I was really impressed with a popular soap's portrayal of a miscarriage before 24 weeks. It was incredibly touching and hard hitting. The full range of emotions were presented without judgement. However, in the same show, I've been so disappointed with the way they have portrayed an ivf story. There has been minimal coverage showing the emotional anguish, no acknowledgement of the 2ww crazies, nothing associated with the difficulty of being around pregnant women or babies particularly those close to the character and then this week, they showed them taking their hpt on the otd in the afternoon rather than the morning. This character has supposedly been through this process 5 times so would know you test the first urine of the day. I feel they had such an opportunity to show infertility for the awfully painful process it is and in fact they have just glossed over it. Anyone else feel my frustration? x
