We had our IVF consult. It went well.
We learned that we are going to be responsible for $4,020 (out of the total of $13,000 - a grant from NYS is paying for rest!) and quickly (with the tremendous help of awesome family and friends) organized a fundraising benefit that earned us $1,875! It feels SO awesome that so many people are helping us have a baby!
Our doctor's office then informed us that they will work out a payment plan for us for the remainder of the money. This was AWESOME news.
My period should be here today or tomorrow and I will start birth control, a daily vitamin and 81mg of baby aspiring every day.
Jan. 12th we go in for a teaching session for the injectable meds and a repeat HSG (oh joy).
Sometime mid-month I start Lupron.
Jan. 24th I go in for a baseline ultrasound and bloodwork. Our payment is also due this day.
Jan. 27th I start stimulation meds!
The week of Feb. 6th - our egg retrieval, and 3-5 days later - embryo transfer!
I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING. It is so so surreal.
We have about a 50% chance of this working the first try. Hopefully we will have frozen embryos for FET, but it would be even nicer if we didn't have to worry about that!
Also new - ERIN'S BABY GIRL! She is the CUTEST thing everrr.
Also new - Pinterest. I'm addicted.
Also new - If we have a girl, her room will be pink and white with owls. If we have a boy, his room will be blue and tan with giraffes.
In 5 weeks, we will be doing IVF! I can't BELIEVE it! <3 We're almost there, baby!
