I will start by saying thank you ladies for all of your wonderful advice and support.

DH and I had our first appointment with the RE yesterday afternoon, and I felt that it went very well. The doctor went over our medical history and confirmed the tests that my doctor and the Urologist DH went to. The RE started out by saying that with my past of regular cycles and positive OPK and good numbers from the tests that my OBGYN did, that he would start out with another SA for DH. This one will be more comprehensive, and done by a "Sperm Guy" that works in his office and that he trusts to do a good job. It was kind of a fun visit. The doctor is really funny, and put us right at ease. One thing that made me laugh and helped me to know that he will be the right doctor for us is is sense of humor. He was asking me about my periods and if they were regular, I said yes, then he said "DH, you will probably better be able to answer this question than your wife, but does she have PMS?" I looked at DH, saw him pondering, then I told him yes, that I have PMS. (Side note, I can get pissy with PMS, so I know that it is there.) The doctor looked at me, and started laughing and told me "Thank you for your honesty" He then told us that PMS shows that I am ovulating! Now, the only hard part will be getting DH to drive an hour up to the Clinic to do his SA. I want to get things moving now, and get the SA done before AF shows up again. In my mind, I have this plan that we will have our first IUI next cycle, and it will work, and we will be on our way. I know though that things do not go according to plan. If things always went according to plan, I would have an 1 year old right now. All I can do is leave these things in the hands of God, and do as much as I can to make things work out on my end.

Thank you ladies for all of your support, it really does mean a lot to me. I have only told my sister and my sil that we are seeing an RE doc. My sister I am sure has forgotten, as she is preggo right now, so that leaves my sil. I know that I could not get through these mentally hard times without the support of you ladies. Thank you so much!!!

His SA was a little concerning for my OBGYN, so he went and saw a urologist, that doctor told him that his numbers were on the low side of normal.
