Real House Wives Impersonator and radio host, Amy Phillips sits down with Molly and Amanda to talk about her harrowing journey to motherhood. Holy moly, have you heard of Hyperemesis Gravidarum? It’s TERRIBLE!!!!!

It’s basically morning sickness on steroids. She literally needed to mainline Zofran in order to survive. It’s a crazy story. Amy’s got a few crazy stories that she shares with Amanda and I.

Plus, Molly catches up the listeners to REAL TIME, with updates and visits with Dr. Kalan. Is she pregnant? Is she not? Find out!

Amy tells us about the horrors of Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

A different Amy shares her story about this awful, and rare disease.

Should you get tested for the MTFHR Gene? I tested positive! Which means that my body might have a hard time absorbing B Vitamins and Folate. This is not good for baby making… which is why I take methylated vitamins like the one’s listed below:

What the heck is ICSI?

Amy Phillips went to the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine (CCRM) for her IVF treatment. They boast some of the highest success rates in the country. They have locations throughout the country, so you don’t have to fly to Colorado like she did. Check them out!

As always, big shout out to Dr. Kalan and his team at the Los Angeles Reproductive Center! He’s been amazing during this whole process.
