  1. I am glad I am not alone...Lol I have my DH taking so many vitamins that it is not even funny. We are trying to improve sperm mobility and the form of his sperm. I did some reach on the net and I have read some posting on the board that it does help. We plan on talking to our RE to see what test we can do on him that will help us . I have three beautiful boys from my first marriage and my DH has only one child who is 27. DH daughter was born with a birth defect(her stomach on the outside of her body). My OB doctor thinks the problem is with my husband. So, I am hoping that we can find out something soon.

  3. Hi gals!!!

    Well my app't is tomorrow at 3:00. Not sure if you want me to switch threads or not as I am hoping for an earlier cycle. Probably start injections Nov 13th ish, Egg retrievel Dec 7th and ET Dec 10th ish!

    Will know for sure tomorrow.

    Danna - you have the next app't after me I believe!

  4. We would still love to have you in the thread. You can lead the pack. Jeni

  5. Hi Gals,
    I'm in the recovery process of live ectopic tubal pregnancy, my embie was 6w and 109 HR at the first shot of methotrexate (4ml), then 7 w at 2nd shot of methotrexat (4ml), I had surgery to remove my left tube when HGC reached 26150 last Saturday.

    I'm fine and come back to exercise routine, and taking many fertility stuffs, prenatal vitamin, etc... for the next round will be the end of the Dec and beginning of Jan.

    God Bless Us All.

  6. Welcome RUZIGANA!

  7. Haha-Welcome.

    AFM-I went to my first accupunture apt on Wednesday and I loved it. I am so excited and I am hoping that it will help me not to m/c if we do get pg again. My accurpuntist wants to treat my DH as well so I was super excited about that too. AHHH! Glad to see that our group is growing...

  8. Just a quick update...

    Sonohysterogram went well today...everything looks good in there which is a sigh of relief--no scar tissue from the c-section, no fibroids, no polyps, no cysts. My uterus is bicornuate and we talked about a definite SET since selective reduction is not something we want to face or have to do. Looks like I will start bcps on day 3 of my November cycle (should start around 11/24-28). They will keep me on bcps for 3 1/2 weeks to manipulative my ER/ET so that it falls on 1/11 and 1/16. Originally, that was exactly what I wanted because it works with my vacation, but now I'm having second thoughts. Usually you do about 10 days of bcps and then start Lupron. I am worried I'll be oversupprressed or something like that, so I might just let it go and when it happens it happens and take days off accordingly. If we do that, then I would start bcps with my December cycle. More to think about!

    Hope everyone is doing well! Bev...glad you enjoyed acu! I go back this week and am soooo looking forward to it!

  9. Danna- I put your tentative dates on the chart. Good Luck. Congrats on you HSG showing good results.

    AFM--DH does his SA this morning. Do all men act like they are being asked to do the most embarassing, horrible thing on the face of the planet. He thinks there isn't enough privacy for him at the hospital lab (must use a public restroom). When we undergo transfer, we have about six people in the room---at least no one will be in the room with him . Just wondering if anyone else's DH complains. Jeni

    Edited to add an update:

    OK, I actually feel kinda sorry for DH. He arrived at the hospital and went to admitting to register and pay for the test. He went to a different town to be \"more private\". The woman who registered him in admitting and billed him for the SA ended up being his cousin's wife (he didn't realize she worked there)...so now the whole family will probably know we are ttc. He went to lab, which had no place for collection, so he was sent to a multi-stall public restroom. He said that everytime he had almost accomplished his mission, someone would come in to use the restroom and he would have to start from square one. He said 5 different people came in and used the restroom before he was finally able to finish. Poor guy....I guess they do kinda have it rough. Jeni

  10. Oh gosh...that is kinda' horrible. Your poor DH! That sounds awful...how will your family will take it? What will they say?

  11. Oh gosh...that is kinda' horrible. Your poor DH! That sounds awful...how will your family will take it? What will they say?

    I think the family will survive, I am more worried about DH. As if that wasn't bad enough his SA was not good. Maybe someone here can give us advice.
    [img]images/icons/icon1.gif How grim is this?
    <HR style=\"COLOR: #f6f7e7\" SIZE=1><!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->Is this as grim as I think it is? Do we need to do DS? We are already doing DE because my FSH is 52. We are going to the Czech Republic, but my DH is 50% American Indian and that would mean any child would expect to look 25% AI. It isn't easy to use AI DS in the Czech Republic.

    Volume 1.5
    Viscosity Abnormal
    Color White Opalescent
    Liquefaction 90 minutes
    pH 8
    Sperm Count <2.0
    Motility <51
    MSC <0.2
    SMI 83

    Specimen unable to Liquefy, added qwikcheck liquefaction

    Tests Unable to Perform (Due to Liquefaction)

    Rapid Motility, Slow Motility, non-progressive, immotility, normal, PMSC (a), PMSC (b), FSC, and Velocity.

    I guess Prostate issues can cause the Viscosity/Liquefaction issues.

    Any Opinions are welcome. Jeni

  12. Well, I had a few bad days. I am so mad at my DH that it is not even funny. I told him Monday that I don't think that I even want to do a cycle again. Men can just be stupid! So, I just don't know what I am going to do.. My apt is Oct 21 and Dh has ****** me off.. I know that is an ugly attitude but that is how I feel..

    Bev---sleep on things a few days and see if things look better. I always ask myself \"Will this matter in my life 5 years from now?\" If the answer is yes.....I know I need to deal with it and make decisions. If the answer is no.....sometimes I just need to let it go. I have no idea what your situation is and whether or not it will matter 5 years from now. Just don't ever make decisions while you are mad.....sometimes you regret those later. Jeni

  14. We just got back from the Doctor's. DH has low testosterone and Prostate problems. He started him on Doxycyline and weekly Testosterone shots. We will be repeated the SA in a month or two. He told us to have \"lots of sex\" , take the meds/shots and he thinks we can improve his SA. God I hope so. DH and I think we will probably get backup DS just in case the day of ER his critters look like ****. Jeni

  15. Hi Ladies!
    Sorry I've been out of touch--I needed a break from all things IF after the m/c. AF started over the weekend and now I am staying on the pill until I start over in Jan. I am scheduled to start stims 1/1 with tentative ER 1/11 and ET 1/14 (same as Danna!)

    Jeni--eek! so sorry DH had to go through that--that just stinks. its not too often the guys get a taste of what we go through--i feel like IF is equivalent to surrendering all privacy
    i think you are wise to plan DS just in case, but hopefully you won't need it

    bev--go on a girls weekend getaway! hope things blow over quickly. just remember he's the same guy you fell in love with. I think IF tends to magnify all relationship issues....or maybe that's just us!

    danna--glad your test was normal--what a relief! we'll be on the same schedule. i am staying on OCPs from now until late December. i am relieved to not have to worry about my natural cycle for the next 2 months. i know conceiving spontaneously isn't going to happen, so at least i can have a 2 month break from getting my hopes up and then crushed each month

    Hope everyone had a great weekend!

  16. Ladies I honestly don't know if it will be that easily with everything that is going on. My DH- 26 yr old daughter (she is on crystal meth and has a son 3) is always asking for money and she is in trouble all the time. I am just tired of dealing with it and I don't see getting pregnant will help our sitatution. I love my DH but that daughter of his is a NIGHTMARE FROM HELL.... I did cancel my apt for Oct 21st.

    Well----that could definitely fits the \"will this affect my life 5 years from now\" scenario. I think you and DH have to be on the same page and set boundaries and know how you are going to handle this situation before you bring other kids into it. Sorry you are going through this. Jeni

  18. I totally agree! We saw a psy last Friday and she agreed that DH needs to show TUFF LOVE but will he?? DH feels like his daughter will change but she has been this way since she was thirteen. We have been married four years in January and the daughter has never STOPPED doing drugs. Even when she was pregnant! The girl got arrested for possession of weed and drinking beer 6 months pregnant. We had to take her son away from she last year because she was giving the kid beer and crown royal in his sippy cup...OHHH the daughter also had an abortion a year ago and these are the kind of people that can get pregnant with no problems...... It just makes me so mad. Sorry!

    Do you have custody of her son? Jeni

  20. No we do not! We did when she was in rehab but during the whole time she was in rehab she kept something going with me all the time. The daughter was continuely saying that me and my boys was abusing her son. Can you believe that! She was the one giving her son beer and pinching him on the face leaving bruises. My DH ex-wife started with her junk to so I told DH to let the ex-wife raise the kid. The ex-wife is no better than the daughter. So to make a long story short the ex-wife let her ex-boyfriend keep the kid until the daughter got out of rehab. The daughter has him two days out of the week and the mother's ex boyfriend keeps him the rest of the time. I do not want to raise the kid because the daughter would never give me and my DH a minutes peace. The daughter does not love the kid but she uses the boy to get what she wants for her mother and father. I stay out of the drama I am finished with trying to help the daughter and the kid. I know that might sound bad but I have done all I can do for them.

  21. I sent the money to the clinic yesterday afternoon to pay for the complete cycle. I completed all of the paperwork for our donor/preferences/sent our pictures. All of our STD tests should be back today. I am going to complete all of the other paperwork today that is needed to finalize my protocol. My meds should be shipped to me in the next couple of weeks. Things are starting to move along quickly.

    How is everybody else doing?

    Anybody starting to get information yet?

    Jeni

  22. bev--well that situation just takes the cake. i am so sorry you have to deal with all that!!!

  23. Bev--

    Did you just cancel the appointment until you get things settled or have you decided to stop cycling? I hope that you get things worked out. Sorry you are going through this. Jeni

  24. Is anyone else going NUTS waiting to start? I am not a patient person!

  25. I'm still waiting for my period come back after ectopic tube removal 10/03. I\"m not a patient person too , but not going nut, instead that I use time to do something, to reduce eagerness and excitement, taking a lot of fertility stuffs. But I don't know exactly date of Dec/Jan cycle yet until my AF arrives.

    I'm exercising to lose some pounds. That is my interest/goal to detract me from IVF. So far, no pound is lost. but I do look leaner a little bit

    Have a nice weekend Gals.
