I've always felt like I never win anything - raffles, free spa giveaways, radio contests... Both E and my father have, at some point, said right before a drawing "I'm going to win that shirt," or "I'm gonna win those free tickets."
And guess what - they won! (I've tried this method NUMEROUS times, saying I'm gonna win something - it only succeeds in making other ticket holders look at me funny, like I rigged the whole thing... until I don't win and then they just laugh.
Odds of winning the lottery are like, 1 in 175 million.
Odds of winning those obnoxiously rigged boardwalk games are like, 1 in 900.
You know the odds of a "spontaneous miscarriage" in early pregnancy (before 12 weeks)?
Between 95-97%. F*ck me.
How the hell did I win life's f*cked up lottery with those odds?
Did you know the odds are almost the SAME for a second trimester loss as a first trimester loss after hearing fetal heartbeat?? A second trimester loss is only a slightly less chance at just under 4%..
And did you know that traditionally (and medically) all pregnancy losses before 24 weeks are labeled "abortions?" Doctors would label my chart a "missed abortion."
