Even the fictional movie characters are knocked up

Nothing like a flick about teen pregnancy to really celebrate your infertility. Ju.no wouldn’t have been my first choice in film to see this weekend, although I usually love the cynical yet sweet comedy genre. We got sucked in to it with friends, and I was along for the ride.

All in all, it wasn’t too bad of an experience. The film was enjoyable, even from the point of view of an infertile having a visit from AF.  The characters were fun and the story moved along at a good pace. If you are the type to normally enjoy a film like this, but have been avoiding it like the plague because of the subject matter, you might want to reconsider.

 My only real beef with the film was the couple looking to adopt Ju.no’s baby. The woman is portrayed as being desperate for a child, while the man was kind of lukewarm about the whole thing.  There was a really wonderful moment though where Ju.no says to the woman, “at least you’re not pregnant,”  and the reaction from her is so realistic you would think that Jen.nifer Gar.ner isn’t currently parenting an adorable little rugrat in real life. Definitely straight from the list of insensitive things fertile people say.

After 5 IUIs, 2 IVFs, and the diagnosis of diminished ovarian reserve at the ripe old age of 29, I am now looking for information on embryo donation and adoption. I'm taking a break from blogging but will return when our path out of the world of IF becomes more clear.
