My ob didn't even mention an IUI, I might bring it up to her. If the clomid doesn't do the trick, we are going to sort of stop TTC. We will still bd and stuff but no opks, temping, etc. I'll focus on losing weight and we might look into fostering a child. If we can't have kids of our own, we want to be able to help one that's been dealt a rotten hand.
There is a foster to adopt program around here that actually isn't very costly. I know the chances of us actually getting a baby though is slim and I am on with that. I am not quite giving up, I am definitely hoping these last 5 clomid cycles will get the job done, I am mainly looking at all my options now.
Nichole- we got preggo from 1% morph. There is a chance!!! I promise! I HIGHLY recommend the vitamin regimen my DH took (let me know if you need the list again). DH was on it for 3 months ( I know its a pain in the butt for DH but WORKED) and then boom.. preggo! The first SA he had 0% morph, then did vits for 3 months and went up to 1% morph and then we found out we were preggo days later. Some info about my RE... he charged me ONLY at our "specialist co-pay" for each visit. So we paid $50/visit. However if we did IUI/IVF then we would have to pay in full. The reason he could charge us the co-pay is because we came to him with pre-existing issues (my high prolactin)... so he saw us for that part (endocrinology) not as a fertility specialist. So there might be a way to swing the phrasing of why you are seeing the RE and might be able to see an RE as an endocrinologist not a fertility specialist. Hope this helps... keep up the positive thoughts!
Can I please get the list again? Thank you for your encouraging words DH wants to do all he can to try and get his morph up.
If you log into your kp.org account, go to "my coverage and costs" and then select "eligibility and benefits" on the left. You will get a list like this, which shows what your coverage is, and the costs/co-pay (ignore the awkward screen shot/crop..I had to hide confidential work crap) :
I had a little blob of ewcm. Opk is still totally negative. Hubby has an appointment with a gi dr in about 2 weeks. I hope he feels well enough to bd these next couple of nights. I hate even trying when he doesn't feel well most of the time. It makes me feel selfish.
