Last week I attended the annual American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) meeting in Boston. I was able to attend some intriguing talks and discussions about male fertility and female fertility, use of donor gametes, and a few on current research studies. It was energizing to speak with so many colleagues who are dedicated to this field, who value their patients, and who are working very hard to improve technology and services in the reproductive community.
I promised my other half I would not watch anything that MTV aired about infertility.
Some of you on Twitter may remember @MTVProducer trolling the infertility community last year looking for infertile couples for a reality TV show. I recall much discussion about how this would likely result in the "infertile" version of Snooki getting pregnant but then going to jail for leaving the baby in the car - or something equally dramatic and over-the-top. We were all scared of what this show would look like in the hands of MTV.
I rarely watch MTV anymore. Occasionally I check out the train wreck that is Teen Mom2 if I'm feeling particularly masochistic but, other than that, I don't really watch it. And that's OK because I'm sooooo not MTV's demographic anymore. I'm old. So I really know very little about this show True Life.
But when I found out that someone I *know* was going to be on True Life: I’m Desperate To Have A Baby I just had to watch. Could it be possible that MTV would treat this topic with the respect that it deserves?

At Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, red carpet pre-show host, Guiliana Rancic, fueled rumors that Hathaway is expecting. Comparing the Les Miserables star to the likes of Natalie Portman, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Rachel Weisz who snagged awards with babies on board, Rancic said a baby bump is the “ultimate award season good luck charm”.
Leave it to a Kardashian to start off the New Year with a bang! Reality star Kim Kardashian, and rapper Kanye West, have announced they are expecting a baby together. The duo have been rumored to be planning for a baby with Kim’s recent egg freezing procedure and her dream of twins expressed in a recent edition of OK! magazine. We knew this was coming; we should have known it would be the first of the headlines for 2013!
Most of the world is buzzing about Will and Kate’s heir-to-be. Bets have been placed, with odds that the future King or Queen will be named John or Charles if it’s a boy, or Elizabeth or Diana if it’s a girl.

The couple hadn’t been ready to announce the pregnancy. It’s speculated that she’s early in her first trimester.
