DH and I are seeing a urologist today at 2:15 to see if there can be anything done for his low sperm count. I don't know why I'm so nervous but I am! I hope we get some good news. Pray for us!

Thanks gals,

Thanks so much for the prayers everyone. The apointment went well. This is the 2nd urologist we've seen and he noticed a varicocele in DH. (an inlarged vein in his testicle). DH will have a sonogram on Friday to confirm it, and if it is indeed there, then DH will have to have surgery to correct it. The poor guy got so pale and had to lay down at the mention of surgery "down there!" But at least something can be done. That could improve his count by about 70% which sounds like a lot but it will still not be a "normal" count. But it's still good because then we'd have more to work with if we did an IUI or something. So basically good news and we're just waiting for the confirmation! Thanks for being there for me!

Just out of curiosity--how did you know dh had a low sperm count to begin with?

Sounds like you got some promising news. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Dh's dad has a low sperm count and so do his uncles. (they all have kids though so that's good). Anyway, because there was a family history of it, we had Dh checked out. He gave to samples and both were very low. I wanted to be prepared before we started ttc so we knew if there might be a problem. Then we could maybe do something to fix it and everything would be fixed by the ttc date. I was talking to some ladies from another board though who's DH's had the surgery and they said it didn't make much difference. :( Sad! I was so excited too. :( But sometimes it does make a difference so there's hope. I just hate to put DH through something like that for nothing. Ya know?

Oh well. Thanks for the prayers.
