DAY 22: How has your financial situation affected your infertility journey?
It hasn’t affected it in reality, but it scares me to death! We’re having a hard enough time building our nest egg, that I wonder how we’re going afford IVF if we get to that point. Since I’m a planner, I already have us saving for it, just in case. I’m lucky in that our health insurance will pay 50% of infertility testing and treatments, but the other half scares the S out of me! We started out with so many plans…buy our much larger 2nd home to raise our family in within 5 years, travel and save for college educations. How are we supposed to do that if we end up doing 3 rounds of IVF? And what if we have to adopt after that?!? Insurance won’t pay a dime of that! But one step at time. First step, meet with new RE on Monday and decide if IUI in the Fall is the next step. Or maybe my first step should be to breathe?! 😉
I shared this picture on FB and now I’m sharing with you! I don’t know what I’m doing with it this week, but I’m going to visit RESOLVE’s website and explore. 🙂
