I'm in Illinois--the rules here are similar to California, I think, if I remember correctly. In our case (BCBSIL) I told them what we were up to and they required three dr-supervised IUI attempts...

I think Sapling's advice is solid, especially if you are already living together after such a relatively short time. It's not fair to any of you to have you be living together already--too soon for...

Redrock-he's so cute! Teething is starting here, too--DS1 is a total drooler. DD never was, so it's weird to be thinking about bibs and where we can get more of them, since we really only have a...

We used Northwest and had a pretty good experience. One vial had low counts--their guarantee is really only for more than 9million motile, not 10, as stated (because it's 10, plus or minus ten...
