I have had a few issues with Greys Anatomy over the last few episodes about the Derek/Meredith trying to conceive storyline. I refuse to use the word 'infertility' to describe their experience so far as it has only been 6 months. A couple of things that have bugged me:
Meredith shrugging off her miscarriage I guess she had only known for sure for less than a day and it was an accidental pregnancy, and she had her husband being shot to deal with, but I think Christina put it best when she asked Meredith 'How are you fine?'
Meredith taking a pregnancy test every ten minutes She's a doctor! If she tested early and it was negative first thing in the morning then that isn't going to change during the course of one day. I get that it's funny and it's something we've all done, but come on. You don't need to be an OBGYN to read test instructions.
Callie is accidentally pregnant I actually love this storyline (because I love Callie, I love Mark, I love Lexie, Arizona not so much, but still) but the timing is contrived as a juxtaposition to the Meredith/Derek ttc storyline. On the other hand, isn't just how it goes - you get bad news, someone else gets pregnant accidentally.
However, as part of this storyline this week's Greys had an absolutely perfect moment. When Mark went to Derek about Callie being pregnant, Derek's face was great. So completely accurate - you could see his annoyance and shock and then just disgust with Mark. Awesome. It's nice to see the elusive Male Perspective on TV. We're so used to seeing half-crazed women peeing on a stick and breaking down in public that it was cool to see a man-man moment about infertility.
**On re-reading this post that in describing Greys Anatomy I've made it sound like a really bad soap opera. If you don't watch it, it really isn't as melodramatic as it seems... not always anyway!**
