Age (if you care to share): 35, Darling Husband is 37
TTC since: I guess we got into a TTC mindset sometime last fall, though we had found about about DH’s infertility before then, so knew we needed serious interventions.
Issues (if any): DH has azoospermia (zero count), I have clotting issues (and take supplements accordingly, and do shots after embryo transfer). Our AMAZING medical team found enough sperm surgically to fertilize all of my eggs at my ER. But the surgery was a one time thing for many reasons, so if our frosties don’t work, we’ll use donor sperm (and I’m so grateful that Darling Husband is willing to go that route if need be, but hoping we won’t need to!).
Chart?: Nope. I don’t know how you guys do it. When I did it while testing for O, I got so worn out by it!
Currently: Endometrial biopsy tomorrow, hopefully (test results permitting, though we’re doing it more as a precaution, my RE is pretty sure everything will come back normal) FET next cycle (which starts in few days! Yippee!)
Supplements/how are you going about your BFP: FET. I take lots of pills: prenatals, fish oil, coq10, baby advil, and folate B-vitamin.
When I get my BFP, I’ll celebrate by: Hmmmm, I really don’t know. I’ll have a giddy smile on my face and will likely go out for a nice dinner (sans wine), but I don’t think I’ll really be able to fully relax until out of the first trimester and past most of the miscarriage risk.
If it’s not this cycle, we’ll: Do another FET. If our FETs don’t work, we’ll do IUI with donor sperm, but I’m really hoping it doesn’t come to that.
Favorite thing about your partner: He is the most kind, affectionate person I’ve ever met. And every so often he’s good for a fabulous belly laugh 🙂
Fun plans for this fall / winter season (or the season you are entering)?: Leaving for California in a few days, then looking forward to the apple orchard, changing leaves, and the ability to be outside in comfortable weather.
