I have the post wash results back. It makes me more confident about this cycle :)



DH's sperm count was 42 million and his motility was 38%. Motility should be at 50% but it's better than last cycle. We also BD'ed twice before the IUI.

I'm going to try to keep up and respond to everyone as often as I can, it's just really hard right now, I feel like someone died and this process to get to acceptance is taking such an emotional toll on me. Sometimes I'm strong but other times I have to break down and remember this is reality and it totally sucks.



I'm grieving the loss of the children I could of had that were truly DHs and I didn't realize it would be this hard to cope. I wish I was having more strong times than sad ....

A friend just told me she is pregnant with her 4th unplanned child and wants advice on where to get an abortion. She knows we are trying for a baby and out of everyone she knows she asks me.

You couldn't have said it better Ashleigh. It DOES require a grieving process because like you said, you must mourn for those children you might have had. I wish so much there was something I could say that would make you feel better but I know that right that's just not possible. All I can tell you is grieve all you need and I promise it WILL get better. It just sucks really hard right now.



One thing that helped my husband and myself immensely was to plan a small vacation for the near future. I felt I really needed to get away and planning the trip provided a much needed distraction. I know your husband isn't up for traveling right now and you've recently exhausted your funds for his surgery but I hope maybe the two of you can have a little mini excursion for a weekend somewhere. *hugs* to you both! <3

I teared up reading this, thank you so much for the support and kindness you have shown. It really means so much to me! It's going to take a little bit of time but I know we will get there. I think a mini weekend getaway is a perfect idea :) thank you again!!!

Amelia already took the words out of my mouth. You have every right to grieve. My heart is breaking for you, I hate infertility.. I hate that you have to go through this. :(

I know how you feel.. I'm pro choice, I guess that's why all my friends turn to me when wanting/going through an abortion. Last year I took care of my friend after her abortion, it was hard because we would have been due a couple days apart if I got pregnant.

Thanks girl, I appreciate the support. I hate infertility too!!!! It's not fair any of us have to go through this.



I know everything happens for a reason but I'm having trouble trying to figure out what that reason is ...
