I could not even bear to blog yesterday because I was so darn irritated. Some of you have already heard this story so bless your hearts for reading it again but here goes...
In short, I had to request and pick up my medical records from my old RE. Honestly, I thought doctors just sent medical records but whatever, I didnt have a problem doing it. So I called awhile ago to request my b/w, u/s, HSG and Dan's SA results. The nurse finally calls me yesterday to come pick the records up. I go to the office and she hands me an envelope. Like a regular old envelope with 4 stinkin' pieces of paper in it. Inside are Dan's SA results and my b/w results but nothing with the HSG or u/s. I ask the nurse and she tells me "Oh, that was done in radiology, you have to go there for those records" Um, really? Thanks for letting me know that NOW, weeks later. Since I had to work, I didnt have time to go to radiology so now I am working on that.
Then, I am walking to my car and I look through the little papework I did have and see that my old RE circles "abnormal" for Dan's SA. Whaaaa? As I look at the paper, apparently his sperm count is lower. Not low, but lower. And his note is "Patient will probably be able to conceive but if over one year, would recommend repeat SA to make sure sperm count is not an issue" Again, whaaaaa? This was never EVER mentioned to us and I never received (my fault for not asking, of course) the actual numbers on the SA. I did review the numbers and it would appear that Dan's sperm count should not be an issue but it still bothers me because, well, we DONT have a freakin' answer on why I am not pregnant yet and any little info helps.
So in short, I despise my old RE and am super irriated. And even worse, I now have to wait for the HSG and U/S records and I dont know how long it will take, even those I asked them to put a rush on it. (rush? I guess that will bring my wait time to two weeks) Since I dont have this info, my new RE wont schedule my IUI and I am running out of time to start IUI next cycle. I have already accepted the fact that it might not happen next cycle, just so I can prepare myself and not get too stressed.
Tons of fun, right? Shannon.needs.a.HUGE.glass.of.wine :)
In 101 news, I have changed my list a bit. Its my list, so I guess its ok to change it, right? I changed "Take a Yoga class" to "Take a Zumba class" because I really want to take one (right, Amy!?!) I have also removed "Volunteer at a Foodbank" because I actually have done this before and it was a great experience but I wanted to do something different. I am going to be doing a "Cause of the Month" which I will post to the left. These are caused I have researched and believe in and aside from supporting them with my words, I am going to be supporting each one of them financially. Im pretty excited about it!
Ok, thats alot of info. Thank you to anyone who is still following. I hope ya'll have a great weekend!
And I wouldn't change a thing
I'd walk right back through the rain
Back to every broken heart
On the day that it was breakin'
And I'd relive all the years
And be thankful for the tears
I've cried with every stumbled step
That led to you and got me here, right here
