The Red Witch

AF showed, again.

TTC has defeated me. It seems like no matter what we do, I am not going to be able to get pregnant without medical assistance. That's a tough pill to swallow.

Mr. Sassy Bud still has not gotten his S/A. I know the available appointment times are very inconvenient for him and his work schedule, but if he really wanted to get it done, he would make time. I am not going to force this on him. He was the original proponent of us beginning to TTC so I know it is not because he doesn't want children. I really feel that I have gone through enough so far between the charting, bloodwork, u/s, and HSG. It's his turn now.

So, I guess that leaves us at a standstill. I have stopped charting for now, there really is no point. I know that I'm ovulating, I know approximately when I O and how long my LP is if I need to give that information to a RE at some point. I've done all that I can.

Sorry Sassy. I think it's hard for men to entertain the idea that the failure could be on their part and hope that it'll just happen. Hopefully he'll get it done. See if he is willing to take the entire day off and do the SA and do a skip day with you and relax the rest of the day and do something fun like going to Dave and Busters (it's great going on a weekday when barely anyone is there).

You're right...at this point you have done everything you can do; at last until he gets that S/A completed. If his S/A comes back normal than you make your RE appt. and go from there. If it comes back abnormal you've got a starting point.

We began trying to conceive when I was 29. At first, we thought it was my problem, but lo and behold we were diagnosed with male factor infertility...on the moderately severe side.

We've had many losses, but in the end had a successful 1st attempt at IVF/ICSI when I was 34. I delivered a beautiful baby girl just 3 weeks shy of my 35th birthday.

Now, 6-years later I have a 5 1/2 year, a 3-year old "bonus baby" boy, and I am expecting my THIRD baby in late July. Yup, another bonus baby BOY!

Hang in there...give him some time to process what needs to be done. I know that's easier said than done!

Best wishes,

Thank you both for your encouragement and suggestions. I'll update once we get somewhere with the S/A.
