The 31st Law of Infertility

the 31st law of infertility states that regardless of which online search engine is used, search parameters input, or reason for the online search, any and all online image searches performed by an infertile will include at least one picture of a pregnant woman.

thanks for reminding me that i'm not pregnant, google!


this pic is thanks to glamour magazine and if you want to read the article that goes with it, click here. it's called how to get pregnant exactly when you want to and i couldn't help but laugh when i read it. nowhere in there does it tell you anything about how to get pregnant (as if we need to read about the birds and the bees on that one), let alone how to do it on a timeline.  

oh, and thanks, glamour, for pointing out to me that 70% of couples get pregnant within the first 6 months and that we're not one of them!

OOOHHH!! Why did no one tell me that all I had to do was 'eat well'??

I'm on it.

DAMN YOU GLAMOUR!!! Where were you 4 years ago when I started trying? I'm sure it would have been so much easier had I read this article before going of BCP!

So true... what is it with pregnant photos everywhere in IF information ?!?... and as for getting pregnant exactly when you want - what a laughable myth :( Love to you always xoxo

This is very true! For some reason when you search for CM Google must think you want to look at preggo bellies too.
