IVF again - questions

Girls, DH and I have hard choices to make.

We went through 2 cycles in 2008 and the last cycle resulted in a perfect baby girl (now 4 months).

The March of Dimes recommends that you wait like 18 months before trying again, because there is higher risk of premature babies with pregancies that are close together.

We are doing a FET on Friday (our boys will be 7 months soon). This is NOT recommended, our clinics bare minimum is 6 months PP and 3 regular menses after discontinuing nursing. They really recommend at LEAST a year, but agreed to let us proceed since it's a FET and due to DH's age (he's 51).
Can you get more swimmers naturally or insurance will cover another retrieval? Our insurance won't pay the bill for storage but will pay for another TESE, but can't think of a man that wants to do that again just to save a few bucks.
I wouldn't have done another fresh cycle this early, but that's just me. Unless you truly can't wait, I'd say pay the bill and wait until your daughter is at least a year.

I think y'all brought up a few good points - I didn't think "they" recommend waiting 18 months, but wasn't sure if it was a year, so many periods, or what.
