Seven days past ovulation today.
Which means that I am exactly seven days away from starting our IVF cycle.
Why do I feel so calm then?
And eerily calm.
Like I am in a dream of some sort looking at everything through rose colored glasses.
I presume this outlook is normal since it’s my first cycle and my naive stance of being a “first time IVF’er” is working to my benefit.
Additionally, I am that eternal optimist that a lot of people may find annoying. I’ll use it to my advantage.
1. A person who never ceases to give up hope in something they believe.
2. A person who will continue to believe in something or a positive outcome till the end of time.
I’ve rehearsed the “play through” of how this IVF cycle will turn out, for what seems like a gazillion times, and I admit mine has a happy ending; our healthy rainbow take home baby.
