Last night J and I finally got our taxes filed. I had all my infertility receipts in hand. They photo copied them, calculated the percentage and well, nothing. Even though we were well above the 7.5% or whatever it was we were not above the dollar amount. So no savings there.
Still we are getting a refund. All of which is now ear marked for the donor egg cycle when he gets back home. I'm thinking that I should be able to save up enough of his measly pay to help with the rest of the money I need towards the donor egg cycle.
Its something. But with budget cuts, even though J will be in a combat zone, he won't be getting combat pay. Nope. Our soldiers are again getting the royal treatment minus the vaseline.
As for pay raise this year I think it was noted that they would be getting a whopping 0.5% pay raise which amounts to about maybe another tax bracket so he'll never see it.
I'm not cranky or anything.
Pregnancy or PMS symptoms:
In a few more days I can test. In a few more days I can call my RE doctor and plead for a CD21 progesterone test. Like "Another Dreamer" said I could have a good embryo but a poorly working corpus luteum and that could mess it all up. Probably what happened to my very first pregnancy too.
