2/29/12 - Blood Work, Trial Transfer, Payment

This morning before work I had blood drawn and a "Trial Transfer". 

The Dr said he was sticking a cathiter in to measure the depth of my uterus so they know how far to go in when they transfer the embryo.  (I'm not great at the technical lingo).  It was a very uncomfortable experience.  Felt a lot of cramping.  I told the Dr I've been bleeding (lightly) since yesterday morning and he said that was normal. 

I paid my co-insurance today of $800 for IVF + $1,100 for ICSI (sperm count and quality is too good for ins to cover it) + $1,350 for embryo freezing = $3,250.

The IVF Coordinator called this afternoon and said the blood work "looked good" so I'm on track to start injections March 7th!  This is really happening!!! :)
