@STB Ms.Win: Thank you. I was in the same boat – I have prepared myself to handle it being ‘my’ issue. My husband on the other hand has extreme anxiety and is very hard on himself. Luckily I got the call and went over everything with the doctor first, so I could break it him as easily as I could. He didn’t take it well at all, but I had already had time to deal with the news (cried on the phone to my mom) so I was able to be strong for him when I told him. I hope your ultrasound went well yesterday 🙂
I’m sorry about your husbands motility, and I know exactly what you mean. I just want to fix it for him! Sounds like the IUI went great! and we are on the same cycle this month – so I’m in the TWW with you!
That sounds very interesting. We are headed together to my accupuncturist today and he will work on diet for my DH (he already does for me). I am going to research that before our appointment. Thank you and so glad to hear it is working so well for your husband – that is truly amazing. I will PM you if I have any questions. I also am in the ‘don’t expect anything for the next 3 months’ zone (month 1) and as much as it stinks I think it makes the BFN a little easier to take and understand.
any updates yet, hoping you O’d late and no AF.
I just think guys deal with this in such a different way than we do. I have been encouraging him to talk to a friend or someone other than me about it, but no luck yet. What a bummer the tests didn’t show anything new for you husband. It is a little easier to take this information if you have an identifiable way to treat it/work on it. Hope you get good news on this next round of SA results and glad you are in good spirits now. Anesthesia isn’t bad, I have had it a fews times for minor surgeries and at least you don’t remember anything after 😉
welcome, I’m pretty new over here myself and I have learned a ton already. The ladies here are super supportive and informative. I second a short a sweet stay here for you!
Thank you, I a little nervous for the talk and first consult, but I would rather know what we are up against and prepare myself mentally. At least when I see the BFN or AF I will be better prepared for it.
It was a super tough weekend – my DH spend sunday/sunday night in the hospital with a crazy IBS flare up. Which means hot pads/showers + heavy meds. I am terrified what it just did to his boys. This was concurrent with my LH surge sat night/sun morning + EWCM. This was my first month temping and I just missed the most important 2 days b/c of being up at all hours of the last 2 nights with DH. So frustrating to have missed those temps, it was perfectly terrible timing.
We managed one BD sunday am, but he is out of commision for a few days due to the meds. The positive side of me is glad the flare up happened now at the beginning of our 3 month wait to work on his count and morphology. Better now than in 2 months. I have accupunture today and DH is getting his first treatment as well as diet consult. We have the RE consult on tomorrow. I think this board is helping me to stay so positive, because for whatever reason I am positive right now. Thank you all for the support!
