Take that PCOS! (Gentlemen I wouldn't read this)
Tuesday, January 08, 2013
Ok I know I posted a long blog earlier feeling all down and sorry for myself so I will keep this as short as humanly possible but I am SUPER thrilled!
Long story short I have always been told that I would never be able to have children without the help of fertility drugs. My son is living proof that this isn't true. After he was born I ballooned up to where I am now and the doctors have told me I have PCOS/Metabolic syndrome and I won't be able to have any more children until I lose weight. I lost quite a bit last year in preparation for my wedding and Aunt Flo(AF) came back and we tried in vain to get pregnant. After we came home from Las Vegas where we got married I quit working out and eating right b/c I was sick of denying myself. I hadn't learned yet that it wasn't dieting it was an entirely new way of living to sustain the losses. So I gained it all back. Well this time with the help of all the wonderful Sparkers and the motivation to participate in the 5k mud run it is sticking. And as a result my PCOS/Metabolic Syndrome symptoms are finally beginning to release their choke hold on my health including the absence of AF. Fellow cysters know exactly what I am talking about and experiencing. AF has returned! OMG! I am so excited and on a high that NO ONE can bring me down from. My dreams of having another baby may finally be on the very near horizon. I have been praying every night that if it was Gods will then my husband and I would be able to conceive and finally have our first child together and my prayers are finally being answered! It's funny how you take things into your own hands for health reasons and His will follows. Praise God! Have a wonderful rest of the evening my fellow Sparkers and especially my fellow cysters with Him anything is possible.
