I just knew everything was going along too smoothly LOL! I picked up my meds and some of them were covered just not the one I wanted to be covered. I can’t complain too much because we have saved over $400.00 so far but the Puregon wasn’t and that was the big one. I am going to try to call my insurance rep tomorrow to see why it wasn’t and make a minor stink about it. The policy says Infertility Meds with a lifetime of $4000.00. I am using the Puregon for IF so to me it should be covered. We’ll see what happens but I won’t let it get to me, for some reason I just knew this was going to be an issue.

It seems funny to be posting a picture of these again! It was just over 2 years ago when I posted with the same title and this picture:Different counter top (I really wish I still had that one) but the same pills. So tonight I will begin taking this ironic little pill and hopefully get pregnant!

I picked up my BCP’s yesterday and I should be getting the rest of my meds tomorrow or Monday. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the insurance will cover the meds like it says it will. I am hopeful but I’m not stupid. I’ll believe it when I have them in my hot little hands for a fraction of the cost. We’ll see soon enough!

Now I have that AC/DC song "back in black" playing on my head! Anyways, AF was there to greet me this morning and so I called in with my day 1. Next they called me back to get my credit card #, heaven forbid they do anything before you pay for the cycle LOL. $8,300.00 later they call me back again with my schedule. I will start the BCP's on Friday and take them until July 16th. On July 10th I will start taking the suprefact shots. I go in for my baseline b/w on the 24th and if everything is good with those #'s I will start my stims that day. So it looks like the ER will be the first week of August. Which means I should know if I am pregnant or not by mid to late August. EEK! Fingers crossed!

Just when I thought time was going by so quickly it seems to have slowed to a crawl this past week! I mean come on, WTF, LOL!? AF is due on Monday but at this rate I am guessing she will be late. I think once I hear back from the nurse and she says that I can start the BCP's I will be fine... ya right. Atleast I will get my schedule and have a better idea of when ER & ET will be. I always find this part ironic... hoping for my AF to arrive so I can' start the BCP's and hopefully get pregnant!

I tried to fight it, I managed to for awhile, but I’m losing now. From here on out IVF will slowly consume me. I have already looked over the calendar today trying to figure out when my schedule will be. I entered my cycle stats in the computer and have it ready for my new stats for comparison. I have a rough estimate figured out of a possible due date!(I know that is so jumping the gun but I did it last time too LOL) I have already joined an IVF board. This time around will be different though, I have Taylor and she will definitely keep me preoccupied most of the day. It’s those nap and bed times that I worry about LOL!! Looks like I might have to start the goals up again.

We have been given the green light with my RE! I am to call in with my day 1, which should be some where between the 22nd and the 25th. In times like these though I usually expect to be late so by at least the end of the month I expect to be starting the BCP’s. There is a chance that we will be delayed or pushed back a month depending on their schedule. Hopefully this won’t be the case, but if it is it just means I could get my blood work & ultrasounds done in Kingston.
He asked me if I was hoping to be a satellite patient or if I wanted to start sooner. I said “actually…. I was hoping to call in with my next day 1”. He snickered and said it shouldn’t be a problem. I think he understands that once we get IVF on the brain it can’t start soon enough LOL.
Our % chances have decreased since the first time we cycled but it is still 45%. That is 20% higher than the average fertile couple so we can’t be unhappy with that. I am going into this cycle not expecting to fail but at the same time not expecting to succeed. DH and I have decided that this will be our last IVF attempt and if it fails we will be sad but at the same time we are totally fulfilled with Taylor. I thought that when the time came to make this decision I would be devastated but I am actually okay. I feel relieved and content with this decision (for know anyways, LOL). I know that feelings can change but I really think I will not change my mind. I am a total planner and when I have one I just feel peaceful. This plan will not deter me from stressing and over analyzing everything about my cycle but it will relax me once the transfer is done (if we make it that far). LOL, I am going on and on about it failing! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely would not bother doing this if I didn’t think I could get pregnant, I can, and have! I really want to have another baby, BADLY, I just know it may not happen and after some sadness I will be okay.
