Do you watch their show on E? If you haven't, it's basically about their life as busy professionals living in different cities, but the biggest variable that they talk about is infertility. While I get they are struggling, I don't like they put so much emphasis on "we've been trying for a year and it's just really hard". My issue (aka: my opinion) is that it gives false hope to people that have been trying for 6 to 12 months that they are now infertile. This isn't the case. And, most of us don't have the funds that they do and aren't able to dive right into IUIs and IVFs. It's just not in the budget. While I enjoy the show, that is the only bit that just gets under my skin.
I know what infertility is like. I know what trying for a year feels like with no positive pregnancy test. I know what 4 years of that feels like. I've done it. So, in that case, I feel like I have the right to form an opinion about this. I'm also not calling them fertile. I do realize that they have been through the process and have had all the tests done to know that there are issues. I just don't like how they put such emphasis "trying for only a year and being at the IVF stage."
Now, this doesn't mean that I don't want them to have success. I absolutely do. When I was watching the most recent episode and they were going through the whole IVF process, it was quite the emotional roller coaster for me. Now, I haven't ever been through that process, but I could just feel what she was feeling when it was all going down. The things our bodies have to go through to make this happen is just crazy. And the fact that it worked for them made me so happy. I think my problem is Giuliana, while cute and funny sort of drives me crazy. And Bill, well he just puts up with it and while it's really sweet sometimes, he's too much to handle other times. I don't know. Again, just my opinion.
If you watched the last episode, did you see the preview for the upcoming shows? Holy bologna! I don't know what's going on... if it's just drama or if there really is something that goes wrong. Either way, I don't think that I can watch much more of it. It's just too real for me and if there are complications and things, I just don't think that I'm ready to watch that sort of thing play out for another person. I know it's real. I know it happens. I just don't need to relive it right now. I'm trying to stay peaceful, stress free, calm and positive. Just watching those previews made everything jump a little bit and I didn't like it. So, for now, I'm pulling away. I cannot watch it. It's just too much.
