Hi. I've been moreso of a lurker on this board. I had posted on the TTCYFC for awhile but soon began lurking there too. Thought I'd share my story in case anyone else can find hope or other information from it. My story in short.....TTC x 16 cycles. My age 31, DH 34. DH diagnosed with teratospermia (abnormal morphology 3-3.5% normal shaped) but otherwise normal counts, motility, etc. Much later on I was diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve (my FSH is 9, AMH 0.48). We tried naturally for 12 cycles, then tried one cycle of clomid with timed intercourse, then 2 IUIs with clomid. After the 2nd IUI was when I learned of my DOR.

Thanks tess0425! and loads of baby dust to you on your first IVF cycle!

And just to update everyone....currently 12 weeks along with a singleton. Everything has been going great. Just had an U/S on Wed and the baby waved at us as soon as they put the transducer on my abd. It is crazy how the baby actually looks like a baby now. I've been feeling good too. No signficant morning sickness to speak up my first trimester. Just hungry and thirsty all the time. and we finished the Progesterone shots a few days after Xmas so that was awesome!
