UPDATE: Officially BFN. I could tell by her voice before she even said it, calling me "sweetie" and all. I feel even worse than ordinarily getting a BFN at home because she sounded so sorry for me. It feels more pathetic someone telling you. You'd think I'd stop getting upset by now. Especially since there was no real hope of this working. I think we need to do IVF, or stop this altogether. I just can't do this every month.
I just came home from my doctors office where they did a blood pregnancy test-for 30$ copay! Seriously! FRER's are a toatal bargain compared to that.
I took Femara and did a monitored cycle this month. Had a BFN a couple days ago at home, and am definitely not feeling it, so expecting a negative blood test. Everything was perfect during each ultrasound/bloodwork, too. Maybe this is what I need to finally get the reality that my tubes won't let this happen.
Each time I went in for bloodwork or ultrasound this month-30$ copay! I am just thinking I should nix the whole monitored cycle idea since the doctor has given me no hope that it will work, and it's probably throwing $$$$ down the drain for nothing. Throw in prescriptions, OPK's, HPT's and (silly me) acupuncture, and still no baby, but more $$$$ spent.
I haven't always been thinking of this in a practical manner. I just was willing to do it to get a baby. But after all this time, and no baby, sometimes it just doesn't seem worth it anymore to spend the money. The RE office has said IVF is covered by insurance, but I'm sure there are all kinds of hidden costs/copays, etc and no guarantee it will work either.
Maybe I should look at it this way......my body has supplied me with free birth control! If only that was what I wanted!
