A quick update on where we are with IVF this year. Puppy sales have gone well. So far we have added $600 to the fund, with another $300-600 coming in. Since the stove purchase, we can now focus 100% on saving towards the cost of meds and the cycle. Insurance from my new job has kicked in, so I will be scheduling the blood work, HSG, and SHG in the weeks to come to get them out of the way. The last niggling thing I have is getting our W2’s sent out to the EMD Serono Compassionate Care program to see if we can get a discount on the stims.
So, as of right now, we are still on target for fall. CNY will be having me do a long lupron cycle, so if I can get my stims covered, that would make it even easier to try September/October. I also want to ask them about Lovenox for my MTHFR. They didn’t seem to think I would need it, but really, with only this one shot I think I would rather be safe than sorry. Considering even scheduling acupuncture before transfer just to make sure all the bases are covered.
So close to no longer being in this horrible limbo. Yet so far at the same time. Trying to stay positive, but it’s next to impossible. Our entire culture revolves around children and family, and it’s hard to stay afloat through that. But I am trying.
