Why don't we have our own Olympics?

It dawned on me this morning that we are all being cheated. I don't mean cheated in the sense that we don't have babies in our arms, when we so rightly deserve them - although we are definitely being cheated in this way.

I mean - why don't we have our own Olympics. There are quite a number of different Olympic organisations. A brief google search found quite a few (but I am sure there are more):
* The Summer Olympics
* The Winter Olympics
* The special Olympics
* The Deaf Olympics
* The Senior Olympics
* The Fish Olympics
even the Geography Olympics

But when I googled "infertile Olympics" all I got was :

"Your search - "infertile olympics" - did not match any documents. "

So why don't we? I mean we have enough people, in enough countries. We are all immensely talented and we have all done so much training already.

We could have some great activities lined up. How about these :

* Little swimmer relays.
* Negative HPT toss
* Mood swing saucepan discus.
* Clomid induced archery
* Cycling??
* Trigger shot shooting

I could go on and on.

Come and amuse me with your own additions.

I'm suprised no one else has thought of that before. What a great idea I'm sure you'd have many contestants (although probably not by choice). I think it's discrimination that they don't have one already. What about surrogate swimming
pre-pregnancy pole vault
exasperated equestrian
or PO'd (that they're infertile) polo?

We actually do, its called the Pain Olymipics. Go to and see if you qualify.

How about "fastest to POAS?" "highest number of bruises from blooddraws?"
"most cooter-cam visits"?

Very cute :)

I am amazed that you did a google that came up with nothing. That's a sport in itself!

How about running in those big hamster wheels? That pretty much sums up infertility to me.

Or the hop, step, jump and stand on head in the middle of a freeway if it helps?

This would be the first olympics where having a negative drug test would rule you out of competition!

loving it!
