A Twisted Perspective

I'm once again participating in Microblogging Monday.

Jeremy and I went to see the movie Gone Girl this past Saturday. While I enjoyed the movie, and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to spend an excellent couple of hours. However, my infertility was the third wheel on my date night.

I won't give away the plot, but there is mention of a fertility clinic and the notion that one go at the clinic is all it took for someone to get pregnant.

All that went through my mind was "Seriously? Her?"

I know it's fiction, and I know I should have checked my emotional baggage at the door. But, I didn't and it was at the front of my mind.

Is that what a girl has to do to get a pregnancy around here?


  1. I haven't seen that yet, but I totally agree that sometimes the smallest scene can be so distracting! I think the entertainment industry could really benefit from some knowledgeable infertility consultants...

  2. Oddly, this plot line didn't piss me off in this movie (sure did on first read though). Sucks when you're out for thriller entertainment and infertility sneaks up on you... A fair warning--DO NOT read This Is Where I Leave You--while initially hilarious, it has one of the WORST infertility portrayals ever. Not sure about the movie but I bet it's the same. Ugh...
