This past weekend was pretty amazing and wonderfully relaxing. My husband and I spent the whole weekend just hanging out together. We played games, ordered in, and drank champagne (I know I previously said I was going to quite drinking, but at this point I figure I am not going to be able to drink for 9 months when I finally do get pregnant, so why start now?). It was amazing. We had great sex every day. I only wish I had been ovulating at that time!
Anyway, it was back to the grind on Monday, and back to a regular work out schedule, which I had been neglecting for a few months. My husband had his doctor appointment yesterday and got a prescription to get a sperm count done. However, his doctor then proceeded to tell him she thought we were getting tests done too early and that it normally takes a couple around a year to get pregnant.
So it appears my husband is now on the fence about getting the testing done because I am obviously overreacting to the situation…
What my husband’s doctor does not know is that my doctor suggested getting the testing done to rule out him as the problem so we can then work on me, because I am the one with the issue. I am the one with the extremely short cycle, late ovulation, and 9 day luteal phase!! My doctor simply suggested that he get the test done so we know and can move on from there! Now, I am sure my husband did not tell the doctor this because, frankly, I don’t think he knows. When the whole subject was brought up with him previously he was so mad at me for not being happy his brother’s wife was pregnant that I don’t think he was listening.
Ultimately I think he will eventually have the testing done, but we won’t have the results in time for my appointment with the OB next week. My ovulation should be occurring today or tomorrow. I had been taking 50mg of B6 in the hopes my ovulation would come sooner, but that apparently did not work this cycle – all OPK taken since Sunday have been neg
