(Hello ICLWers. In short, I'm a 35-year-old with PCOS, endo, and male factor infertility. After two rounds of natural IUI, four of Clomid, and two injectables, I'm trying to figure out how to pay for IVF)
I haven't posted in a few weeks because I've been busy thinking. First, I thought I would just use the last two vials of sperm with IUI and shots. Then I thought "screw it. It's only money that's stopping me from the IVF so just do it."
Had I written this post a few days ago, I would have told you about my appt next Thursday with my clinic for the teaching session. But I would need to go to that appt with a check for $9k and it's not going to happen.
We moved last summer and have been unable to sell our old house. We're paying for the old house and our new place and losing about $1k a month. Until the house sells, I can't put out the money for IVF. It's ridiculous. I just hope the house sells fast so I can do IVF soon since my eggs aren't getting any younger. Who ever thought the housing market would prevent a girl from getting knocked up?
In the meantime, my body is still recovering from the last two rounds of meds. Period is now three days late and I've had cramps that could kill a cow. And I'm bloated and suspect that I look a little pregnant in my mid-section. The first person to ask when I'm due will lose a finger.
