I know sperm tests can be very random but that was unusually low compared to all his other ones....go figure?!?

Hey Keziah, great news on Dh's latest sperm test. Go the super sperminator!!
Sounds like that concoction is doing the trick!!
Its always hard to know why a single bad reading happens, but sometimes they just do, which is why they always repeat the test when the results arent good. It can be s/thing like a recent (in the last 2-3 months) infection etc. in some cases.
Good luck with your first dance class. You are v brave to be up there in front of a class, but I think you'll wow them!
Have a great day girls xox

Good luck Keziah with your first Zumba class, I am sure it will be fine, also grrreeat news on the sperm side its good to know where you stand on as much as you can.
Anemone, sounds like a plan with the nursery, I am the same, I would be getting the essentials, and save the money for later. Are/did you have a baby shower?
Pommie I hope you get that rental soon, for you and bub sake. gotta laugh about you plotting your return to oz!! Can't say I blame you, I wasn't overly enthralled with the uk when I visited, but they were in the middle of the coldest winter in 20 yrs or something like that , and I hate cold weather, and stodgy food. We stayed up in the middle of nowhere also, great yarmouth so it wasn't very exciting either!!
Hi Sarah, how are you doing you must be non-stop with two schools and if it feels like two jobs, I hope your not over doing it, especially with your sore back. Why is it women always are over worked, as it doesn't just stop at work. Just saying to dh this morning can he and step-son please clean up after themselves when they spill stuff. Ants have been driving me mad for a month, and only just got new tiled kitchen floor monday, mopped it all out yesterday before I left for work, come home last night there is sticky stuff all on floor so had to mop it again..fair dinkum SS is a lazy so and so, if hes not leaving spit in bathroom sink he's leaving floaters in loo or dirty clothes on floor aaarrggghhh what a grub. I can't say anything to him coz then its a drama he runs away saying I don't make him feel welcome etc etc he's 25 for crying out loud.
breathe jen breathe..now thats over, Hi Shelby, bet your dh is loving all the extra loving!!! I hope you get rewarded soon, and get your bfp, just keep at it love !! lol
afm, I feel a bit down lately, don't know if its the side effects from coming off the prednisolone or just delayed depression.In a bit of a fog, and wondering how much more of this I can do. Its been 9 cycles now, financially its ok so I suppose I am lucky in that regard, but emotionally its exhausting. When af came last wed, I did not get 1 hug or kind word from dh, I suppose mainly it was coz ss was here and we don't tell him anything about the ivf, we just sat watching tv.I don't really talk to anyone about this, except you ladies, I don't feel others understand the way you all do, so its futile telling anyone else.As for my mum, she only wants to know results not anything else about the process etc..
I thank god I have my little cuddle cat, which I put her picture on my avatar, she is a little sweetie.I got her form pet rescue nearly 2 yrs ago, and she is 9yrs old.
We are her 3rd family, and we are lucky to have her!
I have a day off today, and I am going to clean/sort out my storage room.(the pool room)
at least the weather is a bit drier today.
love you all Jen xoxox

You are more than welcome to join our little group of beautiful girls trying to conceive their first bub. All we ask of you is that you are sensitive to the fact we all have fertility issues and have not experienced having our own gorgeous bub. My story is that after about 7 years of trying we got UTD, it lasted 7 weeks, then I was lucky enough to catch again. Sadly our beautiful daughter died invitro at almost 21 weeks. She had DS, cystic hygromas and generalised swelling caused by all the complications. I am now suffereing secondary infertility - causes unknow. We have now been actively TTC again for about 14 months. But as the saying goes 'where there is a will (y) lol, there is a way - we are still positive and looking forward to the day we will be able to hold our own beautiful baby.
Hope you enjoy our little group and have success sooner rather than later.

anyway , best of luck wit it all.

It must be very difficult trying to keep it all under wraps under your own roof as well, wouldn't it be easier to tell SS? I'm sure that's a whole other story.
Sending very large hugs to you from my end.

Hi Ange, Hi Lizzie nice to have you along. Lizzie I see from your signature you are starting IVF, may your journey be short and fruitful. Ange I'm UTD with #2, I dropped in here by accident while ttc #2 and the ladies have been kind enough to keep me. Much to both
Sarah have you finally got your computer home and healthy?? Hope the back is settling well and your school schedule is getting a bit more normal.
Keziah how did the Zumba class go? Dying to hear all about it. Also glad to hear about DHs good SA results. Funny about the blip previously, but the supplements seem to be going a treat. Do you have a date in mind for the new IVF cycle?
Anemone hope you've dried out. Been a weird one weather wise this year. Does that mean there's water in the dams in Sydney too now?
Jen so sorry that DH was so ignorant about AF arriving . I know what is like to suddenly end up getting AF at work when you are so hopeful this is the time so I was devastated for you for that but at least I came home to tea and sympathy. This whole journey is just so tough on relationships, we all react differently. SOunds like SS needs to grow up and find his own place! Or at least pick up after himself...
Shelby I'm guessing you are pretty busy IYKWIM but please drop by and let us know how you're going
Feebs how are you gorgeous girl? Missing you...

I am still here lurking around girls LOL
Hi girls before i give an update - thought I might give a few personals and say a big welcome to the newby's as i am still very much a newby myself.
Pommie - you made me smile with your little comment to me as it is nice to know that someone has remembered that I am around - even if I havent been IYKWIM ha ha - thankyou for making me feel included.
Welcome Ange and Lizzy - i am trying to go thru the posts to keep myself updated on where everyone is at. Hope you find your stay with us supportive and understanding.
Jen - sorry to hear you are down in the dumps ATM and I am seriously hoping it has passed - hang in there girlfriend - you will read in my update that I have had some recent experience of this myself. I have two cats who are very supportive of my moods too I love my furry babies.
Sarah - hope is going all well with you ATM and the TTC journey for you brings you your dreams - Can I ask what secondary infertility means?? Sorry for my ignorance.
G'day anemone and keziah - hope all is well for you guys.
Ok OK - now I am trying not to get excited but I just have to ask you girls for your input. Even with the visitors and babysitting last weekend and pretty much being too exhusted to DTD - I think Ive worked out that we DTD approx 2/3 days before ovulation and one day after. MY BBT went up on Monday after a drop on the Sunday so thinking O was on or by CD18. The maybebaby was too hard to read so there were no ferns to indicate O but BBT (which has stayed in high temp since suspected O) and my CM indicated that Sat night and Sunday was possibly O. Anyhoo - I have still been doing maybebaby and this morning (CD24 and 6DPO) - FERNS - big strong ones. Sooooo am I wrong in thinking that I could possibly be pregnant
I have had a rough couple of weeks as I have found out that my 13yo blue heeler has lukemia and there is nothing we can do and I have just done my final drop to come completely off antidepressants - the discontinuation symptoms have included brain zaps, foggy head, bursting into tears as soon as someone talks to me etc etc. Not very productive when you nwork full time LOL. Got sent home from work Thurs and told to have Friday off as well but my boss and work are fantastically supportive.
Anyway - cant wait to hear what you gals think

I'm loving my chiro stuff at the moment - the dr is a marvellous man. My infra red scan showed that from T12 down that either my nerves, muscles or my skeleton was under stress. Basically that means everything to do with my reproductive system and uterus is having probs. All fixable, I have had 6 adjustments so far and they will rescan after 12. The bizzare thing is that after every adjustment I have twitching and spasms in my u know what, lol. Maybe it is a sign that everything is getting back to normal. Here's hoping anyway.
Hey Zumba (Kez) how are you lovely girl? Did the first lesson with you at the front go well? I'm sure you are an amazing teacher. Woohoo for Dh's love monkeys. I'm sure they will be ready for action this month. Good luck to you lovely lady. I'm with you every step of the way spiritually.
Hey Pommie - sending you much love from down under. Oh I love Manchester, super dooper currys. I have had some wonderful nights out in Manchester. I hope the rental market has turned up trumps for you so that you can get settled before the little one makes an appearance. Much love.
Hey Shelby - how are you chick? Secondary infertility is just a term for someone who has been pregnant but is now unable to do so again, causes unkown means that they do not know what is causing it as all my tests come back clear. Just dr mumbo jumbo for they haven't got a clue, lol.
Maybe Baby is just so hard to work out - I still do it everyday but don't actually take much notice. I too have had ferns after o and before AF arrives - sadly did not mean UTD for me but until the 'blob monster' as my DH calls it, turns up anything is possible. Fingers crossed for you. Mwah
Hiya Jen, you are still very much in my thoughts lovely girl. Men are just so not with it are they? I'm keeping everything crossed for whatever step you take next. I'm sure you will get a BFP soon. Mwah xxx
Hello to everyone else. I am thinking of you even if I don't mention you directly.
Have a great week everyone. Much love and happiness to you.
Mwah, mwah, mwah.
