Yes thinking of you @faithhopellove ((hugs)) hope you are OK xo
No offense at all. The comment that annoyed me was "only rich people can afford ivf" I wish I hadn't of read that late at night as I had an awful sleep after that. I redrew on our home loan to get the 30k for my donor cycle and I only have enough left to do one FET cycle. It weights on my mind alot how much money/debt we have accrued from IVF and to still be childless. More so than anything I am holding a lot of hope on my first DET cycle transfer been successfully while knowing deep down it might not be 😕
It's a tough one isn't it?
But it raises an interesting point though. My FS was quite up-front about our poor chances of success, and yet even after my MC (and we're talking two or three days) I got a call from a FN asking what our plans were going forward. There was a definite push (well, by the Nurses anyway) to move onto the next cycle as soon as each cycle ended. That was always a concern for me.
At the end of the day, most of us will go to the ends of the Earth to have our babies. We will put up with anything - judgement, arrogant doctors, crippling medications, painful procedures. If there is money to be found, we'll scrape it up and send it in - anything for a chance.
That's how I have always felt, anyway. I told my DH I will never give up on this, and if we can't afford IVF I'll find another bl00dy way to do it. It would be easy for clinics to take advantage of women with the same sort of mentality as me.
Yes I feel much the same. I am very lucky too my parents paid for two of my stims and they give me money when I go to Brisbane ect to help pay for me travel ect. I don't ask them for or expect hand outs but they are well off and my poor mum wants a baby for me almost as much as I do. PS. you got my link to work I was worried I didn't post it right.
Sorry BIB, I know very little about these things. But I suspect I am soon to find out a whole lot more....
