You think I’m funny Hilarious? My blog readers might even be funnier. Here are some more of your Reasons to Laugh at Infertility….

Read more of your awesome reasons at SUGGEST A REASON!

“You are sick–runny nose, headache, sore throat, etc. Definitely sick. Not only do you try to link all of these symptoms to potential pregnancy (I heard you get runny noses when pregnant, right? Google “Sore throat sign of early pregnancy?”), but instead of being concerned about a fever, you are excited because your temps are actually high when they are supposed to be. Also, because you are potentially pregnant, you take medications appropriate during pregnancy or decide to just take extra vitamins. Ergo, you are still sick to make the experience even worse when AF inevitably arrives.”-Stace

“QUESTIONER: “Wow, I didn’t know you were married that long. How many kids do you have?” ME: “None. They’re on backorder. I ordered them, like, forever ago. I don’t know, they must be out of stock.” -Rachel

“I love the women I talk to that tell me that they have a “PLAN” for when they will have children. They tell me that they are planning to finish grad school, wait until this big project at work is through, or until little Johnny is two. Then they will go forward with this plan. As if a person has the ability to just decide- Now we are ready, so the baby will come. Wait, I guess most do have that ability!! -Jacki

“Finding out your supposed BFF is 7wks pg before she tells you. You actually work it out via clues left of her FB wall, then you do some googling and discover that she has been posting in a pregnancy forum for 3 weeks and has told her family and closest friends.”-Belinda

“You pick through your garbage to further analyze a BFN test-despite the fact you stared at it off and on for the whole night prior…” -Alexandra’s mum

“Also how about you go to the pharmacy to pick up your prescription of provera and clomid at the same time. This flags a concern so the tech tells you to wait for the pharmacist. The pharmacist explains that these drugs are harmful for pregnant women and then says “but obviously since you are getting them, you are not pregnant” Thank you pharmacist lady for reminding me that i am “obviously not pregnant”- Rooni

    …because you pick up your clomid prescription and a box of tampons on the same shopping trip.

  2. lynn says:

    …because you’re willing to dang quit your job, throw your whole career away, walk out the front door because, when you ask for your Transfer day off, your boss suggests you “reschedule your appointment.” holy dramatic! :)

  3. Alexandra's mum says:


    Funny you say that, I just wrote on my blog about picking up pregnancy tests and tampons at the same time, lol. The look I got from the cashier was interesting…

    And YAY! I made the list!

    Ive dug in the trash countless times to just see if the bfn turns into a bfp. Holding up to all types of light just in case I missed a faint line the first time.

  5. Stace says:

    I totally ended up on antibiotics after that post (which led to a search for how it would react with Clomid) and of course, not pregnant…maybe this month? Thanks for posting!

    My funniest one, which I’ve blogged about before, was after explaining single vs 2 embryo transfers to my mother. She said “Right. So if they both work, you can take one out and keep it for later?”

  7. Jenny says:

    Oh, that hit home! My best friend didn’t tell me until she was almost 10 weeks pregnant…

  8. Lindsay says:

    …I deleted facebook because it was embarrassing tearing up and/or crying in random public places when I would read new posts (almost everyday) about how “life is perfect” because of pregnancy and new babies…..when husband and I have been trying for longer than they have even known each other!!
    But I have to admit, I still ‘creep’ on my hubby’s profile…this way I can still be a part of the loop, but not have to comment or discuss the fertile-ness of others.

  9. KC says:

    Try explaining to a group of high school girls why you got married so young and still haven’t had a kid . . . ‘Don’t you get married young cuz you got knocked up???’

    Spent a night out with by best friend for my birthday at TJ Maxx …. in the baby section while she picked out clothes for her kids. And she wonders why I don’t hang out with her anymore!!! Clueless!

  11. Rachel says:

    Your BFF stops talking to you or answering your emails because she doesn’t know how to talk to you anymore since you’ve lost all of your pregnancies…I’m not waiting again for the “well we don’t really have anything in common anymore…” shpiel.

  12. Marta says:

    Hi Rachel, I’m so sorry for your losses. I’m so sorry to know that I’m not the only one who went through a similar story. i had a “friend” who was very supportive of me wtih my first miscarriage, who held me when I cried one mother’s day years back. But since she became pregnant and gave birth, I think it has become like those “we don’t have anything in common” moments. All of her Facebook posts have turned to poop. Seriously, they are all about poop, and how her infant’s poop is the most beautiful, poetic creation she has ever seen! For the sake of my sanity (and my lunch!) I have hidden her posts from my wall. I’m actually tempted to unfriend her entirely, but part of me stops short of doing so because she had actually been there for me all those years ago. *hugs* to you.

    @KC… so true. When I got married at 20 a lot of people (including family members) asked myself and my mom if it was because I was pregnant. Well 4 years, PCOS and a male birth defect later… no kids :(At least we made it past the year that people were also betting.

  15. Rae says:

    yup I too know that feeling married at 21 and I love the comments and questions about how many kids we have and having to say that after 10 years of marriage no there are still no kids. As well as having to explain to the kids I work with that no I dont have children of my own, when they think that everyone just gets married and has babies

  16. says:

    Wow, I think I do just about everyone of these! Glad I’m not the only one out there =] Check out mine and my sisters blog out our infertile journey!

    because you go for a walk around the neighborhood with your dog to get out of the house of course a pregnant girl with her dog will walk past you at 4 pm you have to have a dog too cant i have one thing you don’t!
