No words

I have no words. I'm blown away right now!!!

First I really really liked my new doctor. He was awesome. He went over all my history and he did drop a pretty huge bomb on me. He said he doesn't know that the HBA test (sperm penetration test) isn't right. He said that test is really old and he hasn't seen it done in years. That explains by all the nurses I've talked to don't know what it is. He said that hubbys morphology is low and that is what he's more worried about. 4 and above is normal and hubbys is .5. Hubbys test was a 3 in 2010 and the thinking the .5 could be wrong as hubby didn't feel good the day he had the test done. The doctor said that in his experience a level between 1-4  pregnancy rates were the same with IUI as above 4 it's when it's under 1 that pregnancy rates are pretty much nothing. He wants hubby to do the SA on Friday morning and for us to IUI with his sperm. MY HUSBANDS SPERM!!! I'm blown away. I can my husbands baby. There are no words.

Hubby is pissed he's got to do the SA again and if it's crappy then we can always go back to using a donor but as of right now we have a shot of our own baby. The doctor said that he's even willing to do IUI with his level as low as .5.

Plan is to do clomid as he thinks it's better at giving you more eggs, it I don't have 3-4 eggs then we will move on the femara then follstim. I should start af anydays and well get rollin. I just hope and pray hubbys number is over 1!!!!! I don't want to get excited as with IUI we only have an 8-10% and about 40/50% over 4 cycles but things are looking better. I'm just shocked!!!!!


  1. I'm so glad that it went so good for you. Hopefully his test results are better!

  2. That is great news!! I hope the SA gives great results and you can get-a-rollin'!

  3. Wow! Glad you went to that doctor!

  4. That's great news! Is your DH's sperm less than 1 million? Mine has this and we're told only IVF w/ ICSI will work but if there's another option I would love to know. I will suggest IUI to my RE next time. Thanks!

  5. Yay!!! I'm so excited and happy for you!! Btw, giving Clomid to men can help with sperm too, did your doctor mention that? Maybe you could ask. I am really keeping fingers crossed!!!

    1. Thats only if it's count of the other m I can't think of the name right now.

  6. Sounds great! - Keep us updated!

  7. That is SO exciting, I am so happy for you guys :) Keep us posted on what happens!

  8. That's great news! And Em is proof that you don't need "great" sperm to produce a perfect baby, just some that are passable!

    Good luck and I hope it happens soon for ya'll!
