In tears.

Why is it that I get so god damned worked up whenever a roadblock comes my way?

Went we went to the doc last week, he gave us our whole plan (starting lupron on day 21, ER sometime week of July 9th, I thought), and said that Aaron needed to get his SA, and I needed to setup a 'pre-op' ivf appointment after I got AF. He was pretty 'breezy' about the whole thing - made no mention about the fact that I may not get approved for this month - it's been my feeling since we started on this IVF track that we wouldn't have problem getting approved, as the insurance was pretty much dictating that instead of doing more IUI's we absolutely need to move over to IVF because of the risks involved in IUI and ectopic pregnancies.

So, today I called my doc's office to set up the appointment. And asked that the nurse call me back - just to be sure I was scheduling it on the right CD (or if that even matters?) She calls me back, and says I shouldn't set up the pre IVF stuff until we get approved... and we can't get approved until Aaron's SA comes back. But when Aaron called to get an appointment for the SA, the docs office says that the earliest we can schedule is on 6/6. She transfers me to the insurance lady - who also says she can't guarantee that I will get approved in time - that it may take up to a month to get everything, and she can't even submit it until Aaron does the SA.

We have been told since the ectopic that we needed to do IVF. This was in DECEMBER OF LAST YEAR. NO ONE EVER TOLD US HE NEEDED THAT SA! Obviously, Aaron would have gone in and got the tests months ago if he needed to. I am so fed up and annoyed right now. It is sounding like we won't even get to start this cycle. It has honestly taken me a full 6 months to get ready to start all this freaking IVF crap - and now because of a damn test that no one told us about I'm going to have to wait one maybe two more months!?!!?!?!

I called Aaron in complete tears, and he is calling the nurse to try and get a better idea of it all. WTF!!!

Oh hon, I'm really sorry. That TOTALLY sucks...

Hoping that they can work it out for you so that the timing will be ok for this next cycle.

*HUG*

I'm so very sorry! I can't imagine how frustrated and angry you must be. The idea of losing the opportunity this cycle must be really hard to handle. Hange in there. I hope they can figure something out.

I'm so, so sorry! That is so frustrating. I really hope they can figure the insurance side out.

Thinking of you!

Cece,

I'm so sorry. I don't know why REs and their clinic can't ever seem to get their act together with insurance and timing. It's so unfair and it's you who has to pay the price of their incompetence! I hope that you'll be able to get things figured out in time.
