Le lupron est arrivée, part 2

I arrived home yesterday to a giant FedEx box with my lupron refill. Phew. Thank the lawd and all that. Though why they had to put it in a giant box, I'm not sure, as a small box would have done the trick just as well.

Two estrogen patches at a time seem to be doing the trick as far as holding my lining together. Phew. Thank the lawd and all that. It's now down to barely spotting, so that's reassuring. It's still annoying that I have to wait, but oh well, there's nothing I can do about it. Hopefully the next lining check will show plushy triple-layered goodness, ready and waiting for that perfectly thawed embryo.

So, things seem to be finally settling down on the FET front. However, also waiting for me when I got home was a bill from my old insurance company for my HSG. Which they billed me because, well, my policy was cancelled back in September and I had the HSG on January 2nd. Not unreasonable on their part, I think. But here's the kicker - I paid in full for the HSG as a "self-pay" patient because I know my insurance (new, old or otherwise) wouldn't pay for it. The hospital must have dug out my old insurance information from when I had my laparoscopy in 2005 and billed the insurance company. On top of me paying in full and all the paperwork being marked as "self-pay". Arseholes. So now a fight will no doubt ensue.

WHAT??? That's insurance fraud!!! No fight necessary- just call the insurance commission. They don't take to kindly to that!

Hi Sarah! I just wanted to check in and say hi. My company had the nerve to block IVFC at work (gee, think they noticed how much time I spend on it??) so I can only post before/after work and usually I'm too lazy by the time I get home. Anyway, I wanted you to know I've been thinking of you and your FET. I'm also really intrigued by the "Big LV Clinic" study.

Anyway...hope you are well.
