When Poor People TTC

Mona Darling

Totally not cool, I know, but my infertile sister in law refers to TTC with out scientific intervention as, trying like the poor people.

“Well honey, nothing on tv tonight. Want to try to make a baby like the poor people do it?”

My sister in law is one of the most hilarious people I know.

We have a ton of friends here at the wedding, and one is in her second month of TTC like the poor people.

Not that I would ever say that to her face. I don’t think the fertiles would find that as funny as maybe I do.

So, here I am in the middle of my month long booze and caffeine detox and she looks at me, over her like, fourth cocktail of the evening and says, “I’m ovulating this weekend. How great would it be to conceive here!”

Yeah. In your second month of ttc? While drunk? FOR FREE??

I just can’t wrap my head around the whole situation.

I’m going to try to ignore it and concentrate on consuming as much local island food as possible.

    Don't you just know that in three months time she'll be announcing her pregnancy?

    And hey if IVF is good enough for Angelina Jolie (allegedly) then lets not slum it with the carnal act.

    Oh, the agony. A tropical place with no tropical drink in hand.

    No Kona coffee for my girl. Only poi for you. Or is it poy? The awesome purple stuff?

    All that crap you soaked in from her stacked up your Awesomeness Points to exchange away Bad Luck.

    I am so excited to see this FET roll right on down easy street.
