well our consultation with the Family Beginnings clinic in Indiana is today at 2pm. I am really excited but really scared at the same time.

And frustrated. Can this crap get any worse? Sorry, I'm going to vent a little!
I got my medical records from the 2nd pg, and the dr's notes really make me look like an idiot bc I refused the methotrexate to end the pg, and it's not stated in a nice way.
You know, I didn't like that dr then, and I really don't now! All he had were the HCG #'s to go on so at best he thought the pg was non-viable; the #'s were taking longer to double but they were going up, and WAY WAY faster than the 1st pg. It was too early to see anything on the u/s when he did one at 5 weeks and he refused to do another one in a week or two to confirm. I was having all sorts of twinges, pulls, cramps in my uterus and NO pain like what I had with the 1st pg, so I was absolutely convinced it was an in-utero pg and if I was going to m/c I wanted it to happen naturally, not take meds to make it happen faster when there was no proof. I really didn't think it could be ectopic because I'd been told my right tube was perfect, clear and unblocked. Then later come to find out (from a post here) that studies have shown methotrexate to be pretty ineffective for ectopics that implanted where mine did, at the fimbral end, so I still think I was right not to take it bc it wouldn't have done any good, and my guess is the tube would have ruptured anyway while I was waiting for the meds to work. And if my tubes were truly unfunctioning, it wouldn't matter how many times I would get pg, it'd be the same thing over and over again so it's probably for the best that they are gone. Obviously I was wrong about it being ectopic but I think my reasons were valid!
So now I feel like I can't just hand over my records, I have to give a whole explanation and hope they understand my point of view instead of them thinking I'm an idiot.

From the financial aspect, I did ask my mom for a small loan (my dad left her a nice insurance policy when he died), and she didn't refuse, but all of a sudden she stopped being supportive of our decision to move forward with IVF. She was like a completely different person, and I haven't heard from her since. I mean, it would have been fine if she had refused but it really hurts she's no longer being supportive! I think I'll just look elsewhere for a loan, maybe it made her uncomfortable or something.

Oh yeah, and yesterday we found out our roof is leaking too. UGH!

I am so sorry that you are going through all of this. And doesn't it seem like when it rains it pours? (No pun intended I know that your roof is leaking--we just went through that. We managed to fix the leak but now have to find the money to fix all the crappy plaster and drywall in the ceilings and walls. Lovely.) I would just talk to the doctor at the clinic when you have your appointment and after he reviews the records so that you can clarify your position and that you didn't like your doctor (who sounds like a jerk by the way). I never actually got to see my records cause they were transferred from one doctor to the next and God only knows what they say. But the new RE didn't seem to worried about it. He was more impressed by the lack of testing and other things that I didn't have done before than anything in their that would be negative about my decisions.
Do you own your own home? Maybe a home equity loan to cover fixing the roof and a little extra to get you preggers!!!

Yes, that dr was a jerk!
I really like this RE though! He was glad to hear I didn't take the metho bc apparently there's theorys out there that it can cause problems for IVF down the road.
We own our home, but we have to much $$ against it to do a home equity loan. I know we can't refinance anyway for that reason.
