Waiting for results...

Recommended Posts

So... FINALLY FI managed to call the doctor's office and ask wtf.gif was up with us never getting anything in the mail...

 

Well, the nurse says that she can't tell him anything over the phone, but obviously the doctor had signed off on the results and not seen anything unusual, so - we think we are celebrating, but won't for sure until he goes tot he doctor next Friday!!!!!

 

We may be home free (at least in terms of FI's fertility)

 

WOOHOO!!! elefant.gif

OH YAY!!

My man is in the same boat. He never had a vasectomy, but he was on alot of meds as a kid, due to a heart condition. smile105.gif And at one point in time a doctor said he might have "problems" ..whatever that means wtf.gif

But he is scared to go. He says he wants to know before the wedding, but I guess the finality of it scares him...

 

any word of advice ?

FI was in the same boat in that he had had the reversal done about 2 years ago, but had never gotten tested, because he didn't want to know. He said he was happier 'hoping' than knowing...

It's hard to 'nudge' a man to do something like this if he is hesitant to find out, but I think what made FI finally go was when I booked myself in for a doctor's appointment to discuss pre-pregnancy vitamins, tests, etc. I had a full check-up and chatted with my doctor about when I should go off the pill, etc.
I think that is what really made him feel like he owed it to himself and to me to be proactive and just do it.

That said, he did the test and we didn't hear back for over a month and it was like pulling teeth to get him to call the doctor and ask what happened with the results. He FINALLY did call, but it took me about 3 weeks of almost begging him to ask about the results.
We'll know for sure in a week.

I also was really clear with him from the beginning that I wanted kids and he wanted kids and that that was the most important thing to me. That we both wanted kids. No matter how we went about it, we would make it happen. So he knew that I in no way was going to leave or be pissed off if he couldn't do it naturally.
I will be very disappointed, but we're in it together.

As long as your FI knows he's got your full support, maybe you shouldl go ahead and book yourself in for an appointment wink.gif :)

Good luck!

This week is dragging... work has been brutal and I'm on edge waiting for FI to see the doctor on Friday to get the real results...

 

We're planning on going out after on Friday night together. We haven't seen much of eachother in a week. So much work and he's in classes 2 nights a week too. We're both exhausted.

 

I soooo hope it's good news. Crossing my fingers.... blush2.gif

YIPPEE!!!

The verdict is... as FI says... he has "overachieving" sperm. rofl.gif

 

He is in great condition (and so are his swimmers). LOL! The test showed that his surgery was successful and he's got something like 60% viable sperm.

 

To celebrate, I made him a special cake. I brought it to his parents' place for dinner the other night.

I had to start out by stating to everyone that I was not pregnant. (FMIL was disappointed. She wants me to have twins! LOL!)

 

Check it out - it's angel food cake iced with whipped cream and then decorated with chocolate sperm and chromosomes. LOL! smile29.gif

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
