and the doctor ordered the NK cell Assay for $350 and he also suggested the DQ Alpha for both me and my DH for $230 each. Sorry I am so money focused but we have already spend about 50K over the past 3 yrs so money is tight and no baby reward yet.

I need to order the kit and go back to my maternal specialist and see if his nurse will draw my blood and then we have to overnight it to the lab in Chicago.

Thanks for all of ya'lls support.

All these little amounts add up and you're not the only one sick of the damage. Hoping that you get some answers and a plan soon.

Well, not the money part of it, but good that they're looking for clues. Best of luck!

Are you kidding? This process is a financial nightmare. Give yourself a break! And I hope the next time is the one - really hoping for you! xx

He says there is no way at all that we come from similar bloodlines. I am full Irish and he is all over the place with 50% Italian and then some scottish and german in him. How do I convince him???

when all was said and done according to SIRM. Out of 12-15 guys at Fairfax who had had it done, maybe 3 were ok for me to choose from iirc.

I'm all over the place italian, irish and other things. No german at all, my husband is 100% German. He would not go for blood work, he didn't believe it all. Well guess what we matched and we also did our test at SIRM. Tell him what I told my husband fact is if you don't do the test our antibodies can kill the baby in my body at any time. Can you live with that?

Well he is eating his words because SIRM gave us our son who is now almost 10 months old

It's my understanding that the issue is the match between you and your DH. If your DH's sperm is taken out of the equation, this should not be an issue.
