That's the loan amount we are about to take out for our THIRD IVF. It covers 1 round of IVF and 1 FET. We contemplated doing the $33,500 refund option where you'd get 3 IVFs and 3 FETs and are guaranteed a baby or most of your money back, however Mike and I realized that if we had any more than 2 frozen embryos with each IVF we'd have to pay 2 to 3k on top of that to transfer each batch of 2 over the 2 covered in the first FET following each IVF. So in that scenario, we'd actually be penalized if we were blessed with lots of frosties. So, we decided we are just going to gamble and do one IVF cycle at a time and pray an embryo from the first cycle works.

- After an 8 year battle with infertility and countless struggles, our family is finally complete. This blog chronicles the journey it took for us to start and build the family we always wanted. Background on the blog (started in 2012, just days before I found out the embryo transfer for our son worked).... I decided to start a blog after realizing I have only been able to make it through my TWW's (two week waits) with the help of Google and with the openness of other women suffering from infertility sharing their own stories and giving others hope. I have time and time again found my exact symptoms on other women's blogs and felt an overwhelming sense of calmness they provided me. I thought it was time to pay it forward and hopefully provide this same thing to other women on their own journeys.
