Been putting this off for a while, but I guess it's time to b*tch a little. My wife and I have been trying to get knocked up for almost two years now. Both of us have been checked out and everything comes back fine. Have tried fertility drugs and IUI (think using a turkey baster to put my stuff closer to her stuff) a couple times with no success. Specialist says to give it a couple more trys before considering the next option. First, this is starting to cost a lot of money (and any further options start to cost A LOT of money). Of course none of this is covered by insurance. Second, because it is starting to cost a lot of money we don't want to do ANYTHING that may reducing our chances by even a fraction of a percent. That means no drinking, no riding, no running outside (due to heat and possible SLIGHT decrease in number of my swimmers), no boating (heat and alchohol), weeks of no exercise for my wife after IUI while waiting to see if it took. This really blows - having to pay for something that is supposed to be free and having zero success and then having to sacrifice things you like when no one else has to sacrifice anything. That's all.
