I've been MIA lately...we found out that we have only a 3% chance of having another child on our own and that we'd need to do IVF with ICSI. We are 100% out of pocket and aren't sure what we will do yet but most likely we'll wait until the beginning/middle of next year if we will go forward.
For those of you who are doing IVF, are any of you fully out of pocket? An IVF with ICSI cycle here is about $13,500 plus $3-7k in meds. How are you maintaining your sanity especially since it's so expensive?
Also for those who are or have gone through it, how is it, really? I'm especially wondering about the egg retrievals and the embryo transfers. It just all seems so overwhelming.
I really don't know what we're going to do. DH is fine if we only have our DD. Ideally he'd like another, but it just seems so risky to pay $20k for something that has a 50-60% success rate. I would really love another but I am nervous about both scenarios-doing it or not doing it. ::Sigh::
Any experience anyone has would be great!!!!
