Road blocks

So we are trying to fit our ivf in May. My dh is currently gone won't be back til end of April. He then has to leave again in June for month for work. Prior to him leaving we met with RE who outlined the rest of the test we needed to get done only one of which was for dh and he just needed to do final SA when he gets back. So we planned a tight schedule as I am expecting AF on 20th or so. I was to start bcp for 2-3 weeks. The week dh gets back do teaching visit and SA. Now today the nurse calls and says they just realizes that DH has not had karotyping done which is a 10-14 day lab turnaround cutting it very close from the time he gets back and my expected stim start date. I swear my RE said he would only need tested if something showed abnormal on mine. Anyways she said she would check with RE but that they usually wanted it done. I am just starting to hit these roadblocks and I know its not going to be a smoothe process and to just not stress about it, its just that we have been on hold since January and don't want to have to wait even longer til July.

Aghhhhh, ok that's out. I'm better now, lol. I need to just not stress about these little road blocks and know that it will happen when its time.
