Mr. Unexpected and I have been TTC since April 2009. We got pregnant in July 2009, but unfortunately found out at 12 weeks that the baby had stopped growing at around 8 weeks. It's been a year since we lost our baby, and we haven't had another positive pregnancy test. We've just started seeing a RE, and we found out I am hypothyroid, so now I am on meds for that. I also have a clotting disorder, and will need to start Lovenox injections with my next BFP. We have some more testing to do this week, and this cycle we are also trying Clo.mid with ultrasound monitoring and an HCG trigger shot. At this point, I can barely even imagine what it would be like to get pregnant again. Isn't it amazing how a journey like this can suck all the hope out of you?
In more recent news, I (sort of) got the results for Mr. Unexpected's semen analysis yesterday. I know his total count was 40 million (with normal being >40 million), his motility was 65% (with normal being >50%), and his forward progression score was 2++ (with normal being, from what I can tell >2). The nurse said it all looked good, but it seems to mostly look borderline... I don't know. I requested a paper copy, and I will talk with the doctor about it at my ultrasound appointment on Monday.
I think part of my problem is that with so many things wrong with me (hypothyroid, clotting disorder, late ovulation, luteal phase spotting), I would just be so much more comfortable if everything on Mr. Unexpected's end was just absolutely, clearly, obviously amazing. A crappy reproductive system meeting a mediocre reproductive system just doesn't seem like a sure thing for getting the job done. Besides, what else would I do if I didn't manufacture things to worry about out of thin air?
