    Default Meant to be

    Does anyone believe in 'meant to be' when it comes to baby making?

    Honestly? No. I believe sometimes it's just the way the cookie crumbles; sometimes it's good, sometimes it is inexplicably crap.

    Nope. Life is just life - there is no rhyme or reason, no karma, no people get what they can handle.
    Life is random. it's life.

    No I don't. 3 kids through IVF and one natural. I can't give birth naturally at all so 4 Caesarians.

    I don't believe in 'meant to be'. I wouldn't have my 4 beautiful children if I did.

    Not for one second. Life sucks sometimes and sometimes there is just no reason why.

    Definitely not. I just think about all those children who are here today with medical assistance, both from conception to medical health issues.

    As a over all thing No. I totally believe in the right of every person to use every method available to have a bub.

    Personally my 2 surprises bubs were for us meant to be.. Our family wouldn't have been complete with out them.

    going against the grain here and going to say yes I do believe in meant to be.

    hard to explain myself articulately as I'm not even sure how to put it into words but I do believe if the universe intends something for you, then despite the means, it will happen.

    a baby for me for instance, I believe was meant to be. ok we conceived naturally but the labour went balls to the wall and I ended up with an emergency cs. if not for modern medicine, maybe bub and I would not be here today. but we live in modern times therefore I believe the means of delivery is irrelevant. a baby was meant to be for me and here we are.

    I hope that makes sense, although I'm sure it doesn't lol.

    I do believe you still need to work hard and make things happen for yourself, but I believe our overall life path is predetermined by the universe and we can therefore exert control over minor variations but not the overall result.

    I realise I probably sound frightfully flaky right now 😂

    but is just the way the cookie crumbles really not another way to say meant to be/not meant to be?
