Well, it has been an eventful time since my last post about IVF. Since then I have started the birth control, received the Lupron, HCG and remaining Monopur, and have undergone a new sonohysterogram and bloodwork. We have been given the results of the testing and have been placed into a pricing tier. Unfortunately, the guaranteed birth option is more costly than we anticipated, with a cost of $18,500.
My husband sold his disaster preparedness website Survivehive.com, which allowed us to pay off some bills and stash some money for the procedure. He was also offered a higher paying job which begins on Feb 17th. In addition, we had several people from his blogging groups donate through GoFundMe. We feel very blessed to be placed into a better financial position to pay for this procedure this week. The remainder of the cost will come out of my savings so that we do not have to take out a medical loan.
The next round of medications begins on Sunday. Thank goodness my sister in law is willing to do my injections for me. I’m too chicken to do it myself!
I’m not even entirely sure I have captured everything correctly because there have been so many updates since my last post, but here is my best guess:
January- $4997.80 (up to Feb 4th)
Etsy Sales- $472.25
Other Craft Sales $585.79
Facebook Yard Sale Group- $56
Offline Donations- $0
We have another month of medications ahead of us. The doctors will do the egg retrieval around March 4th, embryo transfer around the 9th, and pregnancy test around the 17th. I bet this month will just fly by (I’m hoping at least).
My crafting motivation has slowed down quite a bit since returning from Illinois. The medication has wiped me out, along with house hunting, and other things. I plan on finishing part two of Mary’s Coin Quilt tutorial in the next week or two.
Until next time,
