Not Great, But Not Bad.

Thursday, February 7th, 2013.  CD24.

I just realized that I haven’t posted anything in a week!

…Not that you’re missing much.  Absolutely nothing has been happening over here.

Cycle day 24, and still no sign of ovulation.  I’ve depleted my entire stock of OPKs, and my temps are all over the place.  I have been sick with whatever bug has been going around – fever included, which has probably contributed to my crazy temps, and now I’m taking an antibiotic that makes me feel like poo.

So yeah.  I have no idea what is going on with my reproductive system.  Good times.

In other news, the husband repeated his semen analysis earlier in the week.  I got a call with the test results, and was quite pleased.

Our last SA, which was in February of 2012, showed quite a low morphology number:  2.  Dr. K wasn’t happy with this number, but assured me that it wasn’t a deal-breaker.

Our SA results from this week showed that morphology number to have risen.  To 12!


Not bad!


I know that these numbers can vary from test to test, and that the last time might have been a fluke, but it was nice to hear that the swimmers looked healthy and plentiful.  VERY plentiful, according to the andrologist who called me.  She didn’t have one negative thing to say, which was a relief.

Then, of course, there’s me.

I got my AMH results back today, and the nurse said they were normal, but low at 2.5.  She said it was nothing to be concerned about at this point, but still…

Obviously, I am the problem.  We’re still no closer to really knowing what that problem is, but I’m getting more and more tired of dicking around.

I just want a baby.  I don’t want to TRY any more.

Well, that’s not completely true… I just don’t want to FAIL any more.

I think we’ve come to the decision that we are going to attempt one injects-only IUI cycle, and then move on to bigger bills and better odds.  It’s scary, but it’s nice to have something of a plan in place.

Now if only I could figure out how long this current cycle is going to last…
