It’s 11/11

November 11th.  11/11.

Make a wish.

Here’s how this works: (1) Make a wish in the comment section (and don’t believe that stuff about how if say it aloud it won’t come true.  That is precisely when the parts that are within another human being’s control can come true).  (2) Then leave a comment on the blog of the commenter directly before you (so it’s a chain.  #2 comments on #1, #3 comments on #2, etc. If the commenter above you didn’t leave an address, just go one above that.  The point is to find new blogs/leave a comment–not stress).

The first person who comments on this post gets a free ride and does not need to leave any comments.  The last person who comments on this post gets…screwed.

It would be nice within your comment to refer to their wish (if it ties in to the post you read and comment on) and if you can grant any part of it, to do so.  If you can’t, because their wish is outside of human control, don’t feel badly.  But if you have the power to grant a wish, why not do it?

I wish that someone would help me pass my two week wait with an entertaining joke or two. 🙂

2 Elana Kahn { 11.11.09 at 12:50 am }

I wish I would win a million dollars (or more) to pay off my mortgage!

3 mybumpyjourney { 11.11.09 at 12:55 am }

I wish my husband would get over his fear and have his TESE!!!!

4 Sally { 11.11.09 at 1:05 am }

I wish my baby would be born alive some time in the next week.

5 Valery { 11.11.09 at 1:12 am }

I wish Sally’s baby boy arrives very soon & perfectly healthy.

6 Jen { 11.11.09 at 1:14 am }

I wish I had my donor’s test results so I could know what the next step is!

7 Meim { 11.11.09 at 1:35 am }

I wish that I could truly express my thanks to all my IF sisters who make this journey bearable. I am in continual awe of their kindness.

And since I’m greedy and want to make TWO wishes…

I wish that Purell made a lip balm and possibly a nicely scented body spray that could be reapplied as needed. Think Lysol, Bath and Body Works style. Just THINK of the applications! *sigh*

8 karlinda { 11.11.09 at 1:40 am }

I wish we could have our baby home before the end of the year.

9 WiseGuy { 11.11.09 at 1:49 am }

I wish I would wake up one morning with the hips of Marilyn Monroe.

10 Circus Princess { 11.11.09 at 2:48 am }

I wish this pregnancy ends up healthy in spite of all my bleeding.

11 Tigger { 11.11.09 at 3:00 am }

I wish that I could find a new job.

12 Jules { 11.11.09 at 4:44 am }

I wish that the dreams would come true of all my IF sisters still waiting patiently.

13 geohde { 11.11.09 at 4:58 am }

I wish I could afford not to return to full time work, have another baby without IVF, risk of repeated malformation, and follwed by a normal pregnancy.

When I wish, I wish BIG.


14 Vee { 11.11.09 at 5:22 am }

I wish my husband would be cured of his incurable cancer so our new little family could live happily ever after.

15 Angie { 11.11.09 at 6:09 am }

I have a wish that all my babies would outlive me and bury me and my great grandchildren would attend my funeral, but I want Vee’s wish to come true too.

16 AnxiousMummy { 11.11.09 at 6:20 am }

I wish that this horrible inner ear dizziness problem I have developed will go away in the timeframe stated by the doctor. And that if I stay feeling dizzy it’s because I’m knocked up.

17 Erin { 11.11.09 at 6:28 am }

Iwish this cycle will go well…

18 Jennifer { 11.11.09 at 6:35 am }

I wish I had the money to continue fertility treatments.

19 Cheryllookingforward { 11.11.09 at 7:45 am }

I wish that this baby will make it past my milestone appointment tomorrow and will continue to thrive, having a long, happy, healthy life.

20 Rose's Daughter { 11.11.09 at 7:46 am }

I wish I could have this baby this week so I can start looking for a job.

21 VA Blondie { 11.11.09 at 7:47 am }

I wish my heart would slow down so that I could enjoy third trimester more, and hopefully end up with a vaginal birth, not a c-section.

22 ks { 11.11.09 at 7:51 am }

I wish with all that I am, that on Monday I would have a very + beta!!!

23 Melissa { 11.11.09 at 8:12 am }

i wish that AF would show up and let me have an ovulatory cycle.

24 Dee { 11.11.09 at 8:32 am }

I wish I could fall pregnant naturally one night in bed with my husband.

25 Delenn { 11.11.09 at 8:58 am }

I wish that time would stand still and I could catch a breath.

26 Alison { 11.11.09 at 9:02 am }

I wish I could make my husband a daddy… but fear if may never happen.

27 Pie { 11.11.09 at 9:20 am }

I wish for mandatory insurance IF coverage in all 50 states. It just doesn’t seem fair that some of us get this, while others don’t.

28 Lynn { 11.11.09 at 9:33 am }

I wish our adoption goes through without any problems.

And I think Pie’s wish is a wonderful one! It would be so helpful.

29 a { 11.11.09 at 9:40 am }

I wish my husband’s job situation would settle itself (although I am very thankful that we have jobs in today’s economy, his status is questionable and it annoys me). Building on that, I wish that everyone seeking a job will find a good one quickly. And, of course, I wish we could have another baby.

Uh, Mel? Where’s your wish?

30 Calliope { 11.11.09 at 9:40 am }

I wish for a smooth and easy move, a quick landing of wonderful and fairly paying jobs, relief from financial stress, continued good health of my son, better health of my Mother, smaller thighs, better skin and hair, smaller feet, time to mourn, time to cry, time to fix myself, and a big burly liberal single man looking for an amazon woman with a baby. too much??

31 Kymberli { 11.11.09 at 10:04 am }

I wish for money. Lots of it. Like a big lottery windfall ton of money. It might sound superficial and greedy, but in actuality, the people who are closest to me whose problems I wish I could fix mostly have problems that could be fixed with money. If I had tons of money, I could do a lot of good with it. Not only for my life, but for the lives of those around me.

32 Journeywoman { 11.11.09 at 10:07 am }

I wish I could get pregnant and carry a child to term. Or barring that, that China adoption speeds up a little.

33 Jenn { 11.11.09 at 10:14 am }

I wish that G-d would allow an infant to come into our lives for adoption without all high costs attached.

34 Caitlin { 11.11.09 at 10:26 am }

I wish for a spontaneous pregnancy once my six months of Lupron is up.

35 Kim { 11.11.09 at 10:32 am }

I wish for this cycle to be it, end of the journey, beginning of a new one.

36 Carrie { 11.11.09 at 10:36 am }

I wish that everyone’s wishes would come true.

37 jill { 11.11.09 at 10:56 am }

Great idea Mel 🙂
My wish is obvious – I wish with all my being that I will get pregnant and have a healthy baby in 2010. Please, please, please.

38 deathstar { 11.11.09 at 11:23 am }

I wish that I will be bringing home a healthy baby boy next month and before Christmas please and thank you.

39 Yoka { 11.11.09 at 11:23 am }

My wish is also to get pregnant and be able to give Lilli a sibling in 2010. Hope this works and all our wishes come true.

40 Kim { 11.11.09 at 11:34 am }

I wish that I would hear something regarding my latest interview, positive or negative, soon!

41 Leah { 11.11.09 at 11:41 am }

My wish is for Sunny to find peace with her beautiful babies — whether it includes her husband or not. (I’m greedy so I also wish for Bean to have an easy transition back to work, and for Barren to start blogging again because she gets knocked up and then has a sweet little baby.) Hey, I told you I was greedy!

42 Christa { 11.11.09 at 12:09 pm }

I wish with all my heart that my husband will come home from his deployment in time to try one last IUI! Dear God, please don’t let me ovulate before then

43 Kim { 11.11.09 at 12:12 pm }

I truly hope that our poor fortune turns around and we get a little good news our way. I am losing my job this week and my insurance at the end of the month and some positive events would really make this more bearable!

44 Carol { 11.11.09 at 12:17 pm }

I’m wishing for a very strong beta tomorrow.

45 Elizabeth { 11.11.09 at 12:19 pm }

I wish I didn’t hate my life. I don’t know why I feel this way; I have everything I ever wanted, including my baby. It’s just that most mornings I wake up thinking “I hate my life.” I don’t know why.

46 Lavender Luz { 11.11.09 at 12:23 pm }

I wish that I would finish my project in 3 weeks, and that it will be enthusiastically received by the people whose approval it needs.

47 Melissa G. { 11.11.09 at 12:30 pm }

Great Post Mel. I love making wishes.

My initial thought was to wish for other people, but today is not a great one, and I’m feeling a little selfish. So please forgive me.

I wish that the fifth time is the charm and that I can welcome the Thanksgiving holiday with a postive pregnancy test, and ultimately deliver a healthy baby (or babies) in the summer of 2010. Please, please, please, please, please, and thank you.

48 Melissa { 11.11.09 at 12:33 pm }

Great idea! I made a wish for myself at 11:11 on 11/11. So i will make a wish for others now.

I wish that infertility did not exist and anyone who truly wants a child could have…easily.

49 Rachel { 11.11.09 at 12:59 pm }

I hope and pray for a successful FET cycle.

50 Emmy { 11.11.09 at 1:16 pm }

I wish that B’s doctor finds sperm, and that we don’t need donor.
