Semen Analysis Results

My husband had to have a semen analysis before my Dr. will put me on fertlity drugs. They wanted to make sure that there were no additional problems to be addressed. Long story short.. they came back as abnormal mortility and abnormal morphology. Basically abnoral movement and shape.
So, we are now going to see a urologist July 7th for my husband to have additional testing done. At this time, we will find out if they want to try fertility pills or go straight to an IUI procedure.
I started writing this, but honestly don't feel like continuing.. I'll write more later.

Today sucks.

My new parrot, Emma, bit the hell out of my on Friday, so I have nice puncture wounds on my hand and finger.. She then proceeded to scream quite a bit this weekend and lunge at me through the cage when I walked by..
Then.. I notice that a $160 deposit in cash that we made to the bank on Friday afternoon has not posted. Come to find out-- they can't find it. Yep, you read that right.. The bank cannot find the $160 cash deposit that was made. Even though I have a receipt. I've talked to five different people and faxed over a copy of the receipt this morning. I'm giving them another hour and will call them again.. and continue until I get my money put into the account. Their response, "Oh, well, if it causes anything to bounce, we will refund the ofterdraft fees..." That's not the point here! I shouldn't be waiting on my money to be found and correctly put into my account.
Then, when I came into work this morning, I realized that I had left my leftovers from lunch on Friday at my desk. Carrots, Broccoli, and Cauliflower with rice. So, it naturally caused an odor. My fault. I'm sorry. I made a mistake. I just forgot to grab it as I walked out the door on Friday. So all morning long, that's all anyone is talking about.. how I stunk the place up.. how much it stinks. Lysol has been sprayed and candles are lit. It's really not that bad. Can we move on now?
Lastly, I just got off the phone with a difficult customer. He is claiming to have not received e-mails that I sent him about an issue.. Even went on to say that I may have e-mailed him, but.. I don't like being told that I didn't do something, when I know I did. So, I not so nicely, told him that I would forward him the e-mails that have already been sent to him, along with another one.. He claims to never have gotten them. Then how did I get a return receipt each time he read them? Hmmm.. And I'm the dumb one.
As you can tell.. I'm in a terrible mood. I don't want to talk to anyone. I don't want anyone talking to me. Can I just go home? ..But then I'd have to deal with Emma. It's a lose, lose situation today.

Another step down the path.

I haven't blogged recently-- there hasn't been too much to say. I went to the Dr. about two weeks ago because I have still not ovulated/had a period. I explained to her that we are not wanting to get really aggressive about it again until September. That way if, by some chance, I got pregnant right away, I wouldn't be due until after I graduate. She put me on Prometrium to see if it would produce a bleed-- nothing. I didn't think it would. Provera didn't work so I didn't have much confidence that this would. She wanting me to start Clomid (fertility drug) in September, but I have to have a bleed first-- so that seems to be our problem at the moment. We've got until September to igure it out, so I guess that's a bonus.

I then went in last week because I was having severe pain on my left side. I had an ultrasound, urine analysis, and pelvic exam. My normal Dr. wasn't in, so I had to see another Dr. She kept saying things that were incorrect (don't think she read my chart) and I had to correct her.. So, that didn't make me feel too good or have much confidence in what she was telling me.
During the pelvic exam, she pushed on my left ovary and it hurt really bad.. But then she said that during the ultrasound, she didn't see anything abnormal. She wanted me to go for a CT Scan, but I didn't want to because I knew it was my ovary. She said I could have had a ruptured cyst and if that was the case, the pain would stop in a few days.. Well, I went throught the weekend and the pain was a little less and now is gone. I am really glad I didn't go for all the extra stuff she wanted me to. That would have just been more $$$ owed for crap I didn't need.

Christian is going for his SA on Thrusday.. It's going to be much easier than we orginally thought, so the whole process isn't that big of a deal anymore. It's just waiting on the results. I don't know what we'd do if the results weren't good. Realistically, I know what we would do treatment wise, but I am talking emotionally/mentally. We don't need anything else going against us.

I started school again-- Anatomy night classes. I'm in class Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 6-9pm. I hate the class- with a passion. But I have no choice. I've got to do well in it. There's just so much information and so little time to absorb it all. It's only an 10 week class and we are covering things that would typically be covered in a 20 week course. I normally work well under pressure, so I'm hoping this will help me along. Unfortunatately, with mine and Christian's schedules for school, we will only see each other Friday evenings and then the weekends- at least for the next 10 weeks.
