I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant (TLC, not me)

Nope, not a pleasant surprise. This is about the show on TLC.

We enjoy certain TLC shows in this house. I’ll admit sometimes I won’t even look if I’m flipping channels during the day, because it seems like it’s A Baby Story every time. Tonight I switched from the Wii to TV, and it was I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant.

Now, I used to watch this, albeit years ago. It just hasn’t seemed to come on at a time I would have to make a decision about watching it or not. Time has passed, and if I had thought about it, I probably would not watch it, just on general principles of not subjecting myself to something possibly upsetting. But, there it was.

See, today is a better day. I didn’t automatically jump into ‘bitter infertile’ mode. Instead I thought about how unlikely that would be in the infertility community. If we can take nothing else from our journey, we know our bodies.

I used to have to guess when asked for my LMP. I knew next to nothing about what actually happened during a normal cycle. Basically, all I knew was that my cycles were longer than average. Now I can give you TMI for days. It just goes to show you how much difference there can be in two different people’s lives.

    Aaron used to amuse the women he worked with by knowing more about their cycles and how they worked than they did. Yet another benefit of being infertile – if the men care enough to learn, it’s a neat party trick!

    Glad today is a better day. I can’t believe some of the shows that I hear about (I don’t watch TV hardly at all, and haven’t in…6 years or so).

      That is so true about the men! I love when my husband discovers some new tidbit if information that I’ve never read.

      TV has become such an entertainment gamble; the same shows aren’t even on at the same times or the same days half the time.

      And thank you for your caring!!

  2. I still cannot understand how those women don’t have a clue. My coworker is a surgeon and told me about a woman who came in to the ER 6 months pregnant, but didn’t know it. You don’t even have HCG in your urine by 6 months, so the pregnancy test was negative, but they found the baby on an ultrasound. Do not understand. Anyways, I’m glad you are feeling better! You are so much better than I was about not being a bitter infertile. I hated everyone with kids and refused to go to church for months.

  3. Hi! Stumbled on this post and have to say that that show freaks me out!! And ya, I’m a lil bitter myself…tryin not to be!!
