Well, we finally got all our test results in and it wasn't really what we wanted to hear. They figured out the problem and even managed to improve my husband's count a good bit but it still puts us in the "less than optimal" range for IUI. I tried so hard not to get my hopes up when they did more testing and actually figuring out what was causing his count to be low but of course, it didn't work. Hope went up to the point where I could actually picture myself holding a baby, again. So now our three options are IUI (though the chances of it working are really slim), IUI with a donor (don't think my husband would ever be able to accept that) or IVF. We had always said we weren't going to go down that route but now knowing it's the only real option with a decent chance of success is making us question it. We have no insurance coverage at all so the cost is a huge stumbling block. And my husband is really getting conflicted by the moral side of it. He's okay with everything except what to do if there are extra frozen embryos. We're Catholic so he's focusing on the "life begins at conception" thing and therefore, destroying the embryos after. Has anyone else had to reconcile their religious beliefs with IVF? How did you do it?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
