Next Week's Grocery Budget/Fertility
I've also been working really hard at moving any extra money over into savings so that we can build our Baby Step 1 $1000 Emergency Fund. We are about half way there!
We also went to a fertility specialist this past Monday, and we feel like we have hope and a plan now. I have been on clomid for the last several months, but this month we are going to bump my clomid up a bit and do artificial insemination. The plan is to do this for 3 months (@ $600/month) and if it doesn't work during that time, move on to something else. The doctor also put me on Metformin, which is a diabetic drug but is also used to treat women with Polycycstic Ovarian Syndrome (I am not officially diagnosed with PCOS). It can help with weight loss so hopefully I can see some results. I have gained over 50 pounds since our ruptured ectopic pregnancy in May 2011.
