Oh fruck it @gorgeousgeorge. It sounds like your survival mode is to swing into practical mode. I'd be doing exactly the same thing. We're all here for you while you support DH. Like you said, it sounds like he'll have grieving his own fertility. Bless him. Do you have a blood test form yet? Massive, massive hugs .
@Blossom74 - fantastic. Enjoy this little moment in the sun and don't think about 2 days time at the moment!
@gorgeousgeorge - I'm sorry about the bfn. However you seem to be coping well and have a plan on the next step. A plan is everyone's saviour. Sperm can vary - from sample to sample - DH's were normal but we did have one sample that was a couple of percent lower on the percentage normal than other samples , albeit it still scraped in at normal.
@Blossom74 they are fantastic numbers & all sounds like it is right on track for a successful transfer & some frosties!
@Spazzyp & @Jazzabelle13 congrats on those numbers, that's great for OE!
@Tahli those numbers sound good - you're right on track but I can imagine the stress - good thing you're being monitored so that you know what's happening. How nice would it be to be a woman who falls pregnant & is oblivious to things like hCG & p4 levels?
@tuxcat, @Tinachris @gorgeousgeorge huge hugs all round, there are so many ups & downs on this journey & I hope your BFPs are not far away ❤️

@Blossom74 congrats wow that's amazing numbers! @gorgeousgeorge big hugs hun it's totally devo, your DH must be feeling the hit pretty bad. Did they do a sperm analysis test at the time of his sample? Ie count, motility and morphology? I know most clinics give you a report on the sperm sample produced at the time of egg collection. Although a certain clinic we all know did not do this and I found it frustrating as it is a very tell tale sign on whether the cycle in question was in fact male factor or eggs. If ICSI is being done then morphology is the main one to be concerned about and believe it or not anything greater than 5% is considered normal. It appears most men's sperm these days are a little wonky!
im glad your ready for the next phase in your journey already ..... back on that horse hey giddiup and I hear ya make use of that FACS leave and enjoy another holiday.
One reason in my head not to cancel my EPU today was that I would not have a reason to stay home from work although I was really tired from hormones! ... but what better reason then to take a week off and relax in Greece and make a baby. Is it an option to try and improve DH sperm or go straight to donor embryo?
