$$ Show Me the Money $$

How in Gods name do people pay for IF treatments? Now that I am *a little bit* over the shock part of all of this- reality is setting in. How on earth can we afford IVF? Are we better off doing Shared Risk? So many more questions come up.

Here is a list of my financial gripes about this situation.
1. Insurance is a crock.
I have a 10 month waiting period on my insurance for Infertility coverage. So that means 10 months from my start date for any type of diagnostic testing. That puts me out till end of January. Which would be fine if we weren't dealing with JC's Low T issues. 10 month waiting period means no end in sight for JC's issues unless the new uro is a miracle worker. Even if he is- we can't afford to pay OOP for testing and drugs. Just not gonna happen. So we wait.

2. We are moving.
We're selling our house and moving into my 750 sq. ft. condo so we can save everything we possibly can to pay for IVF. It's going to be miserable, but in the end- hopefully will allow us to save enough to not have this put us in a huge financial pit. Moving sucks.

Now I just need the house to sell quickly. It goes on the market September 1!
