Audiobook recommendations? Currently listening to The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck and I’m enjoying it, but I’d also be open to listening to novels aside from self help books.

The Harry Potter books are some of the best audio books I’ve listened to. Very well done. Lord of the Rings was also very good. Currently going through the Lightbringer series and loving it

Hello all, We are about to start our first IVF cycle in the next 2 weeks. What questions should I ask my RE before starting the cycle to make sure we are doing everything right. Anything you wish you had known before you went through the cycle.

History: Trying for 3 years. I have a blocked fallopian tube on 1 side and the other ovary had a dermoid cyst that had to be surgically removed. The other ovary does not seem to be responding well and isn't producing eggs. Hence moving to IVF.

TIA!
