54: You Really Got A Hold On Me

Sarah & Kaela are talking about the paralyzing feelings surrounding infertility treatments!  They share their own experiences and that of listeners about their fears when it comes to big treatment decisions as well as things that motivated them and gave them encouragement to move forward and take another step.  They also share some recent news about three parent (DNA) IVF babies and a woman who gave birth to triplets - as in an IVF baby and spontaneously conceived twins!

53: Golden Retrieval

Kaela & Sarah are discussing the egg retrieval surgery!  They let you know what their experience was like and share advice and stories from other listeners (ahem, up your fiber intake).  They also talk about new stats on adenomyosis and an article linking a missing protein with infertility in women with endometriosis.  And finally, they share a story about a man who injected himself with his own semen...to cure his back pain. Yep, you read that right.
