Welcome DecemberICWL

Zero,zilch,nada,nada,nothing,rein,niet,none. Bagel, donut.

Those are the results of Mr. Jem's third SA in less than a week. This is a huge disappointment after all we've been through. Not only do we have this sever male factor infertility to deal with, but also have repetative loss two biochemical pregnancies from the first IVF (fresh plus 1 FET). Then we had a BFN with no frosties south he second IVF in June. We changed clinics and I've been recently diagnosed with autoimmune issues, including NK (natural killer cells) which can be treated, but uggggh the cost and the hassle...

Those of you who have followed this blog know that 2010 was a super crappy year! Lost my grandma and our dear cat Fluffy. We're hoping that 2011 brings much more happiness. And for you all, too.

Tomorrow, I'll post some neat baby pics - of ME (since I don't have any pics if my own offspring).

Glad you all stopped by.

Oh, hon :( Are they referring him to a urologist? I, too, hope that 2011 is a better year for all!

I'm so sorry for everything you have endured this year. I so hope that Mr. Jem can, ahem, scrape together a few good swimmers for you guys. Here's to 2011 and the promise that it brings.

Hi Jem,

I recently stumbled upon your blog and I'm sorry for all that you have been through. I have a similar story, although I am only 27, but the journey has been the same. I really hope this next cycle is the one for you! Everyone who desires their own biological child should be able to concieve. I look forward to reading your story!

Here is my blog, too!

It HAS been a super crappy year, yet you are still forging ahead and still strong. I wish you all the best for the coming year -- especially that the crappiness is over.

I hope 2011 is a better year for you!!!

Ugh! That is a crappy year. People say there is nowhere to go but up. I say they haven't been through IF. JK. I'm hoping next year brings you everything you desire. :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I think being on progesterone supps is a total mid fuck (am I pregnant or is just the nasty oozy white shit making me feel this way) so I can't even imagine what IVF does to you. I wish you lots of luck, hope this next one is your sticky BFP!

Jaime said...

I am so sorry for the bad news! I will say some prayers that 2011 brings you much happiness and success in achieving your dreams.

Stopping by from ICLW.

Wow...I'm totally impressed with Mr. Jem....what a fantastic attitude. Here's to hoping that 2011 is WAY better than "crappy."

I'm so sorry to hear that. What a shitty end to a terrible year. It can only get better in 2011, right? (Please say yes).

I'm so sorry. I hope 2011 treats us all better than 2010 did. (ICLW #52)

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Def. we could all use more Insurance Coverage and it should be mandatory for IF.
I'm sending lots of sticky baby dust your way, and best wishes for your next IVF.

So sorry, 2010 has been the worst year ever for us as well! Hoping 2011 brings better things for us both! Thanks for stopping by my blog and your kind words. I have my ultrasound in the morning so we'll know then; I'm anxious to find out one way or the other.
Great Holiday picture by the way...very cute! Happy ICLW!!!

Sorry about the disappointing results. We also dealt with severe MFI. It's tough. I wrote about it a while back. My DH also contributed his own entry...

Anyhow, have you been suggested doing a DNA fragmentation test on the SA? It could indicate the reason for your losses and/or BFNs.
