So after we got pregnant on our own and had a late pregnancy loss (21 weeks) 2/14/09 with our first daughter we weren't able to get pregnant again... So a year ago (April) we started seeing a RE and after a few drug boosted cycles and 3 iui's we are still not pregnant again. So we did IVF consult and are doing our first IVF cycle. We are self pay and they need the money up front so after already spending $10K+ we had to come up with another $15K... paid that this morning and then the pharmacy calls with the drugs ready to ship, total is $3650.... Seriously what the heck can possibly make these drugs so flipping expensive. I don't know how others who are self pay do it?! I think the money thing is more stressful than going thru treatment. It's going to happen this time, has to!!! :) Just had to vent thru my tears today.
