a blog by Infertile Naomi, April 27, 2010
Against my better judgment, I saw the new movie The Back-Up Plan starring Jennifer Lopez. It’s a story of a 30-something woman name Zoe who decides to get artificially inseminated after finding herself single and alone in New York City. And, of course, she meets the man of her dreams in a cab shortly after finding out she has conceived. As a woman struggling with infertility, I expected to dislike the movie given that JLo gets artificially inseminated and pregnant on her first attempt. I’ve been inseminated four times without even a hint of a pregnancy.
But I decided to see the movie only because I had received free movie passes. And so, with a box of tissues in hand and a moody expression on my face, I took my seat in the theater.
