wow, so it looks like nobody's here. I know most everyone I started this journey on is pregnant now, but it's kinda sad that nobody has posted in almost a month.
Ok so, anyone have updates?
My journey isn't going so well. DH went for another SE to see if the clomid (along with Fertilaid vitamins) was helping at all. His count is back down to 5mil per ml. One good thing though, his mibility and motility are all normal, and I think that's probably due to the vitamins he's taking. So back in december (I think) his count went up from 5mil to 35 mil. his doc thinks the reason for that is because he was taking antibiotics for an ear infection, and the infection was decreasing SC. There's also a possibility he has a low grade infection of the prostate, which a lot of guys have apparently. SO, since DH has an infection right now, there's a good chance that it's the cause of all this crap.
So this is pretty much our last resort. If this doesn't work we might have to stop trying

I hope there are others who have better updates

Hi Katie! It hurts my heart to see this board so quiet! I think of you often and continue to pray that your struggles end with a new baby to love. Do you know anything more about the prostate infection? I've never heard of such a thing, but hope it's an easy fix.

I wish I could provide more support, but wanted you to know I'm still thinking of you. Hugs momma! Hang in there.

I still check in here to see how everyone is doing, and I agree its sad to see the board to quiet I mean, if it were because no one needed it, that would be one thing. I think partially it may be b/c this board can be hard to find.
((((hugs)))) Katie. I am sorry, I know how frustrating it is to not have answers, or have partial answers, or just guesses from the doctr. I hope the infection clears up and that all reports are good after that.

no you don't know how frustrating it is, but that's ok. I know you're just trying to help.
I'm so depressed that I can barely get off the couch. I can't sleep at night because I don't get enough excersize and I drink too much. I hate going out with friends because I'm afraid someone id going to mention babies or ask me how my stupid pregnant sister is doing. My husband has barely touched me in the last month. An we're still paying bills from when i was pregnant over a f**king year ago. I F**king hate my life and theres nothing I can do about it.

Hugs Katie. While I don't know your whole story it is very hard and but we have all had a similar pain with having a loss and struggling to get pregnant. Some get lucky some don't. I am worried about you and your DH both. What came of the tests that he had? Its hard to pay on the bills for things that didn't go as planned. It takes forever and is a constant reminder. Have you had anymore testing done? Have you been seeing anyone about the depression? Depression is incredibly hard and when you add alcohol to the mix it makes it worse since its a depressant. As you probably already know that. I remember that horrible feeling when people would ask about babies and when we were going to have them. Or for months after my mc having people ask how my pregnancy was going and I just wanted to curl into a ball and die whenever it happened. Exercise did really help me when I was down. I have asthma and that was always my excuse as to not exercising enough. But really when I started while I had to go slow at first I would just put on my ipod or whatever I had with me and I would blare it and walk the track or at the park for as long as i felt I could. Sometimes it would be just a few times around and then I got to where I could walk one lap and jog the next lap for 2 miles before I got pneumonia. I can tell you though I walked my first whole marathon (not my brightest idea but I finished) and this year now 2 years later I did my 1st half marathon walking and jogging. I also ended up losing about 18lb during this time (I am 4'11" so thats a lot of weight for a short person).Not saying go out and do a marathon it was just a goal i decided to set for myself. The exercise and blaring music made me stop thinking for the short time. I stopped drinking long before my mc and then after a bunch of things happen about 4 mo after my mc I did drink a 1/2 or less of a bacardi silver and it made me feel ill. I haven't touched anything since. My father is an alcoholic.I didn't want to become like him. I have still been considering going to counseling after my abusive childhood, rapes, mc etc.. that has happened over my lifetime. Its an internal struggle I still have and I often have nightmares as a result. While I am not a huge counselor fan I think you just have to find the right person to talk to.But if your having a hard time doing it alone maybe its time to reach out. I know its hard to think positive when you have lived so much pain but there is a light at the end of the tunnel you just gotta keep going. Sometimes that tunnel seems like forever when its pitch black but you will find that light. You can take the advice or not with a grain or salt but know there are a few of us that lurk often hoping and praying that things are getting better for you all and we are always there for you even if we aren't posting. Best wishes.

I'm very sorry for all you are going through. My husband has a lower sperm count, so I understand exactly what you are going through.We have ttc for almost seven years next month. It is the hardest, most heartbreaking thing I've had to deal with it. Sending lots of hugs and prayers, and please know you are not alone.

I'm very sorry if my answer came off as a pat answer. I know we all have had different journies, and you are right I have never been in your same situation. I just meant that after losing our first baby, and delivering him and meeting with the geniticist and my OB and a specialist, and still not getting an answer to why he had all these undiagnosed issues, I was depressed, scared, heartbroken, and confused. I was coming from that memory and just meaning that I know it is a dark difficult time and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

know..you didn't do anything wrong. It's been a long time since I've been happy or hopeful, and lashing out probably wasnt a good idea. I want something to change soon because this is so draining and I can't do this anymore. one setback after another and all my friends and family have given up on encouraging me and helping me. nobody will talk to me because they feel that I shoul have gotten over it by now, and they don't know why im so upset about having difficulty conceiving because i have 3 kids. I just don't know what to do.
