Well, here we are. 2014.
On to bigger and better things….like BABIES.
I’m calling it right now…I will be pregnant this year(and I KNOW a bunch of you will be too!). No ifs, ands or buts about it. Last year, in my mind, I would tell myself…well, maybe this will be our year….but guess what….that girl is out the door! No more maybes and more….this WILL be our year for babies! Power of POSITIVE thinking…and praying to God every second of every day. I know I don’t have much control over this whole thing…but positive thinking never hurt anyone….right?
So…IVF #2…I start stims this Monday, January 6, 2014. I’m doing a little different protocol. Instead of birth control pills, my RE has me on 2mg of Estrace twice a day. Yesterday was my last pill. I’m feeling better about this cycle. I know what to expect. I can give myself the shots with my eyes closed (even though I still don’t like them). The cost of it all STILL boggles my mind. If you don’t have insurance, you better have some savings or GREAT credit cards (with high limits like we do 🙂 Unfortunately, I have to stim on really high amounts of meds too (like 450 UI Gonal-F a day and 150UI of Menopur :(……last cycle it was for 17 days…ugg….let’s just say my meds cost more than my entire IVF cycle with my Dr…yah. But I’m not complaining or worrying. It’s only money right? Only money…
Anyways…just wanted to update quickly…I’m on the search for some meds…this is what you do when your insurance doesn’t cover anything…craigslist is your friend…I’ll write another post about that soon..
So…here’s to the new year and new opportunities…
IVF #2…let’s do this!!
