wtf?! appt

*UPDATE* my beta today = 4.75 so that's super! it's "officially" negative but they want to see it @ 0 which i'm sure it'll be when they test me next friday. woo hoo!

so we had our follow up appt with the RE today. we still don't really know "what" happened last month, but it looks like the pregnancy ended up in the right tube (the one with a small opening) after the embryo floated around for awhile. all in all- that's over & done with.

moving on: after my next period (grrr) we are going to do a Hysteroscopy & an Endometrial Biopsy. this will allow them to look into my uterus to see if there is anything going on- also the biopsy testing (which takes about 2 weeks) will let us know if there are any issues with my endometrial tissues, or any infections going on. once we have those results back (depending on what they are) we will move forward with a fresh IVF#2 cycle at the end of Dec into Jan. the 2 remaining frozen embryos will stay put for now.

problems? with the recent merger at my company, there is a high chance that my insurance will be changing on Jan 1st & if it does, there will be no more IVF coverage. if that's the case then we're kind of in a bind. we really don't want to shell out thousands of dollars- but what choice do we have? i'm praying with everything in me that my company chooses to stay with our current insurance- PLEASE GOD! if they do, then i have no worries. if they don't, well then there's more stress to add to everything. blah. why can't this be easy?

anyway- so i'll know by the begining of November if there are going to be any changes- and if there are then my RE said we'll try & speed things along so that all my transferring & such happens BEFORE my new insurance takes over. i'm not allowed to get KU until Jan 3rd because of the Metho shot soooo- yeah. argh.

anyway- my RE really didn't want to put me through a LAP right now because he said that the 2 other tests should give us plenty of info. obviously if there are huge issues found with those tests then we will look at a LAP- but for now he doesn't feel that it's needed. so i'm going to trust him on that one.

so that's that. keep your fingers crossed that my insurance stays the same!!! please! because that would take a load off my mind! alrighty- i guess i should go work & such. thank God it's friday- seriously.
Pin It!

FINGERS CROSSED! If it doesn't work out, I'll let you steal my identity and use my insurance. MA guarantees IF treatments.

I hope that insurance stuff works out. Like you need another thing to deal with. Ugghh.

Have you thought about doing COBRA? If your company merges, you can still pay out of pocket for your previous insurance for up to 18 months. My DH"s company just got acquired and we were offered COBRA for the plan they gave up.

It would probably be ~$400 per month, but definitely cheaper than IVF and you could just keep it long enough to get a BFP.

Anyway, I hope they keep the coverage you have! But definitely think about that option...

I hope for the best for your next IVF. I had a EB-- don't want to scare you, but it was really painful. I also had a hysteroscopy and hysteroscopic surgery, which didn't hurt at all. Both were useful diagnosis. BTW-- not sure if they told you but the EB had to be done at a certain time in your cycle. Can't remember when, but I remember I had scheduling issues and it got delayed a month! So just stay on top of them.

Anyway, I'm rooting for you!!

Sasha & Mark said...

Hey-- I realized I didn't say much about the EB. The pain was pretty constant and intense for about 30 min, but it tapered off after that. I was fine to drive home after an hour, but still felt kind of sore until the next day. Good luck!!

I'm praying that your insurance doesn't change so you don't have to deal with any added pressures with all of that. I will keep praying for a successful IVF #2 for you too.
