    Hey hun.

    DP is doing way better than I am!

    No signs of AF but acupuncturist says DP is close to ovulating, so probably 2-3 weeks away. Maybe a bit longer, but hopefully not. If AF does show in 3 weeks we will be looking at an end of June egg collection.

    Nice to see your name rainbowroad but I wish it was under better circumstances.
    I often think of you and your dp and wonder how you are going
    This journey is often so unfair!

    So unfair! Since the miscarriage, we have had ten people announce pregnancies! The universe sucks sometimes.

    It must be difficult @rainbow road. It might help once you guys have started the IVF process again. It won't take away from your angel bub but it might help.
    @almai it tends to vary but approx $7k for IVF and I think you get back about half back. The extra costs are tests that need to be done (which your DP may have already done) oh and the sperm!

    We are estimating our costs at about $15k each and as we will go through stim and epu at the same time it would really be $30k. That's taking into account sperm which we have no idea how much to buy?!

    Has anyone fallen pregnant the cycle straight after a chem? Our dr made me wait a cycle before trying after my chem (which then made ds) so I guess waiting was good but dp doesn't want to wait, she wants to start again next cycle but we wonder if pushing our dr to let us is worth it? Or is it better to wait? We are so impatient and this fleeting glimmer of a positive pregnancy has made us want it NOW even more. We've already had so many set backs this year.

    I don't know how people cope with trying for years. It must be soooo hard!

    I think it would fine to go straightaway @almai but all FS vary on their recommendations... I know how you feel about not wanting to wait.

    the waiting right now is killing us.

    Tortoise, absolutely right. Once we are TTC again it will be easier to deal with. Atm we are just counting what week we should be at which is depressing.

    Re sperm... gosh I have no idea. Maybe 2-3 vials each? Just in case? You probably won't need that much though if you're doing ivf as hopefully you'll get a haul of frosties too.
