Thanks for your comments and support. It's comforting knowing I'm not in this boat alone. I just wish none of us had to be.

Unfortunately, everyone who knows that you are trying to become pregnant will tell you a story about someone who also had fertility problems but got pregnant - as if that is what you want to hear - somehow everyone becomes an expert on the subject. IT is perfectly normal to feel hopeless and upset. I find the spring particulary hard - it seems like everyone is pregnant. Try to find one friend to talk to - and don't expect most of your friends to understand. Use this board for support - there is also an inferiltiy chat room at Fertile Thoughts which can be very helpful. Hanfg in there and abe inspired by the fact that male factor has the most succesful outcomes.

: : I've been reading the postings here for about a month now, but have never posted. I'm new to this whole infertility thing. It's my worst nightmare coming true. Our problem is a low sperm count complicated by the fact that my husband doesnt have a left vas deferens. We're going to be attempting an IUI this cycle. It seems like absolutely none of my friends or family really have the first clue about what were going through. I was at a wedding a couple of weeks ago and right in front of me, my husbands aunt started asking my mother in law how we were doing with our Infertility problem. She then went on to talk about another couple at the wedding who were told they would never be pregnant and are now 4 months along. Not what I really cared to hear about right then and there. Definately a case of wrong place and wrong time. It seems like everyone is pregnant but me. Thanks for listening, and thanks to the doctors out there helping us out. I'm a nurse, so I know how busy you are.
