My current status (loss ment)
Because of the house buying going so quick and all, everything TTC has been on hold. Last weekend though I discovered something brilliant! Fitocracy!
Here's how it started. I went to DH and I gave him an ultimatum. No more fertility treaments until he quits smoking. I pointed out to him that the one (verified) time that IUI worked was the one time his count was the highest before he started smoking. Since then they have all failed (well, the last on in Jan/Feb *may* have been a chemical due to faint tests around 9DPO but by beta HCG was 0). DH started smoking after that one successful cycle (he claims) due to the stress of the loss.
This is where Fitocracy comes in. I found the app as it was very popular on the app store for iPhone. It has quests and challenges and levels and points and I thought this would be perfect for DH! So, I gave him a challenge. He has to quit smoking by May 1 and that day we both start a Fitocracy challenge against each other for 3 months. It takes 3 months for new sperm to grow (he thought it was a few weeks, he was shocked to hear it takes 3 months!), and at the end whomever has the highest level acheived wins! We haven't agreed on who gets what if we win yet though.....
DH has wanted to quit for a while and the smoking grosses me out so much that I don't even want to be in the same bed as him anymore. I hate the smell on him, his clothes, hair, skin. I don't even want to kiss him or hold hands anymore because it makes me so ill. It's kind of hard to TTC when I don't want to be near him due to the smoke smell! We didn't even DTD this month yet, not since before my last AF. I'm not sure I even O'd this cycle thoug as I had negative OPKs from CD12 to CD17 that never got lighter at all.... Oh well, probably good as we move in 2 weeks!
Aside from that, I'm also starting accupuncture this Friday to go along with the 3 month challenge. I know most treatment plans are initially 12 weeks so it should time out well with the challenge.
I've been so blah lately with everything being on hold and with packing and moving and clutter. It's nice to have a new plan right now.
