Hi all, I've been lurking around here for the past few days... I introduced myself in the Fall thread so I think I'll quickly re-introduce myself here...

My husband and I started TTC in June '07, but nothing happened, despite me having perfect charts. We finally got him in for an SA last June, and discovered in July that he only has about 200-300,000 sperm per ejaculation. This puts us directly onto the IVF track. After taking a few months to figure things out, we've scheduled our first consultation appointment for December 5th.

I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you better, despite the circumstances!

lol. you're all too kind. I'm sure. The ultrasound was mostly grainy nothing from my perspective, but the u/s tech assured me that there is one sac and one embryo.

songbird YAY!!:: Good luck!!


AAM I saw my Dr @ work today and told him I wouldn't be coming to see him for a month or two. He said that is a reasonable idea. Then he asked if my preg test was negative. I said "duh, if it was positive I would have been in your office the very next day!!" I saw him again a little bit later and he said it can be very discouraging and can drive you nuts. once again.. DUH!! pretty sure i know both of those things!!

Hello friends!

songbird just wanted to pop on and state a huge Congratulations to you and your hubby : : : : So very thrilled for you and what a blessing, the month you step down from doing the thread, you are blessed

I am praying many sticky blessings for you and bean

Praying for all my dear friends here.

Still on my break and enjoying it although babies are still on my mind I am now working at an organic health food store! My eyes have been opened by so many things and I am hoping we can get that natural BFP, if not, like songbird we will be moving to ART next year. Cannot afford the TCM doc just yet so we are on our own.

Anyway just had to pop in and give my love and best to songbird and you all.

Don't give up believing my friends, all is possible to those who believe

Enjoy your pregnancy!!!! Live in this moment! :

AFM: Af showed this morning. After a really long and weird cycle. Hopefully things get back on track so that our IUI in January will go smoothly.

I'm in the throes of PMS now, 13dpo. I cried during the Vetran's Day parade on tuesday, last night was an all out cryfest due to my frustration with TTC (two more pregnancies announced by friends). I swear the PMS is worse now than it ever used to be. Even through we are taking a break, I'm still wanting everything to magically work out...

When DH was first diagnosed with cancer, they said he would have about a 20 year life expectancy. That means that he's not even expected to make 60 years old, let alone retirement age. It feels like there is so much pressure to get on with life and get the most out of it now.

It wasn't supposed to be like this. I've concieved without trying twice, why is it so hard now? I just don't get it and it is so painful.

Oh Kim, I am so so sorry. No, it's not supposed to be this hard and there is no pain quite as tender. Wishing you a soft place to rest in for a few days. Much love to you and your family.

So I actually have some good news. I retested my FSH.
Short recap: last year it was 6.3 totally normal. In Sept. it came back 12.1 indicating premature ovarian failure, something that others in my family have dealt with. We were sure I was going down that path too and fast. We redid it again this week on cd 3 and it was....6.9. I cannot explain the relief and sheer hallelujah of this result. The follistim injections are okay (3 days down so far)...feeling a bit queasy. Last night's was rough, quite a bruiser, but I'm getting through it. Tomorrow I get my first u/s to see what is going on with the ovaries. Fingers crossed.

Poet- Good luck. How odd about your FSH levels. At least this result one was good. Let us know on the follie study. Do you want to join our Nov IUI thread?

Eastbay- I'm sorry.

Songbird45: I just wanted to pop in and say CONGRATS!!! I saw that you got your BFP a week or so ago but I know how it feels to be cautious but everyone still telling you congrats! So I decided to wait until YOU were ready to admit it. Now that you have.... : CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS!!! : You really deserve this! I must warn you though, I'm probably going to stalk you in the July DDC!! H & H 9 months!!!

I hear ya!! today my bff told my DD that she is preg (I told her it was ok to tell her if she wanted to- we were looking @ u/s pics and DD asked what they were). When Bff told DD she had a baby in her belly, my heart just dropped. I figured I would get to tell DD that Mommy had a baby in her belly- just kinda hit home a little bit that I may never get to tell Meg she is gonna be a big sis.
Hurts a lot... some days more than others. We are also on an elective break from TTC. I just can't be that person right now. Everyone waiting and hoping for me to get preg, only to get a neg each month. Way easier to say- we aren't trying! Everyone says "yeah you will get preg b/c you aren't trying now". NO! My body isn't going to magically fix itself because I am not having u/s, bloodwork etc. I am not expecting to get preg in these 2 months. We will prolly BD in my fertile days, but going to try and not obsess in the 2ww (easier said than done I am sure!!)

This has been a difficult month for a lot of us already... sucks!

Hi Held Its nice to see you pop in and say hi. I hope you and dh are ok. I have moved over to these boards after our failed 6 months trying( I know not long but..). I feel so much comfortable over here. I feel this is my home and everyone understands the pain. The other section is great but I was having a very hard time with BFP every minute. I don't know if you have kept up with my story but we will be doing IUIs and maybe IVF. Right now I am in the workup stage. At the rate I am going it will be next year before we do anything.

I wish you the best Held. Missed you.

That's great news!!:

AFM: Because of my long cycle this month, it makes sense to go ahead and try our first IUI this month!!!! Because I will O after Thanksgiving. We were orginally going to wait until January because of the holidays and timing and everything. Well, it all worked out soooo we are going to go for it! I'm excited and nervous.

WOW, great. I would be on top of this world with that low number. Nothing is stopping you now. (I know all about these FSH levels). I need to know mine soon. Good luck on your u/s tomorrow. How are you doing on the shots?
