Two toilet rolls

It's getting closer to OVULATION TIME now and I am wondering how we'll manage the deed with drippy noses and very little enthusiasm for anything other than non-blocked doses. "Hey Poppid, by righd dostril is clear! Woo hoo achoo!"

Ok, here's the thing.

IF I ovulate on schedule and IF we managed to get pregnant this month and IF I managed to keep the baby safe inside my belly until it was ready to be born ALIVE 
THEN our due date would be VERY close to George's day.

HMMM, and how would we feel about that then? Well, due dates are only estimations and I won't can't take the chance of missing a chance to conceive and some perverse part of me would really like to give birth to a living breathing screaming baby on that day because then it wouldn't be just a day of death and at least we wouldn't be following the same timeline. The point is, I think, that I wouldn't be 20 weeks and 5 days on that day.

Anyhow... I'll process all that if I have to and dear Universe I would very much like to have to process thoughts like that if you don't mind very much thank you.

IN THE MEANTIME If you have a moment over the next few days please  ZAP us with some super energised, clear nosed conception vibes!

Because I have to hang on to HOPE don't I?

Oh yes, two toilet rolls? One each. A whole toilet roll each for drips and blows and snuffles over the course of two colds x 2 people.

I couldn't let a month go by without trying.

Toes crossed too!

  19. Hello--
    I can tell you that the prospect of a rainbow at the birthday/angelversary of your child is hard, but it does bring hope for the day. I will be delivering my rainbow on 2/22. My daughter Sylvia's day is 2/26. It will one year since we held her on that day. I think of having another baby around that time as Sylvia's way of sending me a special present for her day. She doesn't want me to be alone...That is how I'm getting through this. It is hard thinking that last year this time, I was at the same exact stages with her as I am now. Good luck! George is watching over you choosing the perfect child for you!
