Just a little update, my dh and I had all our blood work done all his came back normal but I wasn't so lucky. My prolactin was high but it is now normal thanks to being on bromocriptine for a month. My thyroid is still elevated (3.90) even though I was on some medication to lower it so starting from today I have to start my second month on Eutirox, my blood count was a little on the low side and I was on iron and folic acid since November, that has now been resolved.

My in-laws kept their work and gave us just over half of the money we needed for ivf, we took a small loan to finance the second half. By the end of this month we should have our check ready for the ivf clinic, it feels so good! As soon as af shows up (around the 24th) I'll start my BCPs and after that we'll get this show on the road, my cycle officially will start the first week in March. Tomorrow we are going to book our hotels and buy our plane tickets to Barbados! I'm always curious about how much ivf and meds etc cost so I'm going to post a copy if my quote, please tell if it similiar to prices in US especially the meds since I buy them from my clinic. I have a revised quote with a TESE procedure on it just incase at a cost of $500.US

Quantity Item Description Unit Price US $

Hi Amanda!

So excited for you to get rolling on your IVF cycle  =)  March will be here before you know it.  Sorry you've been struggling with your blood work but it sounds like you're responding well the the meds.  Here's a list of what things cost at my clinic, http://www.conceptionsrepro.com/ivf-program/IVF-Costs.aspx.  It's just crazy how much this crap costs.  Happy your inlaws were able to help out!

Wishing you tons of luck!!!  Please keep us posted =)
