Rae- good luck with the results! I'm praying for some good news for you!
Stinas- I'm glad you're getting support here. It really does help you to feel not so alone in this situation and it's frustrating when our men don't show their emotions. I need to check in with mine soon on this- we've not talked about this since the last time they took his blood and added another medicine.
Snd- wow that's progress... Sad your sil hasn't learned a thing from the last time. Hasn't she ever heard of getting herself tied or using birth control (pills or condoms or something to prevent)? Some people. I guess there's no words for describing them. I'm glad you're not taking it as hard as you used to. Hopefully you'll get good news soon enough and you'll get to experience being pregnant. You're right about one thing though- when you're expecting and other people in the family have had their babies, they're all gonna be getting rid of their baby stuff when you're ready for it. That's something to think about.
Hope y'alls are doing alright on this beautiful day. I'm doing just fine- it's just another day in my book- so keeping myself busy with laundry and homework and school. Too bad I go back to work tonight (and have 7 weeks left until my next break).
Thanks girls! I don't get it either! Like I said yesterday, haven't they heard of pulling out/condoms/bc... anything!?! Jesus! And from what I gathered, that wasn't the first abortion she had! They have a 14 month old already and said that was her second or third abortion since their baby was born!!!! Really?! And the bad thing is they know what we are going through! Not to the donor extent, but everything else! And do you think it made her think twice? Obviousally not! Karma is a you-know-what and if she keeps on her fertility might get taken away... just sayin!
Deafgal - it's hard to sit them down to talk. Sometimes it feels like they only talk when they want to talk. All men are stubborn. Lol
Snd - you would think after all those abortions her insides would be ruined or they would tell her wtf already. See I think they should only be allowed so many. People take advantage of everything, it's a shame. Wouldn't it be nice to take the fertilized egg and put it in yourself? People just don't understand what they have until they lose it I guess. Shame on them, but your right, karma does end up catching up to you!!!
Thanks, ladies! We got some good news. They found 'some' sperm in 3 out of the 5 samples taken. The urologist didn't have exact numbers but we have some to work with which is great! Now we just have to follow up with our RE to get started on IVF.
Remember, we only got about 30 from the mTESE and they only used 8 of those for 1 round of ICSI which produced the 3 blastocysts. I know people say it only takes one and that's true, but to have only 1 is a long shot! But you really don't need many xx
I really should keep on top of doing these more often based on your posts, but I never seem to remember so if any of you have updates for the front page or appt dates etc, just type it in a post and I will update xx
