The Pre-Game Show*

All right, the day is here. Trial transfer, acupuncture and injections course. Oh, but let's not forget also the laying down of several THOUSANDS of dollars at the doctor's office!

We have decided that even though we have the cold hard cash to pay today (something I've been adamant about), I will be paying today with our credit card. Because the hubs and I are kinda obsessed with points. We use one and only 1 card - ever. With each purchase we earn M@rriott points. And this will be a heck of a lot of points.

Back when we were engaged/newly married, my mother always used to tease us that we'd have our first child using M@rriott points. I thought she'd be right in that we'd pay the hospital bill off using that card for the L&D. Little did I know that we'd be earning points simply by trying to conceive a child. Oh, the little ironies of the world.

*the title is in honor of the hubs' lovelovelove of football. and i think it might be a fitting theme given the nature of the next few weeks.


  1. Exciting!! I hope that everything goes well today, and you are well on your way to IVFing in a few weeks!

  2. We just paid on Friday of last week so we are very close to cycling together!! It's so exciting! Lot's of nerves and anxiety but so many possibilities!!!

  3. YAY!!!! I am so excited for you! I checked in today just to see if you had started your protocol yet. I am sending all sorts of prayers your way!

  4. Sometimes I wish that we had cards with points... but I agree with you about the cash... some of ours will end up being HSA reimbursements, but I really don't want to get into a hole. Yay! for getting things started.

  5. I do points too. Charge almost everything and pay it off the next month.
