Happy News!

I have happy news! We confirmed today that our first choice embryos (set of 4) have NO additional fees that we would be required to pay on transfer day! Each set of embryos have possible fees attached to them such as shipping (from the clinic where they were to conceived to the NEDC), possible storage, and/or STD testing on the genetic parents - all of these fees are paid by the adopting parents. Our embryos from our July transfer cost us a little over $300 in these fees.

However, if none of these babies survive the thaw and the embryologist has to thaw our "back-up" embryos, we would be required to pay close to $900. Given that 65% of blastocysts survive the thawing process and our first set has 4 blasts, Lord willing, we shouldn't have to thaw our "back-ups." Obviously, with funding the 1st and 2nd transfers (including medications, ultrasounds, and labwork) and purchasing our first house, this is needed news for our bank account. Praising God for His kindness in this and praying that our 1st choice babies will survive the thaw, transfer, and attach to my womb this time.

P.S. We should hopefully be closing on our new house sometime within the next 2 weeks - right around our embryo transfer. Busy, Busy!

Hi sweetie! THanks for the sweet comment. Our clinic said that it is the testing must be done at the time of sperm/egg retrieval and it wasn't done back then too much. We are calling the clinic where the embryos are and talk with their office on Monday. I am disappointed, but trust God's timing better than my pathetic selfish timetable! thank you for the encouragement!!((HUGS))

Great news. We have the same situation with our transfer next week too. Here's to hoping and praying that the first blastocysts survive thawing! I finally started my EA blog and would love to connect with others transferring at the same time as us. I will be praying that your 2nd go around is successful : )
