YAY! I was just going to start one.
Age (if you care to share): 27, Darling Husband 34
TTC since: April 2013
Issues (if any): Darling Husband has low sperm count and low testosterone.
Chart? haven’t really been charting much but http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/wanderinggypsy
Currently: cd 9
Supplements/how are you going about your BFP: prenatals when I remember (trying to be better), I think we’re going to try BDing every third day instead of every other, give Darling Husband more time to build up his count. Darling Husband started taking Clomid a few days ago, so far no huge side effects. I’m trying to remember to chart, but I’ve been sleeping in more than normal so it’s been counterproductive.
When I get my BFP, I’ll celebrate by: honestly, I can’t even think about that since it feels like that (if it ever happens) is so far away. I’m trying to focus on each day as it comes.
If it’s not this cycle, we’ll: keep trying. Next month Darling Husband has another SA with a new lab, we’ll see where he is. And after 3 months of Darling Husband being on Clomid we will see if it’s had any effect on his men. Our next steps kind of depend on his results. If there is improvement we are willing to wait a bit more to see how much improvement we can get, if there is very minimal improvement but we reach the 10 mil/ml mark (our doctor’s minimum for IUI) we will start getting my tests done etc. and start the process of IUI.
Since TTC after 12+ cycles (or with IF) issues, is a very different experience than a fertile couple trying in the first month, how do you stay connected to your SO?
We try to be very honest with eachother, we don’t dwell on the bad parts of TTC with infertility, we take it day by day and we just try to be there for eachother. Date nights, dinners out, movies, cuddling in bed. We try to keep the baby talk to a minimum.
Just for fun…What are you most looking forward to this Spring/Summer?
We don’t have too much planned, hopefully some family will come visit. We’ll probably go on a small vaction or two. Mostly just relaxing. Last year was crazy with travelling all the time so I’m looking forward to just spending time at home and doing things around the house!
Carried over from other thread:
@Yellow.Clover: thanks for thinking of me! He’s on Fertilaid right now, we might try adding count boost as well but we want to see how he does with the other stuff first. Waiting sucks, but it’s the best way to REALLY see what is working and what isn’t.
