Welcome IComLeavWe'ers!

Just a quick post this morning for September's IComLeavWe kick-off! 

A bit about us...
DH and I are on TTC Cycle #6, though it feels much longer.  Our TTC journey began in January 2009, but was put on hold until I could have exploratory laparoscopy in March.  One adhesion was removed, no endometriosis found.  Great news, but we knew that we weren't out of the woods yet.  We hadn't even begun to explore possible fertility issues on DH's side.

We officially began TTC in March.  We set a date...if we weren't pregnant by month 4 we'd get an SA.  I know that seems really early to a lot of people.  But, we knew to start looking early since it took the in-laws many years to conceive due to MFI.  The fourth cycle came and went without a BFP.  We did get our first SA results this cycle though...

Answers are good.  They get you one step closer to your goal.  But, that doesn't mean they're easy to hear.  Our SA results definitely fit that mold!  Count is low, motility is low and morphology is 0% normal.  This is DH's first month on Tamoxifen/Arimidex combo that Dr. B hopes will improve the numbers.  We'll find out if we're making any progress at our next appointment on October 2.

What to expect during IComLeavWe...
Last week I was and Disney World for "business."  I dutifully went to my conference from 7-5 Mon-Wed, but spent every evening at a Disney park.  I have a problem...if Disney is open, I can't sleep.  So, I came back exhausted and sore beyond belief, but I had a BLAST (And learned a lot at my conference, too ;-).  I'm hoping to posts my trip report, including pictures this week.  Probably less TTC-related posts than distraction-related posts for the next few days!

That said, AF is due any day, so I'm quite certain there will be a TTC post or two (or three) scattered in!  I hope you enjoy you visit to Our Someday Family!  Please pull up a chair and stay awhile.  And, don't forget to say "HI!" while you're here!

I love Disney.
Looking forward to your pictures.
My DH just started Clomid for his Sperm (or lack there-of). Will keep my fingers crossed for good male drug response. :)

I adore Disney! Sounds like our journeys are similar. My Dh and I are dealing with MFI issues as well. Everyone keeps telling us that we should just "relax" because we have only been trying for 8 months...but I am Type A too!!

Happy ICLW
