    Well we're back to considering IVF again. I had asked about it a couple weeks ago and scheduled a consultation with our RE. A IVF consultant from the office called me and gave me the pricing and we decided we'd try IUI a little longer and cancel the consultation meeting with my RE. Well, after thinking about it some more I really think we need to check into this and gather more info... so I rescheduled my consultation. I just have this gut feeling that I need to look into this. Each round takes 2 months since I have to sit a month out after each IUI. We know its expensive but I keep thinking in the long run it might be cheaper. Hopefully we will have extra to freeze so when we go back for more children later the hard part is already done.
    I scheduled a consult for next week. That same day the office is holding a once a month IVF meeting for interested couples so we will be attending that as well and getting all the info we can. We're thinking now that we'll try IUI one more time. If it doesn't work move onto IVF. Its a lot to take in for me and I have a lot of thoughts and emotions but I really think this is something we need to do. DH said he's willing to do whatever it takes and whatever I feel I need to do.
    Have any of you considered IVF or have any info? This is kind of scary for me and I'm already feeling a bit overwhelmed and we're not even started. I guess I just never thought we'd get to this point.

    I think it is good you went ahead and rescheduled the consultation. You might hear something, that can help you make an easier decision whichever direction you choose. It doesn't hurt to hear and gather the information. I hope you come away with lots of useful information to help make your decision. Hugs coming your way. I know all this ttc stuff we go through, is the most stressful thing I've ever encountered.
