Holy shit.

I am already so grateful for my girls, but now I am even more so. I just opened up my pay stub and there was a note about changes to our medical coverage. Infertility treatments are no longer covered.

I teared up when I read that because I was able to get pregnant and have twins just before they dropped it. I teared up because I am so thankful for them. But I also teared up because I know this means that so many other people will have to pay out of pocket for fertility treatments. And some just can't afford it.

Wow. That must be an overwhelming feeling. What timing.

It's ridiculous that these things are covered...I have a friend that is just starting to go through it and while the tests are covered, once they're labeled as infertile, nothing is covered...just so unfair.

I am lucky enough to be working for a company who pays for 3 cycles. I feel horrible for those who dont have it covered- but I always say, even if i had to put it on my credit card, I would. Buy now- pay baby later!
