Married 5/3/14, TTC ever since
DX: Lean PCOS, Clomid resistant
Femara 7.5 + Ovidrel = BFP! Due 4/15/18
DH took this entire week off to spend at home with us. I decided it was the perfect time to begin potty training for DS. Today was day 1 and so far so good. He's peed twice on the potty and no accidents yet! (no bottoms on at all, so so much playing with the penis).
Couple of randoms on my end.. I ate so much food yesterday it was difficult sleeping last night. I physically felt like food was backed up in my throat worst feeling ever.I also found out yesterday that my BIL set a date for his wedding which will be next December 30th! I’m so relieved they aren’t getting married this summer which was my initial impression. So I should have at least 5 vacation days to use in addition to the time off I already get around the holidays to travel to Europe for Christmas and the wedding. Hopefully we can squeeze a stop in somewhere else as well because I would love to go to Ireland or Scotland.
Holy hell, I really hate insurance companies. When I was pregnant last year, I was told genetic testing wasn’t covered because I was under 35. We are on the same exact plan this year, so I went ahead with genetic testing since I’m now 35 (and will be 36 at delivery). The claim has now been denied three times. Apparently even though our plan didn’t change, coverage in a few specific areas DID change. Like genetic testing. So dumb of me not to have double checked this pregnancy, but it never even crossed my mind that genetic testing for AMA patients wouldn’t be covered. So. Natera (the company that does Panorama testing) billed insurance $8k. It was denied, so they billed me $775 out of pocket. I called back a few times and got the charges reduced to $449, then $200, then $160 if we paid today. This is why healthcare is such a fucking racket: insurance was billed $8k even though Natera will ultimately accept $160. So so so ridiculous and wrong. Edited for clarity.
