Mrs Negative

Mrs Negative embraces her tardy Positive. Life after IVF and loving the son I never thought I'd have.

I love Omens.
Admittedly, I only acknowledge the positive ones. Sometimes I will unsuspectingly stumble upon an Omen & put the good vibes into my pocket for later use. My pockets get full. You see, I can turn a simple daily event into a stroke of good fortune. For example: If I look at a digital clock & it reads 12.34. That, my friends is a good omen. True! It sounds easy, but it is a skill that I have acquired over many years of clock glancing. If the clock reads 1.11 or 2.22 etc this is also a tremendously good sign that something great is going to happen! Do you realise the agony of checking the time only to discover it's 12.35 & you just missed out on a prime opportunity by a mere 60 seconds? That really upsets me. I have many other recipes for finding good Omens, but I can't share all of them or else they will just become common place. Quick! Look at your clock!

NASA had scheduled the return of the Space Shuttle for August 9. The very same day that we were going to our IVF appointment! I decided that the Shuttle return was going to be my good omen. An indicator of how things would pan out for us. Like a giant, flying Magic 8 ball. If the Shuttle returned home sucessfully it would represent good luck for our IVF journey. If it disintegrated upon re-entry, I would be furious. A sure sign of bad kharma. Damn those astronauts & that piece of Space Junk. The world rejoiced at the safe return of the Shuttle & crew & I did an extra little jig for my own lucky omen.
Our appointment went very well. And no wonder. While we were waiting in the Clinic, Peter & I were reading over the "Community Noticeboard" checking out brouchures & information & "For Sale" goodies. Imagine my delight when Peter pointed out a trick looking pram for sale. The Bertilini SHUTTLE! (Don't hold me to that Brand name) but a SHUTTLE nonetheless! Right on NASA! You really are looking out for us! Another Omen right there in Black Texta! I didn't tell Peter about my abstract omen theory. He thinks I'm pretty intelligent & I'd like to keep it that way. We got to talking about how Male Doctors seem to dominate Gyno & Fertility practices & how it seemed odd that more Women didn't treat. I admitted that I'd never had a Lady Doctor look at my Lady parts. I'd like a Lady Doctor I began to think & then another good omen smacked me in the face. "Mr & Mrs Negative" a female voice called from the counter. It was our Doctor! A she! Oh NASA! Please stop spoiling me with all these wonderful omens! Keep some for another hopeful couple. Our Doctor is lovely. She insists on being called by her 1st name. Whatever makes you happy girlfriend. If she can get me pregnant I'll call her any damn name she likes. We go back in 4 weeks. We have a series of test to do before then & all going well we can begin a cycle in October.
I'll be staring at my digital clock with a new ferocity. And every kooky omen I believe in will be held tight over the coming months. Better get some bigger pockets.

What a great post! I smiled all the way through it. I have always felt that seeing the 11:11 time was a good luck omen for me. My mom always told me that when I looked at the clock at 11:11 it meant my angel was looking out for me. I hope your pockets overflow!

Bring on them good omens! You know, the shuttle landed in California, and *I* live in California.. that's a good omen, isn't it???

Yes, I love female RE's. My office is full of them and they are great. You know, come to think of it; I'm quite the reverse: I don't think I've ever had a man-doctor look at my lady parts...

So I'm glad things are gearing up for your IVF cycle. Keep positive!

I love omens. I like to think of them as God letting you know that you are exactly where you are meant to be, even though I often question this. I have omeny things all the time. I had one yesterday. I was flicking on the music channel and there was a cheesy song by S CLub 7 on. I started to wonder what happened to S-Club Jo - the one with the best voice. You just never hear about her, unlike other S-Clubbers like Rachel Stevens. Then about two hours later as I started to cook dinner, I turned on BBC Radio 2 and there it was! They were playing her new single - the one that is launching her solo career. It can't be random!

You are my omen :-) I thought you were going to have your ivf just before mine, and I if everything would go well with yours, mine would go great too! Turns out that I'll start a little bit earlier than you. What kind of an omen is that?

Blogger Ova Girl said...

Hey I'm an omen-reader too. At the moment my potted lemon tree is my omen, it's got flowers and baby lemons so that's gotta be a good thing. Yay for your lovely dorctor, it's such a relief to get someone you like and click with.

Blogger Mellie said...

I'm right there with you too on inferring signs from the strangest of places. And I've been an avid wishmaker on digital clock displays reading the same number (1:11, 2:22 etc.) since I was a kid. May the good times follow.

Blogger heleen said...

Ah, maybe I'm your omen...
Check my blog.. hormones starting in 3 or 4 weeks.

Blogger Sara said...

I am big into omens and good luck signs, etc. I enjoyed this! :-)

Blogger shell said...

loved the post :) looked at the clock and it was 2:34 so i'm sending my good omen vibes your way to wish you extra extra luck with the IVF

Blogger heleen said...

You might consider changing the number in the header of your blog, It says 897... That's no good :-)

Blogger k #2 said... do know that on the first day of every month you are supposed to say "rabbit, rabbit." And, since rabbits are so fertile, I am going to try to do this every 1st day of every month from now on.

I ignore the bad omens, too!

PS Thanks for your post. It helped get me through my day.
