So, I don't lurk on The Bump at all, but thanks to some Nesties here (*cough - KB - cough*), I read Taking Charge of Your Fertility and then What to Expect Before You're Expecting.
Ever since reading those, I've noticed a lot of pop culture references that are "wrong" -- and they're wrong about things that the books point out that most people mess up, but now they're just more obvious to me.
For example -- when Jesse Eisenberg hosted SNL and said he knew a lot about women and then made some joke about "Well, I know that every 28 days..." I was screaming at my TV "NOT EVERYONE! It's anywhere from 24-40 days, you idiot!"
Tuesday night on Parenthood (mild Spoiler alert, but not really, because it's an old plot line), two of the characters are trying to have a baby. The male reeeeaaaalllly wants to have sex, but his wife says "No! I'm not ovulating for two days! We have to wait!" and I'm thinking "Um. Sperm can live in the body for five to six days. In fact, old wives tales think that you're more likely to have a girl if you have sex 'early' because those sperm last longer. You can totally do it now and be fine."
It's kinda hilarious to me, since I didn't know either of the above things that I am now yelling at my TV about until I read both books...but seriously, TV. Get with the program. (hah. See what I did there?)
