I am steaming MAD!!!

Stupid fricken sperm lab place.......ughhhhhhhh.......I am furious.......


My DH took yesterday and today off so we could run some errands and do his SA......So yesterday at approx. 11:20am my DH and I dropped off a sperm sample at the hospital lab that his Urologist sent us too.....I kept it warm the whole way there and when we got there and dropped it off it was no big deal.....we gave it too them and they said our doc. would get the results in about 3days......So we left and went on about our day......Today we just ran some random errands and went and did some visiting.....We get home and at 5pm we get a call from the lab......well apparently there was some sort of problem with the timing of the lab testing ppl picking up the SA from the desk place where we dropped it off (which is right where we were supposed to) and it sat there too long so the sample was bad.......So now they want us to come in tomorrow and do another SA.....well first of all we have 3 fricken birthday parties to go to tomorrow, and second of all you are not supposed to ejaculate for 3 days before giving a sample so that it will be more potent or something like that.....so NO we can not do it tomorrow.....Now my DH is going to have to take another day off work and I'm supposed to drop everything I'm doing because lord knows he can't go give a damn sample without me holding his hand.....Godforbid he do it all by himself like a big boy......All because the stupid lab.......Which I hate that lab anyways, the last time we where there for a SA I felt like they where all looking at us like we where lepers!


I don't even understand why it took them so long to call and tell us this info.....it was too late for me to call the urologist and find out what he wanted us to do about this......they obviously had to of known this yesterday afternoon......Now I have to listen to DH whining about having to do this again,........like its so fricken hard.....I'm just annoyed and frustrated I don't understand why things can never just go smoothly.....All I want is a baby.....more then anything in the world I want a baby......why does it seem to be road block after road block.....even little things like this make me want to break down in tears and have a temper tantrum....


Thanks for listening to me ramble on about this.....


Oh and by the way.....if I hear one more person say "All my DH has to do is touch me and I'm pregnant again" I might just punch them in the face......its not cute and its not funny.....and your not orginal, I've heard that a hundred times


On a more positive note.....AF is supposed to show today and she hasn't as of yet....but I do feel a little bit crampy....so I'm hoping and praying with everything I got that this is the month for me.....and I can just forget all about that damn SA

I am so sorry about the lab. That totally sucks. When we took our SA sample to hospital I felt like they were looking at us funny too. What is it with people? Not everyone can get pregnant. I was mad at my brother in law because -jokingly- he tells us "you're jealous because I'm having a baby and you're not. I know he didn't mean it but it floored me. Everyone in my family knows we have been trying forever for a baby. You know I think drs offices suck too. I was at mine yesterday and made an appt for bloodwork. We all sat there and agreed that I would come in 8-9 days after O. So I would go in in about 2 weeks give or take. The front desk called me today and asked if I had done my bloodwork. Does anyone communicate with anyone else? I know how you feel about breaking down and my heart goes out to you. I hope you get your BFP.

*hugs* That is SO frustrating! I can't believe some people's disrespect for other's time and efforts. I hope things work out for the SA to be successfully carried out next time.


You did make me giggle a little when you said he couldn't give do and SA without your holding his hand. Is it that or he can't do it with out you holding his.... never mind! lol!

uggghh I'm so sorry about this mess!! That was so irresponsible of the lab. SA's are something that must be timed perfectly!


I think we hit "roadblock after roadblock" for a reason. I don't know what that reason is, but just think...when you have your baby, that child will be so LOVED. He/she is already loved and they're not even HERE yet!! I think that's amazing :)


I also couldn't help but laugh when you said: "Oh and by the way.....if I hear one more person say "All my DH has to do is touch me and I'm pregnant again" I might just

you are so funny. I have noticed that we are all a little violent on this board. But you are right, better us get it out here than beating someone in the drs office. There's less consequence with wishful thinking.

Jeanne - I'm so sorry to hear about the mess! That's funny about needing to be there for DH to get a SA. I'm thankful my DH doesn't get the heebie-jeebies about it - he just gives a sample right there in the oh-so-secret lab room. Though he does hate when I ask him questions about it.

You're so right on about the pg comments. I cannot believe people even say those things jokingly. So not funny. I wish I had a witty comeback. Maybe someone else has one we can use!

I am so sorry that happened to you.


It is bad enough you and your DH have to deal with having problems getting PG but then to have to deal with incompetent lab people.

OMG Jeanne!!! I too would totally be seething! I love how people think that b/c we don't have kids, we can just work our schedules around. that's great just friggin great! Seriously, I have promised myself that if I get a BFN this month, I'm going to have an all out temper tantrum. I think I really need it. I've been FEELING mad, but I've never really let it go. So, I let DH know so that he's prepared for the throwing of an HPT and some screaming and air punching. I'm not a temper tantrum kinda girl, but I think that's exactly why I need to do it. Maybe that might help for you, let DH know that if AF comes, you're just gonna flip and tell him what you need from him. Be careful though not to break anything valuable. I've already planned my tantrum, I figure our shower curtain liner is getting pretty grungy so that will more than likely be the first to go. GL, and here's to AF staying away!
