On my lunch break, I just went and bought 6 new bras at a lingerie boutique that is going out of business. It was a high end boutique, and she was selling them all for $20 each!
I also went to GNC and bought fertility supplements for both DH and I. We've never taken any, but it can't hurt to try. We're going to have to wait a while to save up to try again, so I figure we should do everything in our power to give us the best chance.
Our main problem is low sperm count. For my DD cycle in 2009 his count was 3 million, this time it was 2.2 million. I think there were some motility issues as well. I think morphology was fine. I have never been diagnosed as anything, but I have long cycles and my FSH was either 9 or 10, which I think is a little on the high side, but they said anything under 12 was fine. I just wish so badly that we had had some frozen embies from this round that we could transfer. It would be quick and I wouldn't have to go through the long, miserable, and expensive process of egg retreival again.
I really love my RE and everyone at the clinic, but I can't help but wonder if I should seek out another opinion. We're 1 for 3 on treatments, and neither of my 2 fresh cycles have ever lead to a BFP, only our FET, which makes me think that we may need assisted hatching like they did on my FET. When the RE could identify the 2 leading embies, he moved for a 3dt, so I don't know if any would have made it to day 5, as the other three that fertilized didn't.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
DH: 32, Male Factor

IVF #1 - BFN
FET #1 - BFP!!! DD born Sept 2010
IVF #2 - Chemical
Next: Work on improving DH and my fertility while saving up for next round. Why does something that we want so badly have to also be so expensive?
