Ivf for Baby Phipps

Brandon and I were married September 2013. We were best friends and dated a little over two years before. Both of us coming from previously failed marriages I had three beautiful children but he had none. We knew that we would never be able to have children together as I had previously had surgery to prevent further pregnancies. But as we moved forward in our new life, got married and bought our home together our desire to have a child together was too much. We consulted with a fertility specialist only to learn it would never be as easy as one surgery to reverse my tubal. That was the least of our problems. There were multiple problems both of us faced and our only choice would be to save and pay for IVF. We saved and we borrowed and borrowed and had just enough for one try. And we moved forward and paid our fees. Ordered my medications and a little over $8500 later we began. We started off with set backs at our very first visit but luckily we're able to continue. But only six days into my daily injections we were stopped dead in our tracks and our first cycle was cancelled because my $2600+  worth of meds did nothing for me. We are now patiently waiting for our doctors next moves which we already know includes possibly double the meds. We had just enough for one round of meds. Now we are faced with maybe double the cost of the first round plus hundreds of dollars in monitoring visits. You go into something like this saying we will give it just this one try and if it doesn't work we will be ok and know it just wasn't meant to be but it's not that easy. We just want our one chance. Thanks for reading about our journey! We hope to one day share wonderful news. Please know any funds will be used only for our IVF and any unused portions will be donated to another couple in need.
