  1. Thanks for linking up on my blog. I have kept a running total (not including all the home tests and ovulation kits from when we were trying on our own). It's at a mind-blowing, gut-wrenching total of over $45,000 and we're still trying. I get a bit discouraged when I look at it and add it up every month, but I do think it's important to put this kind of information out there in order to educate people and advocate. Praying and hoping that you get nowhere near that total! :)

    1. Hi Lisa,

      I'm so happy I discovered your blog! It's helping me prepare for the reality of IVF. You are so brave for sharing your story! When we first started on this journey, I was always searching for how much IVF would cost. It wasn't easy to find actual people who would talk about it. Thanks for sharing your numbers! I'm keeping you in my prayers!
