Infertility Sing-A-Long

OK, so there is one song that whenever I hear it I think about my miscarriage and start crying. The chorus goes like this:

"Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do"

Not totally appropriate, I know, but it got me thinking...

Why aren't there more songs about infertility? Weird idea...but stay with me. There could be pop song related to that hopeful two week wait time. Something with a nice beat that you could dance to (without shaking up your uterus of course). And the inevitable sappy country songs to cry along with when it all goes wrong.

Some suggestions:

She Thinks My Semen Analysis Results Are Sexy
Embryos in the Stream
Take this Pee Stick and Shove It
Stand By Your Embryologist
Did I Shave My Legs for This Appointment?
Acky Breaky Eggs
If You've Got the Money, I Need an IVF Cycle
On the Pill Again

Just a thought...too bad I can't sing.

Hi Megan,
I love your posts. You have such a great sense of humor.
I came across some research that shows that women that maintain a sense of humor have better outcomes from IVF! (If it is true, i'm screwed!)

April said...

this is such a good idea. i would listen and sing along :)

Sarah said...

Take this Pee Stick and Shove It.


I cant sing either...I sound a bit like scuttle from the little mermaid. But maybe thats what these songs need. A bunch of infertile woman that cant sing belting out tunes. Me likes. Lemme know when we should get together for the demo. said...

Hilarious! I love seeing what new idea you've come up with!!

Sarah said...

What a great idea! :-) haha

It's true though, there are all these songs out there to help people deal with things in life, but no infertility songs!!

I'm gonna contact the Dixie Chicks about this :-) haha

You are hilarious!:)

Emily said...

Too funny! I totally relate song lyrics to my life, perhaps I should write one - I think I'll go with, Did I shave my legs for this appt. :)

Actually, there is a song about infertility. It's a reggae song by a Jamaican woman, Lady Saw. You can see it here:

LOL!! You are so funny!

Liz said...

Of course there's "All I want to do is make love to you" really - check the lyrics,

And of course "All that she wants is another baby"

But otherwise I'm thinking:
Give me baby one more time
Come on over to my placenta

And who could top a reworking of the Venga Boys 'Boom, Boom, Boom, I want you in my womb'.

Kristin said...

this totally cracked me up. you're so funny! thanks for making me laugh.

kirke said...

Too funny! It's too bad no one has realized what a market there is for these types of songs. I'm sure you would hit the top of the charts.
