Laughed So Hard I Almost Peed

I'm posting the Friday Blog Roundup later this afternoon, but this post absolutely couldn't wait. Jessica over at Getting Pregnant the High-Tech Way has pretty much the best IVF conversation in history written out on her blog. You need to go read it and laugh hysterically. And then come back here and tell me the best thing you've ever heard someone say about IVF*.





*And by "best," I mean "funny." I'm not talking about those conversations where the person tells you that you're going to hell or you're going to end up with 17 babies. I'm talking about little-baby-faces-pressed-up-against-the-side-of-the-test-tube stories. And it can be any form of ART--not just IVF.

if I ever needed a FRIDAY giggle it was today. That will go down in the books as the best IVF discussion ever.

*still laughing*

Oh good god. That was funny. i can't remember any stories right now......

Other than the time I showed up for a 8 AM visit with the cooter cam and said "mmmmmmmmm I love the smell of strrups in the morning!" and the nurse stiffled a laugh while Dr. M looked at me like a lunatic.

Or when our embryologist made a joke about putting the eggs and sperm in a petrie dish, turning the lights down low and putting on a little Barry White....

Still not as funny. ;)

I'm not sure how her husband made it out of there without peeing in his pants! Too funny!

During our IVF class, the embryologist, who is British, was describing ICSI to us, and showed a video clip to illustrate. The first step, she explained, is to "thwack" the tail of the sperm to immobilize it, which we saw happening on the video. T and I giggled, and she did, too, but the other couples in the room did not. I still think it's funny to think of T's sperm being thwacked by Allison (the embryologist) and dragged by their tails into the thin needle, and then forced into my eggs. Those disobedient sperm need to be put in their place!

My favorite was when discussing my upcoming IUI with a coworker, she asked "Do they really use a turkey baster?"
