Just wanted to give you all a quick update....
My appointment on Monday showed some good growth of follicles, and I was told to do two more days of shots. I go again tomorrow, and hopefully the follicles will be the right size to trigger ovulation! I'll let you know tomorrow after the appointment!
I do want to share how much I see God's hand in this cycle...doing these shots is expensive, and our insurance doesn't cover any of the medication. I'm thankful that we have not had to do IVF, which is much more than this, but to us $1000-1200 is a lot of money! Especially at the moment, since my husband works in the mortgage/banking industry! When I ordered my medication for my last cycle (that resulted in Jonathan), it was my third time ordering medication. The pharmacy I ordered from gave you FREE medication on your third order, so I got two boxes of free shots! I didn't end up using them, so I had them to use on this cycle! I was praying that they would be enough to get us through this cycle, but the nurse on Monday said I would need more. So as I was asking her how much more I needed to order, she asked if my insurance covered anything. When I said no, she left the room and came back with a box of medication--just enough to get me through this cycle (and about $400 worth of medication)! She said someone had donated them, and with the bad economy and the Christmas season, she knew money could be tight and wanted me to take it! WOW!!! So God amazingly provided this cycle---we only had to pay $40 to buy the shot that triggers ovulation!
And I was worried that we wouldn't be able to afford this---God is so good and He provides!
