tomorrow is a big day -- significant and meaningful. it's my mother's birthday. it's the official beginning of our IVF cycle.
I keep repeating what angela has told me numerous times "there is no such thing as coincidence." this entire experience so far has brought my mother's absence yet again to the forefront of my life. the fact that I will be starting our cycle on 3 march is profound and makes me very emotional. it's a day that a lot of people will be thinking of her and feeling the pain of our tragic loss. I remember her last birthday before she passed away. when I enthusiastically swallow that very first pill in the morning I will think of her and know she is rooting for me. "happy birthday mom."
