Feebee - CD2I'm feeling strangely positive about this cycle for 2 reasons:
a) AF is really heavy and an old wives' tale says that this is the system "clearing itself out" in anticipation of pregnancy - this actually happened in the month before my pregnancy last summer.
b) As there's nothing much wrong with me, I don't need to worry about forcing myself to relax, so will pretty much do as I like this cycle - it's all down to DH's swimmers now.
If I was still playing the numbers game, I would be aware that this is the last cycle
a) before we (not me, "we"!) become officially infertile
b) that will give me a baby before ANOTHER birthday,
but because I have chilled out I will not be concerned with these things.
I heard DH on the phone to his mum saying "my sperm are bad", poor love. To be fair to him though, he is completely pragmatic about this and is confident that his next SA will show a different story - we did get pregnant six cycles ago after all, so it can't be that bad. It helps for one partner to take a practical approach when the other has, ahem, impatient drama-queen tendencies.
