Okay, we all know that infertility is not fun. The heartache, the waiting, the exams, the treatments. It all stinks!! But if we can't laugh at some of it we will go insane. So share something humorous that has happened to you!
We only have one lab that does a semen analysis and it happens to be over 30 minutes away. As you all know the specimen needs to be there within 30 minutes. So we decided to go there and provide the sample. Mistake! Big Mistake!! They did not have a "happy room" to do this in. What did they have?? They had a handicap bathroom. In the middle of the office complex that the lab was housed in. Hubby was not happy about having to do this there so I promised to help him out. Have you ever done...well...you know...in a public restroom?? First, it is nasty!! And I will never use a handicap bathroom anywhere a lab or urologist is present again!! Second, people knock. Constantly! Very distracting. And when you walk out together people give you "the look". We laugh now, but it was quite embarassing a the time. For the next 2 samples we got them at home and I dropped them off on the way to work. I drove like speed racer to get there in time, praying that I would not get pulled over.
Recently a friend of mine had to drop off a sample and they live even further than we do from the lab. After telling her how the bathroom was set up they decided do as we did and get it at home and drop it off. I also told her to store it in her bra. And not get pulled over. Two out of three isn't bad. They got pulled over!!! And they had to explain where they were going in such a hurry. I laughed so hard when she told me!!! How do you explain a cup of spermies nestled between your boobies? The cop was nice and let them go.
Another one for me was during my FET. I was told to have a partially full bladder. We left early to stop off at church so that our pastor could pray with us. I drank 2 glasses on the way to church but soon found I had to pee. And had 2 hours till baby time. So I went potty. And grabbed another water. By the time we arrived I had to go again. I sat there, doing the potty dance, waiting to be called back. The embryologist called me back to show us the pretty little embies. The whole time I was shaking my legs, praying I wouldn't wet myself. I finally asked the nurse if I could go to the bathroom and she said that I could. I ran like mad to the bathroom!! She waited outside of the door laughing at how much I went. Then after the FET I had to go again. This would have not been too bad had I not had to lay down for an hour. I thought that I would be fine, but then it happened. I peed! All over myself. Then I laughed. And peed some more. The nurse returned with the RE and a cathater. I filled that whole thing up, all while the nurse was laughing at how much I had to go. After they finished I lay there and wouldn't you know it, I peed again!!! And once my hour was up I ran to the bathroom again! I tell ya, the thing we go through to have a baby!!
So share it! What funny things have happened to you?
