Last night I started spotting and today- Cycle Day 40- my period started. If you will recall I needed to complete the SIS test prior to having insurance authorization for our IVF. I figured the earliest we would be starting would be January then- to my surprise this little tango with strep throat has actually speed things up somewhat-
My IVF RN called today and started off by scheduling my SIS AND my Trial Transfer for Monday December 16. Saaaay what? I wasn't expecting trial transfer talk until the end of December or early January.
Then she said we need to both prophylactically be on antibiotics at the same time before our IVF cycle. Welp thanks to my friend strep throat I am already on antibiotics so she said perfect and called in Rob's script.
Then she said- "How do you feel about starting after we get insurance auth.. say before January!?"
Stunned silence. Of course we would love to. We would have loved to have been pregnant saaaaay three years ago last month so lets get this show on the road! Also once we hit January we start 2014's deductible and while I can not even complain about that because our insurance is a Godsend and we would not even be here without it- I am nothing if not a thrifty woman who has no problem saving a few thousand dollars to put towards something better than a deductible- like say a new baby...
So she called in my birth control script too. I will start that Thursday night. After the SIS and trial and transfer- and fingers crossed we run into no issues there on any front- we will get our protocol for our IVF cycle.
So here we go. Tonight we sit down with Rob's parents and explain that we are undergoing IVF (THIS MONTH!!!!!!) and ask for their support… and I am suppose to hold it completely together and not have a melt down or jump out of my skin..
In case you couldn't tell I am jumping out of my skin already.. please God.. please make IVF be the last stop on this journey… please help us to fill this nursery . and our arms.. and our parents arms.. and most of all my heart. A piece of it has been missing and I would so desperately like it back. I know all things are possible through you and so I trust in that… please..
