Twas the night before the IUI, when all through my house
Every creature was anxious, even the mouse.
The shots have been given, in the tummy, with care.
In the hopes that an embryo would implant in there.
The dogs were nestled, all snug in their beds,
While visions of frisbee danced in their heads.
And Courtney in his boxers and I in my gown
He's fast asleep but I can't settle down.
The Office is on, causing such a clatter,
Courtney sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
"Please come to bed and get some needed rest,"
"Soon, " I said even though I knew it was best.
I could go to bed and lie there hour after hour,
And not fall asleep, it's just not in my power.
I'm too excited and nervous and worried and eager,
The sleep I'll get tonight will be little and meager.
Tomorrow begins the next leg of our journey,
Thanks to the powers that be it won't require an attorney.
The shots have been taken and the pills have been popped,
Rain, sleet, snow or hail: I cannot be stopped!
We've been patiently waiting so long for our turn,
In only a few weeks we will finally learn.
On a stick or in a cup I will have to pee,
I just hope Aunt Flo doesn't ruin it for me.
To bed I should go, as it's getting late,
In the morning I have a very important date.
So I'll say one more thing before I log out tonight,
"BABY DUST TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!"
