YES!!!!!!!!

 I got a call from Braverman's office today...They ARE "in network" and it will only be a 50 buck copay to have a visit!! yay! I am still waiting to hear back about the lab they use for the testing, reprosourse, and if  they are also in net work. The lady I spoke to today, said she was almost positive, but wanted to re check and confirm...I hope to get confirmation tomorrow...

This is a HUGE step for me...I really never wanted to have to go down this road, but it seems like it it the last resort, and the DR seems confident he can diagnose me. The biggest challenge will  be getting some of the med's covered and possibly some of the testes. But I am praying it is minimal out of pocket....I really want to get some answers...

I do also have some good news regarding my regular RE's plan to treat me should Braverman not work out for whatever reason. (ie. insurance not covering the IVIg infusions which are 3000 a pop, and need to be done every few weeks). My RE said he would let me cycle with intralipids, and lovenox, baby asprin ( which  I am on anyway) and dexamethasone ( a drug similar to prednisone) along with progesterone support. so that is good as well...I know I said I was done with meds, but if my immune system is off, I need to get things sorted out. I will also do the gluten/dairy/sugar free diet while TTC/ and in early pregnancy. I am going to start on some of the supplements that Braverman suggests as well, to boost the body naturally along with whatever they decide to give me after I am diagnosed. The RE also said he only sees the need for me to abstain for one more cycle- and then we are clear to TTC again. He asked I take extra folic acid and calcium.

I also started a new cycle today...Which was TOTALLY unexpected! Not only did I ovulate uber early this month, AF came early as well! I was only 8 dpo today, and that made this last cycle only 22 days. I know  it is only because of the craziness due to the ectopic, but still! What a mess! But, I was glad I got to start a new, and will call in to the RE tomorrow to schedule my HSG, to see what my tubes are looking like in there before heading off to Bravermans's and getting tested...I'd like to know what we are working with in there... In light of the recent ectopics, and the RE agrees. So, that is where we are at...Really, really praying that this new turn of events gets us a bit closer to our take home baby!! I so desperately want to end this journey...It has been so long, and so hard....
