Where am I going with this? I'm learning that IF seems to be a game of hurry up and wait. My insurance will cover probably 1 cycle of IVF before we max out. And most of the meds for 1 cycle, but not even sure about that. DS obviously not covered, and they need 4 bloody vials. Why, I do not know. 10 eggs in a petri dish need 4 vials of sperm? I guess it's to be safe, but right there we're looking at $1065 with the shipping. Still don't know how much on meds. And that's the "cheap" sperm. That's the cycle that's covered. If it doesn't work, we'd theoretically be able to do FET for round 2, out of pocket, and I can't even imagine how we're coming up with the first chunk of money, much less the 2nd.
Bouncing around ideas for saving, raising, and otherwise procuring money.
On a happier note, it seems I am an EXCELLENT candidate for IVF. FSH levels are good, and when they did my U/S 6 months ago to check my ovaries I had 13 follies on the left, and 9 on the right. Apparently that's good. DH is rarin' to go - wants to see me pg yesterday, you know?
