There Must Be Something in the Water

There Must Be Something in the Water

While standing around the water cooler you over hear a conversation between a group of your colleagues and it goes a little something like this:

Colleague #1:  Did you hear Gretchen is now pregnant?

Colleague #2: No I didn’t, but I did hear Tom’s wife is expecting twins!

Colleague #1:  Didn’t they just get married two months ago?

Colleague #2:  Yep!  Crazy!

Colleague #3:  Jane is pregnant too.  She just found out on Friday.

Colleague #2:  I heard Angela in the billing department is due early summer. 

Colleague #1:  Did you hear about Linda?  This will be her third in under five years!

Colleague: #2:  Is she back with Tim or that one guy from the Christmas party?

Colleague #1:  Back with Tim.

Colleague #3:  Wow!  That makes 11 co-workers pregnant!

Colleague #1:  There must be something in the water!

Ummm…no!  You have been drinking this same water from the same water cooler for months and you are still not pregnant.  Listen up ol’ colleagues of mine!  There is nothing in the water!  You know because you foolishly convinced yourself that maybe some type of pregnancy hormone was actually lurking in the water, and you have been drinking bottle after bottle. But would you like to know what is actually in that water?  After much research you have discovered there is iron, selenium, magnesium, zinc, chromium, cadmium, mercury, nitrate, fluoride, bacteria, arsenic, and perhaps some delicious lead.

Glass of Water

Therefore unless a fertilized egg or a fertility doctor is swimming around inside of that water cooler, there is nothing in the sparkling H2O that made your whole office pregnant.  Perhaps Linda from sales and marketing is just a tad bit…well, never mind.  She is fertile.  Let’s just call her fertile.

Cheers from my water cooler to yours!

  1. Confirmed, apparently there is nothing in the water that is helping me at work or even at the fertility clinic! haha However, that is a gorgeous ring in the Zales at the end of your blog post!

  2. I think it’s something in the air that gets them pregnant. No joking..
    Actually, working on environmental issues, I do know that “something in the water” or “something in the air” can very well explain infertility at times. But it does not explain wonder-fertility.
    Anyways, if there were something in the water, I do hope that the magic gets to you very SOON!!

  3. This reminds me of when I took a new position at work. The reason I was hired was because she was leaving for maternity leave soon and well, she was there because the other girl before left to be a momma too. Everyone laughs that this desk up here has magical baby powers. hmph…

    Cute post doll! I need more water apparently 😉 Too funny! XO


  4. I started drinking new water at my new job and there in now way is pregnancy in our water. Most women I work with are much older and have grandchildren. If anything is in the water it is anti fertility.


  5. There’s a woman at my work that’s said the “some in the water” thing more than once, and then looked over at me like, oops, how is she going to respond? I then feel obligated to make some kind of corny response like, “Get me a glass!”
