Well after our last RE appointment and the feeling of hopelessness that came along with it, my hubby and I decided to sit down and have a full on discussion regarding our next move. Our questions included:

Should we consider IVF?
Should we get a second opinion?
Should we wait and see what that brings, or just give it a break?
Should we just give up?
Etc…

Of course there were a lot of deciding factors for us—including income, cost, extremeness, desire to have a child, and where we stand with us wanting this. We have decided that because it has been 3 years with no baby and one miscarriage, we do not want to wait any longer. We are going to do IVF, and we could possibly have our BFP sometime in August (here is praying to God that it happens). The package we are doing includes 2 tries—one with fresh embryos and one with frozen if the fresh cycle does not work. I think they will do 5 total from what she told us, so we could do 3 the first cycle and 2 the next or vice versa, depending on what we want and if it produces a pregnancy or not.

We also qualify for something called “Compassionate Care,” which covers all costs with the injectable medications. All pills are covered by insurance. So basically not that much out of pocket, because it is all covered by the package, which is good. The financing for the IVF also has great interest rates and terms, kind of like buying a car, which is even better because it is affordable for us this way.

Anyway, here is hoping to God this plan turns out and that we get our baby. I want this heaviness out of my heart and my baby in my arms. If all goes well from here, our only next problem will be how many embryos to transfer, which I can already say my husband does NOT want multiples and I would be happy with twins. Lol. So we will see.

Also, I wanted to thank everyone on here for being so supportive with me. I do not have any support from my family (except for my hubby), and it means so much to me. It is really nice to know that I am not the only one feeling this way at times (it helps me feel less crazy, lol)

I don't know why, but I feel so optimistic, and I NEVER feel that way! God I hope this is the right direction.
