2010 was the Year of the Tiger.. my favourite animal. But unfortunately, it didn't bring the happy event for which we had hoped. But I've been looking forward opimistically to 2011 and the Year of the Rabbit, thinking that we had a really good chance of taking home our own baby this year.
But that now seems extremely unlikely if we won't be starting IVF until April or May, though there's still a good chance of that elusive BFP! So we're looking at 2012, the Year of the Dragon, to be the year that we finally start our family. So what does this mean? What can we expect for a 'dragon-baby'?!
'The Dragon is the symbol of power and wealth. It would be right to say that people born in the year of the dragon have a natural charisma and are certainly gifted with power and luck. It is unlikely for them to escape unnoticed from a party or to take a second place in a competition. The dragon person has an active mind and shows an unfeigned interest in the world around him/her. This person is also self-confident enough to know how to create a necessary impression. Because they are larger than life themselves, dragon people like to do everything on a grand scale.'
To me, this doesn't sound too bad (not that I really believe in all this completely).. with all that we have gone through and have yet to go through, I wouldn't mind our little one having a big dose of good luck!
