Welcome Mandy, BabyC actually ended up conceiving a few months after that post. I'm sure she's already had her baby by now to be honest. Pretty much everyone on this thread has already had their babies except for the last few of us. I am also in the unexplained category and have had 2 IUIs fail now. I'm debating whether or not to do injectibles for the 3rd and last IUI.

Green I always appreciate your support. I'm sorry you've reached the apathy stage. It's a hard spot to be in. You still want it just as much, but the problems (whatever they are) feel insurmountable at times.

If you created a TTC1 thread in the LTTTC forum I would join. I do get frustrated with people who have been trying 1-2 months popping in here and then disappearing shortly after becoming pregnant. I'm happy for them, but it sucks that it's never one of us lol

I looked for a lttc #1 thread and didn't see it. I've been following belles journal but how are my other ladies doing??

We're now on 16 months of trying with no second line in sight. I stopped tracking in November. Took December off, and had one anov cycle last month. So I'm guessing about 14 cycles now. No question now that we have a problem.

Husband started his job this week (after 14 months of unemployment). Thank bloody Christ. He's much much happier. And now that we have steady income again, testing is back on the table. But...

I don't think he's serious enough about it. I don't think he'll ever go get tested. Its so awkward for them. I guess it's time for me to go find a gyno in my new town. After I take that first step and have an initial appt to discuss infertility, I'm not going anything else until he gets a SA done.

Yaaaaay....

I'm sorry Green that you are officially in the unexplained infertility category. I think getting testing done is a positive step. Do you know whats more awkward then "finishing" in a cup? All of the testing and subsequent "treatment" that we ladies have to go through. Never did I think I would have two people standing over top of me with my bottom bared talking about how they're going to get me pregnant before popping one of those god awful internal ultrasound wands up my hoo ha. And thats not even the worst of it LOL. If you pursue treatment, your DH will be finishing in a cup many many times over, so surely he can do it to get things checked out.

I'm glad to hear that he is working now! That will do wonders for his self esteem and mood I think. I know my own DH is absolutely miserable when he is unemployed. How are things on the job front for you?

If you are wanting to join a LTTTC thread you can try out the Clomid Buddies thread that I'm on. I don't think there is anyone left there who is on clomid/femara anymore lol. Everyone that was is already pregnant, and the few of us who are left are pursuing IUI/IVF. It's a pretty welcoming group of ladies and most of us are working on number 1

Hi ladies! We are still trying. Found out my DH has low counts, bad motility, et cetera. We start our first IUI next month with Clomid and the trigger shot! One of us are going to conceive gosh dangit. Lol

Hey Puma, sorry to hear about the SA results. Thats fantastic that you are going to start IUI next month though! IUI can work really well for those with mild male factor. So excited for you!

DH and I are still on a break from ttc. We did 2 IUIs (May and June) and then July just ntnp. In july I developed a fairly large ovarian cyst that prevented me from Oing in August (had an anovulatory cycle, bummer!). Now I'm seeing a naturopath and have started taking a bunch of herbs to hopefully balance my hormones out. We aren't going to ttc while taking the herbs (so for 2 months) just in case there are any contraindications for pregnancy. Then once we get the go ahead we'll do our last IUI. We're still unexplained but naturopath seems to think my lower estrogen and therefore thinner lining is the culprit (what I've been saying all along). She seems confident that she can treat it, so I guess we'll see what happens.

Its pretty crazy how time goes.

I know I'm not the only one here who thinks, gee, I wish all I had to do was Orgasm to find out if there was something wrong with me!! NO! Women have to go through all sorts of crazy testing (blood, up the vag, surgery!), and all a man needs to do is cum in a cup boy, please. Find something else insignificant to complain about and just cum in this damn cup for me. Poor thing, NOT!

LOL Z that sums up my thoughts on the manner precisely!

Well I'm CD 2 on my 27th cycle since starting trying (oy). We're back to trying naturally this month, which the help of chinese herbs. Guess we'll see what comes of it. I'm aiming to do our last IUI in November.
