We had our much-anticipated consult with the new RE this morning. He said that everything looked good to go and he was VERY optimistic! With my DOR I've never had an RE be any level of optimistic and it's making me finally feel some hope! He said we could technically start the BCPs once I get my period which is supposed to begin on the 19th. However, I think we are going to need to wait until the following cycle to begin. The problem is that if we do it before 2013, the money we pay for the FET cycle wont go toward our 2013 deductable and out of pocket max (we have an HSA next year.) None of it is covered at all, but at least if we wait to pay for it in January it mean that the rest of our health care for 2013 (including maternity, god-willing) will be 100% paid for. So as much as I'd love to get started right away, it makes better financial sense to call with my January period instead of December's. So the way it's lined up currently - I will do the SHG either next week or the following (praying no polyps), I start BCP with my January period, and then the actual FET would be sometime in Feb.
I love the new RE, I love the new RE staff, I love the clinic itself! They said that we were already well known around the office because of our unique DEmbryo situation, and the staff had a meeting specifially about us on last Friday! I feel like we are definitely not just a number on a conveyer belt and we stand out from the crowd. That can't mean anything but good things, right?
There's our update. I hope the rest of you are having a good day. Almost the weekend!
