  • @rallykat14 - My heart is totally broken for you. I am so sorry you are sitting here, facing this. I wish I had the words to make everything better for you. <3 <3 <3 

    @JuneRoseRuby , @LadyMillil , @rallykat14 , @beachbunnyxo123 ;  - Thanks for all the advice, guys. I haven't really started reading it, but I will today. We will see what changes I need to make. Unfortunately in this tiny town, we don't have any Whole foods or anything like that, so my options are Walmart or Amazon. /Shrug. I will see what I can find on Amazon. I have a hunch we are lucky since we already follow a lot of what you guys say the book recommends. We only use glass, we actually don't eat any canned or highly-processed food (we eat mostly meat and veggies). I didn't think about cleaning products. We use meyers... but I don't think that's on the "clean" list? I dunno. We will see. How long do they say you should make changes in advance? We are doing IVF in January, so I probably can't afford to introduce slowly.

  • Okay, I considered making this into its own thread, but thought to run it by ya'll first, to even see if there was any info. 

    Infertility treatment and FMLA/Short term disability/vacation/unpaid leave
    What do you all do? What are our legal options? 
    I'm lost here. I have to travel for IVF. Travel as in, 2500 miles round trip (I didn't choose the closest clinic, but if I had, it still would have been a 5 hours trip for me, one way). It's not like I can pop in for ER and FET and only miss a day. I assume since ER isn't very set in stone will 48ish hours before, I will need 4-5 days, to give us wiggle room so we don't have to wait to buy our flights day-of. For FET, I assume I need 3 days off. Pair those with needed to take partial days for monitoring (the monitoring place is same hours as my job, so I have to take some time... and an hour here and there adds up fast!). 
    I really, really, really don't want to use my vacation. We have a crappy vacation policy anyway (I only get 10 days/year), and I will need that time for (FX) if IVF works for pregnancy appointments, etc. Plus, I still want periodic days off (is that too much to ask for?!)
    Anyway, Is it possible for me to use intermittent FMLA? Or short term disability? What all is normally required of you to take these (notes from docs, etc)?

  • @KristoKekerooni I haven't used FMLA before, but one of my coworkers had to use it when his wife had surgical complications and when his mother was very ill. I'm looking over the language about using FMLA and it specifically says "poor health" in reference to oneself. Apparently there was a legal case where they ruled you could not use FMLA for IVF. However, I also found several pages where doctors say that they will fill out the paperwork. Legally, your employer cannot ask you what the "illness" is, so if your doctor is willing to do the paperwork, especially since you will be in the category of missing several days, then I'm guessing that FMLA could be used.

  • @emmasemm - yum!! Where abouts in China are you? I love the food there. I can't even remember what all I ate but every meal was magical. I went on a school field trip years ago and would love to go back.

    @KristoKekerooni - It's really hard to say, unfortunately, without knowing what you do for work, how supportive your employer is overall, and what your justification is for using a clinic that is 2500 miles away. It sounds like you'd need to take a significant amount of time off so there's a start (you can't use FMLA for just a day or two, for example). You'd need a note from your doctor, certainly, and you'd need to justify why you're traveling for treatment.  

    Is there an HR department at your place of work? I would start there to see what is feasible and what they'd need from you. You may be able to do a partial leave of sorts.

    Businesses are not required to pay you for the time off you take for FMLA so you'll want to look into that short-term disability option if you have it. My employer doesn't offer short-term disability so when I took my FMLA I had to exhaust my banked PTO (which I managed to reserve 12 weeks worth so I was okay - but still sucks that I had to use what I consider a good part of my job compensation to get paid for what practically every country on the planet covers for its citizens but I digress).

    Hopefully other folks will have information for you - there are a lot of variations and combinations one can use to get FMLA so as long as your employer is generally supportive they ought to find a solution that will work for you.

  • @AlohaKumu ; & @wishiwaspreggo :smile:
    So, my immediate  HR rep is super supportive and awesome.. corporate... I dunno. My justification fro using this clinic is the closest one is already five hours, might as well go for a cheaper clinic if I have to travel already? Maybe if they would cover this under insurance I wouldn't have to go so far. :disappointed:
    To be honest, While I prefer to be paid for the time off, it's not a hard point for me. I just need the time off, even if I take it unpaid. We have a really great STD program, so I would love love love to use that, but /shrug. I just need to not be fired. I have a brand new boss and I am really nervous to bring this up to him at all.

  • @AlohaKumu I will be thinking of you and wishing all the luck in December! For us, DH had a surgery when he was two and the details are a bit fuzzy because medical lingo isn't his Mom forte. She said he had one underdeveloped testicle and a healthy one that wasn't attached or something like that. She said he had surgery to attach the healthy one and that his doc said he should be fine. But she also swears he had two testicles and he most certainly does not. My Dr said she hadn't heard of a re-attached testicle and that she thinks maybe he had the scrotum re-attched to better house one testicle so it doesn't get twisted or contorted when they removed the other. I'm sure all that has something to do with this but its definitley a mystery. They would likely be able to extract sperm if that's the case but I'm just not sure were up for IVF :(

  • @KristoKekerooni - if you're not worried about pay (and are just concerned about keeping your job) I'd definitely discuss it with your boss and HR. You may be able to work something out where you're just not logging hours for the days you're out (my organization has an "absent without pay" earn code for time sheets - it's used in cases where employees are new and don't have PTO accrued yet or just don't want to use PTO if they're saving it for another purpose) so then you wouldn't have to file FMLA at all. But if you feel like your boss won't take you seriously without medical justification, work with your sympathetic HR rep first and he/she can draft something to present to your boss, be it FMLA or an alternative work plan so you can take care of your IF needs without disrupting your job too much.

    And I hear ya on the insurance coverage :\ I'd be on an IVF schedule now if I didn't have to wait 3 months for my health savings account to be replenished. I guess I should be grateful to have a sum of money at all dedicated for IF when others have nothing. Our healthcare system sucks balls overall.

  • @Avrilmai - good vegetarian sources of protein: beans and legumes (black beans, pinto beans, chickpeas including hummus, lentils), tofu, edamame, nuts, and nut butters. Hard boiled eggs make good protein snacks. If you like fish, canned tuna and precooked cold shrimp are great sources of protein. You can find good recipes that incorporate these things into easy-to-make snacks.
