Its been 9 years since I was on iVillage reading everyone's posts and thinking about IVF. I wish I could remember my old log in but it doesn't matter now. Here is the SHORT of my story. Back in 2003, after 5 years of trying to conceive naturaly I went to a specialist to find that both of my tubes were badly damaged due to endometriosis and could not be repaired, they were removed at that time and I began the IVF process immediately. I was 26 years old, I don't remember all of the meds or any of that, but I was sucessful and currently have 8 y/o twin boys. My husband and I have decided we would like to add just 1 more to the bunch. The difference now is that my job then covered 100% of the IVF and the meds, all I paid were copays.
Now we have been saving for 2 years to finally afford to do IVF, and quite honestly I have the worst anxiety every about this whole situation. I am usually the one encouraging everyone else, but this time I haven't told anyone, because I dont want to deal with explanations if there are any complications. Any positive advice is helpful. I will be doing my day 3 blood work tomorrow and I will also begin the bc's. I don't remember all of the short terms, so bear with me please.
Already my menstrual is acting weird. Usually it just comes on, light
