So I have been pre-approved for my new patient appt tomorrow and the diagnostic u/s and b/w if she decides to do that tomorrow. I am also preauthorized for one natural cycle of monitoring which can include 2 ultrasounds and 2 seperate bloodworks. All of these things will cost us $30 every time I step foot in the office, but I guess that's pretty good coverage.

As for after that one natural cycle, well we'll have to talk about it when it gets here. They will only cover more monitoring if I'm doing meds like clomid or follistim. The good thing is that the follistim would be free through the insurance pharmacy but it would still cost the $30 copay every time I go in there. Plus, DH and I agreed that I wouldn't do meds this time, but maybe I can convince him to try as long as I'm monitored and we know for sure I'm only releasing one egg...

UGH! Even still, I feel like I've got a deadline and it's ONE CYCLE!

Kate,


Seeing how you responded to Clomid alone, injectables will almost guarantee you at least two eggs (probably much more) so I don't think

**pg mentioned**

That's a great idea! I actually ovulated at least 3 eggs on the Clomid since my pregnancy started as triplets. You're right though. I was completely unmonitored that cycle. The gyn gave me the Clomid and sent me on my way. I could have easily ovulated more than 3. I would rather get the script for the Clomid and not take it than risk having to pay for all the monitoring and having the cycle cancelled for too many follies. Thanks for the tip. I'll have to ask her tomorrow if the next cycle doesn't work. I will probably ask for provera too just to start with a truly clean cycle since my light flow has stopped for the last couple hours :-p I just need a REAL AF to start with.
