Weekends are never long enough

I've had a headache for about 3 days now.  =(  I typically can sleep them off, but not this time.  I also feel nauseated every day now.  I've already finished one bottle of Pepto this month. 

We have a urologist appointment scheduled for Brandon this Friday.  His FSH levels were elevated during past blood work and the RE seems to think that we need to get this figured out.  Brandon's been taking vitamins for SA and I'm anxious to see what else the urologist has to offer.  The other day I mentioned how tobacco pretty much kills sperm.  Brandon had NO idea.  How had he never heard of this?  He said that he's going to cut back.  I figure that I should let this argument slide and if his numbers don't get better we'll talk about it again.

September still seems so far away.  I know that I haven't had to endure this that long, but 9 months is still a long time.  I've been off BCP for a year now and only had 10 cycles.  Only 4 of those cycles have been ovulatory.  I just can't help but feel that this isn't fair. I think I'm more discouraged that I have to wait for insurance to cover a surgery and then wait to recover before trying IUI.  What if IUI doesn't work the first time??

  1. hi! I've been reading your posts & I just want to wish you the best! I know this is difficult, but try to stay positive! Hopefully, the urologist will have good news for you! I did one IUI (so far) in April. No luck, but I'm not giving up on it. We may try that again in a few months... Keep your spirits high!
