Does Pandora know I'm infertile?

For the past couple weeks I have been beyond annoyed with the stupid advertising on Pandora for that Natalie Portman/Demi-Moore's-child-husband movie. I find Ashton Kutcher abhorrent, although I love Natalie. The teasers they played on Pandora for the movie were as relentless as they were repulsive. And nowhere near funny.

I knew it only had limited time to remain on there, and for that I was thankful.

Fast-forward to this week. The inundation of the week is a new show on Lifetime, called "One Born Every Minute". Yep, it's about babies. Being born. Constantly.

Photo from the "One Born Every Minute" page on the Lifetime site.

Here is the write-up on the Lifetime website:

The Real Miracle Is Surviving Each Other
“One Born Every Minute” takes an in-depth look at life inside the maternity ward at Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, as expectant mothers enter their final stage of pregnancy. From the delivery room, to the operating room, to the front desk, to the nurses’ station, 40 cameras roll 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to capture the high drama, humor and overwhelming emotion of childbirth as new lives begin and others change forever.

They even show a preview. Granted, this show looks slightly more appealing than "A Baby Story" or "I'm Pregnant and..." (Personally I think it should be renamed, "I'm Pregnant and...Your Not!").

Still. I'm over it! Please stay off of my Pandora. Plus, the ads associated with it are nauseating. A photo of a woman in labor. Making that labor face. Get off my screen!!! Ugh!

Give me Project Runway back, please. Take your labor and babies back to TLC where they belong!


In other news, I had my WW meeting today. I lost one pound! So I'm down 7.5 lbs total. I hoped to be doing better at this stage in the game, but I will take what I can get. I need to do better this weekend... but I'm not sure how, considering it is my sister's birthday and the Superbowl... ugh!


  1. Times like these, I'm glad I don't have cable. It would sound like an interesting show to watch..... if I wasn't IF. SIGH

    Good job on the 1lb loss!!!! That's awesome :D

  2. Ewwww. I hate that. I don't have cable, but the previews on Pandora bother me a lot.

  3. For some reason I felt like torturing myself tonight and watched some of that "One born every minute" show. What the heck was I thinking? I only made it through 10 minutes and then needed to change it...not because I was upset about babies being in my face but upset because of one of the couples I got frustrated with on the show. Not sure I will be checking that show out again!

  4. Eff that show. It keeps popping up all over my favorite smut website: People. Grr...who gives a shit?!

  5. Glad I havent seen it. Even though Im drawn to those kind of shows. Im addicted to teen mom and it makes me so mad but I keep watching.

  6. Oh yes - babies seem to be all over the place! Congrats on losing another pound!!!

  7. Ugh, thanks for letting me know. I will avoid pandora this week.

  8. Frigging baby stuff, frigging everywhere. I don't even go on Facebok anymore bc every time I do I find out someone else has a bun in the oven (as we'd say in NZ). It's inevitable, I know, but can it not be in our faces where ever we go??

  9. When I first heard that title One Born Every Minute it all most felt like a slap in the face. It really made me feel like a failure.
    I haven't seen any ads for it, but the title is enough!
    Congrats on the pound!!!

  10. Time to ditch Pandora and switch to Slacker Radio. It has way less commericials! Especially pregnancy related commercials!!!

  11. Ya know, even that Natalie Portman movie, the ads and promos for it are EVERYWHERE which hurts because I see her face everywhere associated with her "baby bump". My own fault for reading the tabloids. But I swear if I have to see Natalie Portman's face again I'll scream!!!!
