Since I am passing time waiting for the actual “fun” part of my FET cycle to start, I figured I would share 2 quick PSAs with you!
1. Don’t be afraid to check and double check your clinic’s bills and insurance coverage/payment. I realize not every insurance company covers infertility stuff (in fact most don’t) BUT that doesn’t mean that they can’t/won’t cover doctor’s appointments like the consultation or testing result appointments. I just got our estimate for our FET ($2k). That included all of my appointments and saline sonogram before we even get started. I looked at our EOB and insurance covered 2 non-testing appointments at 100% but I had already paid the $40 co-pay. I spoke with the financial person at the clinic and she said they will have that $80 and apply it to what we owe. It may not be a lot, but it’s something.
2. Not long ago the EWG released a report on BPA free canned goods. We don’t use a lot of canned stuff, but it was still a good FYI. Especially when you read how BPA can affect your endocrine system (hello, thyroid issues.) After having Harper, I am definitely more aware of healthy foods and chemicals/processed things. Now, don’t get me wrong. I can’t afford to feed her a 100% organic grass-fed diet all of the time. And eating out would be close to impossible, but I can at least control some things. (Who doesn’t like control in the IF world?). Along with that, I was recently introduced to a skin care/household line that features natural (no chemical) line of products. I am talking sunscreen and bug spray and even dish liquid. More things I can control! And if I can limit the amount of crap H eats and wears, than I feel like I am doing what I can. Check out the workshop on Wednesday night at 8pm- https://www.facebook.com/events/1441621416146047/ or you can take a look directly at the products here and enter party number 74830 at check out.
In other FET news, one week down of BCP and another 2 to go.
