I am making my way over from ttcam and the iui boards.
Welcome, Andi! I recognize your name from TTCAM.
My work suggested I file FMLA recently and I did. I plan to take the week of retrieval off as I see patients and it was very difficult with my first IVF to say "I'll be gone one of these days and we won't know for sure until 2 days before". Good luck with IVF! I know how hard it is with muliple losses to be optimistic, but it works for many women...hopefully we will both be next!
Welcome Andi! It sounds like your journey has been long and it's so exciting that your IVF will be coming up in just a few months =) My only advice is to spend the next couple months taking care of yourself - eat well, exercise and have fun time with friends. Clomid was very hard on me mentally so this med free time might be very good for you emotionally and your IVF will be here before you know it. When I was going through IVF I told my boss I was having some medical procedures that required blood draws every other day for a two week period but that after that I would be back to my normal schedule. He was a-ok with that. I think when employers don't know there's an end to the tardiness that's when problems happen. I never looked into FMLA because I thought you had to be out of work for two weeks before FMLA kicked in...maybe I'm wrong about that though.
