hi Gozal, I hope time is flying by for you! Waiting is such a pain so it's great that you will have family to spend the time with...it always makes me feel better to spend time with loved ones!!
Brichole, I hope that you're feeling better! How is everything going?
Deborah, I had 4 IUIs done. One was covered by insurance and the other three amounted to about $4K in spending. If I could redo it, I would go for the IVF first. It don't know why I didn't do well on IUIs but honestly, after going through all that and still ending up having to do an IVF, I'd give anything to just have not wasted the time on the IUIs.
AFM, egg retrieval today. According to the final US, I had about 32 follicles. Apparently, they really started cropping up the last few days of treatment. Personally, I'm just hoping that I get a few very high quality ones that I can transfer and hopefully a few I can freeze. We'll see! The next two days will be exciting. I was a little depressed that my retrieval day was pushed back (Retrieval was initially scheduled for last Tuesday but was pushed back 3 days to let the follies grow). I think it had to do with a mix of things- one, I want to go home. Staying in a hotel room for about 2 weeks is exhausting! and 2) this is just an added expense! Hotel living and eating out all the time is so expensive! Oh well, I'm trying to think of it as a vacation. However, it's hard not to be concerned with how much money DH and I have spent this year on medical stuff. Thank goodness we can claim it on our taxes!!
Hope all is going well. I noticed this thread is a little slow. I know I've been spending more time on the IVF thread because of the experiences but I really love this thread too and I'm hoping that everyone is going well!!
Attempted induction at 38 weeks; ended up with a c-section.
In love with my baby boy Colin and baby girl Sienna!
