On the IF Front...

DH has his appointment for next Wednesday to give another sperm donation...this time, it will be frozen in anticipation of our upcoming IVF cycle.

I'm nervous and giddy at the same time about this cycle. I'm so excited to be moving forward again, to be doing something. Instead of feeling like the time is just sailing past us. But I'm also very nervous. We had a horrible experience last time, and while I know this RE is 100x better, and I've read posts from women who have seen her, I still can't help being a little weary. I mean, we have a limited amount of insurance coverage, and IVF wouldn't even be possible for us without it. I felt like I wasted insurance dollars last cycle, and I just don't want to feel that way again. I really want this to work and to be able to give DH the opportunity to be a father.

OOH you are moving right along! I understand the apprehension...but I think that is part of the territory with infertility...you guess and second guess ever experience and compare this to that...its a hard cycle to break!

Think positively when you can...and when you can't...vent here we all understand!!!

That sucks you feel like it was a wasted cycle last time. totally a bummer.

I had a question though .. Why is your husband freezing a sample? Do they make everyone have a frozen sample as a "just in case:, but will still want a fresh sample on ER day?
