The surgery needs to be postponed, as we did not get our insurance figured out. On the one hand, it's a relief because there was already a lot going on this weekend, and that would have made it a bit stressful. On the other hand, however, I am disappointed and frustrated. Once again, it feels like something is so close, then it just gets taken away. As much as I'm trying not to make this procedure the "fix-it" in my mind, I can't help but hope that this may be it. (Oh, another good thing is the policy we had applied for didn't cover much of outpatient surgery, so we're looking to make sure that's covered on what we apply for now.)

This whole insurance thing has also brought out another difficult situation. Pretty much, our choice is to have maternity covered and nothing else, or everything else covered and maternity not covered at all. I guess I understand that from the provider's perspective, but I feel like women diagnosed with infertility shouldn't have to make that choice! It feels like a choice between hope and despair!

Our choice, by the way, is to have everything else covered, but not maternity. It just makes more sense financially for us. But it's painful to know that this is still the logical decision.

  1. When you say that maternity is not covered, does that mean that your check-ups and delivery will not be covered?
