It’s no secret. You will watch pretty much any movie that has to do with infertility. But when the movie, Baby Mama came out, you couldn’t wait to watch it. You would have watched it at the movie theater but you wanted to see it alone, just in case you needed to cry.
In Baby Mama, Tina Fey plays a single woman who waited a little too late in life to get pregnant and explores her fertility options. She decides to choose a young, crazy woman to carry her baby. First of all, Tina Fey plays a 37 year old woman. Is that really “too late in life” to have a baby? If so, we are all in trouble now and especially in trouble if we want a second or third baby! So did this movie actually make you cry? Really? I believe that Fey was actually pregnant during the movie – that’s irony for you.
During your next period, I suggest you rent any of the following movies about infertility, just to rub more salt in your wounds. Get yourself lots of chocolate and enjoy!
