It may be TMI-you've been warned

So I have been considering posting this for the past two days. I wasn't sure how people would react to the *TMI*....Well I am too excited and amazed that I must post/vent. I have PCOS, I think I may have mentioned in a previous post. Basically I have a bunch of hormonal issues, a few being : hair loss (which is depressing me more and more- I used to have great hair), acne (not so much an issue, not like when I was younger- I would trade the clear face for a head full of hair anyday), I don't ovulate on my own (used fertility to have my Emmy) and then I have CRAZY abnormal periods (had them 2-4 times a yr until I was about 21- then they disappeared for good). I had my first very- own (no medical intervention) period in 10yrs the month I got pregnant with Emily and then about a 1yr & 2mos after I had Emily, I had a period. I was so surprised, I remember when learning about breastfeeding they said you can go a yr without a period, but I didn't listen because I thought that didn't apply to me. So after that first surprising period, I had a few more that year. Ever since then I have had one here and there. But this is the crazy part, I had one last month and again this month. Two in a row,that just doesn't happen to me. Why is this exciting or why am I happy about this? Well to me this means I may be ovulating on my own. I want another baby or at least I wanna try for another. I need to lose about 30-40lbs first (weight gain another fun side effect of PCOS insulin is my enemy) . Part of me feels like I wasted a month, a month I may have become pregnant on my own- but the other part of me is like I could have become pregnant last month-wooo hooo!!! I need to get my buns in gear and strictly adhere to my WW pts so I can lose the lbs. I also need to start charting my temperatures so I can see if anything is happening. They say that women with PCOS sometimes find getting pregnant the second time around is easier, I hope this applies to me. We can't afford the meds I used to have Emmy and once we are in the 'country' my RE will be far away. I know I am just babbling away here, but I am soooooo excited!!!!!!!!

Wish me baby luck!!

That's so exciting! I have always been like clockwork & it's so easy to take something like that for granted... Wishing you lots of baby luck! Even though you have some goals for yourself before officially trying, I am sure you wouldn't complain about a "whoops!" =)

Wishing you huge baby luck. Everyone I know seems to be getting preggo. I hope you get to be in that group. Sigh, wishing I could be.
