1. “Let’s Get IVF On” by Marvin Gaye

(Originally “Let’s Get It On”)

We’ve been really tryin’ for a baby

Tryin’ to conceive with P in V, for so long

And if we can’t for six months

Then, c’mon, ooooh, c’mon, whoa

Let’s get IVF on

Let’s get on the internet and research fertility clinics

Let’s get a consultation on the calendar, baby

Let’s love reading this confusing three hundred page consent form, sugar

2. “Primetime For Your Eggs” by Janelle Monáe

(Originally “Primetime”)

Tick-tock, that’s your bio clock

You’re forty-one, will this work?

You wanna scream because your dream feels so far away

For a baby

When you’re down and it’s hard

And you feel like you’re over the hill
