Yesterday was one of those crushing days where you get more horrid news than you can really handle in one day. Some background: DH and I started TTC in early 2011. After trying for a year with no success, we discovered that I had a large fibroid (17cm...the size of a 20 week pregnancy) which needed to be removed and that he had low count/low motility. So I had to go on 6 months of Lupron, shrink the fibroid a little and then have it removed. We were then supposed to be able to do IUI and be good to go. On a follow-up visit, my OB/GYN recommended some blood tests and an HSG. Day 21 tests showed low progesterone b/c I didn't ovulate that month. Day 3 tests show high estradiol, FSH is normal though. The HSG showed a severely anteverted (tipped forward) uterus and one blocked fallopian tube, with the other one looking more like a crazy straw than a fallopian tube. I am heartbroken. We don't have the money for IVF and it's not covered by our insurance. I'm 38. I have wanted to be a Mom my whole life, and I thought I was being smart by waiting until I could actually afford to support my children. I have a good job and so does my husband, but we really don't have any savings to speak of. I know that people finance IVF, but I'm reluctant to add to our debt, as we are both still paying off college and grad school expenses in addition to our mortgage and vehicle. Thanks for listening. This sucks.
