24 million sperm? And it only takes 1!
Sheesh.
post #103 of 598
id say that looks awesome considering we got pregnant with only 3 mil !!!
post #104 of 598
Yeah...it only takes 1...and why is it so hard then???!!!

The samples we used this weeked were 22 million...so I guess that's good! I wasn't sure...but I feel better now. But...his % motility was much lower...I can't recall exactly...but I want to say around 30%. Seems strange that the % motility is low...but the count is high. Maybe I'm remembering wrong.

Anyway...good luck Frog.

So am I. That was exactly what I was looking at, in fact. Perhaps Ez and I will take a walk to the store this afternoon.

Great motility! Congrats, I'm excited that you guys are starting again!

(The final numbers that worked for me were ~55% motility, and 58 million motile sperm per cc...)

Yeah, Frog! Those sound like great numbers to me. :

And yeah! too for Snoop Dog and COokie, welcome all newcomers, and hugs to all braving the TWW and those in the bummer-land of BFNs.

As for me, 11 DPO. I've tested with the cheapie Dollar Store HPT, but nothing's doing so far. Among the other usually completely un-noteworthy things going on with my body:

- I pee regularly, but only in amounts completely reasonable in relation to what I drink and not one drop more;

- My poops are depressingly regular, with not a bit of constipation to complain of;

- My nipples do not burn, my breasts do not ache, and my chest is as creamy and un-veiny as the heaving bosom of bodice-ripper heroine;

- As alluded to above, my bosom is heaving, but I am already a woman of ample endowment in that regard and it is certainly not more heaving than usual;

- Though I have been shamelessly perusing the perfume counter and dousing myself in cologne like a gay boy preparing for his circuit party and frequenting the most odiferous grocery store aisles I can find, I have not gagged from overwhelming odor - not even once;

- Similarly, I am so free of nausea that I could go deep-sea fishing right now in choppy water, hook the worms, and clean the fish afterward with no ill-effects whatsoever;

- The only thing that causes me to taste metal is when I fail to completely unwrap my chewing gum (that also causes those weird sparks from my old-school fillings).

I'd go have a beer to celebrate my good health, but I'm hypothetically pregnant.

Alright, women. Please, remind me again that despite the paucity of any evidence that I am still in this thing and it's not over until the lady in red sings!

mhiccup, you totally rawk.

It ain't over 'til it's over, my friend. 11 DPO is NOTHING.

Is it because it's silicone? (Again, not referring to the pineapple.)
Is that the problem?

Am I missing something?
ok, why am I just reading this??? I swear I am paying attention.

ROFL.

TMI moment for you... we are probably the only lesbians out here trying to get pregnant and out buying condoms. The whole thought of it is hilarious to me.
I have a newfound allergy to ahem... silicone. Total party pooper.

as for me, I can finally start peeing in a cup to check for ovulation TOMORROW, as my body is kicking in and we are headed toward the big O. Maybe I'll have me an amphibious cycle buddy?

Woohoo! I've been peeing on things since last night--nothing, yet, but I suspect we'll do our insems Wednesday/Thursday.
