Dollars and Cents; A Big Price Difference From Last Time

This time around we aren't doing the guaranteed two embryos from the donor eggs cycle which cost us a whopping $18,799.95 before tax and extras like consult and sperm cyropreservation totally out of pocket and not including medications which are extra.  This time we chose to do the small set of donor eggs which will cost us an estimated $7,700.00 with no guaranteed embryos but with a back up of a donor embryo instead.

Yes that is an $11,000.00 difference.  I can count.

I'm much happier paying out less even if it still comes out of my own pocket.

Now I know with the previous donor egg cycle, this donor egg cycle and the IUI I did this year I should have a considerable amount to put on the taxes with the hopeful rebate coming my way this coming year. One thing to look forward to in my opinion is a rebate though it is no concession for a failed cycle in any way.

As for the weight I've gained....I'm already down one pound from yesterday.  So I am trying to get those 17 pounds back off.

  5. Wow, that is quite the difference. I still think it is horrible just how much they seem to get away with charging, but I am glad you are paying a lot less this time around.
