In light of mdluv's poll, I'm curious....
I'm lucky enough to have fertility insurance coverage (for now), but if not, DH and I have talked about how much we would spend. (My number is higher than his, so we still have some more discussing to do if it comes to that.)
Counting diagnostics, testing, treatments, etc., how much would you be willing to spend to get a baby given your current financial situtation?... you know assuming you don't receive a large inheritance or win the lottery.
Obviously, we are all hoping our current or next cycle is the lucky one, but above what you've already paid, how far would you go?
