Paranoia, and when can we do it again?

I check my insurance claims website as much as I obsess about getting knocked up, and that has caused some worry this afternoon. The surgery that was approved is now "under review," and that scares me seeing that any IF diagnosis or treatment is not covered. In an effort to be prepared, I have started drafting my appeals letter. Ugh! I should just NOT look at this darn website anymore, but I can't help it. I have to remember that my doctor's notes diagnosed me with a disease, not IF.

In other news, we are restless around here since it has been over a month since we did the love dance, and I called the doc today to ask, "When can I resume relations?" The rule is 2 weeks, but I don't know if I can last until December 24. Anyone else break the two week rule before?

And hey, what is up with the "two week" rule? There's the two week wait for POAS, two week wait to ovulate, two week wait to find out if the insurance actually paid for this surgery, and now two week wait to do it? Hmmm....

So sorry you are stuck in the 2 week wait to do it. Hopefully the "under review" is just because you just had surgery and the claims were filed for the surgery. Hope the next week flies fast for you!! You're over halfway there.

Like Nike says: Just do it! As long as it feels good your should be OK.

Uh, WHAT?? Now that the procedure is already done the ins co might not pay for it? That can't be legal, can it? I am in the same boat as you regarding coverage, I better double check that my ins co is still paying for my lap.

I hear you on the lovin'! I've been having dreams... Another week is going to DRAG by! Hang in there :)

ugh, it all sounds so frustrating. IF is definitely a lesson in patience. Just remember, when you finally get to do the love dance..it's going to be crazy ;-) Hang in there!

I am sorry your insurance claim is back in limbo! I am confident that with the polyps and fibroids and the endo cells you will be fine. If your doc didn't submit it under one of those diagnoses they can just resubmit if it is denied and I'm sure it will be fine. Mine was covered (even with sh*t IF coverage w/ my insurance) even after they didn't find ANYTHING (yay for the "pelvic pain" reason code!). You are way more legit than me, I'm sure it will be fine. :)
