I lost out on the ivf study - updated!!

I was a perfect candidate except one little thing ... I needed to give cd3 blood work on the cycle ~before~ IVF. I was already on birth control pills by the time they got me on the initial list for the study.

My nurse just called me and apologized all over herself. She was so sorry for not catching this one provision when first signing me up. She didn't do anything wrong as I was already past the cd3 blood work possibility when we found out about the study.

Bummer. That's $1,000 I'm out. But, all in all, I'm still better off that a lot of women, so I have to keep that in mind. I'm only paying $2,400 for IVF now. Sure, it was only going to be $1,400, but still, I have to be thankful for what I ~do~ have and not worry about what I don't have.

$1,000 sure would have been nice though.

Update: My nurse called me back 30 minutes after I posted this and she told me there is another study she thinks I'd be perfect for. It's actually the study I thought we were talking about in the first place, but apparently there are a few studies going on. I have an appointment on Monday at 930am to talk to the fellowship doc who does nothing but studies. So I'm tentatively back on!
