I went on-line this evening to read up on my local news as well as the evening news on CNN. Well, I saw something on CNN tonight that made me think. Yep, can you imagine that it made me think? Well, let me just say that it got my wheels turning, not in a good or bad way, but it just got my wheels turning. Anyway, I came across a video on CNN that had to do with infertility. Well, I am like a magnet and whenever I see the word INFERTILITY then I automatically check it out. I like to stay updated on the "goings on" with infertility. Well, I checked out the video and it was all about couples that have gone overseas to have IVF done in order to conceive a child. I thought to myself "Why in the world would you go overseas to have that done when you can just have it done so close to home". Well, after watching the video, it seems as though couples are going on vacations to get pregnant through IVF. They have found that if they go to the Czech Republic then they find that the expense in having IVF is cut in half, actually more then half. I know that our 1 and only IVF procedure was over $12,000 and if you want to go to the Czech Republic then you are looking at spending (GET THIS) $3,316 and that includes your fertility drugs. I about flipped my lid. I couldn't believe how cheap it was. I couldn't believe that the cost of $3,316 was including "the complete ivf treatment". You should definitely check out this site. The site is called IVF Vacation. I read up on it a little bit and I guess I am teeter tottering on whether or not it would ever be something I would do. I guess if it came right down to it, that it would be something I would do. I can't imagine my life without Cameron. He is the brightest star in my sky and he is my whole world. I just love him to pieces and I also know that if given that chance to go over to the Czech Republic in order to make it all happen again and give me Cameron...... heck yeah, I would do it. In a quick second !! I guess I just hate that people have to go overseas in order to make this happen (ya know?) It is a shame that the expenses here in the US have to be so freaking high. Why does having a baby have to be so difficult? Why can't we have the same costs that the Czech Republic has in order to help make the dreams of lots of men and women out there have a baby? It shouldn't be that difficult to have a baby. You shouldn't have to travel eons of miles in order to make your dreams come true of having a baby, but some people do and have and their dreams did come true. Actually there is a couple that I was reading about on this site that lives here in Ohio. They live in Cleveland, Ohio, but just to know that there is a couple close to me that went overseas in order to get pregnant is amazing. They welcomed their twins into the world on October 21st. I don't know.... at first when I started reading about it, I was kinda hesitant, but when you put yourself in the shoes of someone going through infertility then you would probably do just about anything in order to make your dreams of becoming a parent come true. I definitely like to keep money in the good ole USA, especially since everyone here in the US is struggling and the last thing we need to do is take our money and spend it in the Czech Republic, but if it were me and I had the money and I didn't have my baby yet then you can bet your bottom dollar that I would be doing LOTS O' RESEARCH on that place and checking out the availabilities in order to make my dreams come true. Heck, you could have IVF done a couple times over there for the price of one over here in the states. Just like I mentioned in the beginning of my post..... Definitely gets ya thinking - huh?
