Hello Everyone!!! My name is Melanie, i am 28, and live in California. We have been TTC for almost 5 years. We were told about a year ago that our best chances of gettting prego, would be through IVF. I have unexplained scare tissue in my tubes ( they say my tubes are open, just will be difficult to concieve). My hubby, some of his spermies are not formed correctly, so this leaves us with a 2% chance to concieve naturally.

So, after almost a year, we had come to the coclusion to wait on IVF, due to the expense. Then, low and behold when I called the nurse to let her know we were holdin off, she proceeded to tell me that gthey are doing iVF for $6000.00 dollars for a limited time.( normal cost $10,000.00) Wow!! So, I went home talked to my husband about it, and he said "What are we waiting for lets do it"!! Those words were music to my ears!!!

So, once I let the nurse know we wanted to go through with it, we wanted to do it asap! She made us realize, it would be more realistic, and easier on our budget if we wait a few months, so that way we could pay for all the meds over time. Then, this is so awesome, we ended up saving more than $400.00 on the meds!! One of their other patients had went through her cycle and didn't end up needing all the meds, so they sold them to us for less!!( sounds wierd, but its not)

Now we are on the books for the May cycle!!! WE are so excited, and extremely scared, well I am at least!!

Please feel free to share your story with me, i really could use some friendly advice and support!! Thanks for listening!!
