I am also a TESE success! * see siggy * I will be honest, It has been a long journey but every second has been more than worth it! In the end its a small price to pay for a huge miracle. I too was lucky enough to have insurance coverage. Take advantage and go get your baby:smileyhappy:

I just wanted to let you know that I am currently a positive TESE/MESA story. When I was doing it, I could hardly find anyone who had to deal with that little extra surprise. You are very blessed that your insurance covers almost everything. After $34,000, I am so happy to have my BFP, but wondering how I will save up for the baby

About me: Sheri 35, DH 42, happily married 16 years, 3 furbabies TTC#1 since forever, MFI (complications from Type 1 Diabetes) December, February IUIs cancelled. One thing after another. March IVF stopped for uterine polyps (my turn to have something

Welcome to the board!

It is completely normal to be scared and overwhelmed. Hearing that you have to do IVF to get pregnant isn't something that most people expect and it definitely takes some time to digest. The IVF process can be such a beast when you are looking at it head on. As it gets closer to time, things will start to come together in your mind and it makes a little more sense. I won't lie and tell you that anything about IVF is fun, but
