Adventures in Infertility #95

#95 Old Wives' Tales

There are some really silly and funny Old Wives' Tales out there about fertility and pregnancy!  I found these particular tales delightfully dumb...

The Old Wives had quite a bit to say about nutrition and baby makin'.
  • Raw eggs, hot sauce and grapefruit juice should all be added to your diet to help you make a baby. Sounds sexy right?
  • Herbal remedies are thought to be linked to fertility, including the stinging nettle, false unicorn root, raspberry leaf and a Chinese plant called dong quai. Stinging?  Unicorn? What is going on here?  Are we trying to make a baby or a Liger?

When you make whoopie, visit "Funky Town", do the horizontal mamba, knocking boots, playing poker, business time...you get the picture.
  • Never think of pointy things during intercourse.
  • Make sure the moon is full – and it's more effective if it's a full moon surrounded by a “ring of fire.”
Now that you've got the picture it is quiz time!!  PRINT the game below and see how well you can do, you can find the answer key HERE.

*Laughter is the best medicine right?  Why not laugh at my infertility?!  I do not mean to offend with any of these posts, it is just a way to let go a little and see the humor in our situation. Please laugh with me!
