The very day that I got the bad news from my RE about there not being any female embryos, I started looking for jobs that had health insurance with infertility coverage. There is a great website that has such information, so I started making a list of some possible job opportunities. Because I had a tubal after the birth of my last ds, I was technically considered infertile, so would be eligible for the IVF part. This was the only way that I could get dh to agree to trying this again, because we had already invested so much money into our first attempt. I returned all the baby girl clothes that I bought
. The week after the "no transfer" was probably the worst week of my life. My oldest ds was diagnosed with a huge tumor on his neck. I was so worried about him having cancer that I obviously didn't think about my failed PGD/IVF attempt. We found out that the tumor was benign
and I was so excited that he was going to be alright. I started going on job interviews and I was finally hired by Talbots. I was told that I would start out as a temporary, move up to a partime A status (where i'm at right now),and if I really did well, then I would get the partime B status that I so desperately wanted. I called the insurance company JUST to make sure that they did have IVF coverage, that my RE was in network, and that I would be eligible for coverage because of my tubal. I'm a sahm, so getting a partime job was very difficult for me. I have never worked so hard for anything in my life and I have to just keep reminding myself why i'm doing what i'm doing.
