    While we all sit here whining about how hard TTC is....WHAT ABOUT THE SPERM???? What do THEY have to go through?

    This was an AMAZING video and I couldn't tear my eyes from the screen. I had no idea how hostile our bodies were...and I actually felt bad for the poor sperm. lol

    If your sex ed class in school was as lacking as mine...watch this video and share it with all your friends. You won't be sorry. :)


    Curiosity: Life Before Birth


    I don't know if the link is area dependent or not (i'm in Canada) but if it doesn't work for you, google and see if you can find it, because it REALLY is worth it. It's a show called Curiosity, and the episode was called Life Before Birth. :)

    AC1987 - Can I admit without sounding like a freak that I was close to tears for the poor guys who didn't make it? lol ;)

    I too, was amazed that ANY of us are here. It REALLY makes you appreciate just what a miracle we as human beings ARE. I had no idea before watching that, just how hard it is for that sperm to meet that egg.

    I spent all my teen years taking birth control pills, using condoms, and being EXTREMELY paranoid about getting pregnant. I took EVERY precaution. Now...I wonder just how silly it all was, knowing how few days in a month you're actually fertile, and how hard it is to actually get pregnant. It just changes you perspective. lol

    then you can charge him for hybernating his baby ( on a daily basis of course), charge for the pain and discomfort, charge for stretch marks, "inconvenience" of everything you can think of etc etc

    Im sure your charges will be a lot more than his - tell him to shhhhhh and just do the one job that he's got to do lol
