I'm Infertile Naomi, a pregnancy-challenged woman in her thirties who can’t understand why sperm and egg haven’t fertilized yet.

Tune in here for the latest in infertile celebrity news and infertility pop culture. When celebs, movies, books intersect with infertiliy, you'll read about it here!

You can also follow me on my blog 999 Reasons to Laugh at Infertility where I try to combine infertility with humor. I think I succed most of the time . . .

I recently had the extreme pleasure of interviewing actress Brenda Strong, who, in addition to being the voice of the deceased Mary Alice Young on the hit show Desperate Housewives, is also an experienced yoga practitioner, the creator of Yoga4Fertility™ and has experienced her own personal struggle with infertility. I chatted with Brenda about her experiences with infertility in Hollywood and her growing work within the fertility community. Brenda currently lives with her husband and son in Los Angeles.

    “I tell them if they truly want to be mothers, they will be. The only mystery is “how” that baby will come to them.” – Brenda Strong

The television reality show, The Bachelorette, is back! Here comes hair-blowing-in-the-wind, girl-next-door, Ali Fedotowsky, who is looking for love and marriage amongst 25 eligible bachelors. She will go on extravagant dates and fall madly in love with most bachelors, before making her final choice in that nail-biting, oh-so-dramatic final rose ceremony.

In the first episode, we see Bachelorette Ali talking to her potential suitors, telling them she wants marriage, pregnancy and lots of babies. We can pretty much guess that Ali and her boys are definitely not thinking about infertility during their first meeting. But infertility can be a huge issue in a relationship. Just ask previous Bachelorette, Trista Stutter, who struggled with infertility issues with her bachelor husband, Ryan. Luckily, they now have two little children but I bet she never talked about infertility during her hot air balloon dates!

This just in…

Angelina and Brad’s pet goldfish might be pregnant; Tom and Katie’s turtle could be expecting; and Paris Hilton’s beloved dog, Tinkerbell, might be having little puppies…

…and I am jealous.

There is a big secret within the infertility community that we don’t openly share. Our secret? We are absolutely jealous of anyone and anything (including four legged friends) that can get pregnant.

It’s almost Mother’s Day and those celebrity mothers are getting ready to celebrate. Newly single mom, Sandra Bullock, will probably be spending time with adopted son Louis. The Brad and Angelina bunch could be getting together for brunch in Venice. And an unconfirmed rumor reports that Suri Cruise wants to make french toast for her parents (but she’s not allowed to turn on the stove).

For the rest of us living in infertile land, Mother’s Day can be a difficult time.

While those celebrity and non-celebrity mothers enjoy their special day, this day often becomes a painful reminder of your inability to become one. Maybe I’m not the infertile norm, but I actually enjoy Mother’s Day.

Since I was young, my sister and I would find different ways to surprise our mother. From the sloppy pancake breakfast in bed to the adult brunches and gifts, this day is always about remembering how lucky we are to have such a wonderful mom. This year is no different. This day has always been about and for her so I’m okay with Mother’s Day.
