Haiku Meme

Kirby tagged me - here's the deal. You write a haiku to describe your IF/latest cycle/you name it. It can be deep and emotional, or snarky and bitchy, or just downright funny.

A haiku is a 17 syllable poem in three lines: the first and third lines have five syllables each, the second line has seven.

I chose to do my history...

Getting pregnant should
be easy at just 20
unless you're married

A year and longer
Counting down, late periods
Still no positive

I hate IUI
Catheter shoved deep inside
All my cycles failed

Gave up IUI
IVF sounds promising
Let's give it a go!

Cycle one torture
idiots sent for beta
a false positive

Cycle two one of
four embryos stuck around
now cute teenager

Cycles three and four
No plus beta for either
But some frosties left

Cycle five with four
frozen embryo transfer
I'm a mom of twins

Cycle six beta
29 is not so good
Blame hematoma

Not chemical but
13 long weeks 'til the end
Blame hematoma

Kirby's are (mostly) hilarious, check them out!
