So tomorrow I have yet another doctors appointment. It's a follow up with my OBGYN doctor after a few weeks ago when I thought i was pregnant, only to find out i wasn't and i acutually had PCOS and might not even be able to have children. I've been a nervous wreck since then worrying over if Colin and I would ever be able to have a baby when we're ready. I want soo much to be a mom- i've really been taking this hard lately. Thankfully though- i have a wonderful man by my side who has been sooooooo supportive. Colin has researched PCOS and infertility right along with me and has been incredable about the whole thing. We decided that as soon as we're married- we will not waste any time and we will start to try and have a family as soon as possible- because the amount of cysts on my ovaries is really bad and the doctor said i need to try and concieve as soon as possible to have a better chance of having children. Also- Colin has also said that if we can not concieve on our own- he will support me 100% if we seek IVF or adoption when the time is right. So knowing how supportive he is about this- it's really comforting. During my appointment tomorrow i'm going to discuss PCOS more in depth with her and see what if anything i can do. I am still having an immense amount of pain and cramping off and on..and it's to the point that it's hard to function when i start to cramp badly. Tomorrow I will also find out if I need to see a fertility specalist as well. I'm really hoping i won't have to. Colin and I have decided that if we are able to have children naturally- once we are done having the amount that we would like- I will likely opt for a complete hystroectomy after we're done because of the extent of the pcos. I am ok with that and my doctor said since it would be medical- i wouldn't have to wait for the age limit. (we would love to have 3 or 4 but will take whatever God blesses us with.) So if ya'll don't mind- would ya'll send a few vibes out my way tomorrow. I'm really hoping for good news since i'm young. I'm hoping that will be on my side a bit. I'm also trying to stay really healthy (eating well and working out) so that when we are ready to try to have a baby- it might be easier. Thankyou again guys, I don't know what i'd do without ya'll support!
