I hope everyone found their Christmas spirit

It took me a while but I finally found mine and was able to enjoy a great long weekend with hubby and a wonderful Christmas day with family. Reflecting on the ups and downs of IF this weekend, I realized that last year (December 26th) I received a BFP from my 10th IUI then miscarried a week later. I guess that is why I had such a hard time with the holiday this year. I was bleeding last NYE and sat on my couch feeling horrible. I hope this NYE is fun and makes up for last years. I can only look forward and pray that 2011 brings good things for all of us!

We got hubby’s results back from his SA that he had to have redone for IVF #2. Not really sure why they had the need to retest because we had to do ICSI for the last IVF so why make him test again when we already know we need ICSI for this one...sorry…I am getting side tracked. His results are back and they are a bit surprising. Last year his KSM Morphology was at 6% (15% is normal)…now a year later it’s at 0%. Yes, that is a big fat ZERO – WHAT THE HELL? He is taking all his vitamins and we have not changed anything. I am not really sure why the change. I just hope that they can pick out a couple normal swimmers for us to use!

On a side note we took our puppies to the dog park last night. They love it there and are very social with dogs and people alike! My dog Blue instantly found a new bff at the dog park…a little boy who was about 7 years old or so. Blue didn’t leave his side and tired himself out playing fetch with this boy. It brought a tear to my eye that my dog loves kids so much. I had to ask the little boy to walk us to the door when we were leaving because Blue wouldn’t come with me. The kids dad asked when we would be back at the park so they could play together again. So sweet!

My Boy Blue!


  1. did you RE change labs for the SA? after dh's varicocele surgery last year, he's been getting SA's every 3 months. #2 was worse than #1 and we were like wtf?? turns out they switched to a different lab that is MUCH more strict, so the numbers didn't actually go down. a different person reading the results might just be the difference? i hope hope hope this is the case for you. regardless, yaay for the man (or woman) who invented ICSI. that's all i can say. have a great rest of holiday :o) xoxo.

  2. 0%??? That's crazy! I'm sure they'll be able to find the few good swimmers during your second IVF. My husband has 1% morphology and I was concerned, but my RE said that is more than enough when doing ICSI. I'm assuming 0% is really like 0.001%, and the embryologists can work with that!

    P.S. Blue so so cute. :)

  3. I'm glad you were able to enjoy Christmas with your hubby and family.

    I can't believe your hubby's number came back at 0% when nothing has changed! I hope the number will get better before your next cycle.

    I love how your furbaby has a playdate now. I'm sure he loves the attention.

    Hope you have a great New Year! May you be blessed with all that you stand in need of!

  4. We have a dog park a couple miles from where we live and our dog loves going! Glad your puppies enjoyed it and you're able to enjoy this holiday season!

  5. I am sorry to hear about 0 morphology result. My husband also had 0 morphology. Strange thing is that he had some number on his first result, and the second one showed 0 from the same lab. The two results were only weeks apart.
    Hopefully, doctors can make things work out just fine for you.
    I try not to be superstitious, but your dog loving the boy may be a sign that he is sensing an arrival of a new baby.
    Have a beautiful New Year!

  6. OK so I just cried a little when I read that your fur baby found a little human friend at the park. Dogs and kids are freaking awesome :) Cute, cute, cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
