Oh, they do test it! But they don't run the whole swag of more comprehensive tests on it, like fragmentation etc. And some of the other things that are done on sperm (not an expert as we didn't have any to test). They just do the basic set of tests, was my understanding.

Crofty - congratulations to you on you BFP, hope you have had minor morning sickness and the next 7/8 mths are uneventful.
Peonies - how are you going? I have been reading each week hoping for an update (yes little stalkerish lol)
Nesskia - great to hear you are still lurking (bit like myself). Have you made any decisions?
hi to everyone else, I know there are a lot and I am here cheering you all on as I truly believe you will all be blessed with a little bundle - hopefully not too long in the near future.
AFM - we have made no decisions if we will do one last cycle or not, just enjoying life. However in saying that I am 3 days late and too scared to POAS and each day expecting AF to show as have been told by the FS that likely hood of a natural conception was just about 0! Keep thinking I am getting the AF cramps then they go and very oddly my nipples (yes sorry TMI) are very sore and consantly on high beam lol - too much symptom spotting which could be AF as well. Guess time will tell trying not to get excited as could just be delayed AF, and no idea if I ovulated and when, my accupuntureist on Friday said my pulse was different than usual and stronger.

I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend x
Alison oh I have everything crossed for you ..!! It would be such an amazing triumph to get your bfp this cycle . GL honey x
Mcg wishing you all the best in this next cycle. It does make you wonder about the sperm after all.
Nattie, how is your little emby going? You must be near the end of your 2ww?
I'm no sperm expert either but the more advance testing is reserved for when there is a male infertility problem. My DH got the whole shebang of DNA frag test and karyotyping etc because he had severely low sperm count. Men who have normal counts they usually don't suspect they have other issues but it does make you wonder when the donor hasn't had any luck yet.
Peonies how are you feeling anyway ? Any MS come your way yet?
Hello to everyone else, including Nessika x

Thanks for all the support, and thanks so much for asking after me Lillac & Alison. I've been thinking about you Alison. I have everything crossed for you! The ony way to find out is to test, you know!
Anyway, I am feelng well & have not had any sickness. I have had some times where I've felt a bit of nausea, but not enough to throw up. Have been pretty tired though. I have some good news. I am 12 weeks today & had my NT scan. Extremely low risk result, which is fantastic, especially given I'll be 38 next month. Everything looked perfect - we're sooo happy!
Hope everyone else is well. x
