OK so I think we found our IVF doctor. I am 95% positive we are using Doctor John Nels Anderson in Soldontna ALASKA!!! With meds this man charges under $5,000!!!!!!! That's right!!! $5,000!!!! I know, I know it seems to good to be true but its not. He is the real deal. He's is not the right man for every one's situation but in my case he hopefully will be. So it looks like we may be traveling 4,500 miles to make babies in Alaska. Tons more to come on Dr. Anderson but I will wait until I receive all my paperwork before I go on and on and on. (Thanks for the info Anutie M.!!!!!!!)
A sweet new little friend of mine told me about a couple other great clinic offering good pricing (one in New York and one in New Jersey). I have learned I do NOT need to do IVF in Louisiana. Many woman travel for treatment. That makes me very happy because Louisiana clinics are so expensive.
This blog was created to share our journey to parenthood. The past year has brought us much heartache. We have had three tubal pregnacies. One of those pregancies resulting in emergency sugery to remove my right fallopian tube. Then Jason and I were told in May of 2010 that the only way we would be able to have biological children is with in vitro fertilization (IVF). So here starts the process. There is so much to learn and it all seems so overwhelming. IVF will cost us at least $15,000 for one round. It is our hope that we will only need one round of IVF. Our time is truly ticking quickly for two reasons, MONEY and MY AGE. While I am still "young" to the real world, I am not so young to the IVF world. I become "high risk" at 35 (in one year). Not much time to save money or sit back and relax. We will place our trust in the hands of Dr. Lu at the Fertility Institute and pray Dr. Lu and his team will be able to make our dearm come true. ________________________ August 16, 2010 TIME OUT ________________________ January 2011 Game on Researching doctors.
