Sperm Analysis Part 2

The doctor called this morning and we got the results of Dan's SA. Everything looks great. He said that male infertility is not an issue for us. He has emailed me the results but Im not sure what all the numbers mean, I need to look at them more. But all I know is that Dan is fine!

I am really happy about this, actually thrilled. But it did make me feel a little more like a failure. So Dan is ok and its me. Im the reason we aren't pregnant. What am I doing wrong? Is it really the blockage that is causing the problem? Or is it just me. I know I have to be positive and having a pity party for one wont help, so Im not going to do it. Im just praying that God grants me the strength to not feel like a failure and offers me the chance to feel success.

Hey Shannon... I'm mostly a GP lurker, but I've been following your blog. I'm SO happy the SA has turned out great. We just found out we have issues on both sides and I know how overwhelmed you must feel. You're so far from a failure! Your positivity helps me be positive, too. And so many other women, I'm sure.

I wish you ALL the success in the world and a baby ASAP! Your turn is way overdue.

Shan, I'm so glad to hear that all is well with Dan. This is yet another step closer to getting your baby.

At the same time, I know how you feel. Please know that you are not a failure. I know it sounds so redundant, but God really does have a plan. Sometimes we think it sucks or that our ways are better, (I feel that way all.the.time!) but, be strong and have faith, Friend. You can be sure that our God will come through.

Shannon-I felt the same way when I found out husband was fine. It's happy news, but at the same time disappointing that there's still not a problem to pinpoint.

Aww, Shannon, I know it's tough. I'm so sorry. Please don't feel like a failure. Hopefully you won't have to wait much longer for a BFP.

Great news about YH! You are not a failure, as we all know God will not give you more than you can handle. I know that your time will be soon. Hang in there ((HUGS))

I'm so happy that the SA came back with good news. What a blessing!!

As I've learned your story and read your blog, I've seen the strength you have. As we go through life, sometimes situations call for extra strength, but I hope you recognize just how strong you are. I think it rubs off on the rest of us. It's hard to be patient, but I know your blessing will come!

I'm glad the SA turned out well! That is super news! I know how you feel when you say you feel like a failure. I know that we aren't failures, but it is hard to not feel that way sometimes. Stay strong and keep the faith, that's what I'm trying to do. (((hugs)))

awww Shannon- yay for Dan's results.. but please don't feel down on yourself. Think of it as one step closer towards making your baby, it is better to figure out the problem. If the SA had come back with low #'s, you would never consider your husband a failure, so don't do yourself such an injustice (even though I know it is a completely natural response to have)! Praying for you... Mrs.Carlybella
