A big thanks to AnnieP for suggesting we find out if local RE will do blood draws etc on weekends.
For Saturday appointments they will see us if they are coming in anyways but will not make special arrangements to come in just for us. We would need to call week of to see if they will be willing to see us on a Saturday. Jerks. I mean we're still paying them for the service. And they have made a crapload of money off us from our SEVEN IUI's.
So I worry this means we may still need a back-up in case we need blood draws and u/s's on weekends during the IVF cycle. And if we have to go someplace else as a back up, why see my out-of-network local RE who won't even see us on weekends?!?
I was warned that prepping for ER would become a full-time job. What I wasn't expecting was that IVF planning would become a part- to full-time job before the IVF cycle even started! We've spent so much time on the phone trying to find out why test results haven't been sent to CCRM, find someone to draw bloods, do u/s's, etc. It's been incredibly frustrating. My cognitive restructuring is that this will only last a few more months and hopefully all the hard work will pay out in the end...
