"Results Can Be Expected In 10 Days"

This is what the person at the lab told me today when I called in an act of total desperation.  10 DAYS?  You have got to be kidding me.  I am beyond frustrated.  I am kicking myself for not asking how long we would have to waiting to get results back when I was making the first appointment (three weeks ago pre-rescheduling twice).  So basically by the time we hear the scoop on the state of the sperm, Aunt Flow will have made her appearance and we'll be out another month. 

The worst part is remembering the argument Hammer and I had a few weeks ago when I wanted to forgo BD (since the last three years of BD have been less than successful) and just do the test so we get the results back in time.  He pushed to BD and I caved.  Now we will have yet another month under our belt before possibly starting IVF.  I'm trying to comfort myself by saying that the results could come back fine and we'd be doing this anyway until July but to be honest with you it's not working.

I just don't believe that chiropractic treatment is going to solve our problem good SA or not.  And I don't think it's worth the extra months of waiting around and putting off IVF until July if the SA results are good.  Obviously Hammer and I have a lot to talk about.  And this is my total 'human self' rambling and I have not taken this to the Lord yet but I just had to get out some steam somewhere since I'm stuck at work and this blog and my bloggy friends are such a safe place to vent.  Thank you bloggy friends, I'm giving you all a bloggy {{HUG}} right now!

10 days seems ridiculous to me! My doctors office said within 5 and I think most sources online also say 5 days. That stinks!!!

However, just because they say within 10 days, doesn't mean it'll be last minute. It could still come today or tomorrow. I'm praying with you that they come before AF shows up, and that the results will line up with exactly what you need them to be.

Vent all you need, but don't give up all hope yet. I feel confident, on your behalf, that it'll all work out. :-)

Okay, I've never posted here before, but I have come across your blog a few times through fellow IF bloggers.

And I just felt compelled to say- 10 days is a ridiculous amount of time to wait! What in the world? My DH had 2 was at a regular doctor's office and we got the results back in 2-3 days. The second time was at our RE's office and they emailed him the results that very same afternoon. In my opinion, 10 days is unacceptable. I'm really sorry you have to wait this out. How frustrating!

What?! Oh my gosh, I am so frustrated for you. I pray the results come quicker and all the other details "fall into place" Hang in there!

The waiting game that is the TTC process loves to kick us when we're down, doesn't it? I too am in a TTC holding pattern. Until possibly Sept. after a mtx injection. Wishing you luck and strength.

Hugs back at you! I'm so sorry to hear that you have to wait 10 days. That really is a long time when someone is sitting on pins and needles waiting.
I will be praying for you guys!

10 days? Are you kidding? We got ours back in 5 days for sure. I hate waiting for anything, so I can only assume this is killing you.

I am sorry!! I hope that was just a ridiculous estimate and you hear back soon :)

I know I have said this already, but I still can't believe it is taking so long and I can COMPLETELY understand how frustrating that would be. So for the third time I will say, that is horrible!! Hang in there. Did AF arrive??
