Good News and Bad News

Well, I finally heard back from the doc (of course I had to call cause they would rather make us wait weeks on end) and we got good news and bad news. The bad news was that no one picked us off the donor list. My nurse said that she and the other donor program staff were shocked, but people sometimes make wierd choices. She told me a story of a couple who were dealing with MFI and they brought in the husbands GRANDFATHER to donate sperm (how odd). So, now I feel like = the loser that can't even get picked to donate my eggs. I am trying not to focus on that though.

The good news is that since we were on the list twice we are entitled to 50% off of our IVF coss. We didn't know that they offered this, I think they keep it hush-hush. It is a generous program that was started by Dr. Check to help people along. So instead of $5500 for the process we will pay something like $2250. We will have to pay for meds, ICSI (which is pretty pricey), Assisted Hatching, anesthesia and pretesting, so it will be a lot more than we thought. I guess we'll just have to beg, borrow and steal. I am not sure how in the hell we are going to afford it, but we we don't have a lot of choices left. We might actually have to resort to borrowing money from some friends and/or family. That part sucks. With the donor program we were so glad to be able to pay for this on our own.

The good part is that we will keep all of our embryos, so we can freeze any that are left and use them for later FET's, if we need to.

I am waiting to hear back about how quickly we can move forward.

You are not a loser! It's not like you've sat on the list for months at a time and NEVER got picked. But I'm sure it's had not to think that way.

Goodluck trying to come up with the cash. Wish that I was fabulously rich so that I could just give you the money!

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
