Here's my add for this week's Show And Tell.
Got yourself one of these puppies yet? Yes, this is my one and only, boughten on Ebay, Fertility Goddess. Prior to doing IVF for Ella in 2004, I was THAT desperate. Desperate enough to believe in voodoo. Desperate enough to believe that some wooden statue that was probably made by some man who lives in the mountains of Montana, was going to bring me the hocus pocus magic that I needed to have a successful cycle.
I should have tried to figure out how to feng shui it and all in my house as to bring it's maximum potential to my needs at the time, but I didnt. I set it up in my living room so I would see it everyday. I think its actually kinda cute. I rubbed its belly a few times, if you must know....but other than that, it just sat there staring at me.
Now I dont know if it's hocus pocus voodoo magic was actually the reason that I got pregnant on my very first cycle of IVF and actually gave birth to Ella. It could have been the mother and child pendant I was wearing that day, or my lucky underwear.....but the fact is I am glad I have it.
I have since repositioned it in my living room, and since had 2 failed FET cycles. I cant help but wonder if I feng shui'd it correctly in the first place. But in any case, it just goes to show the things we will believe in in order to get a BFP!
Got any funky stuff you've tried?
