It is no secret that In Vitro Fertilization and all that it entails is a very expensive process. Our insurance does not cover fertility testing, treatments or medication so we are paying for everything completely out of pocket. NO WE ARE NOT RICH!
Hubby and I have sacrificed in many ways to get to this point in our journey. We have sold our camper (which we loved), sold our SUV (which I loved) and put family vacations on the back burner. Instead of putting money towards building our dream home we are putting that off for now and investing in a baby! I always refer back to Suze Orman's motto: "PEOPLE BEFORE THINGS" and I know that financially I am where I need to be.
I just have to say that God has been so good to us throughout this entire process. I found out yesterday that 70% of our medication would be paid for through an AWESOME program called Compassionate Care. They are sponsored by the maker of most fertility meds MDSerono. I found the information online through some of the fertility discussion boards and thought it would be a perfect for us. We met the requirements and are so overjoyed that were approved! Some of our financial burden has been lifted and I am so thankful that I called the number and filled out the app! I have God to thank for guiding me and always always taking care of us in so many ways! I am truly humbled! The Meds will be at my RE doctor's clinic tomorrow and they will overnight them to me Friday. Praise God!
