Caution: Bring your tissues and/or Fertility Therapist
The movie, "What to Expect When You’re Expecting," is hitting theaters. Conceived from the bestselling pregnancy books, the story follows the relationships of four couples dealing with pregnancy, infertility, adoption and parenthood. The film has big named stars including Cameron Diaz, Matthew Morrison, Elizabeth Banks, Jennifer Lopez and Anna Kendrick.
Morrison and Diaz play a couple who find themselves pregnant; Banks plays the wannabe mommy who is struggling to conceive (bring your tissues, ladies). Jennifer Lopez is hoping to adopt a child from Africa, and Anna Kendrick finds herself with an accidental surprise after a one night stand. An added bonus is a special guest appearance by Kim Fields (Tootie, from "Facts of Life") as the adoption agent.
If you are debating whether or not to see this movie, consider this.
- Do not see this movie after a failed cycle, negative pregnancy test or if you just plan to cry the entire time.
- Do not see this movie if everyone in the theater looks pregnant.
- Do not see this movie after attending a baby shower, a fertility therapist appointment or finding out that your cousin is pregnant for the third time.
- Do not see this movie if you feel hormonally charged from Clomid side effects.
- Do not see this movie if you think it will make you feel depressed.
Personally, I plan to see this movie because I like a film that deals with infertility and adoption, and I always like to torture myself by seeing a film filled with pregnant women.
