DH is sick! He started feeling crummy last night and today he only worked half the day and came home. He's achey, feverish, and has a head cold.

He is a big believer in heat/saunas fighting infection. He will NEVER take tylenol or any kind of fever reducer; he'd rather let his body heat up and fight off the infection. I don't disagree with him that it's best to let the body fight something.

BUT I just wanted to BAWL today when he called and said he was leaving work, going to sit in the sauna at the gym and then heading home.

Am I terrible for worrying more about his SWIMMERS than him? I just so, so, so want us to have a good chance this month. BUT I can tell he feels really terrible, so I didn't want to say anything regarding no sauna...I know he feel like crap and I don't want him to be sick and feeling bad on Christmas.

I bit my tongue.

Do you think we're still okay, though? I mean, I know heat can lower sperm count but don't you think he'd still have SOME swimmers ready to go? We don't normally have MF or anything.

Married with two awesome 7 year olds, we're TTC with unexplained infertility.
Thank you sophiasmomma for my beautiful siggy!

I'd be crushing up some Tylenol and slipping it into dh's mashed potatoes or something. LOL. So I think I am worse than you. (I am bad bad bad!)

I think everything will be fine but I don't blame you for feeling this way.

UG! this is bad. how wicked can we women be I am with Patty, a little slip of something here or there can be no worse than a sauna hour!

My resolve: get in some nookie, or at lease "take care of his business" so his "pipes are clean" from those that were baked in the sauna. The new ones will be ready to go. If you are going to O in the next 3 or 4 days, I'd be screeching, but if not til after then, I wouldn't worry about it too much, just make sure you have ample opportunity to get those "old" swimmers out of the way

You are soooooo valid in your concerns!

My DH takes really hot baths all the time and his swimmers are just fine!!!!! To make you feel better, last winter Dh crashed my car in the snow and when he got home he was so mad and sad, and all I could think about was..."hmmmm I wonder if this means no sex this morning"....LOL We all do it, don't feel bad!!

I definitely agree with the "getting the old swimmers out of the way". It will hopefully get things nice and open for the new guys to replace them.

I think we have all been there, one way or another. Don't feel bad Jordan!

Yet another wonderful siggy by HeatherW.... thank you so much!!!

I wouldn't really worry about it! One sauna trip is not going to compromise his fertility and it can do wonders for a cold. Whenever I'm sick, I go to the sauna or sit in my bathroom with the water running super hot. So maybe he'll just get better quickly

I hope in the end it works out!! I know this has been a stressful few months for you, so I'm hoping the new year brings great news and maybe a sauna induced bfp
