Oh my word. Away for a day and I miss so much.

VERONICA - I totally agree with Kat. Only when the Doc has the full information in front of him should he have made that statement regarding the 2%. He needs to have DH's sperm analysis in front of him. I'm so sorry you had a crappy day because of that. I don't know if you remember or were on here when a member called Shellsbells was posting, but she struggled for years ( I think almost a decade or even more). Can't remember exactly for how long but is was AGES. Anyhoo, she lost some weight and went on Clomid and it was on her last cycle that she conceived twin boys (two eggs). Reason why I'm saying this obviously is because you can get there too, you might need some help but please disregard that number he has put in your head until you have the full picture. Shells was diagnosed with unexplained infertility. there is hope.

Becca - sorry for your loss.

Hey eoe. :hi:

Hi Ladies!! Sending plenty baby dust to all you TWWers!!

Veronica! Wow that is such a personal reading from Cheri22, I have never heard of her doing that and with such conviction!! Omg keeping my fingers crossed oh so tightly for you! Also, I wanted to mention that DH and I had been TTC 1 year longer then you, and our RE NEVER mentioned any 2% nonsense! All our doctor stated was that perfectly healthy fertile couples only have 15-20% chance. I don't think he can throw a # like that out there without further testing! And your DH may not have male factor! In our case, we had unexplained infertility b/c the doctor could not find any reason why we should not conceive. I think that it just takes longer for some couples! And well, success story right here. So let's say your doc is right, then our chances must have been same or lower having tried for so long. Well we're pg - so it can happen for you!! And it will. Keep your head up! Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers!

Thanks ladies!!

My DH is getting his SA done right now! When he saw how upset I was yesterday he knew he couldn't put it off any more. Just thankful we'll have answers- one way or another.

Kat- I KNOW!! I can't help but be excited after hearing her response to me. I can't imagine she would say something like that to me unless she was actually getting some sort of vibe or message from her "spirits"- I know it could all be bologna, but I get my hopes up every month no matter what... this is month is no different. I'll be sad if AF comes, just as usual... and if she doesn't show, well then I'll be one happy mama-to-be.

Yea, the more research I'm doing the more I don't understand WHY the heck my Dr told me those numbers!! He was nice, easy to talk to and seems knowledgeable. But I do think that 2% number being thrown around is some sort of way to get people to rush to IUI's/IVF's- after all... they are a business!

So AF is due today but my temp has gone up and never dropped below cover line and it usually does the day before AF arrives so I tested. Is this like a dye run our a shadow line or what? I feel like it should be darker if I was pregnant. I just don't want to get my hopes up just to see AF in a few days. Also this was. Fmu and sorry the picture sucks, I had to crop it twice

I'd say that is a positive! I have had faint lines on those test before, but never that dark. Do another test :)

That is definitely positive! Evaps are not that dark! How many dpo are you? Your line darkness looks fine!

I'm 13 dpo. AF was due today but my temp is still up so I tested. I took 2 more tests, different brands and they're all positive. I'm so shocked! I hope this one sticks.

Does anyone know how to start a new thread? I'm on my phone and can't figure it out and we usually start a new one by now lol.
