Matt and Doree did a beta test... well, Doree did. (Twice.)
It's a two week wait party! Doree's been watching Victoria and might take up knitting. Matt has been working a ton, so no time for Victoria or knitting. Plus, they give advice to a listener who just found out she has celiac disease, and they hear from a surrogate who has advice about what people can give their surrogates as gifts. And of course they get updates from Lex from the road.
Guess what? Doree's embryo transfer happened on Thursday! Yup, that's a week before her original date. You know what they say in IVF: don't ever plan anything because your plans will inevitably change. This week they also hear from listeners about panic attacks, "floating" boyfriends, and untreated diseases, and give advice about how to best support your surrogate and keep yourself distracted from all this infertility bullsh*%^t.
Matt and Doree discuss a new study about antidepressants during pregnancy and an article that was skeptical of PGS testing. They also hear from listeners who are pretty adamant that the woman whose friend had pre-eclampsia should have an honest chat with her about her husband. And they give advice to a woman who feels that because she didn't always want kids, she's an impostor in the infertility community. Plus Doree gets binge TV recs for her two week wait!
Doree and Matt have updates from the doctor and the insurance company, and they hear from a listener who's also getting put through the insurance wringer. They also give advice to a woman whose husband has very few sperm and to someone who just can't stop thinking about getting pregnant.
