Worse to Worser


This is a big steaming pile of dog doo. It represents how I feel right now. Total Carp.

Mr. Jem's SA produced 3 non-moving sperm. The sample was looked at by two lab staff, including the director.

Our options:

1) Go forward with ER on Wed, and hope that Mr. Jem's day-of sample will be plentiful. Back-up: Order donor sperm

2) Go forward with ER on Wed, and hope that Mr. Jem's day-of sample will be plentiful. Back-up: Freeze eggs. Chance of getting PG cut in half.

3) Go forward with ER on Wed, have Mr. Jem give a sample the day before and hope that Mr. Jem's sample will be plentiful. Back-up: take biopsy from testicle to find sperm the day of.

This sucks. Why??????????????????????????????????????? (me shaking my fist and swearing at the heavens!)

We'll go with option 3, with more donor sperm as more backup. Total suckitude.

In the meantime, I'm a ball of hormones. My estrogen is so high that I must be emitting crazy pheromones. Strange men are hitting on me on the street, in the elevator. My belly feels like I'm pregnant with a litter of puppies. I have 19 little guys growing in me.

I just want this to go smoothly and it's not. Thus, I'm back to that steaming pile. Yuck.

I hope things improve! I also have to say that even in the middle of a suckitude cycle, your post also had me laughing (the elevator/estrogen.

That does suck and it isn't fair. I'm hoping the next sample is better.

Oh crap, Jem. That really does suck. It sounds like you have a fair amount of decent options and that Mr Jem is being a trooper about the biopsy. I hope that things get a bit smoother after this point.

That is a complete crock of poo and I'm sorry you have to go through this. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that your hubbies sample will be miraculously plentiful and all goes well!

Oh Jem, that is a major suckitude. I'm so sorry you are having this stress while all jacked up on stims. It's not fair. Poop.

This completely sucks. Option three sounds like a great idea, giving you loads of flexibility! Take it easy, be kind to yourself and shout at the heavens if it makes you feel any better!

Come on, big batch of swimmers on ER day! That must have been such hard news to get while you're already in the midst of a cycle, but here's hoping it all gets better from here!
