I've been on this journey for some time, but am just beginning my first IVF cycle. Your film made me laugh, cry, gave me hope...and helped me feel so much less alone. Thank you for everything you've done and continue to do for this community! Also, I have had similar running conversations with myself about what I should be doing "better"...and I may have actually yelled out "but crackheads get pregnant all the time" on more than one occasion ;)

Don't Count Your Eggs

Thanks for all the well wishes everyone!! I'll try to answer the questions here:
-- Yes the movie is called One More Shot and it's on Netflix, here's a link, I think https://www.netflix.com/search?q=one%20more%20shot

-- The third embryo was used by the donating couple. Three embryos were created when an infertile couple used an egg donor to build their family. They used one embryo and boy was born to them. They donated the other two. One is Momo, the other is currently in my belly noshing on cheese puffs, almond cookies, and an orange. I hope he/she doesn't have second thoughts.
--Pamela, F YEAH sister. It's been a long ride. Thank you for updating me/us. Wishing you all the luck and love in the world.



I can't seem to find your movie on Netflix. Do you know if it's still available


I can totally relate to your thought process...lol. Im also excellent at blaming myself and where it worked [in my case for a few weeks] I credited other things external to me- only to blame myself again when it was lost. Can I ask where is the third embryo you mentioned ?


We’re back in it too and this is exactly my thought process. Sending good vibes!


Thank you so much for sharing your baby journey. I have watched it twice now since it's been out--it gives me so much hope. The best part was when you realized there was a faint line on the pregnancy test. I totally understand and relate to your thought process about preparing your body, eating too much of this and that and not doing this or that right, just beating yourself up when, yes, even crack heads get pregnant. I am 41 and began trying to conceive on my own two and a half years ago. It's been so hard!!! But, I don't regret any of it. I don't know if I have truly given up just yet but stories like yours (and those shared by others TTC in your film) give me so much hope and resilience.


Maya Querida! We are thinking about you from Chile! Thanks so very much for all you have done for so many of us! I really hope all goes well! Fingers crossed!


This is so good - you are so strong, and funny! I’m praying this works!


I've also enjoyed your posts, and have read all of them! I am, and always have been, very proud of you. You have a wonderful determination to get what you need to get done, and if it sometimes means missing yoga or an extra cup of coffee, so be it. That "One More Shot" not only got made, and had a glorious ending, but also got picked up and is available to a worldwide audience is credit to you guys as storytellers and filmmakers. And that you're going back this week to make the effort to give Momo a sibling is another example of how you have been teaching her to share. She is a remarkable addition to the family, and our fingers are crossed that this trip to Seattle results in another addition. But whatever happens, know how much you are loved by friends and family, and how grateful so many of us are for how you've enlightened our understanding of what is an enormously difficult and challenging process.

I just wanted to say that your blog lit the path toward donor embryos for my husband and me (after 3 failed IVFs), and I'm currently 36 weeks with a boy. So happy and so grateful for all of it, everything that led us here.

On Facebook the other day, I encountered another woman considering donor embryos who said your film pointed her in that direction.

So, no matter what else is true, what you've done is so valuable to so many people (and so many babies who otherwise might not exist). Thank you. I'm sending every bit of luck your way for Momo's genetic sibling to snuggle in for nine healthy and happy months!


Yeah! Will be thinking good thoughts for you! I remember blotting my armpits every time walking up the stairs to our clinic! So excited for you as a big part of me wants to go back for FET 2, I am about to turn 43 and we are still paying off baby making debt.. probably not in the cards. Of course, so thrilled to have one. Good luck! Love the film by the way.


I watched your documentary this weekend after my 2nd frozen embryo transfer while on bedrest (1st attempt was failed from over 1 year ago, sprinkled with a 2nd miscarriage in between, and I have an almost 8 year old daughter naturally conceived). It was heartbreaking watching your journey but wonderful knowing you have your beautiful daughter now, and eye opening all the other stories of other couples. I've been on this seemingly never-ending journey to conceive and truly am so grateful that you and Noah have shared your process so openly. I decided to google "one more shot" today and it led me here to our blog. Funny coincidence to see you are embarking on your next FET as well. I wish you all the best of luck!
