I am not writing to inform of our lab results, or next tests. I got a call at 830am to confirm our RE appointment. Then I got in the shower to have my husband frantically calling me telling me to call the RE office- they called him and needed to talk to me. Something about cancelling the appointment.
I call back thinking he misunderstood, since I had already confirmed it. Nope. I talked to the nurse- Nurse S. Apparently I had talked to the receptionist earlier and she didn’t know what was going on. The lab my husbands b/w got sent to has a backlog. When the nurse was getting everything together this AM she noticed she didn’t have all the b/w back- called them to find out they are TWO WEEKS BEHIND!!!
I work in the medical field, so I understand back log. BUT COME ON!!! He got the blood drawn on Jan. 9th. The appointment was cancelled- no point in going in if we are just going to stare at the RE and be told he can’t plan our care until he has ALL the results. Blah.
We now go back on February 13th.As in Friday the 13th. The day before Valentine’s Day. It is either going to SUCK or be great!! 😉 DH was worried that the delay in test results meant that more extensive testing needed to be done b/c something was wrong. Nurse S assured me that EVERYONE’S tests are getting delays right now.
I guess the beginning of the year brings New Years Resolutions to get knocked up too.
This waiting part sucks. I was naive when we first started this. We had our first appt. early Nov. I had a great cycle of b/w, ultrasound, etc. I really thought that my DH’s SA would be fine and we would do an IUI late December. WAAA HA HA HA HA. Silly lady!
NO! First we have to wait for holidays. THEN we get to wait OVER a month to get tests back that should have taken no more than two weeks. Then we get whatever is ordered next…around my DHs schedule.
When this all started I naively thought I would be telling my DH I was pregnant for Christmas. HA HA. Then I thought, well- it will be a sweet Valentine’s Day present. At this rate it WILL be a Christmas surprise. UGH.
Hurry up and wait. I was so frustrated I couldn’t even cry.
What REALLY PISSED ME OFF- was the fact that I got a BILL from the lab today. Uh, you have already processed it and have had time to cycle through and BILL ME?!?!? But you have not finished the damn test yet? BC/BS has even had time to get the claim sent in, and send me a statement. I have to pay for b/w before I even have the results?
Am I just a little to touchy on this or what? Ugh.
So, I am going to have me a glass of wine. Doesn’t look like my uterus is going to be home this century-it will have plenty of time to dry out later. 😉
Thanks for the vent.
