IVF #6

IVF Number 6 is ongoing right now.  This 6th IVF is weighing pretty heavily on my mind. When I started doing retrievals in 2011,  I certainly didn’t think I would have endure this many retrievals.

I feel like my life has been frozen.   I’m tired of it.  I should have a baby.  Yet all I have is significantly less cash.

I embarked on this infertility process at the age of 35.  I am going to be 39 in March.  When is it time to call it quits?

I am not sure what our next steps are.     During the summer of 2013, my husband’s employer informed us they were no longer going to offer health insurance.   However, at the 11th hour they came back and offered what my RE refers to as “the Cadilac of insurance plans for infertility.”   With this extremely good coverage available to us the logical part of my brain is telling me we should continue on with back to back egg retrievals.

I acknowledge that I am very lucky to have wonderful insurance coverage, but like I said above, I embarked on this infertility process at the age of 35.  I am going to be 39 in March. When is it time to call it quits?
