Success after IF

WTH, "Up"

So, if you've never seen the movie, Up, and you don't want me to spoil anything for you, stop reading.

It's on tv right now...I've never seen it and Sophie is napping, so why not, right? The main character and his wife can't have kids...this is told through a quick 5 min synopsis of their lives, including a scene where she is sobbing at the OB GYN...and then she dies.

Thanks a LOT!!! Now I'm a crying mess! Blaaaaarg! Maybe I'll just go outside and read instead.

  • Omg, we saw that movie during some of our darkest IF days and I just broke down sobbing.

    It is a good movie though! I probably just should not have watched it when I did.
    IVF, ICSI, acupuncture, meditation and a miracle... our baby girl is here!

  • Yeah, just watched it for the first time. Sobbed. And not just in the beginning.

    Damn IF.

  • I'm not even kidding you .... I have never seen the whole movie because I had to turn it off after the first few minutes because I was a blubbering fool.  I will never forget it either because I attempted to watch it for the first time when we were told we should do IVF and I didn't know if we were going to be able to have kids.  

    HORRIBLE.  I'll never watch that movie.  Ever.
