Good News.

Well here’s something: D’s urologist called me at home last night at 9:30pm to give me the results of D’s semen culture. No signs of infection; No white blood cells. Now there's nothing wrong with D's sperm. So, hopefully ICSI will work. And hopefully we’ll have two perfect embryos to transfer. And hopefully at least one of those will implant. And grow. And become a real, live human being. Hopefully.

My RE did the wanding this morning, and as I anticipated, he thinks Monday will be retrieval day.

I’m starting to get scared and nervous and excited. Please, oh please, let this cycle turn out differently.

updated to add: today's instrux - reduce follistim to 75iu. E2 is 1316. Even the nurse said I'm getting there...

That is great news :) ICSI was the only thing that got me pregnant... So many male factor issues are just erased with ICSI. Yeah for ICIS! :D
