Oops! I didn't mean that my insurance will cover the IUI's...in fact I doubt anything will be covered! I just don't have a health plan right now and even though we have the money to pay out of pocket for a few months of trying, I think it's important to have health insurance for when I DO become pregnant! Does that make sense?
I haven't had health insurance for the past 4 years, and made a point to start a new job where I would get those benefits because I knew we wanted to move forward with our baby making plans! I recently donated my eggs and found that experience highly positive, and the compensation I recieved for that is what we are using as our baby fund. I figured I tried to help a couple in need achieve their dreams, and that in a sense they paid it forward to help me.
When we started looking at all the info we knew it was expensive, but now that we are putting all the numbers together its a real eye-opener. Now that I feel so ready to get going, I'm so worried that in the end it will be money that shuts the door for us! I think we can do about 4-5 months of trying...and I think those are good odds?? At least, I'm really hoping!
My DP wants to carry a child as well, and if I get pregnant quickly we'll keep the remaining money in the fund for her to try later. If not...well...I guess we'll just need to figure that out if it comes to that.
Thanks for the welcomes!! I'm glad to be here.
