Please give me your opinions girls :( Please bear with me as I explain my concerns.

Assuming we don’t see anything tomorrow (and I don’t think we will) I need to decide whether to scrap this cycle or keep trying.

Medically speaking, the RE feels like we will get here this month and does not think we should bail on this cycle. But he is only speaking from a medical standpoint. Like I said in my previous post, he is not considering that I am out of pocket and how much each additional few days costs me. I believe my follicles will get there eventually, I’m just scared of how much it will cost me to get there.

I had enough money for two cycles. I have gone through probably half of that on this cycle already (over $1,000 and that’s not including what they billed to ins). I feel like if I bail now, all of that was for nothing. Not to mention all of the time I’ve spent going to and from the RE (40 miles one way every 3 days). So I basically wasted all this money and I am reluctant to waste anymore and I’m tempted to bail.

BUT, if I bail then I DEFINITELY wasted the money where if I keep pushing, I may spend more money but if the RE is right, I will end up where I want to be.

So it’s like a double edged sword. If I stop now, I will have wasted the $1,000.00 I’ve spent to this point. If I keep going, I risk spending $1,000.00 more dollars only to end up no where. It’s like being last in a race at the half way point and deciding to quit. If I stop running now, all the time I spent running before this was for nothing but hey, at least I can stop running and rest. If I keep running, it will be torture on

Chelle here's what I think....I know how I am and no matter how low on hope I am I still don't give up until AF shows. However if you truly do not have the money to pay for it then I think I would stop and start saving =/ I really am hoping this doesn't matter and tomorrow you have some ginormous follies...

Oh I have the money, I just don't know if I'd be flushing it down the toilet continuing with this cycle. Can't help but wonder if I would be better off using it for next cycle. I hope you're right and that we see some progress tomorrow but I know if we don't, that I am going to have a decision to make and so I thought I would get to thinking about what I am going to do.

I keep thinking this: What if you give up on this cycle and the next cycle turns out the same way? KWIM?

Becky, you're so right. Just when I thought I had considered everything. If that is the case, then I will be KICKING myself next month about having to spend this kind of money all over again just to get to where I am right now. I would wish so much that I had just continued this cycle. Oh pooh :( Woe is me...

IMO I would keep going. I mean, you already spent the money, you might as well continue. You would feel so terrible just thinking of wasting so much money on nothing. I am thinking the diluted meds made a difference and you will see big improvement tomorrow! I just can't see wasting $1000+. Just can't do it. There still is a chance. Maybe your body just needs a little more time to make sure everything is in place so you can carry that baby for 9 months!

You're right. If you quit now then you're definitely out $1,000. Finish the cycle. Its a HUGE bummer that you'll only be able to afford one try instead of two. But its going to be one cycle either way you go.
