I'm 33, have 3 beautiful children ( a 6 year old girl, a 4 year old girl and a 3 month old baby boy). I was diagnosed with PCOS about 3 or 4 years ago. I had never heard of it and had no idea what it was. After searching on the internet for some answers I come across all the nasty side effects of this condition including infertility.
I conceived my first daughter while talking a medication to start my period. As many of us, I can go months and months without having a period; which makes it difficult to know the best time to conceive. My second daughter was the product of one round of clomid. After having a heck of a time losing weight after my second daughters birth, I then was told about the condition I had. I also suffer from thyroid conditions. My Endocronologist told me I was lucky to have the two babies I had and that I wouldn't be able to conceive any more kids. I was ok with this, since I had two healthy girls. I started taking metformin in October of 2010. And by what I call a miracle, I got pregnant with my 3rd; my boy :) We call him our blessed surprise.
I feel so truly blessed to have these three little people in my life. Having read about so many other women with this condition and the struggles they have had to deal with in trying to conceive, I feel I'm walking proof that you CAN get pregnant while dealing with this annoying condition.
Now that I'm done having babies, I'm starting the tough battle of losing the weight and getting my body back...or at least half of what I use to look like.
I look forward to meeting you all and getting thru this annoying condition together.
