Even Fertility Authority Changed the title to "Murphy's TTC Law".
Tut, tut. Oh, ye of little faith.
There is a simple and obvious distinction, and the best way to illustrate it is to use myself as an example.
For the past month I have, to the best of my ability, acted like a carefree young woman just starting out on her procreation journey. To the extent that, on Monday night during my two week wait, I went to a sherry tasting.
More of a sherry drinking actually, as the husband jealously noted that on this occasion, I swallowed rather than spat.
So four days before my period is due I go on this booze-fest. I consider doing a quick early pregnancy test before hand, just to check. Then, mainly 'cause I have none in the house, dismiss the idea. Because I know I won't be pregnant.
And that wasn't the only occasion I over indulged during my two week wait.
This is also the month that I managed to bring forward my Doctors appointment to talk about IVF. Full steam ahead on the infertile train - or something.
Do you see where I am going with this?
Those of you shouting "OMG. You're pregnant!". You clearly didn't read the first paragraph properly, this is WFI's Law NOT Murphy's Law.
Sure, if Murphy's Law applied I'd be clutching a double lined pregnancy test.
But this is Womb For Improvement's Law so, as ever, my period has started.
(Come on, you didn't really think I'd manage to get knocked up all by myself did you?)
