DH's job and embryo transfer update

Well it's official DH just called me a few hours ago and he was laid off.I have been asked by a few people if we will press on with our transfer that is due to be march and the answer is "yes".I know it may seem like odd timing to some but I have been waiting to try IVF for 10 years and here it is.We have more reasons and they are as follows: we have a lot of money already paid into this and it is nonrefundable (more to pay but more in than out),I am not getting any younger (just turned 32) and 34 seems to be the big marker for this before a decrease in success rates,and most of all we are just ready to add to our family this has been something we have been excited about ever since we got the call on December 29th that they had embryos for us. DH just lights up when he talks about it.Which is a huge contrast from the day when they gave us his SA results in the RE office and they were very grim and as soon as the lady walked out he broke down.He never cries but I could see he was holding it back and that it was coming but none the less it surprised me that he felt as deep as I did.And at that moment I fell in love with him all over again.So this has brought us hope where there wasn't any and boy do I love to see that adorable man smile! We got all of our paperwork notarized a few days ago so that is set.(required by the office) I also picked up my estrace,antibiotics, xanax,medrol and prometrium from the pharmacy.I wanted to run the ones through that are covered like the antibiotics,xanax, estrace ,medrol etc since they are not considered infertility before our insurance is canceled on Monday.I still need a few other meds for it but I think we will definately have to shop around for them.I am thinking it will be one of the mail order places through the office, freedom is one of them I think.We continue to pray to God every day asking that he show us the way through this time of need.I know there are others of you that are also struggling with job loss and I ask that God bless you all.

So sorry to hear about the job loss, but it makes TOTAL sense to me to stick with the plan. You're this far along, and there's no turning back now. We would do the same exact thing!

Thinking of you - by the way, I've had very good luck with Freedom. Their customer service has been really good for me.
