Hey everyone. I never thought I would find myself here, but here I am. I have a lot to unload as I don't feel I could talk to my family about this or even friends really. Things have gotten more difficult for me to handle since my sister announced her pregnancy back in July and around that same time found out my cousin and his wife are expecting #2 (who have now spent less time conceiving 2 kids than we have to conceive 1).
I'm 29, DH is 31. Been TTC since July 2017. Back in May 2018 when I had my yearly OBGYN appt I talk to my doctor about us being nearly at a year of TTC with no luck. Took 2 progesterone tests to check that I was ovulating. I assumed I was fine in that department as OPKs never gave me troubling results and I started BBT charting and I was getting the temp increases to indicate O. Early August I had an HSG test which showed that my tubes are open. So far everything has indicated that I'm ok. DH finally went for a SA. If I remember the call correctly, his numbers are on the low side, but not that bad. Amount of normal sperm/morphology was only 1%. We were referred to a urologist and will he meeting with them in a week. I'm not sure what to expect.
I've struggled all year every time my cycle starts over. I think that's when I started losing hope and wondering if my DH was where our issues stemmed from. His parents took 4 years to conceive him and for his sister they used IUI and had her when my DH was 4. I asked my doctor if my DH could have issues because his parents struggled and smoked back then but he said no or that it's not necessarily a factor. It's hard to not feel like it has something to do with it and knowing the results of his SA were heartbreaking.
If you've read to this point, thank you. Sorry for my long story, but it feels good to finally tell someone. I look forward to getting to know everyone!
