Trying To Conceive

One of my dearest friends has been having difficulty falling pregnant, and last Friday, after more than a year of trying every which way, it was discovered that her eggs simply aren’t letting her husband’s swimmers in.  In some ways, that is kind of a relief – at least they know what the problem is now and can take steps to overcome that.

I particularly love that they are both keeping a sense of humour in the midst of so much emotional upheaval… which is why I think they will laugh at this very timely episode of Cyanide and Happiness.  And why I will continue to make jokes at her husband’s expense about his history of “breaking and entering” as a misguided youth.
