We have done our research on what our insurance will cover. They cover practically nothing when it comes to the big stuff in infertility. My husband is adamant that we can't go into debt over this and we don't have thousands of dollars lying around for infertility treatments.
Our plan at this point is to get a plan! We're going to our first appointment ready to hear what the doctor has to say, to see what course of action he recommends. I'm hoping that I have an option or two still available to me that will be covered by insurance before we have to move towards the big stuff. If not, we'll be taking a break and saving our pennies. My husband has done the math and says we won't have to wait longer than a year, but even a day seems like an eternity to me at this point. We're already a year into trying to conceive our second child and I'm tried and weary.
I burst out into tears at really awkward places. The line at Starbucks or the middle of painting a background for our church's VBS just aren't places people expect some woman to start sobbing. I'm ready for the good news of a pregnancy to bring me back to my happy place. Of course, this may not be the plan for me. I know that a pregnancy would only be a temporary happiness, not a life long one. It's just hard. Once you start yearning for a baby, a pregnancy can't happen soon enough.
So I could use your (virtual) hugs and prayers this week!
