i have to say, i read many of your blogs about the sacrifices and time you must take to save up to pay for a shot at IVF. i can't imagine having to do that. i hope all of your states follow in the footsteps of massachusetts and start requiring fertility benefits from your health insurance.

we finally heard back from the insurance coordinator! we have been approved for 2 IVF cycles. HOORAY! we set up our 2 hour pre op appointment for May 4th. We will meet with the RE for a hour or so to go over our protocol and all that and then we will meet with the nurse for an hour to learn how to mix and inject all the medications. i am relieved that we are covered and excited to start a new cycle that has a better chance of being successful. even though, at the same time i am terrified. of the shots, of the side effects, of the retrieval, of the heartache if it doesn't work. but i am not focusing on that right now. i am thankful for this chance and hopeful it will work and i can spend some months being a regular ol' pregnant lady and forget about being an infertile for a while.
