Deborah - Congrats. I am so glad it is looking better!

 

AFM - I am going to take a break from TTC and IF. Maybe permenently, or maybe just to decide what to do next (donor eggs, donor embryos, adoption). If anybody wants to keep up with me via FB, PM me your name on FB and I will add you. I am sure I will pop in here (or especially the grads thread) once in a while just to see how you are all doing. I just need to move on right now. Five years of TTC, and 4 years of IF treatments is enough, and it is time for me to move on. The bright side of this all is that at least I have DS, which I am of course very thankful for. I have learned a lot from IF and maybe the struggle was what all of this was supposed to be for. I have been really thankful to have you all in my life, and you have made this struggle so much more bearable.

toothfairy2be, I hope some more follicles pop out in time.

 

I am in for "experiences of others" boat too.  I called to make an IVF appointment today to figure out when and how to do the procedures and in order to make an appointment I have to pay a "case management fee" of $1007. Did others have similar fees added to their IVF treatments? It isn't covered by insurance at all - basically I think it pays for all the phone calls back and forth and office work that must be done to for me during IVF.  Just such a huge chunk all at once.  Is this amount "normal"?

Lilac- That's really expensive. Our consultation fee is $200 on mine. There is a coordination of care fee that is around $937 I think. Toothfairy- i had 11 follicles a couple of days before retrieval and they ended up retrieving 15. So, I would say it's very common.

Toothfairy - at my 1st u/s, on day 6 of stimming, I think I had 3-4 follicles around 10-11mm. 2 days later I had 17 follicles between 10-15mm. It sounds like your follicles may be growing a bit slower than mine but as you can see things can change a lot in 2 days. Anyways it's a good thing to have less follies than I did, I wouldn't wish my fate on anyone.

AFM - AF is 3 days late which is a totally new experience for me. I'm used to short LPs and AF coming earlier than expected. I'm not stupid enough to get my hopes up but I took a FRER this morning at 15dpo with FMU because I had a family dinner tonight and wanted to drink wine. Well it was BFN as expected. The problem is I'm waiting for AF to start so I can begin taking the BCP for my FET cycle, and it annoys me that things are being delayed. I was going to book a vacation on a beach somewhere for the week after my transfer and now I might have to change my week. AF why are you messing with me???

deborah, I think it is like the coordination of care fee at least from the description of it.  We only pay it once for our IVF cycle.

Congrats on taking the next step lilac!

toothfairy - Good luck at your u/s tomorrow. Keep us posted!

AFM - AF showed up today so I called the clinic expecting to be told to start Marvelon and call them back on my next CD1, but there was a change of plans. I'm starting all my meds right away for a transfer in mid-January. So exciting! It also means I can still book my vacation in early February. All's well that ends well.

Hi ladies! Happy holidays to everyone!

Deborah: I'm not sure if I said it already but congratulations!!

Toothfairy: I only know from my one cycle but number and size of follicles can change quickly and they don't always see all that is there. W thought we were getting 8 and ended up with 14. Do you know when er is?

Lilac: I did not have to pay a coordination fee of any sort but my ivf cycle was mostly covered by insurance so they may hide those fees somewhere in there.

Sourie: so glad to hear that you get to move forward sooner than you hoped. Fingers and everything else crossed for you!

Afm: I am 9 weeks today, we saw the heartbeat last week and everything is looking great, due date aug 3!! I am exhausted and constantly nauseous:) so, I guess that I can be moved to graduates, please!

I had 11 follicles over 10 at todays check, the largest was 17.6 so I go back tomorrow and expect to trigger that night, with retrieval on Tuesday. 11 isn't a great response but my AMH is on the low side so I'm praying for quality over quantity. Estrogen was 1605, LH was 3.54, lining was 11mm.

Toothfairy: For a low AMH, 11 follicles sounds great to me! And you may end up getting more than that at retreival. I hope you get lots of healthy embies to work with!
