Hi.. New here and really nervous

Postby tinkerbellamom » Wed Apr 26, 2006 1:20 am

Hi. My name is Beth. I am 28 years old my dh is 35. We have 1 child and she is our 110% MIRACLE! We began trying on our honeymoon to get pregnant (Aug of 1997) and finally had her on Oct 30th 2001! So when we decided to try again we felt unsure and after a year of trying without sucess we went to a fertility specialist. I went first had all the blood work the HSG, my tubes were 98% blocked but she was able to unblock them right then. She felt sure that we would concieve within the next 2 cycles. Here we are 4 cycles later. Dh's SA was great so no problems there. His numbers are high 125 and motility was excelent so she is at a loss. So we weighed our options, Clomid w/o IUI, Clomid w/ IUI, and IVF.

We are incredibly blessed to have insurance coverage for 100% of all of the above so on the recomendation of our Fertility doc we have scheduled out first IVF. If at the end of the cycle I am in now I am not pregnant which at this point I am not expecting I will begin with the bc,shots and then our retrival is scheduled for one of 3 days June 22,23, or 24th with transfer 3 days following the retrival. I am really nervous, our insurance will cover 2 ivf's and 6 iui's so we have several chances but its still scary. I feel like its put up or shut up time.

Anyway I just wanted to say hi.

we have Atena. Its amazing. Even my doctor was shocked. We get all testing, meds covered 100%, $10K for IVF, 6 inseminations, 12 months of freezing and storage. All we pay is $15 copay each visit and we have to pay the anesthesia at the egg retrival because he doesn't accept insurance. I feel very very blessed.

Np thank you for responding in the first place. We really do feel blessed because without this insurance we would never be able to do IVF. We are so glad that dh has the job he has.
