Christmas is tough for infertiles (see previous post on FaceBook annoyances related to kids and Christmas). This time of year more than any other, I am reminded on a constant basis of the fact that I am not a parent. So, I decided to do something that makes me feel better.
Jack Bauer has a habit of singing funny, made up words to songs (usually about one of our pets), and it always makes me laugh.
From now until Christmas, I will be rewriting the classic carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas. Feel free to sing along with me.
On the first day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me: wishes for a pregnancy
On the second day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me: two embryos and wishes for a pregnancy
On the third day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me: three Follistem pens, two embryos and wishes for a pregnancy...
Stay tuned for more lyrics...maybe the next one I attempt will be "All I want for Christmas is my fertility."
