Doree and Matt debate the phenomenon of people telling them "miracle" pregnancy stories.
Matt discusses a no good, horrible, very bad day that included a trip to the urologist, and Doree talks about how she’s been in a better mood since leaving her job — but somehow, that has meant more IVF anger. Then, Doree and Matt give advice to a listener who wonders if she should tell her boss she’s doing IVF, and put out the egg signal for single women doing IVF and for people with progesterone in oil shots.
Doree interviews a woman who was a surrogate and her husband about the experience, and they share their advice for anyone looking for a surrogate and for anyone who's interested in becoming a surrogate. Plus, Doree and Matt also hear from listeners about willpower and infertility "warriors."
Matt's still waiting to hear about his semen analysis results. He has also been smoke-free for over 6 weeks! There are responses to the egg signals about having a luteal phase defect and doing an egg retrieval as a trans man, and Doree goes on a mini-rant about being called an infertility "warrior."
Doree and Matt discuss their recent phone call with their doctor and talk about how they've started doing phone-free movie nights. Plus, the egg signal goes out for a trans man who's gone through having his eggs retrieved, and Doree and Matt give advice to someone who might be putting the cart wayyyyy before the horse.
