SA Results are in and a RE update.

So, We had the semen analysis done and we received the results and can I just say, there is NO reason I shouldn't be pregnant.  Here is the break down followed by a quick explanation of what each means.

376 million sperm/ML = 3ml was given
70% Motility (needed to be greater than 50%)
74% Morphology (Needed to be higher that 30%)
 Total count was 1.128million. In case I did that wrong.. 1 Billlion 128 Million. THATS ALOT!

Motility is how they in a straight line not in circles.
Morphology is what they look like. They have to have good heads, straight tails, they need to be healthy otherwise if they swim good but have double heads, small heads, or big heads they cannot penetrate the egg.
These are unbelievable results considering he had a vasectomy for 7 years prior to surgery. I am very happy with the results but it left me feeling like I was the problem

I met with the Infertility doctor on Monday and he said he doesn't feel like we cannot conceive on our own but would put me on Clomid if I wanted. I haven't decided on that yet. He did a ultrasound and said my uterine lining was REALLY thick. Like so thick he confirmed I was in fact pregnant last month and didn't clean everything out when I had my period. He wants me to come back in on Cycle day 2 or 3 to do another sonogram to see if my uterine lining is shedding appropriately. If not, I have to have a D&C. Husband is leaving next weekend for anywhere between 3-6 weeks for work. I am not sure how I feel about a D&C while hubby is gone. I was hopeful that I was pregnant this month but it turns out I am not. So, on to another cycle and praying for another day that I will be blessed with a test with a double line!

The day of truth!

Matthew 21:21

Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done.

Today is the day my husband will have a Semen Analysis to see if his reversal was a success or a failure. I cannot even begin to explain how I feel! I am so nervous, yet hopeful. I am scared yet at peace. I know the Lord has a plan for me and for us but I would just like a glimpse at what it is. Today is that day. I know we had return of sperm so in the medical community that is considered a successful surgery. To me a successful surgery would be return of sperm that can give me what my heart longs for...a baby! I barely slept, I cant eat and I feel shaky inside. Like at any moment I could burst into tears. I pray that the results are good and I pray we are blessed.

I have an appointment with a RE (Reproductive Endocrinologist/Infertility doctor) on Monday. If everything is good for my husband then I want to make sure everything is good for me. Here's to more praying and realizing my faith is what will get us through! All it takes is the faith the size of a mustard seed to move a mountain. I think my faith is bigger than that. God is good ALL THE TIME!

I am a 30 some thing wife and mother of 3 amazing, busy children. Trying to keep the chaos at bay and run a smooth happy household. We are currently Trying to Conceive baby #4. We are struggling with self induced infertility issues. My husband had a vasectomy on 2004 after our 3rd child was born. We flew to Oklahoma to have it reversed. You can find that in my original blog Surgery Trip! I'm starting a new blog for our new life. I felt my old one had way to much of my past life and language and I want to close that chapter. We are a Christian household trying to raise our children up in the ways of the Lord. Making the transformation was hard but also the very best decision we ever made. Follow our family in our trials and smiles, Infertility battle and simplifying the chaos.
