I think the financial side of going to the RE has hit me today. I'm doing the potential math over and over and I'm not going to lie, it scares the crap out of me. I think the biggest thing weighing on me is how long or what if the BFP never happens and I've spent all this money. I know everyone goes through this though. And I can't get referred by my insurance company because of my status so all of this will be out of pocket. Yikes! Just the initial testing alone has me nervous. The only positive thing is I'll probably have to put off all the blood tests until late July because of where I'll be at in my cycle. On CD 3 I'll be out of town so no testing for me the next cycle. And I don't know when they do an HSG so I might be out of town for that too. It'll give me a little time to recover and pay for everything as I go which is my number 1 goal. So, looking ahead at everything, I may not actually be able to do another cycle till August. This sucks because I want so bad just to have my BFP already but at the same time it'll give me recovery time throughout payments. Plus, look at how many ultrasounds they do throughout a cycle, that can't be cheap! Sorry, had to vent my worry real quick!
So I had a scary realization today! I have a trip scheduled with work for training on the East Coast in July and now I'm terrified it'll be during O time. AF should be here soon but I always have long LP's ( 15 - 16 in long when your waiting for your next cycle) so hopefully it'll be shorter this month. I think I'll leave on the 11th of July and if I O later than I have been then I'm screwed. Plus, what if I'm so busy I can't get an appt leading up to this. Ugh, looks like July may be out as well!
