How Much Does This All Cost? Final IUI Numbers


The idea of financing the cost of a baby like a car payment was the reason we did not seek infertility treatments.  The rule was, either we afford to have the baby without a monthly payment or we sacrifice having the baby.  And that's why we tried naturally from 2009-2013.

In 2013 Daddy Bun's son graduated and in 2015 Daddy Bun's daughter graduated so they are both pretty much out of the house.  And before you start wondering if we want to start over, the answer is a resounding YES (Post on that HERE).  Together with strict budgeting, progressive payments on our mortgage, and a reduction in frivolous spending such as clothes, shoes, and accessories, we are in a place where we can afford to pursue that dream without going into debt.  I must thank Daddy Bun for that as he is the practical one when it comes to money.  I am the frivolous spender mentioned above.

I'm tracking how much Little Bun costs so I can remind the future child later why we have not saved any money for college.  I will be updating this post each time we pay something toward the cost of Little Bun to give a realistic picture of the costs without the assistance of insurance.  Neither of our policies will cover anything beyond diagnosis.

I am NOT tracking the costs to get us to and from the RE's office and the lost time from missing work, only the costs of diagnosis, labs, treatments, medications, ultrasounds, and testing.

Initial Visit with Dr. Mark: $250 (insurance covered a portion leaving this for us)

Daddy Bun Blood Work: $145
Initial Visit with Dr. Witt: $250
