  • @TravelingCouple yay for EWCM!!

    Question for you ladies: DH had a SA done at the end of January and his count was 40 million. My midwife told us that this was normal and nothing to worry about, but from hearing others experiences on this board and doing a bit of googling that seems like it's a bit low. We don't see the RE until May 15 so I'm wondering if she will interpret the results differently. Any thoughts?

  • @shortstack930. I have no idea, as all I'd be doing is googling...  I *do* know the wait to see a specialist is hard.  Just try not to overthink it. If your midwife said it's fine, try to trust her for now and just leave it at that! ;)  40 million sounds great to me! :D

  • @wabash15 Thank you so much for telling your story. ***TW*** I had an early MC at the beginning of this month, and I was definitely very excited and happy and nervous for that BFP. There were some IF feelings in there - relief and accomplishment and fear, but mostly we were excited. I've been scared about what it will be like when or if that next BFP comes. I want to be happy, excited, and hopeful, but I've been scared I won't be. Part of me feel likes I shouldn't be because of what happened last time, and MH has said he doesn't want to get excited next time. But, you're right, we shouldn't let IF steal our joy, and I think we need to give ourselves permission to be excited and joyful despite what has happened and knowing we don't know when or if things will work out. ***end TW***

  • @madspunk and @wabash15 TW- I too had an early miscarriage earlier this month and was so excited for the positive only to lose it several days later. ****End TW*** we just had our second iui on Friday, and hoping it works, but with DH performance issues, we were not able to BD that night and next morning- it is so discouraging to go through everything we have to go through because of IF. So glad to have this group- although I am new and haven't commented much yet.

  • @bpietronicco This really is an amazing group of women. Don't stress too much about not getting a BD session in after your IUI.  They are nice but not necessary.  That IUI got those swimmers where they need to go. Hugs and GL this cycle!!
