That positive OPK is amazing – but it looks like you Od yesterday! Either way if you already did or if you are tomorrow, I hope you got all your lead-up days before you head to grandma’s for the weekend! 😉 YAY!!!!!!!!! I know, I was a bit puzzled as to how my blood could all come back normal but still have even a mild case of PCOS. I really think though that my doctor just doesn’t know enough about it, which is why she didn’t fully diagnose me and say “you have it”. She just said “I think”, and it “suggests”. For now I’m just glad there’s nothing seriously wrong that cropped up, and I’m going to try to get myself into as good a shape as I can and hope we don’t need that appointment 4 months hence. 😀
I’m SO with you on the personal chef thing – it’s what I’m looking forward to most for when I win the lottery! 😉 And…for gluten-free bread, I’ve actually heard that it tastes better when you make it yourself! I’m sure you’ve come across her site already in your internet travels, but just in case, you should check out this site for recipes: http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.ca/
That would be amazing – FX! 😀
I’ve checked my printout (I requested one) and no, they didn’t check my testosterone. I didn’t even think about it until you mentioned it, but that does seem kind of weird. I didn’t ask about metforming because I was under the impression it was to be used in cases where your blood sugars were off or you had thyroid issues. My thyroid function came back totally normal.
It’s not just you – this process IS taking forever. I’m sorry you’re totally sidelined and waiting while your body resolves everything – waiting to start again is SO hard, and I felt that even when mine ended so swiftly. I’m sorry honey. It’s hard to stay strong, but if you need anything – we’re here! XOXOXOX
I ditto you on the short fingers – I can barely even touch the middle of my cervix to see if it’s open most days! I’m still waiting for that video……..
I’m not TOO sure on how it works with the waitlist. I *think* they have standing appointments for regular patients, and they fill those with the patients they’re currently seeing, until those patients don’t need them anymore and they admit another patient? I’m hoping that 6 months is just a really generous estimate and it’s a little less.
Thanks hon…we just have to keep on keepin on 😉 FX you get some good news in a couple of days 😉
I’m SO sorry about AF love. 🙁 I totally know the feeling…..I was so sure JennyRenny was right and I’d conceive right away after the MC, and I was SO gutted when I realized with our timing and when I Od that we didn’t even have a CHANCE that month. I hope you’ll stick with it here, and possibly start charting so you have more knowledge about what’s going on with your cycles. Have you had any testing yet?
Love those pictures!!! I have to say that you have to be one of the most uplifting ladies on the TTC threads. I know it’s not all sunshine and rainbows, but when you’re here you make me feel like it it! XOXOXOX
YAY for starting again!!!!!!!!!!!! There’s no point dreaming unless you’re chasing that dream in the daytime! Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XOX
Sore nipples are the worst! FX there’s a good reason for them!!!! XOX
Thanks for popping in!! It’s OK, I’m not worried. I’m actually feeling really good since the appointment. It gave me the kick in the ass I really needed to start DOING something serious about my health. I was confused with the conflicting results too, but my doctor seemed to be a little as well. To be honest I suspected PCOS to begin with, so it just sort of confirmed that. I think my hormone levels aren’t exactly wrong, but I think my ultrasound results are likely more accurate. I still haven’t looked into a naturopath….but maybe I’ll make some inquiries to see how long the wait is for an appointment! How’s baby Hami treating you?? XOX
I’m sure round two will give you some much needed results honey. Try try again? *massive hugs* I hope you’re able to start fresh without too much of a wait time. XOX
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I ALMOST warned you about that, but I thought it would be more fun to let you find out on your own! I thought maybe it could just be me though – I can also push a tampon out. This means childbirth will be a breeze for us, right????
Awww honey. *big big hugs* for you. I’m so sorry. I understand completely. Sometimes you just have to cry it out before you can prepare yourself to fight again. I think sometimes the worst part of that feeling is that you feel like such an asshole after you have that reaction, because it’s not THEIR fault you aren’t pregnant, but it just hurts so much and you can’t help those feelings. I bawled my eyes out when my brother called on Christmas morning to tell me his new wife is pregnant, and they were NOT happy tears at all. After I got off the phone with him I had a screaming crying fit about how f#cking unfair everything is. Luckily my brother thought my tears were because I was overcome with joy and emotion. We’ll have our babies soon – for some reason we just have to wait. It’s just taking Him a while to find the perfect babies for us, that’s all. XOXOXOX
