37 million!

Mr H is feeling like quite the stud this morning. 37 mil is our best post wash count yet. It was also his best pre-wash at 109 million. My only concern now is that my husband likes bad porn way too much. On the drive to breakfast after his 'appointment', he ranted and raved about the selections in the man room, that it was mostly just guy on guy. He went as far as to say it caused a de-rection and that I shouldn't get my hopes up for a good number. So now I'm a little worried about him.

Now the balancing act starts. That fine line between hope and realism. Hope brings about expectations....which just leads to disappointment. It is so hard not to be excited about this cycle. They're sure I had at least 3, maybe 4 follicles. Add the count results to that and how can a girl not get her hopes up?!? But I had such a hard fall earlier this month, I want to do a better job at not setting myself up to be hurt like that. They scheduled my beta for Jan 7...which will be 16dpiui...that is SOOOOO long. How on earth I am going to manage to wait THAT long? Time to make a trip to the dollar store I think

In other news, still fighting this stupid cold. Took a 3 hr nap today, hoping that kicks it out of my system. And I managed to come up with some holiday cheer last night. We had fun decorating the tree and I wrapped all of the presents. It does make me smile to see the tree all decorated, the stockings, and of course, the presents! Out to dinner and drinks with some friends that are back in town for the holiday. I'll be trying the subtle, nursing one drink thing. We'll see how it goes.

Wow, that does seem like a ways away. The time will pass though likely not quickly. Hang in there and I have high hopes for this cycle for you.

I hope your cold gets better soon! It sucks to be feeling sick, especially around the holidays. Merry Christmas!

Wow, that is a teriffic post-wash count!!! Congratulations! With all of those nice motile spermies, I'd really think that at least one can find one of 3 or 4 eggs! I hope that the holidays help the next 2 weeks go quickly! Yes, I'll need to go to the dollar store again in the near future, too. How exciting!!

We always have numbers like that too and I agree - it is so hard to not play your own numbers game!

It's like I'm a baby-making bookie sometimes with all of the crazy math I'm running in my head
