Normal

Results of the chromosomal tests on E reveal ... he's normal. (Only chromosomally, I reminded him.) My chromosomal and immunological tests are .... normal. We are collectively ... normal. Tomorrow I go back to the RE to discuss my new protocol, which I'm sure will be ... normal. Kidding. I won't feel like I'm getting any bang for my buck if they don't mix it up somewhat. So it looks like I'll be breaking out the box of meds again come June. And I've so been enjoying my alcohol and caffeine and puncture-free tail...

And in other news, I must share the most wonderful of wonderful news. Rebeccah from http://chasingachild.typepad.com/ is pregnant. Rebeccah, for those of you who don't know her, just had her second failed IVF (an IVF during which she studied for and passed the bar exam) and was moving on to donor eggs. Surprise, she's pregnant on her own (ok, I'm sure her husband helped) between cycles. I didn't know people could get pregnant without needles and 3 other people in the room. Please go give her well wishes!

Well, I don't know what's better: normal but not working out as you'd hoped, or abnormal. I guess normal. Sigh.

I am so thrilled that the results are normal! I know its sometimes even hard to get that result though, cause you wonder what the frick is keeping us from getting pregnant. We are still awaiting our results...
Thanks for passing on that link--thats awesome for her!

I am of the belief normal is good.

And shitty luck was the culprit. At least, it's how where I lay blame for all crappy-related pregnancy-like things!

I'm so glad the results came back normal. I know it would be nice to have an answer, but I think maybe it's better to know there aren't issues genetically. Just shitty luck as Jen said.

Really hoping this next cycle will do the trick for you!

Yep. Normal is good! I hope your cycle in June does the trick!


And... ya mean she got pregnant by having S. E. X.? People can do that????

Sounds like SOOOO much more fun than my current method!
