IVF to IUI

Today I went running and found myself reciting Railroad Toad by Susan Schade in my head. Railroad Toad my son's latest book obsession and we probably read it 3 or 4 times a day. Inspired by the book (I guess), I found myself dictating a poem along my route and then, because I am the coolest person I know - I recorded my brainstorm into my cell phone so I would remember by thoughts.

(To Ms. Schade, I apologize if this rhyme scheme or topic is an insult to your book)


I set my alarm for 6:15
Tomorrow, I'm off to see if my uterus is clean!

They'll check to see if there's a thick lining
Or, if all is clear and my uterus is shining

Depending in the results, we will see
If its IUI or a period for me. 

IUI uses meds to trigger my flow, 
so into my uterus my eggs will go!

For Round One, I will be inseminated, 
the shell of my egg - penetrated. 

If all goes well, I will be knocked up
and to our family we will add a new pup.

Lets cross our fingers for this new game play 
and we end the year with a new baby :)
