IVF documentary

Someone on the forum suggested a fly on the wall movie on Netflix called One More Shot. So l watched it last night. I bawled, laughed, and bawled some more. The couple documenting their journey are amazing. They are very candid and you can see the IVF process taking its toll. They tried some whacky shyte but it just adds to their story. Get your family n friends to watch this. It's not easy viewing but lm so glad l watched it. Thanks to whoever recommended it. Should be mandatory viewing for All IVF clinic staff and family /friends. Spoiler alert...happy ending...and like all stories...it may not be in the way we imagine. I for one am glad l watched. I'm full of admiration for the couple in the video.

Is there any other way of watching it? I share my Netflix account with people who don't know about our journey and don't really want it becoming public knowledge.

I think there is a way to delete programs yoyve watched. Log into NF account viewing activity n delete. Try it out first before watching.

I have searched for it on netflix but I can only find “vegas baby” , its also about Ivf

That's strange. ..Def not the one.

Yeah its strange. I typed in one more shot and it brought up a few other programmes and then Vegas Baby was one of them and just happened to be about IVF. I will have another little look tomorrow, now I am eager to watch it!

I personally preferred Vegas Baby to One More Shot.

It was quite nice to watch, made me feel a bit normal actually seeing other people go through it all.

I’ve just watched this - so many moments where they said things or did things we’ve done. An honest account of how ivf takes over your life but it also offers hope of making a family. Thank you for recommending it - I also had a look at her blog ...

I know it was so real & I loved the ending. Do you know much about egg grading? I have only heard of embryo grading in the uk but if eggs can be graded wonder why they don’t here. Also wonder how the DOR diagnosis she had is determined as again I’ve not heard it officially diagnosed here I was told my low amh & poor response meant nothing in natural fertility terms but it’s the only explanation I have for 2 years of nothing. What stage are you at? X

I watched it too - loved it but as I was already hormonal I cried all the way through.. lovely couple and thankfully a happy ending.
