    Default Hi ladies!

    Just checking in, seeing how everyone is holding up. I am doing so much better from my emotional rant a month ago. Went to the gyno a week ago to get my annual pap smear and see about birth control. Well, I went to a new doctor and she had to get a total medical history from me since I had no file with her. I told her about my fertility troubles etc and told her I just wanted birth control. She was an amazing doctor. She told me she really didn't believe I wanted to end my journey and start the BC, but that I was so stressed from the horrible experiences I had before with the RE that I just felt like giving up. Well anyways, this doctor used to be in the OB field so she is pretty well informed and asked me to give her just a few more months and she would help me the best she could. She ordered blood work and it turns out I have PCOS. Ummm...thanks to my RE for NOT sharing that info with me. It would figure that when I GIVE UP ttc I would get a diagnosis. ..go figure :P. Anyways she said she wants me to get an HSG next month (she was disgusted that the RE put me on so many rounds of clomid without even checking that my tubes were open first) She also has a sonogram machine so she did an internal ultrasound and lo and behold I have 2 HUGE follicles that she believes will ovulate this weekend. So, looks like a "busy" weekend for DH and I. So much for no longer ttc But honestly I wish I would have gone to this lady sooner. I actually feel so much more calm and reassured now that I have a diagnosis and she is very confident we can take care of the problem.

    Sorry this was long winded...I have just missed you ladies and haven't talked to ya'll in so long!

    MICHELLE!!!! We have MISSED YOU!!!

    I'm SO HAPPY to see you back. And 'back in the saddle' lol lol
    I was sure you had some more options and was so hoping you'd give it another go. I'm so excited for you with this new dr! AND PCOS is common and one of those things that's very treatable for TTC. I'm so glad you have a diagnosis and you are with such an excellent new dr. She sounds fantastic.

    HUGE GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!! And have a fun weekend lol

    So excited about your update Michelle. PCOS can be dealt with - I have had it since I was 16. Sounds like you have an awesome new doctor. Good luck!
