Check out this video - I saw it on the RESOLVE website today. It's pretty good for a few laughs! Thought my fellow ladies will appreciate the TTC talk challenge! Of course we don't talk like this, not all the time at least, but the TTC lingo is in our lives everyday... on forums, blogs, twitter, chat rooms, articles...long time TTCers have it mastered! Do you?


This is a YouTube video made by an infertility veteran who created this video while on bedrest during the 2ww after her embryo transfer.
