AF came this morning in full force. I am not pregnant, but I already knew that. DH and I talked at length this morning about the future. We discussed doing another cycle, but when we priced out the cost of a pure injectible IUI, the price tag would be almost $3000. Yes, $1100 for the monitoring, $500 for the IUI, and somewhere between $1000-1200 for the meds. Three thousand dollars is a lot of money for a shot in the dark, and frankly it's a start for the IVF savings account. We decided to call the RE to see what she thinks.
I left a message, the nurse called back, then we went to run some errands and I forgot my phone, so when I returned, I had 2 (that's right--two) messages from Dr. S. She even left me her cell phone number to call if I tried the office and she had already left. A doc's cell phone? How wonderful is that. I spoke with Dr. S, and she thinks that IVF would be the best route and wants DH and I to schedule time to speak with her about the process, etc. So there. We are now moving on to IVF.
There's a bit of clarity with this decision, and I might post more about this as I come to terms with it all. For now, it's TCM, regular exercise, regular life stuff, and of course lots of BD during fertile times. I know it is possible to get preggo because I have been a witness to my lovely bloggy friends who have achieved just that--a miracle. I know these stories, and I know that it is possible. I must look forward and that is my focus now.
