Hey.  You are doing IVF this month right?  How are things going?  Thinking of you...

TTC #2 for a million years: SA normal, CD 23 bloodwork shows nothing amiss, ovulation detected. Next step: ? maybe CD3 bloodwork to check eggs? All out of pocket, so limited IF tests/treatments.

Re: KRoesToes

  • Oh my gosh, you're so sweet for remembering and asking! Yes, IVF is this month. I've been on Lupron for a couple of weeks and this weekend will start my serious stimulation medications. Egg retrieval and embryo transfer is scheduled for the end of the month. I'm so excited and stressed at the same time. I've got a blog going if you're interested: loveunderstands.wordpress.com. 

    How are you doing? Are you still trying Clomid?

  • I'm super excited for you.  I know this has been a long time in the making!  I will definitely be following your blog.  I love that you are putting the costs in there as well.  It seems like that info is so hard to find. 

     

    Eh, we are the same.  James did go in for an SA last week (finally!  I feel like he's been saying he'd do it for years).  We are still waiting for the results of that...after which time we'll see where we stand.  It's so hard to justify spending $ on treatment when we already have Tman, but we both want another child (and Tman asks for a sibling a lot - so sad).  Thanks for asking.  You will be in my thoughts and prayers this month.
