Being In Debt Vs. Wanting A Baby

Oh my! I don't know which I would consider the biggest struggle of my life. I know how difficult being in debt is and now I am just starting the IVF journey.

As I am getting started with IVF I am seeing a lot of similarities between these two struggles. I wonder if my struggle with debt was preparing me for this one. While I was in debt I was anxious, emotional, uncertain, had to be patient, work hard, and seek emotional support. I am using all of these skills now during this IVF process. However, this is pulling at my heart strings a lot more than $26,000 worth of debt. Money is money! A life is a life.

Do you ever feel like your struggles prepare you for something bigger in life? Is your debt shaping you in ways you never imagined?

Best wishes,

Janie

IVF & Finances

So, I am going to continue to actively maintain this blog but I may not be posting as much. Due to learning that I will need to do IVF to get pregnant. I am now entering into a new chapter in my life. On June 3, 2010 I learned of my new chapter in my life and have decided to write about it here.

How much do you think this is going to cost? For one cycle, it can be between $10,000 and $20,000. This is just for one cycle and it normally takes a couple 1 to 4 cycles to get pregnant now. Or at least that is what the doctor told us on June 3rd.

I am sure I will find plenty of articles about couples who have financed this process on their credit cards. I will keep you posted.

Best wishes,

Janie
