Ode to a Cyropreserved Embryo

"....Sorry 'bout the deep freeze deal,
My eight-celled next of kin.
Mama's uterus is safe and warm,
..for fuck sake settle in...."

Hi Mony. I'm an avid lurker on infertility blogs including yours (I'm slow at writing, and if I commented or kept a blog of my own I'd never do anything else). I'm well and truly infertile myself, and so grateful to all of you who write about it - the misery and the hope. Thank you.

I just had to respond to this post because it had me spluttering my lunch all over my desk at work! You are hilarious!!

Wishing you all the best for this cycle - I so hope this is the one.

Hopefully this will be the first of many times that they do what you tell them to.

Yes! What she said! Listen to Mama, little embryo.

Good luck, Mony.
Thinking of you and your family.

Genius. Way better than Hugo, Horace, Spenser, or Keats could've done on the subject matter.

Hope the little guy listens and makes him/her self a nice little nest to cuddle up in for a while. Good luck Mony!

I hope the BEX, the pussy pops and a weekend of lying around do the trick.

I'm sure the home you have created is lovely and inviting. Just bolt the door so they can't escape.
