I wanted to give a quick update on where I’m at right now.
There has been some movement from the insurance side. They said they have no record of a denial for IUI or IVF. I’m not sure what that has to do with anything, however luckily my financial coordinator had it on file. I sent it to HR. Insurance wanted Shady Grove Fertility Center’s number and contact so they can talk directly to them. I hope this means it won’t be much longer. This movement happened mid-last week – haven’t heard a peep since.
I spoke to my nurse and asked her if I should begin the pre-process portion where I take birth control pills for three weeks, just in case insurance comes through I’ll be ready. She agreed that it would be best so I’m about a week into the birth control.
I received my IVF protocol (basically my schedule). I had a bit of panic with a side of excitement. It was so strange to see the entire process on paper attached to dates. So tentatively the embryos will be transferred back inside either 4/14 or 4/16 – or somewhere around that date. Those dates could possibly change depending on how well they divide and grow. But regardless, it’s not that far away. Around that same time I’ll be replacing my chain link fence with a beautiful 6′ wooden fence. Not that far away at all.
Oh one last thing, Thursday morning I have my Mock Embryo transfer.
