Fun with IF

So I was poking around on itunes this weekend and found some pretty good IF podcasts. I thought that you ICLWers were be just as interested in these as I was so I'll describe them for you.

The one that I've listed to the most is called Creating a Family. The podcaster, Dawn Davenport is an adoption attorney and discusses issues such as endo, adoption, ART, RPL, TCM, and all things related to alternative options to creating a family. Just now I finished her discussion with Mel from about her book. It was so cool to hear the conversation that these two women had. If you want to listen it is the March 4th episode entitle "Calling all Stirrup Queens".

Just relax it will happen is done by a couple. I really like this one. First of all they have way cool British accents so that right there makes me inclined to listen. Better yet, they are truthful and sincere about their personal journey through IVF. They have one daughter and are now attempting a frozen cycle. I can't find a link to this one, so you'll have to find it through itunes if you want to listen. But I highly recommend it.

The infertility Rollercoaster is one from the guys point of view. So far I find it rather interesting. But there aren't that many episodes and it is from 2006.

There are a bunch more but I haven't gotten around to listening to them yet. But in addition to the podcasts I found some other interesting items.
Apparently there was/is a musical called Infertility the musical thats hard to conceive. I love it. What could be better than listening to people sing songs like "I've got sperm in my pocket" and "the donor dating game".

The last thing that I was found was a song by reggae artist Lady Saw called "no less a woman". Just a look at the album cover tells me that this chick knows where I'm coming from. Maybe this should be my new theme song. Or at least my new ringtone. Hopefully this video clip embeds properly so you can see what I mean.

I love the Lady Saw clip. It has that attitude that I need most of the time.

I have always wanted to podcast about our IF but never the time.

Thank you for sharing that song. I've been in a real bad place with Infertility lately and I think that's just what I needed.

Thinking of you always and I know that our Angels are in heaven playing together and watching over us.

(((Hugs)))

All my love,
