So when I was in Sunrise back in April I was in your neck of the woods. Wish I would have known. Maybe we could have met up. There's always next time.

Melissa, I have no medical advice, just wanted to offer hugs, like Shannon and Kristen, as you are going through this. I'm praying that the end result will be a little baby (or 2) in your arms.

Perhaps you could talk to Veronica about he IUIs, since that's what they did for both pregnancies?

Pretty close! Sunrise is about 30-45 minutes south of here. I don't make it to Tampa Bay often, but Orlando is on our radar.

We are at Disney at least once a month. Maybe we can meet up there one day.

I haven't finished reading all the responses, but wanted to answer this.

Yes! My girlfriend went through IVF (ICSI) because her husband had severe issues with his sperm. She had boy/girl twins from the first round.

ETA: Now I've read the entire thread. I had IUI before I got pregnant with Graham and it only cost me $150 for the actual injection of the sperm. I had 80% coverage for the clomid and the Sperm Analysis and "washing" was covered. I guess it was because I didn't pay for anything. But then, I'm in Canada.

If it is a timing issue, you should check the price of IUI. If it's as cheap as mine was you might want to start there.

Good luck! I'm glad Dave finally came around!

I went to talk to Dave about it the other night and he said that he was in a bad mood and didn't want to. So now I am just waiting.....always waiting. I wanted to talk to him before making the appointment so I could coordinate it with his day off.
