aaaaand it starts again

Except this time with a new twist. I am using follistim instead of clomid. I received my cartridges today and the obligatory chocolate (I love them for that). My insurance doesn't cover it even though it is their preferred med. Again, because I am using these medications with ART. So stupid. I am going to be fighting it and I have heard there is a good chance they will pay at least some of it. If they don't it will suck and I will change to a cheaper one if we have to do it again, but the Hubby keeps reminding me it's ok. We will get through this. It is more important we don't give up. I love that man.

I also miss him terribly. He is on another business trip. He left Monday morning at 4am and comes back tomorrow. Thank God it's not a long week, I don't think I could handle that right now. I am super emotional and lonely. I tried to make plans, but everyone was busy this week, so I spent Monday and today alone reading blogs, crocheting and watching Frasier (I finished Cheers). I ran a bunch of errands yesterday and did get together with my bestie for a bit to catch up, but knowing I was coming home to an empty house bummed me out.

I go tomorrow for my CD3 blood work and US. It feels kinda strange getting back to it. I can't believe this will be IUI #4. To tell you the truth I didn't think it would go this far. I honestly believed one the clomid IUIs would have worked. *sigh*

So it's almost 6 and I have to figure something out for dinner. I don't feel like cooking. Maybe I will throw some shoes on and go grab some fast food. Where should I go? Maybe I will get some ice cream too.

  1. I have high hopes for this iui. Having the husband out of town sucks, but I usually let myself get take-out that we don't normally get. If you are ever unsure of a fast food place, you should always go with chick-fil-a :)

    1. I love chick-fil-a, but the closest one is a half hour away. I ended up getting chicken at wendys. Thanks I have high hopes too.

  4. My Hubby is out of town on business too...confession: I've had pizza for dinner every night. Like really every night. I'm almost done with an XL. Yikes! Our cycles are so, so close! I'm CD5 on IUI #4. Lots and lots of luck to you!

  5. I'm crossing my fingers for this cycle. You deserve a bit of luck and I'm sending all the good vibes I can. :) When hubby is away for a few nights, I usually laze around at home and get sushi for supper. He hates it so that's when I treat myself.

    1. Thanks! Yea its about time I had some luck. I usually just eat whatever I can find and finish things off from the fridge and freezer. Every once in a while I will get something we don't normally get and treat myself.

  7. I am utterly shocked they send chocolate! That is simply amazing.

    I am glad to hear that you are getting right back at it. It is so important to just keep trying, it has to work eventually! :)

    I hate it when the dude leaves me for days on end. If I lived closer we could go for a coffee. ;)

    I will be thinking about you.

    1. I was shocked the first time I got my meds and there was chocolate. Such a sweet thing for them to do! Every pharmacy should do that! I wish we did live closer. I would love to hang with you. Thanks.

  11. Sorry to hear about the hormones. I'm not liking them at the moment either. Silly and stupid things!

    What did you decide for dinner? And good luck with this cycle!

    p.s. My husband and I met on a MUD called Midnight Sun. Very old school. Hahah

  16. I just wanted to come on (sorry I haven't been reading blogs for the last three weeks...) and say good luck with the new meds!!! :)
    I also feel you on the insurance front - I already know, going into anything medically assisted, that my usually awesome insurance won't pay for diddly squat, not even the meds. :(

    Anyways good luck!! :)
