I finally went to see the midwife - i know I know I've been here forever.... there's just so little that I'm willing to do (medically intervening etc)
She ordered bloodwork at CD 3 and 21 then I'll call once they recieve the results to schedule an appointment to discuss it. DH is getting another sperm analysis too (we think they waited too long to do the analysis since he was kept waiting (with the sample) for longer than we'd expected he would.
Now for my question. I ovulate late (regularly on cycle day 19 or 20) I have temped too so I know this to be accurate. The standard blood work is based on the average woman's cycle (28 days, not my 31 days). Shouldn't that second set of bloodwork be pushed back a day or two? What if I have a month like last month (not normal) where I o'd on CD 22? The bloodwork wouldn't look normal and I certainly don't want to have to have more bloodwork done than necesary (eck I hate it).
I did ask my midwife this, and admittedly she isn't the one of the group (of 8 or so midwives) who typically works with TTC. But she checked with one of the ones who does primarily work with TTC patients and said it'd still be CD 21. Am I crazy? I'm thinking I might call the office and double check especially if ovulation hasn't been confirmed by CD 21. annoying though.
