Anyone watch Married to Jon.as?

Being home sick is dangerous.  Watching way too much tv.  There's a marathon on right now.  That poor girl!  The entire family has an opinion about when she should have a baby.  Yikes.  Talk about pressure.  I say this with my own personal baggage, of course, but I hope she doesn't have any trouble.

Re: Anyone watch Married to Jon.as?

  • I'm not really into these types of reality shows, but I watch because they live in the town next to me and I've met the Jonas Bros through my work (I work for a magazine). 

    I have a theory that the reason that they're editing/scripting it to focus so much on baby talk is that because she's going to announce she's pregnant at the end of the season... but I could be wrong! 

    Dx: High FSH, stage IV endo, homozygous C677T MTHFR and PAI-1
    Early loss 10/08
    Lap 1/09
    IVF #1 "natural IVF" - 1 egg retrieved, missed m/c
    Tried several mini-stim cycles with no response
    Switched clinics - dx'd as carrier for Fragile X
    IVF #2 MDL protocol Jan/Feb converted to IUI, BFN
    IVF #2 take 2: Antagonist, one embie, BFN
    IVF #3: Antagonist, no fertilization
    One last ditch effort at OE IVF (antagonist with Clomid) cancelled
    DE cycle #1 Jan/Feb 2011, BFP, ectopic
    DE cycle #2 June/July 2011 - BFP
    10/28/11 Baby girl lost at 17 weeks due to pre-term labor. We love and miss you.
    DE cycle #3 June/July 2012 - BFP, twins, both heartbeats stopped, D&C
    2 frosties but don't know what's next
    FET Dec 2012: BFP! Praying this one sticks for the long haul!

    may, your theory sounds spot on.  I've never seen an episode til today. Maybe I only think it's entertaining because delirium from my fever has set in.  Yah, must be the fever. ;)

  • Yup it is my dirty little secret!!  lol 

    The girl is annoying to me...she is like a wet noodle.  I wish she was more confident and assertive.  I just want to slap her and tell her to grow a pair and stop being so timid.  She also needs to tell mama j.onas and the rest of the family to mind their own business.

    I guess I am speaking from the experiences and eyes of a bitter, cranky, assertive 39 yo!

    I am AMA and all tests on H came back normal

    Ha!  I knew reb was a cool lady. :) I started out the day with the Kar.dashians.  lol. Sometimes you have to shut your brain down.  

    Thanks for checking in.  I wish the news was better.  Today, I'm a lot worse.  Positive that it's a sinus infection.  With the blessing of my RE, I started antibiotics today. Transfer is at 10:45 cst, acu at 10 am.  My sweet acu called to see how I'm doing.  I started crying.  I'm getting really nervous, Irish, both because of how monumental this transfer is, and because I'm worried my illness is going to interfere with a successful cycle.  I seriously feel a bit of cold feet.

    There you are! I completely agree with you about the wife.  I am extremely assertive, and frankly get paid to be aggressive, so a girl like her is soooo painful to watch.  Even when she speaks, she's so slow and talks so softly.   Gah!  Momma Jon.as is overbearing.  The dig about Dani using paper napkins instead of cloth cracked me up.  She and my MIL are two peas in a pod.

  • Ugh, stupid sinus infection etc!  Can't this universe give a girl a break, EVER?   I feel like I've never been PUPO so I totally get the monumental-ness of this ET!!! I have everything crossed that the nothing will interfere. Sending you the biggest hug ever:-)

    You get a golden star for dealing with a MIL like the one on this show!  She is a wackadoo - super controlling and passive aggressive.  I would tell her to zip it or beat it.  My DH and I lost some brain cells on this show last week - he is betting they don't make it between the overbearing MIL, the pressure from the family, and her supreme introverted timid personality verses he who lives for the limelight.  She is way out of her comfort zone.

  • Most importantly, I hope you feel better ASAP and that your transfer is perfect! It is such a huge deal, and you put it best, such a monumental transfer! I so badly want to see my DE girls KU once.and.for.all!!!

    Now, onto J.onas. DH actually is the one who puts it on when he flips through the channels, lol. More so, because he thinks over the next few years we will end up in that area of TX because his company is moving so many jobs to W.estlake. So, we like to see what it looks like there. But, yeah, she needs to speak up and open her mouth for once to the mom. Talk about pressure! I really hope it is not being edited for an announcement at the end.

  • Haven't seen it, but I wouldn't put it past myself to get sucked in if I were to watch an episode.  My "need" for brainless tv seems to have grown exponentially in the past couple years (hello Real Housewives addiction, and I've even found myself watching the Kardashians on occasion).

    Really hoping that the antibiotics kick in quickly and give you some relief!  Glad to hear that you are home and resting. Will be thinking of you tomorrow and sending all sorts of positive thoughts your way!

    Joulsie, I want to hear you say this with some pride!  lol.  The older we are, the harder we work, the more serious adult stuff we have to deal with, I see every reason to indulge in mindless entertainment.  :)
