OK --- one step forward at a time.... I would look at everything the RE isn't -- diet, exercise, sleep quality....

Build yourself a healthful life with the same rigor you have used to build healthy finances -- in other words, start small and continue slow and steady... Remember when you told me you cried at your first few budget meetings? You might need to cry over this a bit as well, but don't let it stop you... You have to assert the control and be honest about how/when/why you increase your family.
Oh, and a second opinion can't hurt too much...

I know my armchair quarterbacking isn't going to win you the superbowl, but I know the pain of poor medical diagnosis and I know how much better you feel when you have a greater sense of control and options.

So, I send my love and support...

and right now, just a hug to Andy, too!!

Deanna, I know exactly what you mean. Bryan's face when we sat in the doctors office and found out why our IVF had failed will be in my memory forever.

Every husband wants to make their wife happy. When a man finds out that they are the cause for so much heart ache and pain it is a huge blow. He has watched your heart break with every loss and now knows the reason it has all happend. I think your right in recognizing his pain and assuring him that your a family together.

Just give him love and time to sort out his own feelings. (((hugs)))

Thanks, ladies.

It's the same feeling I have when the girls are sick, in the hospital, having surgery, etc. I'd do just about ANYTHING to make it go away. His feeling of inadequacy, the hurt he feels, his ego blow, etc. I'd take it all on myself if I could.

We'll get through this, I know. It's definitely NOT the end of the world for us. Just a major knock backward.

Get the testing done with the urologist and go from there.. no need to jump ahead and worry over something that may not happen.
