The question is where do I begin…
-I’m a 28 year old with Diabetes since the age of 15. I’m sure doing IVF is super rough for a normal person but for a diabetic it’s the worse. I’ve been prepping to get pregnant all year. Since January 2017 I had to start watching what I’m eating as far as carbs and calories. I also had to get my A1c levels to a 7 to even start any type of procedures. Fast forward July and August we did our first IUI’s which they failed. Between all this I’ve gained 10 pounds which isn’t good especially for a diabetic and tryin to get pregnant. So of course when you gain weight you have to adjust your medications by the doctor, Which I do and they start working perfect!!!
In October We decided to do IVF!!! Thankfully my insurance covers IVF so all I have to pay out of pocket was about $2,000 versus $14,000 that was quoted but that’s not including the medicine. My insurance covered most of the medicine but I still had to pay $850 for multiple medications that CVS Specialist (Home delivery) was sending me. I have one more medicine coming in and that was about $105. Talk about expensive but I’m sure other people has paid more so I’m super grateful!!
So the doctor gives you a schedule on how each day will go for the next 2 months (November and December).
My calendar goes like this:
On top of all this I have to make sure my sugar levels are on track, taking all medications on time for the IVF Cycle and my diabetes medications as well. So I got all but one medication for the IVF Cycle and man did I break down and cried.
This is what I got for medications so far. It got me a little depressed!!! But I know it will all be worth it at the end.
The only thing I’m experiencing are pinching/ stabbing on my left and right pelvic area after I started taking the birth control pills. I know it has something to do with that because I’m super uncomfortable 😞😞
Has anyone experience that while doing a cycle for IVF?
We will officially know if it worked on December 30th!!! 💙💗
