Stage Left: Enter Period (Crowd Roars)

Well, her friend Spot heralded her entrance last night and today it has just been a lot of dark-brown sludge but the red flow will swiftly follow.

Too much information, I know but combined with the cramping and the back pain, I am counting this as CD1. I have already e-mailed my nemesis (IVF co-ordinator) to let her know.

Of course, I have now realised what my uterus was waiting on and why the big delay in bringing forth the goods.

It is also CD1 for my donor today too.

We could not have synchronised that if we had tried. We have already had one other weird coincidence happen, in that we have the same rare identical blood type. If I believed in signs, I would think it was all serendipitous.

Just wow.

Hooray!

I don't usually believe in what's "meant to be," but that's a bit spooky!

I knew the thread of medical intervention would do the trick.

You're off to a serendipitous start. Yay!!!

Sounds like perfect timing, with the added bonus of being able to skip a session with the wand monkey. Perfect!

This is the IF variant of the birthday paradox. In a room of 25 people or more, it is highly likely that two people have a birthday in common.
It's totally counter-intuitive, but mathematicians have enjoyed themselves with calculating the odds: 50%.

Of course, the odds that someone shares a birtday with YOU is quite low.

Anyhow, I'm glad you're in sync just like that. :-)

Serendipitous indeed! I believe in signs my friend - let the games begin!

We, the crowd, are applauding like thunder and flicking our Bics.

Can't wait for good news for you. Can't. Wait.

"If I believed in signs, I would think it was all serendipitous"

Infertility has me obsessed with signs and I am here to add my agreement that these are REALLY GOOD SIGNS!
