Friday I received a call from my IVF Dr in regards to his confrence that he was at for 1 wk in regards to my last IVF cycle to try and find out what he could do differently for me. Well, I was told that I am the 4th known case in the whole USA that has ever had this happen. (Losing almost all of my follicles before the IVF retrieval). And no I did not have a premature ovulation. Well here were my options 1)Go threw another cycle of IVF and they would double my stimulation meds and only give me 20 units of Hcg at the end instead of 20,000 and then I would have the ret. and they would freeze the ones that they would ret. and I would come back a few months later to do the transfer once my meds wore off and of course pay another $25K to have this done and still not knowing if this would work or 2)Use donor eggs. This is what my Dr is trying to encourage me to do because my chances of it working would be much higher than using my own. I then asked how much this would cost and he said we would pay the donor $4K and his facility $18K. So, we would then have $21K invested not including my meds and Dr appts. and still no definate positive. Well, my husband and I are not ready to go to that step. I believe that until I am told that I cannot have a child I am not willing to even consider this as an option. Well, we decided to try a couple more months of IUI and hoping a miracle will happen. And by the time we have done another 6 mths of that and if it doesn't work then hopefully we'll have majority of our other IVF paid for and try another round of IFV then. My Dr wasn't very considerate about this whole thing I mean he was really pushing for us to use donor eggs like it's nothing and that we will at least get preg. that way. I just don't know what else to do it just really sucks how much all of this has to cost. Like I told my husband I am more than willing to go threw all the shots and feel like crap all the time in order for all this to work, but it's all about the money and it really shouldn't have to be this way. It just blows my mind that insurance will not help pay for any of this... So, if you were in my shoes what would you decide to do??

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
