Momma Bear TTC #2 Baby Bear @ 37yo


I have a parenting journal and all I've been talking about is TTC, I feel like that's not fair to Baby Bear #1. So I'll document our journey to #2 here.

#1 took us a little over 2yrs because we spent a lot of time looking at me and not working on OH. He ended up on Clomid and we got our very 1st BFP right in the time frame the doctor said the Clomid would start working. We've been trying for #2 now since March. If OH's sperm count is better, we'll keep trying until Jan, if no BFP then we'll start looking at me again too to make sure nothing has changed with me.

OH:
Semen Analysis - (normal >14mil/mL, >39% motility)
06/2013 - 18 mil/mL, 29% motility
10/2013 - 15.30 mil/mL, 65% motility
09/2014 - 3.75 mil/mL, 48% motility
12/2014 - 4.93 mil/mL, 20% motility
12/2014 - 4.66 mil/mL, 60% motility
07/2017 - 34 mil/mL, 47% motility

Tesosterone - (8.7 - 25.1 - normal range)
12/2014 - 1.60 (low)
01/2015 - 1.54 (low) Started clomid
02/2015 - 7.14 (norm )
07/2017 - 6.30 (low) Started clomid
08/2017 - 12 (norm)

07/2017
Liquefaction - Incomplete
Rapid & Linear - 5%
Viability n/a
Normal ovals 1%
20% pyriform

FSH - 0.7-11.1 - normal range
12/2014 - FSH - 4.1 (norm)
02/2015 - FSH - 8.1 (norm)
07/2017 - FSH - 5.85 (norm)
08/2017 - FSH - 10.07 (norm)

01/2015 - OH started on Clomid
07/2017 - OH started on Clomid

Symptom watching


In July OH was finally seen and started on Clomid again. He doesn't repeat his SA again until October but his blood work is showing improvement all ready.

I was reading that new sperm can be generated between 42-90 days, so we're in that window now and our timing was really good this cycle, so I'm really hopeful. Being hopeful sucks because it sure hurts when AF shows up.

So here I am, about 3dpo and ready to pee on all the sticks!

I thought I had missed my chance this cycle because I didn't have my usual OV signs which were due right around the same time as finals. So, I just thought stress from school caused a delay. I then remembered that a couple months earlier I was late oving too. I decided to look up my averages and noticed I OV late every other month! So according to that I was able to pinpoint this OV, it matched up perfectly! I don't remember if that was the case back when I had BB#1 but I did have long cycles back then too. I OV between CD18-23.

Sometimes I'm in the mood to symptom spot and record everything and sometimes I don't So I'll save this spot for that.

Mar - BFN
Apr - OV CD22, BFN
May - OV CD19, BFN
Jun - OV CD23, BFN
Jul - OV CD 18, NTNP, AF
Aug - OV CD 23, BFN

5dpo, can I test yet?! Lol The thought does cross my mind but it's not at the point where it's all I can think about. Maybe I'll try to hold off until this coming weekend.

6dpo, I think I'm going to make it through the night! lol No real symptoms. I seem to be in a better mood than I usually am at this point in my cycle. I noticed the same for my only BFP cycle.

Welcome, ladies! Thanks for keeping me company.

7dpo! I made it another day! I currently don't feel like testing. Hope that lasts all night. Tomorrow will be hard because I'm off. But I'll have BB and he doesn't let me go to the bathroom alone, so it's hard to pee on sticks. I might just make it until Friday. Maybe. Not counting on it lol
