rio - i m so sorry hun , i m thinking of u sweetie , i hope u find ur peace but its nice u hear didnt lose ur hopes and want to try again , i would like say something i m from minnepolis and i came to chicago for my treatment ,i know its expensive but not more than our dreams right so if u spending like 10000 to 13000$ u have to pick right re right . i think in india they do it 3000$ to 4000$ try to look online it might helps .try to find out of county that might be cheaper.

lots of hugs on ur way

rio hunny... I'm so sorry to hear the news... You always think you're prepared, but then the news arrive and you still are in shock. I'm sending you a big hug and I wish I was there to do it in person. Take care of yourself, take the time necessary to recover from this... it's hard to have hopes and then have them taken away. In a way, though, better now than in a couple of weeks... :(

I'm sending you lots of warm thoughts...

Love,

Sophie

Pep- That is GREAT!!!!!!! Congratulations! I love hearing good news like that!

Lisa32 ?? - Do we have any updates? How are you?

Rio- I am so terribly sorry for your results. In regard to your question about prices, my first 2 IFV's were in the $11,000-12,500 range including ICSI, ALL out-Of-Pocket. This go round we went with Donor Eggs (I am 40) and "shared risk" for almost $20,000. I don't know where in CA you live, but I do know that there is a clinic in Las Vegas (of all places) that has really good success rates. If I can answer any other questions, just ask- and I will try to answer! it is such a difficult journey.

As for me, I have mixed emotions about my BETA coming up on Thursday. I am optimistic and scared at the same time Yikes!

Kitty- good luck with your ER
Best wishes to all! :)

Thank you girls!

Pep - great number!!! Congrats on your BFP! Twins? :) :)

bei - good luck tomorrow! Lots of great eggs!

bril - sending you tons of baby dust for Thursday! Our clinic is small but seems to have good statistics. They are not super expensive but to be honest with you we have seen some folks at our clinic that cannot possibly be paying what we are and in CA insurance does not cover IVF, so I am wondering if they have different rates for different people... I am not trying to be judgemental at all and everyone deserves a baby! But we deserve a financial break too!

PMA and Tammy - you guys are wonderful support, thank you so much for your kind words and comfort, you are truly sweethearts!

dys24 - wow - of course shared risk meant you got preggers! ;) Our first IVF was shared risk and of course we got preggers and lost the extra $$ but all for a good cause!!! Congrats on getting your AF!!!

Good evening ladies. I am back in the country and off work until June 7. WOO HOO!
Rio- I am so sorry for your loss honey. I cried this morning for you as I was getting ready for work. I'm glad you have been able to find the strength to keep trying. I will ask my ER about IVM clinics in CA tomorrow when I go in. However I have heard there are only like 10 in the country. Not sure if this is true or not? I know another is in the NY area.

Bei- Good luck on your ER tomorrow. I hope you get lots of great eggies!!!

Pep23- Congrats your your BFP. That's a very large number for beta 1 right? (Still trying to figure out all the numbers) Maybe it's twins???? :shock:

D.in.Italy- Wow...so you are going through with this in Italy. I love that country. Best food in the world!!! :) I hope you have a wonderful weekend that ends with a BFP!

purple- congrats on your 2nd beta. grow baby grow! :)

Kitty- you mentioned progesterone supps...OMG I guess I overlooked any comments on these darned things. I just started them for the first time 4 days ago. EWWWWWWW GROSS! I thought I magically peed my pants. I was freaking out. I definitely do not like these. However, as a very frequent traveler I do have to say that so far this seems easier to go through security with instead of shots.

Well ladies...I am heading to bed rather early. I have been awake and working since midnight EST. Still waiting on DH to log on the computer and chat. I'm trying to be very well rested for ET tomorrow night. I'll see you all in the morning!

I am going to do personals in a little while.

Just wanted to pass along that I had my ER today and it went well! I was so nervous but I guess I didn't need to be. They said they were going to give me a little medication to make me feel groggy but I was so tired from not sleeping the night before that I passed right out and had to stay a little longer in recovery just to wake up. oops!! :D They were able to get 7 eggs. My doctor was happy, he said he really didn't think he'd be able to get that many with all of the issues I had going in. They will call me tomorrow and let me know if I will have a 3dt or a 5dt. I'm hoping for a 5 day because I feel it might be more successful but I dont know!! EECCCKK
