You know your body, and when something is going on, it’s important that your doctor is willing to listen to you. Jennifer Garner knows that, and she wants others to know it too.

Garner recently sat down with Ellen and talked about an experience early on in her first pregnancy. Lots of women have no idea they’re pregnant, but Jennifer “just knew.” She took a home pregnancy test to check.

She got back an ambiguous result.

So she did exactly what she was supposed to do and went to a doctor to confirm. The doctor gave her the same sort of test she took at home and then brushed her off when she insisted there was something different.

She summed up the result of that story pretty perfectly when she told Ellen her daughter is now twelve and she doesn’t use that doctor anymore. “So, I won.”

Twitter users agreed, and lots of people had similar stories.

Some were a bit scarier than Garner’s:

But most had happy endings.

Erica is the consummate cool-kid. She’s so cool that she’s been talked about in magazines, on blogs and on the radio after losing her left eye because of a piece of glitter. She is still actively mourning the passing of Prince and hopes to one day do an all-iguana remake of Graffiti Bridge since iguanas are plentiful near her home in South Florida. She has yet to find one that can really nail the “ahhhyayayeaheaheah” that Tevin Campbell does in Round and Round, and everyone knows the music is the important part of any Prince film. She’s a mother, singer, writer and (if the internet is to be believed - which we all know it is) a Nigerian socialite mid-ranking member of the Illuminati. She prides herself on being the most popular one-eyed rock star under 5 ft tall in pretty much any room she walks into.
