    @octoberbaby: I have probably cooked 5 times since we got married, he does the cooking, I do the dishes. It works for me! He even makes me lunch for the week, sometimes I feel spoiled ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have you considered peanut butter cookies/treats? Most dogs love peanut butter. My dog destroy all her toys too! they probably last her a week or so, and we buy her the strong kong ones. I’m always picking up the pieces lol

    @octoberbaby:  We buy the cookies. Our dog groomer also makes dog pastries/cakes and her house is a couple of blocks from ours. So convenient!

    I don’t want to start baking dog treats, because then we will also bake treats for us, and that won’t help us with our diet lol

    @Turtle83:  I read about vitamin D…. I work in the Caribbean but avoid the sun because I am so pale…. the last few weeks, I have hung out in the sun a few times.

    Okay bees… I am FREAKING myself out. I was fine this month until I started spotting 7DPO. Very light, went away. Today 9DPO…. I started again :(. I usually spot for a few days before AF. But last month I started spotting at 12DPO. My LP was 15 days. If I get AF, my LP will only be 10 or 11 days …. that is SHORT!!!!!

    @Turtle83:  I dont know…. I am trying to look it up and of course there are mixed answers from one spot to most saying one to two days… to four days. My boss just told us we are going to to Asian food tonight with a champagne toast, wine and sake bombs  (i have a relaly high tollerance so this is nothing for me). I just want to know what is going on so i can drown my sorrows… on sushi and alcohol.

    Hey guys, I haven’t posted for a while because I’m super depressed.  I had an ultrasound on Monday and they said I most likely have PCOS and that’s why I haven’t been ovulating.  They told me that a blood test would confirm it.  I’m still waiting to hear the blood work results.  The ultrasound tech said she could see inside my ovaries too and that I don’t have any dominant follicles.  So she basically confirmed that not only have I not been ovulating to date, but I’m not going to ovulate this cycle either.

    I am just so devastated.  I know it’s not a death sentence, but right now it feels that way.  I feel broken.  For the longest time, I wasn’t even sure I wanted to give birth to children.  Since meeting my DH, that has slowly changed and within the past 2 years, I have had full-blown baby fever.  Hearing that I can’t conceive on my own and will likely need to take medication to make me ovulate…it’s devastating.  I don’t understand why God would give me this desire and then just take it away.  I called out of work and spent most of today in bed.  I didn’t even want to post about it here because then it becomes more real.

    I don’t want to take medication.  I feel like medication is what got me into this situation in the first place.  But I also feel like I have no choice if I want to have my own baby.  I’ve done research on PCOS and I don’t fit the profile at all.  I am at a very healthy BMI, I work out all the time doing both strength & cardio training, I eat extremely healthily, I don’t have excess hair growth or any of the other symptoms.  My mom got pregnant the very first time she had sex EVERY SINGLE TIME!  My best friend had twins while on BCPs.  I’m so much healthier than both of them but no, I’m the one with fertility issues.  I’m just so upset and I can’t stop crying.  I can’t believe this is happening to me.

    @Christy42213:  oh no, you need to stop these negative thoughts! I don’t know why it is that some super healthy people have trouble conceiving, it just isn’t fair. But stop beating yourself up about it. Lots of people use interventions of some sort to get preg, it’s nothing to feel bad about. please don’t suffer alone. Let us know and speak to you partner!
