    BC - One of my coworkers had a friend who completed a successful IVF cycle at TAMC after TR a few years ago. I spoke with her on the phone and she had nothing but good things to say about the program. Here's the link to their info on the web: Reproductive Endocrinology Infertility. The IVF Info link is their handbook and it looks pretty good.

    Good luck, sending baby dust your way.

    (BTW, we're PCSing there this summer, but opted to repeat at WR before we left because of less wait time and I'll be 40 at the end of this year. Are you headed that direction also?)

    Holly- No we arent, YET, but we are considering trying to PCS there when hubs gets back from this deployment. He will be re-enlisting and I will no longer be active duty. Plus alot of my friends from Colorado have PCSd there, so it would be a great place to do it. If the wait isnt too long. Who wouldnt want to do IVF in Hawaii?

    we thought about re enlising and trying for hawaii. I heard though that it is very expensive like 6.00 for a loaf of bread expensive! so... maybe better to just vacation there? If we PCSed there I have a feeling I would never ever want to leave. LOL

    Ha, that is funny sarah...that is one of the places my husband has to choose for his orders. But, we are waiting to see if he gets the extension he put it here before he makes his choice. His choices are Hawaii, Germany, Georgia, New york, Kentucky. I'd love to go to Hawaii but I have already had to hear enough about it from my mom (She doesn't want us to move there, she wants us closer to her).

    GA is great, but I have ZERO desire to go back there, I spent 18 years of my life there. I actually just talked to hubs and he wants to go to GA..... I SOOOOO dont want to... I told him if he goes to GA, I am not going!! hahaha...

    Yeah, I am thinking Hawaii would be best but I'd also like to go to Germany too. So if DH's extension doesn't get approved here then I guess I will have to decide where I want us to go....Would be nice to move to a place that does IVF so there would be no traveling but that only option on our list is Hawaii so we will see! Would be totally awesome if we all went to Hawaii.
