Taking the Plunge

I have news, not big news, but news all the same!

DH and I have decided to take the reproductive plunge, and invest some of our hard earned money into seeing an RE sans infertility coverage.  The plan was to wait till after the big move out East and the new insurance, but I think my latest emotional break down triggered a need to take more drastic measures.  I did some quick research (there wasn't much to go on), narrowed down my options, checked on some pricing, and voila - we have an appointment for next week, Thursday afternoon!  I know it is risky getting my hopes up, but I just can't help it.  I keep thinking that if I can just get the insurance to cover a few more diagnostic tests, and then pay out of pocket for the doctor consults (at $425 a pop!), maybe we can get some answers and even an idea of what our treatment options will be once we have insurance.

Also, a special shout out to the lovely Lisa B over at  The Pursuit of Pregnancy for her fantastic egg retrieval results!  We are all rooting for you!


  1. I just did the same thing! Finally called over to the local RE and made an appointment for beginning of Feb.! I had had enough of waiting and doing things that were not working. We are going to get more help, insurance or not. My consult is going to be about that much too. :(

  2. I'm in the same spot. Despite the expenses, I think the piece of mind from knowing that you're doing everything you can is priceless. I wish infertility coverage was mandated more under law, it doesn't seem fair at all.

  3. Yeah!! I'm totally psyched for you! Woot! Thanks so much for rooting for me sweetie! :-)

  4. That is great you got an appointment so soon! Good luck, I hope you are able to get some answers!
