IVF Approval = Weight Lifted!
Fri, 08-10-2012 - 7:18pm

So they finally got around to getting in the insurance paperwork today after I called yet again.  Believe it or not it got approved same day!  So we are on for IVF #1. 

The approval is good until November, so I'm going to talk to the RE this week and make sure this is a good cycle to try based on my recent hormone results.  I also had thyroid labs done on Monday and my endo increased the dose on my anti-thyroid med.  I also want an ultrasound before I stop BCPs to be sure my cysts are gone. I'm anxious to get started but want to make sure we have the best possible chance at the same time.

That's awesome!!!! So happy for you =) Hope the talk with your RE goes well. You are smart to make sure it's the best time....my guess is that with how much they can control with meds they will say you should run with the IVF cycle.
