AF showed. Don't we hate her?

DH is going to get a sperm analysis this week... I"m going to schedule an appointment with our midwives (well-woman visit... hehe why is it that we put these visits off so much?). I've put it off last month because of all the apointments for my surgury and b/c DH was out of town meaning I'd have to find a babysitter to go to a doc's appointment! lol. I'll be printing out my charts to bring with, and keeping up with temping this month. I think I'm going to set alarms on my husband's cell phone telling him my fertile days... lol. we usually cop out after about three or four (I'm thinking maybe I O'd a day later than I assumed last cycle? I'm really never late for my period). We'll see what the midwives recomend. Hopefully DH's sperm look good even though his testosterone is low (he did try a couple different treatments for this for medical reasons, but they gave him bad side affects like weight gain while he's on a steady ---very much needed--- path of weight loss. We'll see. We don't morally want to do any more than clomid and maybe a drug to up his counts if needed. And after all, we do already have a child with hearing loss (did you guys know that?) we don't want to be on all sorts of weird things with possible side effects. We'll see though. I do trust the doctors and midwives. We'll see. lol.

As for now I'm going to focus on not knocking down the pregnant people shopping in my section at work (I shelve the pregnancy/parenting section at a bookstore). lol.

I am so sorry to see that AF showed - what a witch!

I hope that this month will be the one for you.

I definately think you should set alarms on your husbands phone - that is awesome! :smileyvery-happy:

Hey lady :( Sorry to hear that Af showed - was very hopeful for you this month.

I hope DH's testing comes with positive results and that you don't have to travel down that clomid road.

So sorry you were disappointed this month. : (
I hope all is good with your and your hubby's Dr. appts and it's just a matter of timing.
That sounds like a good plan to not knock down pregnant women... they are usually heavy and may squish you.
Here's hoping for next month... : )
