Ruth, I don't think drinking in the past would be that big a deal or moderate drinking now. It should only be a problem if he was a heavy drinker now. One drink a day is not heavy drinking.
AFM, I'm out this month. Moving on to our last month of femara.
"Sorry if this is TMI, but it really didn't help that the first thing when I got home, DH apologized for "wasting some sperm" earlier today. >:("
OMG! This annoys the hell out of me and DH does it ALL the time (okay, not ALL the time, but often enough). I don't care normally, but I have expressly forbid him to do it during BDing week, and he STILL does it sometimes. WTH, it is only one week, and I will have sex with you if you want, so what is the big deal! Point being, I feel your frustration, and I'm sure that was responsible for the difficulty in finishing and he was just blaming it on feeling pressured. Men!
But your timing does look great anyway--it must be really relieving just to know that you O'ed and got a "real try" in, and that you are being monitored so you won't have any weirdly short "wasted" cycles.
I hope that this is it for you guys!!
Ella, Lorien, and others who wished me well, thanks so much for thinking of me, but I'm pretty certain this isn't our month. I think my temps would be higher if there was a bean in there, and I have been testing every morning and they are stark white. :-P
I'm not too surprised, because I thought it was just too good to be true that the Metformin would work SOOO well two times in a row, and I was taking it a little spottily anyway.
Also, I want to go on the eighth grade trip to Washington DC in April, which is five days four night and a ton of walking. I don't mind being pregnant, but if I got PG this month I would have been like 33 weeks PG, which I though was a bit much--now it will be 29 or so, which I think will be a lot easier to deal with.
I just know that I will not want to go on this trip when I have a small baby/child, and it honestly might be my ONLY opportunity to go depending on what I decide in terms of working/staying home, etc.
Soooo, I'm not too disappointed.
I saw the RE on Thursday and it went really well. He was like overjoyed to see me and glad everything was going well. He ordered BW to make sure my hormones are completely back to normal, but I am waiting for my temps to dip below coverline or AF to show, just to make sure I am not at all PG when I get the BW done (otherwise he would think they were leftover from the m/c, or it wouldn't be clear one way or the other).
After AF comes, I will start taking the Metformin twice a day instead of once a day, and I will get an ultrasound right before O to make sure there are mature follies before we really get into BD Fest too much.
So I am hopeful for this next month anyway.
Hello ladies! Hope everyone is doing well. Sorry I don't have time for personals right now but just needed to vent a little: (TMI warning)
Well today I went in for my progesterone levels, which came back showing I did in fact ovulate (but I already knew that, of course ;p But also today, they wanted me bring in the "specimen" for DH's S/A. We didn't do anything yesterday (and neither did he) but he told me on Tuesday he had, as Kass said, "flushed the pipes." Which I guess SHOULD be fine, as the RE only told us don't do anything on Wednesday. Now I did have to bring it in EARLY this morning, so I wake DH up and of course he's grouchy in the morning. But goes and locks himself in the bathroom (with his laptop LOL) and then after a while comes out with the cup and says "Hardly anything came out." And I mean like you could barely tell anything was in there unless you tilt the cup. So here I am trying to handle the situation as sensitively as I can, ask him if he actually "felt like" he really "came." But he said not really. I asked him if he thought maybe he could get more. So he went back in the bathroom for a few minutes but then he was worried that what if it takes too long and whatever did come out dies. So we decided I should just take that in anyway. I know it must be hard for guys if you force them to do that "on command" and especially so early in the morning. So as I was driving to the doctor I just started bawling thinking what if he doesn't have anything? And of course I still had tears welling up and my face was red when I went in so everyone kept asking "are you ok?" Ugh. Well when I told the RE that DH had trouble getting "enough" of a sample he just said "Whatever came out is what he's got." I'm thinking dear God I hope not..... Oh, and on top of that I did have to pay full price for that tiny S/A because DH doesn't have insurance.
UGH! Sorry for the vent, I'm just so frazzled right now. Has anyone else ever had trouble with DH getting the "sample" for the S/A?
What a sucky situation!
