If you had known that you would have trouble conceiving, what would you have done differently in life? If you already knew, did that knowledge affect your other life choices?
I had knowledge I was going to have trouble conceiving. When I was a teen, my primary doctor tried giving me birth control at age 16 and another type of drug at 18. I had thought that I wouldn’t need to worry about it because starting a family was something I was not looking to do at that time. I was never told I had PCOS or a thyroid problem.
I think the only thing I would do differently is to take a more proactive role in my healthcare. Birth control is not the best treatment for PCOS. It masks the symptoms rather than treat the causes. Only when my weight spiraled out of control did I care what was going on with me. I used my husband’s access to EbscoHost so I could access medical journals. I did my research and found the treatment plan I wanted.
Things are just not going right. If you have been following my blog you know that Tropical Storm Debby took our vehicle. We bought another vehicle, a 2001 Town & Country. It has broken down twice in the last 2 weeks. It may have an electrical gremlin. We are waiting on the mechanic to call us back and let us know what the deal is. If it is an electrical problem, we are selling the van and trying again. Ughhh!!! I want a reliable vehicle that is clean and newer than the year 2000. We are broke right now, so this is going to be fun :/ This a picture of my dream vehicle because I want it filled with kids.
I talked to my DH and told him about how I am feeling about our diet and he agreed to be supportive in a diet change. We had done it before and we will start again. Looking forward to my weight ticker moving in the right direction. : )
