I was watching this movie last night and this is what the girl said..what does it mean?

the movie was "Its Complicated"..with meryl streep, alec baldwin, and steve martin. the scene was when alec baldwin was stuck at home with his new wife (agnus) and he says "oh you wanted to have sex"...and she replies "yea, i'm ovulating...couldnt you tell, i skipped dinner."

am i missing something here? does not eating while your ovulating increase your chances? lol

  • Not eating DOES NOT improve your chances. The only thing I can think of is (1) maybe she gets a little sick on the tummy or (2) she doesn't want to be bloated.
