    Default We all need to hit the lottery

    We all just need to hit the lottery, big time, like a million each will do. Dealing with infertility is difficult as it is but everything costs so much money. IUI, Invitro, Egg Donor, natural & alternative methods and supplements, pee sticks, and so on. This getting preggos thing really adds up especially when it takes forever. The worse is that I've been researching adoption, both international & domestic, wow that costs are unreal. After today, I think our adoption option is out because of our payscale, etc. We won't be able to move houses and will wipe out all our savings just to adopt.



    So yeah, a million dollars will be super handy right now. Who's with me?

    LOL Liz.

    Ya know, now I get why celebrities can get babies super easy, because they're rich! Did the math for Russia adoption, costs around 38-50k!!! Three trips required there now. Domestic adoption, sliding scale, 15% of one's income (guestimate for us is 30k+). We cannot do adoption & move at the same time. I just feel like I'm watching some dreams die because we just don't have $50k.

    We started talking about IVf again but refuse to go back to the same clinic as before. The only other one near us has been closed and there is another near but all OOP (out of pocket).

    Yup, need to win that lottery....

    Its madness really.
    These children need good homes who can support them but if you find that sort of money it leaves you broke with no nest egg and you have to live by the skin of your teeth.
    Its almost like Adoption is for the rich only...when to be honest some are not good role models!!
    The world is a tad Fecked up eh?

    Liz, speaking of lotteries, I read about the UK lottery for Invitro! Some are raising a huge stink over it.

    P.S. I just read that China adoptions can take up to 4 years. WTH??? We're so not doing international adoption, gone are the days when it was easier.

    I'd like to win the lottery too! I don't even need a million, just a couple thousand will do us just good. Just enough for us to put some on the mortgage to pay it down faster and afew thousand to do afew rounds of IUI (or until we get a BFP).

    Here's the article about the lottery:

    I thought that under the NHS, you can get three rounds of IVF covered but maybe not.
    We could sure use that here.

    OMG!!!
    Thats disgusting!
    THe free 3 IVF treatments are dependant of postcode also.
    I am in the right postcode apparently and would get it..but many others wouldn't.
    Its already a lottery...we call it the postcode lottery..its the same with some cancer treatments here too..if you are in the right area....

    You're telling me! Even our 20% of all of these procedures is financially daunting. And I received 4 bills this week in the mail- 2 from my RE, 1 from the laparoscopy anesthesiologist, and 1 for bloodwork. This is crazy!! And I have another hysteroscopy coming.
