When a friend sent me this in an email, my jaw literally dropped to the floor! Of course she was as appalled as I was!
REALLY?? I MEAN, REALLY? What kind of BS are they selling? I find it funny, actually. For some people to think that me making pasta for my husband would suddenly make me ovulate when I haven't for over 10 years. Things would magically fall into place with the "spicy tomato sauce". Hey, if I believed it for a second, sign me up! We would be eating that every night for dinner. I would definitely be celebrating my first of many Mother's Days this year. But no, eating pasta does not make you pregnant. I hate to break it to you lady who wrote this in her blog and Glamour, who published it in a cookbook, but it just doesn't work that way. As we have discussed before, there are a million things that have to fall exactly into place for a baby to be conceived. Otherwise, I wouldn't be going through all of this! She must not have really been suffering from infertility because if she were, it wouldn't be the pasta that made her pregnant! Everyone's entitled to their opinions, but sometimes people's opinions can be downright absurd. This one heads to the top of the list for me at this point in my life. Come on, I mean I am truly happy for her and her family, don't get me wrong. But seriously...this lady needs a little lesson in appreciation, recognition, empathy or whatever you want to call it for those of us out there who seriously understand that this recipe is a complete slap in the face to women who struggle from infertility. At least that's how I feel. I feel appalled that they would even go so far as to publish this in a cookbook! Thoughts, anyone?
