An Ode to Holiday Miracles

'Twas the night before Christmas
Hannukah's Fifth Night the date
Stars & menorahs glowed brightly
For this time ... I DID ovulate

The eggs were quickly retrieved
Hubby delivered the sperm
With a little help from ICSI
it was the embryologist's turn

Six embryos started growing
We waited 'til Day 5
The RE made the transfer
Of the prettiest one to survive

Through a chilly season we waited
Two weeks seemed like four
Every little symptom made us crazy
We wanted to know more

The day really did come
To find out the answer
BFN? No, it's real ...
That embryo made it after transfer!

The first three months are a blur
It's just hard to believe
When you've struggled so long
That this time you conceived

Nine months did pass
A baby born with a reproductive assist
And now we know for sure
Christmas and Hanukkah miracles DO exist!
