Welcome back to my life...

Birth control. I've missed you so much I dreaded on the day you will make an appearance into my life again. Having that week off of birth control was heaven. Now I have been instructed to start them up again and my calendar is in the works. Crossing my fingers they only have me on these shenanigans for 2 weeks this time around. It's only day 2 and my stomach is already hating them. I finally got to see the lovely bill for my hysteroscopy and was impressed. Weird since my insurance didn't pay 100% of the cost since I had a deductible. My insurance got billed for the physician, facility, & anesthesia. I had paid the facility and physician fee on the day before my surgery like they had instructed me to. I was told anesthesia was going to bill me 2 weeks later. I paid a total of $1,564 for facility and physician so I was holding my breath on the anesthesia bill. As I was opening the claim I saw they covered 100% of the anesthesia cost. (Phew!

Good news is that my deductible is done with at this point. I reached out to my nurse today to see of they can call my insurance on med coverage bc when I call I have no idea on what meds I would be taking since I never received a calendar at my IVF consultation due to my unexpected surgery to remove my polyps. She said she will have some answers for me tomorrow and assured me they will go with the preferred pharmacy for my insurance to get the most coverage if I have any. In case I don't a dear friend offered her left over IVF meds if I were to use any that she used for her protocol. She's such a sweetheart. 

I'm starting to develop a bittersweet feeling. The fear of this all is accumulating  inside of my emotions, the fear of this not working. The fear that J's concentration levels continue to decrease. I don't know what I would do if they ever told me J's swimmers were...poof! The only major change is that he rides his motorcycle to work now. I need to research if that affects his swimmers. Well a little more waiting. 

To be continued....

I will leave u with a pic of my precious puppy that I got for my bday.

  1. i hate dealing with insurance and coverage, what a pain! just adds more stress to an already stressful situation, but thank god they covered the anesthesiologist for you!

    cute pup!! :)

  2. I certainly hope you don't have to be on birth control too long. Those side effects sound horrible. I know what you mean about being afraid it won't work. After all the years, after all the cycles, how can it actually work just like that? I am not pregnant yet but have experienced the same fear. One hurdle I overcame was knowing that I could actually be pregnant, and I was for a few days. Next time we'll get it to stick. :) JoJo, one day you are going to hear a high HCG number from your nurse or see two pink lines or "Pregnant" on an HPT. It can happen. It will happen. I know it's hard to believe, but IVF can work, and it'll work for you.

  3. BCP sucks. Sorry you have to take them. Cute pup!

  4. What a cute pup! What did you name him?

    Good luck on your upcoming cycle, I will be hoping and praying for you!

  5. Your puppy is beautiful! Reminds me of my dog when she was a baby. Is it a pit bull mix? What's her/his name?

    BCP's are the worst. :( but IVF is just around the corner. It will all be worth it soon.
