how do you do your treatments and appointments with out losing your job?

We've decided I'm going to go to work (well, I decided, he agreed). But now we're wondering how people who are facing fertility treatments manage to do them and keep their job? We're looking at having a 90 minute to two hour drive each way to the fertility center if we choose Milwaukee... I just can't see how I'd manage to get enough time off to do a round of IVF (IUI could be done here locally).

Since we are at least a year away from considering IVF I'd hopefully have a year in on the job, but I'd rather not use any vacation time for treatments since I'd want to save it for real vacations or time off during pregnancy since I would like to work as long as possible. I do not need to bank it for maternity leave as I will not be going back after we have a baby.
