that cost is just as outrageous...I think they are going to do a couple of more tries with the IUI, and maybe start looking into adoption, as he is adopted so they are not against it.

adoption is awesome, so many kids need homes here in the u.s. and in other countries too. i know most people would rather have a baby of their blood, but adopting is not so bad. you know, if we don't get a girl on the second try i am going to try and convince DH that we should adopt a little girl.

Kim - my sister is in the same boat as your friend. She is 31 and has no children because of endometrisos. Her scare tissue actually caused a tubal pregancy in 1994 and she hasn't been pregnant since. I know it's hard....and IUI doesn't seem to work very often. Maybe she'll have a suprise out of the blue like we did with Brenden!

It would have been nice if I could have gotten cleaned out about 5 freakin' years ago!!! LOL Actually, I started taking meds for my PCOS a few years back and when my periods came back it never even dawned on me that I could get pregnant..... I know....I'm an idiot!

I've always heard that once you have one it can kick start everything.

No, I didn't conceive Aubrey thru IUI...it was a year long process of fertility treatments (we had tried for 2 years on our own) that ended in complete emotional exhaustion and having to deal with the fact that I was NOT going to conceive. We had signed our final home study for adoption thru our state CFS and 4 days later I found out I was pregnant.

Michelle, my SIL who is older also 37 at the time of conception conceived on her 1st cycle of injectibles with IUI, TWINS! But it seems I've heard more unsuccessful stories.

Feel free to ask anything or email me at ladydy68@sbcglobal.net

Diana - that is so awesome about your SIL!! Unfortunately I hear more unsuccessful IUI stories than positive one's too! I didn't do injectables with the IUI...just clomid which did nothing. At that time we didn't have a fertility benefit on our insurance so after going for months we were running out of cash. We called DH's HR rep and asked about fertility....she said we could petition the group and ask for the benefit, so we did. Thankfully it was written into the policy effective the next year and we were in the Reproductive Endo's office on Jan 6, 1999. We only had a $10k benefit so it was only one shot with IVF (we had to supply the other $15k). We were so thankful to be able to go into the very next cycle and Dawson was transferred into my cervix on May 24, 1999....he was 4 cells. It was an awesome experience but one I knew I would NEVER go thru again....even if we hit the lottery. It's amazing how things follow suite and you just never know what tomorrow will bring! Aubrey will treasure the memories you share with her when she is older! Dawson knows exactly how he came about, the story of his NICU stay, and not only how hard it was to get him but how hard it was to keep him here. He's a 9year old boy and he will tell you he is thankful we didn't stop trying! He just amazes me!

He'll cherish that story forever.

Now that I have one miracle, I would never go thru that process again just b/c it's so exhausting.
We didn't/don't have fertility benefits and that is why we never went any further than injectibles/IUI. Fortunately, DH's insurance did pay for the meds and the actual wash/IUI was only $350 each try.
