So all of the test results have come back! My auto-antibodies were normal...and the culture they took was normal. Great news! Friday we got the results of Jason's SCSA test. They were checking DNA fragmentation....15% and below is considered "excellent". 16% - 30% is "good to fair". Jason's result was 20.9%. So it definitely could have been better....but it could have been a whole lot worse. Dr. H. didn't seem alarmed she just suggested Jason stay away from the following things: smoke, Clorox products, bug killers, Roundup. All of those products contain DNA damaging particles. It's amazing the things that the doctors restrict you from. People get pregnant every day and we are resorting to telling Jason to stay away from spraying some ants dead?? It's just really mind blowing to me. I've had a lot of thoughts running through my mind lately....and I haven't been blogging. I need to be better about posting things on here because it really does help for me to talk about it. I'm starting to get really anxious again and nervous about our upcoming cycle. We are just waiting for me to start my period and the whole process starts up again. So I know that in the next couple of weeks we are back in the mode of shots, ultrasounds, bloodwork, test results, doctors appointments. Granted, it will easier in a way this go around since we know what to expect, but I'm just praying for a miracle this time. Praying that God will bless us with a child and ease this difficult journey. If everything falls into place like the last cycle then I figured up we would find out the results right before Christmas. 2009 has been a difficult year for us...I pray it ends with an answer to our prayers.
