This past Sunday, I decided to search FB for my Chinese Horoscope. Shortly after Wyatt grew his wings, I stumbled across a Chinese Fortune that allowed my mind to ease a bit. So, I decided why not look for a Chinese Horoscope to help with the holidays. In finding the horoscope program, I realized it allowed for daily view's. I viewed Monday, November 22 and it was nothing impressive. Then I clicked on Tuesday's, and shock and puzzlement set in. I decided to share it to FB with a comment, see below:
Megan McGrory hmmmmmmmm this is Tuesday's fortune... "The plight of a child may move you..."
Tuesday, November 23
You have a lot of compassion for others today - the plight of a child may move you to actions you would not normally consider. You may be seeking a lasting outlet for feelings that did not seem important to you before, because you want to share something you have learned.
Yes, that was the horoscope. "The plight of a child may move you...", I was shocked and puzzled. I was curious as to what this may mean. A few weeks ago, Brian and I decided it was time to head back to the IVF doctor to see what we could plan for going into the new year. Would this horoscope have something to do with that? Would it have to do with another BLM? What could it mean. I decided time would tell.
So, yes, Brian and I went back to the doctors since my insurance was now covering all IVF as of January 1, 2011, yes 1/1/11. Amazing huh? A sign from Wyatt. We talked to the doctor about the months to come and what they held in store for us. We also decided that since we were in the middle of a cycle, we would be monitored only, as we missed the chance for "assistance" (drugs and such) for the cycle. After blood work and an ultrasound, we were told of the dates of our "homework" and the doctor said, "Call me in two weeks regardless."
The two weeks went by much faster then they had during the 26 months of trying with Wyatt, probably because we assumed without assistance it wouldn't work. However, I was starting to get the feeling that maybe that was not the case because Monday, November 22, was the two week mark, but nothing happened. I am not one who likes to test because of the previous let downs. So, we waited. Tuesday, November 23, was one day after the two week mark, still nothing. I decided it was time to get a test, as I am NEVER late. In my world, the let down always arrives on time, it never tries to trick me.
After getting the tests and coming home, I decided I couldn't wait until morning. I thought, "If you aren't, it is going to show, so just deal with the let down now." The whole time, I held Wyatt's angel pin and prayed he would be with us to help us through whatever happened. I kissed the pin and told him I love him. Then I looked down. I opened my eyes slowly, squeezed the pin hard and realized I couldn't move. After a minute or so, I got up with the test and took it out to Brian. He looked at me and then he said, "Shut up?" I just stood there while holding the test out. He then said, "I just can't believe it." We both teared up, I told him that Wyatt was with us and that Wyatt made this happen. Wyatt decided it was time for him to have a brother or a sister. And it happened on its own.
A miracle? Well, it is something, that's for sure. It took 26 months and a round of IVF for Wyatt. We only received one egg in the IVF process and we used all of the insurance money. We found out about a month ago that IVF was possible again due to the lifetime maximums being lifted. Now, we find that we created a child on our own.
We found out on Tuesday, November 23, as Clearblue told us twice that it was real. Tuesday, was the same day that my horoscope stated "The plight of a child may move you...". So, now I only ask, the plight of our second child, or the plight of our angel child? Or both of them working together?
