Well if there was ever 1 test I wanted to come back OK, its was this one.

DH & I both have 46 chromosomes.

Now, why cant I carry a baby?

I know how you feel - my eggs are apparently so awesome that they wanted to give me thousands of dollars to donate them. Am I pregnant after almost five years? Nope.

Congrats for small blessings. I hope you find the answer to your next question.

DH and I are getting this same test done. Do you mind if I ask how much it cost for you? We were too afraid to ask the RE office.

Michelle - I know how can ppl be so perfect yet be where we are. I know I have issues or I would have a good LP w/o Progesterone. I also question whether Factor V is really a non-issue.

Im done w/tests for now though. The last test my current RE would do is lining biopsy & right now I dont want to not TTC a month for that test.

Chouli - It was just listed on my stmt as lab & since I had about 10+ tests run that day, Im not sure. The most expensive billed that day was $125, then double it for DH as well.

I was actually expecting something more than you have 46XX & DH 46XY. I guess it takes 5wks to tell someone that?! I feel like I could have run that test in HS biology?!

Yep, I am a HS Bio teacher, and I should have just done our own karyotyping. :)

See, exactly! Im not sure why I was expecting something different since I had tissue tested w/D&C & everything was normal as well.
