DH and I have completed all of our testing. We have been diagnosised with unexplained infertility. We were notified by my fertility OB/GYN that we may proceed forward with either medicated or unmedicated IUIs. DH and I have chosen to do medicated as our insurance does not cover the cost so we would like to start with the one that would give us a higher success rate. We go in tomorrow to sign our IUI consents. We are trying to decided when the best time would be to start our first IUI. I really want a baby and would really like to start this next cycle which would be April 1st however I want to be sure we take everything into consideration.
Considerations to start date of 1st IUI:
#1 My employer doesnt offer sick time or FMLA. I will have to save up my paid time off and can only carry 160 hours at any given time. DH gets 3-4 months off which is great EXCEPT he doesnt have to carry the baby/babies.
#2 We have a 16 days Disneyworld vacation planned November 6th-November 21st 2013.
#1 IUI could result in twins/multiples and if I end up on bed rest may not have enough time off even with 160 saved up (This is a concern regardless of what date we start). Also we have been informed that I will not qualify for state disability if put on bed rest b/c infertility is an existing medical problems and we knowing went and got pregnant (or so ive been told).
#2 I dont mind being pregnant while on vacation but I would be around 30 weeks if our first attempt was in April and I am concerned that if multiples I will be on bed rest when we are supposed to go on vacation (our honeymoon actually).
The date that seems to fit best for our first IUI is June 10th but that seems so far away and even then I would still be around 22 weeks preggo, again concerned if we end up with multiples. I think a singleton would be fine at 22 weeks but am I risking too much by going on at 22 weeks if I end up with twins/multiples?
Any opinions/advice is welcome. So anxious to get started but trying to play out every possible situation.
