    Ep 295: Safety Dance

    Matt explains what life on the set has been like with all of the new safety procedures in place. We get an update from the listener whose sister is no longer speaking to her after her pregnancy announcement, and the embryo donation signal goes out (Matt had to rifle through his signal files, but he found it). We also respond to a listener's question about our kid's future now that the world is crumbling around us.

    Ep 294: Guilt Trip

    Ep 294: Guilt Trip

    Matt discusses exploring his feelings of guilt in therapy, while Doree is feeling delirious from the last push on her book (or maybe from the smoky air?). We get an update from the listener whose husband was unable to perform on retrieval day, and also get some clarifications on cancer markers. Plus, Sam is settling in to life in Kansas.

    Ep 293: Feelin' Hot Hot Hot

    Ep 293: Feelin' Hot Hot Hot

    The SoCal heat is melting us, but we're soldiering on. Matt survived week two of work and Doree survived a week of intense writing, and Henry just kept being Henry. We hear from a lot of you about performance anxiety on retrieval day, and get some more thyroid info. Then we give advice to a listener who's struggling to make a decision about potentially retesting her embryos, and another listener wonders who the new guy is.

    Ep 292: Feeling Better

    Ep 292: Feeling Better

    Everyone's feeling pretty good about Matt being back at work, and Doree's book now has a cover *and* is available for pre-order! Eggheads, you know what to do. Pre-order her book here: linktr.ee/doreeshafrir. And yes, she will be reading the audiobook, which you can also pre-order! Plus, Matt decides that the thyroid signal is staying ON, and we also send out the performance anxiety signal for a listener whose husband was unable to do the deed on the day of her retrieval. And a listener sends us the email templates he used to successfully advocate for additional fertility coverage at his work. You can access them on Google Docs here:
    - Email to Co-Workers about IVF Benefits: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1U51rYFgr-iG3hqfsfCChjV3MfdQzmbEHkDgxtMoYab0/edit?usp=sharing

    Ep 291: Work It Out

    Matt's feeling some type of way about going back to work, and we discuss the results of Doree's latest appointment with DKB.

    Ep 290: Imaginary Cat

    Ep 290: Imaginary Cat

    Henry is an escape artist, and we're trying to figure out how to stay one step ahead of him. (Probably impossible.) We discuss DKB in the news and what it means to advocate for yourself as a patient, plus hear from listeners about being an older mom and moving to a new city. Plus, the medical mystery signal goes out!
