It's our 100th episode, can you believe it?! We hardly can, which is probably why we forgot until the middle of the episode. Anyway, we have some updates from last week's doctor's appointment and Doree has entered a new, extra-fun phase that means that Matt did most of the talking on this episode. Don't let that alarm you too much, but just be aware that there are a few detours into YouTube-land. Plus we hear from people about their own experiences with fresh transfers and the egg signal goes out for a woman with herpes.

Matt wants to meet up with Eggheads in London but he doesn't know where to do it. If you have suggestions, email us! doreeandmatt@gmail.com or mattanddoree@gmail.com.
