After an 8 year battle with infertility and countless struggles, our family is finally complete. This blog chronicles the journey it took for us to start and build the family we always wanted. Background on the blog (started in 2012, just days before I found out the embryo transfer for our son worked).... I decided to start a blog after realizing I have only been able to make it through my TWW's (two week waits) with the help of Google and with the openness of other women suffering from infertility sharing their own stories and giving others hope. I have time and time again found my exact symptoms on other women's blogs and felt an overwhelming sense of calmness they provided me. I thought it was time to pay it forward and hopefully provide this same thing to other women on their own journeys.
(My blog started on 1/25/2012, but I have gone back and added our entire journey up until that point.)
Brave Mike gives his first ever semen analysis. Only 8.3% motile (normal range is 50-100%). Only had 18.3% normal form (normal range is 30-100%). Only had 24% live sperm (normal range is 50-100%). Also had white blood cells which suggest an infection.
