mostly, hoping for a particular parking space when I'd get home -- willing people to tip me $4.37 or whatever) So I mean, people can take it or leave it, but the way I see it-- it doesn't hurt to be extra optimistic. When I read your post I thought of it, b/c you were basically willing yourself to get pg.
Here's an article I just googled real quick about it The Secret
I apologize if this is a stupid question, evidently I missed this somewhere along the line... do you have Leo picked out as your boy name? The reason I ask is because that's our boy name, too! It's a family name, hubby is the third so our son would be the fourth!
Sure Bre! I will send some in the mail, it should get there tomorrow since you are only 2 hrs away.
Seriously though, I was thinking about it. Whats wrong with being positive? Whats wrong with believing it IS going to happen this cycle? The worse that can happen is I stay happy all month and do it again next month. In my mind, this time is all relative to the pregnancy. Most women have nine months, mine may be ten or eleven or twelve or more months, but it's gonna happen. This time is a time to be treasured as well, and maybe charting and watching the signs and scrutinizing every little thing has us losing the bigger picture. We have begun the journey to create a life, how amazing is that?! We should enjoy the journey as much as the destination, because we WILL reach our destination.
BTW Leos really are amazing. I have never not liked a Leo. I have never met a Leo that wasn't well liked and successful.
