Thanks again everyone!

Well it is time to get things rolling. First things first, paying our FED taxes ($2200!! YIKES!) Then getting our last tests done in 2 weeks. Once all is good there we can start figuring out when it can happen because we still have to come up with around $5000 to get this done. My old RE clinic said they won't do the saline u/s or mock for me, just monitor during my FET. :roll: I thought that was odd and even the clinic in NJ thought is was odd as well seeing I've been a patient there for over 2 yrs! I guess when it comes down to it, they're NOT really there to help you if you're not having your treatment there. Sad thing is, my RE personally said after my last failed IVF and I told him about donor embryos that they could take care of me if I had to go to another state for this. Yeah right! So with that said, I will now be having to travel 3+ hours to my 3 day b/w then go back 4-5 days later for my saline u/s and maybe have to go back again for my mock if they don't do it that day as well. Not sure how I will do all this being so far from the clinic. :dunno: :( But I'm not going to worry myself sick over this till I know more and maybe they make things a bit more convenient for out of state patients. Needless to say, this is ALL out of pocket, so this is why I'm budgeting around $5000. It's $3300 for the FET. I was thinking about calling my OB and seeing if they do a saline u/s? I mean I've had polyps before, so maybe I could have it done there to check for that and not put it under 'infertility'?? Just a thought so my insurance would cover it.

Lorrie - I am so glad things have finally started moving for you! That's weird that your old RE won't do the saline u/s or mock transfer. My RE is a 3 1/2 hr drive each way and it sucks making that drive since it takes a whole day to drive for a 15 minute appt! But I love my RE and its totally worth it. I always end up enjoying my day...I've gone on a lot of the appt by myself and it gives me time to think...which could be a bad thing but I also always stop at a different place to eat and even do some window shopping...You RE should do the saline u/s and mock transfer at the same time...I had mine done at the same appt...they should cram as much in to one appt as possible since you are travelling...my RE has been great about keeping me from traveling as much as possible! I'm just so excited you are getting started!!!!!

I hope everyone is doing well!!!

AFM - I'm 6 wks today!!!! I have another u/s on Tuesday and we should see 2 hbs!!! I'm so nervous and anxious.

Thanks Mommy. We won't be starting anytime soon I'm sure because we need some $$ saved up, but it's sooner than I was 4 months ago! :wink:

I'm so excited to hear your update on Tuesday!!!! :jump:

Well DH came home with a nice check from a job he did today. Cks in the mail came as well so with that said I'm biting the bullet and paying the darn FED taxes right off!! I need closure with that so I can concentrate on saving $5000 for our FET!! I hate to send $2200 right now because techinically I have till April 15 to do so, but I need to get it out of the way. I don't want to think about it anymore and move on! They'll be more jobs to come in the next months, so here's to movin' on to saving for our future baby once again!!! :D

desperate - :shock: That is crazy!!!! What did you tell him?

I'm off to work this morning. Instead of working 4pm - 7pm as usual, today I have to go in 9am - 12pm for a program install at work. They want me there to make sure everything runs smooth. Funny how they cut my hours in 1/2 (40hrs a week to 20hrs a week) but still need me there when 'convenient' for them??? I hope to find another job I love, but for now it's better than not having one I guess. New budget plans for year 2012 start in October....lets see if they 're-evaluate' how much I'm needed there more than 20hrs a week. :roll: Yeah right....

How is everyone! Mostly knocked up or soon to be right!

AFM, went to the doc today. She measure my belly and seemed alarmed at how large i am so she rushed me for an u/s. Christians head is measuring 37 weeks, 4 days and overall is at 37 weeks. She thinks she will need to induce me at 39 weeks to avoid c-section. Heartbeat was 171 - i think b/c she was feeling real hard to find the baby's head and christian got real excited from that.

Here is any update pic of how huge i'm getting!
