IVF consult

I had my IVF consult today. I thought this would be an easy post to write but I am having a hard time putting my feelings into words. I think it is because I am feeling so many conflicting emotions. I am nervous and scared and at the same time happy and hopeful. I am overwhelmed at the amount of information I received today. My doctor didn't really have any answers for me though as to why I am not ovulating so that was disappointing but she seems confident that IVF can work for us. The IVF nurse will be calling me this week to set up a schedule, I am planning for ER/ET mid March. They also have a financial person who calls your insurance company and finds out what will be covered and what won't to let you know how much it will cost. We have some coverage so that will be helpful since she said the average cost without any coverage at all is $12,000. I have lots to think about, I'll try to sort out some feelings and have a better post another day.


  1. Oh I'm feeling for you, you must be feeling so overwhelmed. Just have piece of mind that you are on the right track.

  2. Thinking of you as you sort through it all!

  3. 'System overload' seems to be a recurring situation for many of us dealing with infertility. I can't imagine the amount of information you received...take time to soak it all in. Thinking of you.
