I have a bunch of thoughts floating around in my head and I figured I should write them all out before I go to work so that I can concentrate on work 😉
I can’t believe I am in the 2ww again. I am going to try to stay busy and not over analyze everything, but knowing me that won’t happen lol. I get my progesterone suppositories delivered to work this morning. I start them tonight.
I woke up this morning with a sour stomach. I bet it has something to do with the tomato sauce I had on our bob.oli pizza I made for dinner last night. The acid tends to bother me. Hopefully the zan.tac will kick in soon.
I think I may tell my MIL some of our IF journey this weekend. I have thought about telling her before, but just never did. I know she is wondering if something is up since I didn’t go to the party last weekend and because when she called last night hubby told her I had fallen asleep on the couch at 8pm. I was tired! I didn’t sleep well the night before and I put in a lot of emotion and thought into my iui so that makes me tired as well. I think she will take it well. We will see how that goes and if I actually do it.
I got a letter in the mail last week from our insurance stating that they were not going to cover my fertility med’s if they were related to IUI’s or IVF or other ART stuff. Great. I had originally been getting my fertility drugs with just a copay so this really sucks. I called them up on monday and asked for clarification. They said that initially all claims for art drugs will be declined. However, if I want to oppose their claim I can write them a personal letter with as much detail as I can provide (letters from doctors, medical records, imaging etc) then they will decide on a person by person basis. That sounds like a lot of work and a pain in the ass. Husband looked at the other plans he has available since he is currently in open season and didn’t find anything better. If this cycle does not work I may end up doing IVF which I had really hoped I didn’t have to do. I figure that I will know if this cycle worked or not at the end of november. If that happens than I will just talk to my RE and get my drugs ordered before January when my insurance coverage for drugs goes bye bye. It really sucks that I have that added stress in the 2ww. It makes me feel like I need this cycle to work or we are going to have to pay even more money. Hubby says we aren’t covered for IVF so we would have had to pay a lot anyways so it’s just a bit more. Still stresses me out.
You guys eat a lot of healthy lunches! I wish I could eat more salads, but I limit them to one or two a week because of my IBS. I am going to the cafeteria today and getting my favorite – turkey burger with fries that I dip into honey mustard. I know not that healthy, but it’s good.
The other night on ama.zon I ordered some Bre.tt Mich.aels Tropa-rocka diet snap.ple tea. It was a limited release from the snap.ple he made on the show the appre.ntice. They listed the stores that it would be available in and I could never find it. I looked in every store I went into. Everyone online kept talking about how good it was so I finally bit the bullet and ordered some online. I look forward to trying it and seeing if it lives up to the hype.
I feel guilty because I have not been wearing my contacts for the last week or so. It’s just so much easier to wake up and throw my glasses on. It’s also been hard to make the time since the last week I was having to get up early every day for monitoring. I know I should be wearing them, but with the drops and everything, bleh. Maybe I’ll start wearing them again soon.
Also, thank you to BabyBaker for the blog award. I promise when I have more time tonight I will add it to this blog entry!
