My Lucky Numbers Came Up

I should be having a go at Lotto this week.

Yesterday I said I would write about why this is all going to work out fine. Its all about the numbers.

I'm not a numerology nutter, or into astrology or any of that guff. I dont believe in Feng Shui and I dont think that blocking the positive Chi from the North does anything to change your fortune.

However, since I met The Monkey, there has been a rather amazing string of coincidences surrounding the numbers 4 and 8.

My birthday is 4th of the 8th month, his is the 22nd of the 8th month (2+2 equalling 4 last time I checked). We met on the 8th of the 8th. He proposed on the 13th of the 8th (yes, thats right, after knowing me a week). He lived in Flat 8, No 22... I lived at Number 8. The number of times (ha - its probably 8) either 4 or 8 have been involved in something of significance to both of us has been astounding. Every single time a 4 or 8 (or numbers that add up to these) is involved, stuff works out.

So this whole guine pig thing: I conceived on the 13th day of my cycle, which happened to be our 17th cycle of TTC. The baby is due in the 4th month of 2006. If you work out 40weeks from the date of conception, its actually due on the 8th of April.

Yesterday, the day we were shown our baby for the first time, was the 2nd of the 8th, 2005 - which all add up to....8. The heartbeat was 143, which adds up to 8.

Look back at the post of our ultrasound. See the time I published it? By pure coincidence, I posted our first baby picture at 8:48.

It has to work out. The numbers say so.

I think we'll call it Octavius.


  1. I agree the numbers look good.
    Wow one week. My husband proposed after 20 days, but we managed to keep it quiet for 5 weeks. Then irony of ironies a couple of nasty bitches spread rumours around work that I must have been pregnant.

  2. Wow that is really amazing. I think that is a sign of good things to come for sure!!

  3. Octavius Panda! :) Lovely.

  4. That heartbeat is loverly!

  5. PCOS: check
    Infertility: check
    IVF: check, check
    Pregnant: check
    baby: check, check, check

    I'm so happy to hear that you heard that sweet little heartbeat!! I'll be pulling for you... I know how hard it is... just keep on breathing, in and out, in and out, in and out. The only way I managed was to live day by day... I refused to even look ahead more than 20 minutes.

    Octavius if it's a boy, Octavia if it's a girl! I knew an Octavia... she changed her name to Corey. Don't ask!

  6. I have the same thing with the number 2. As long as you don't have octuplets, I think this is a fine trend.

  7. And Octopussy if it's a GIRL!

  8. Wow that is really amazing. I think that is a sign of good things to come for sure!!


Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
