Ode to my Ovaries (and Uterus)

This came to me while I was lying on the table, feet in the stirrups for my IUI.

For nearly 27 years (yikes, that's 324 months) you have been loyally working month after month.  I have taken you for granted, hated and cursed you time and time again.  

Over and over you prepare to do your job in anticipation that this will be the month I allow you to fulfill your destiny.  Instead, month after month, year after year I have intentionally created barriers, never allowing you to finish the work.  

Faithfully, you start over again.  

You have played the role of Understudy waiting for your big break.  You rehearse again and again, you know every step just waiting for the month you get called upon to play the lead role.

It's your turn, my faithful friend.  You are the STAR of the show!  The supporting cast has been sent in to allow you to SHINE and finish your job as you have been waiting so patiently to do.  Pick your favorite dance partner and get comfortable for a 40 week engagement - our chance of a LIFETIME!

Silly...  I know.  But I figured someone out there might get a kick out of it.  It just came to me at that time how much I have taken my cycle for granted up until this point in my life, and now I'm so aware of every day of my cycle.  

I had baseball references too (minor league, getting called up, at bat, home run, etc).  


  1. Such a creative post and so SO true!
    Lots of positive, sticky baby vibes coming your way!

  2. I love it & it's so true! I've thought how for years my focus had been on not getting pregnant & now my whole focus is to get knocked up!

  3. My husband would enjoy the baseball version of this.
