My Vegas

I think I am going to rename this blog "My Vegas," because after today, the gamble we are choosing to play is IVF. My consult was today and it went well. I am set to do IVF at the end of November/beginning of December. I'll update the sidebar to tell of the upcoming schedule.

And I left the RE with over half of the meds I need for this procedure. For free. All I need to do it buy Menopur. I can't believe they donated the Bravelle and Gonal-F and Ganirelix!!!!!! This is a huge savings. Don't get me wrong. We'll still be dishing out a bit over 10K for the procedure and around $800 for the Menopur!

Ouch!! Jeez it's absolutely criminal how much IVF costs.

BUT! I'm so excited for you!!! I can't wait to hear how it all turns out!

Alex said...

Wow - how exciting! You're doing it! That's amazing about your RE giving you some of those drugs - what a great doc! C'mon, big money, big money!!!

You lucky duck, getting free meds!! Good luck with this IVF.

It really is a huige gamble isn't it?! I have tried to explain to people, its like walking up to a casino table and putting 10 or 15k down on one bet. Nobody in their right mind (unless rich) would do that!!! But we want our babies. High risk, high reward! I am so excited about your upcoming cycle....how funny we both made decisions today to proceed with cycles! I am so excited and eager to follow you. Praying this is the one. I love all of your dates, seems like the perfect time of year to get that bun in the oven! xoxoxoxox

Oh my goodness, how exciting! The saving money part I mean. ;) haha Seriously though, what a great holiday "gift" it would be to get a BFP!

Yeah, its crazy that you go through the entire IVF process and its still a gamble. But, it is one of the "safer" bets in town or so I am told. I love your timeline additions. I told me RE I am going to get to a 5 day transfer, yay for the power of positive thinking. I will be watching you :)

I had a feeling it might be something like this. My version not nearly as clever, however.
