I live by the ‘everything happens for a reason’ philosophy but I cant get my head around this one

Dancing and Celebrating in IVF after 40

dancing celebrations


Im going through my second IVF treatment and have come across something really funny. I really dont understand it and hope someone will shed some light on whats the best course of action.

What is the meaning behind this co incidence.. Its got me stumped.. Im a strong believer in ‘everything happens for a reason’, but I just dont get this one.  

Each time I get to the stage in the IVF process  when the egss have been transferred inside my womb and I have 12 days to find out if Im pregnant or not I find myself attending an event ( pre plannned) that involves dancing and celebrating.

Its really crazy, the first time it was a friends 40th birthday, a big dance party and the second, just now, I had pre arranged tickets to a West African Dance and Music Concert.  

Now Im not going to the events and totally cutting loose, Im taking it easy, Im not drinking, but I am going to the events and celebrating.

Here’s my dilema..  A friend told me, after the first IVF treatment was not successful,  that maybe its good to be at home, quiet and peaceful and resting once the eggs are transferred. OK good idea I thought, but when the day came that the eggs were transferred ( and you never know the date this will happen right as it depends on how your body responds to the treatment) I realised I had tickets to this West African Cultural concert for the following day. 

What baffles me is WHY!  If everything happens for a reason, why is this coincidence happening, why do I find myself in a celebration environment at the exact time of egg transferral?  What is the meaning behind it?   

Is this about being prepared to give up things for the moment or is it a little helper from life to remind me that being relaxed and without stress is very important for IVF success?  Its got me, I cant seem to find which is the right message.. or maybe its something completely different and Ive totally missed the point.

Can anyone shed some light on this?   Share a thought or perspective?

Whats the message..Is it about giving up on things for the moment or about celebrating life in a time when its so important to be as relaxed as possible for the treatment to be successful ?

When life’s giving you the finger..

A song from the ‘good old days’  can completely change your mood

Try it..  it  worked an absolute treat for me recently.  Go to you tube , search for clips of your favourie singers from the wild days of your youth, turn the volume up real loud and sing your little heart out!!!! (trust me you will still know all the words)   

The clip above is one of my favs from my wild wild childhood days of living in the Central Australian desert, the heart of Australia’s cowboy country.  Cows, horses, hats, large buckles, RM Williams boots, bottles of bundaberg rum,  bachelor and spinster balls and the great country music legends  as our hero’s.

They were fabulous days, days I haven’t thought about for many years.  After finishing school I left the desert, first travelling around the coast of Australia and then out to expore the globe. I forgot completely about my love of country music.  As the years passed by, my taste in music changed. First rock music swept me off my feet, then a few years later, without mercy electronic music stole my heart. 

Watching this clip took me on such beautiful journey to the good old days of my youth and the fun we had singing and dancing to the country legends.  It changed my mood completely.. I felt light and happy and over flowing with good energies.

Change your mood, take a trip down memory lane…

IVF after 40 Step By Step Information

The step by step process of IVF

The miracle of ivf

The miracle of ivf

The tests, the ivf drugs, the reactions to the ivf drugs, the Doctors suggestions, the alternate therapies, the positive affirmations and meditations used, what happens on what days of the cycle, its all here. 

And its positive!  For those of you who have been feeling absolutely petrified to read information on the net for fear of it ‘bringing you down’  I hope my posts will give you the positive feeling you deserve and that is so essential for the IVF process to bring results. 

While I am not going to go in to too much detail here (I have written about it in depth in my posts) I want to assure you that the IVF process is NOT anywhere near as bad as you think it is.  Its true that each person experiences things differently, but from my personal IVF adventure, I found the process to be very straight forward  and not at all painful. It is really OK.  Really.  Relax! 

Yes it is challenging emotionally and it has absolutely no guarantees, but hey tell me one thing in life that has been this important to you that hasnt been emotionally challenging..  And on the guarantee side.. apart from toasters, refridgerators and cars what else in life has a guarantee?  

This is a journey we are taking because we want to be mothers.. and we are blessed to be living in a modern age where science has developed this amazing technique to allow us this extra try.. so its worth every bit of anxiousness, fear and any other emotion that may run through our veins in this process.

Our job in this process is to be as healthy as happy as relaxed and as positive as we possible can be throughout the treatment . To participate in the process with our full hearts and to keep our minds positive.  The rest is up to life. 

For the complete list of my IVF articles: click here

Its essential to be as healthy, as relaxed and as positive as you possibly can..
