REALLY!?! with Amy: IVF Edition

One of my favorite Saturday Night Live bits ever was Seth Myers and Amy Poehler doing “REALLY!?!” during Weekend Update.

I’ve found myself channeling them a lot this week.   I mean, the fertility doctors we’re paying to get me pregnant have like 30 years of medical school between them but somehow I’m in charge of preparing and injecting all of these complex drug compounds in precise dosages to myself every night.


And all four of those needles are just what I shoot up on a Tuesday.  Really!?

And that piece of pepperoni on my belly is actually skin.  Really!?

And this might not even work the first time.  Really?!

And oh yeah I can’t drink any wine.  REALLY!?!
