I went to see RE today. He honestly said he does not know why I am not pregnant, he said I should be, but sometimes it just doesn't work and there is nothing to explain it. He suspects it was just one of those cases. He does want to evaluate my uterus though, just to rule it out. He said that will be an in office biopsy to look for inflammation. I am going back tomorrow for u/s and bw, and if those numbers look ok I will start bcp's. He said I will be on them for a few weeks, then a few weeks of lupron, and then some estradiol pills for a couple weeks, and then the frozen transfer. He said i will basically not be able to transfer for 8-10 weeks. We have 4 frosties, so the plan is to thaw 2 and transfer 2, but if for some reason one doesn't make the thaw, then we would thaw all four and transfer 3. I also asked about a discount for the FET, and that was a no go, but at least we have over a month to figure out the money part of it.
I am frustrated I have to wait that long, but it is all part of the process. I guess depending on how I respond to everything, I should be doing the FET in early to mid july. The money is difficult but we will figure it all out. I honestly feel this is the only thing worth going into debt for, I just hope we end up with another child and not just a whole pile of bills.
I did find out something interesting though. Our insurance coverage has run out, but I asked what if I get a job and have a different insurance companies. They said because of hippa laws the new company is not allowed to ask for previous records and therefore would pay for 2 more times. They also said that as a teacher, most of the school districts around here offer teachers lifetime unlimited infertility benefits, instead of the max of 2 cycles. So if these FET's don't work, that is huge incentive for me to go back to work.
Thanks again for all your support, I am still finding it hard to cope, but I know it will get easier, and I am just focused on what comes next now, I just hate the waiting game again.
