Little stressed and edgy. I am going to see my OB/GYN tomorrow. Normal visits would not bother me, but tomorrow we are going to discuss pregnancy. I have been diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic overian syndrom). This is one the leading causes of infertility and the possibility of miscarrying is high. I am prepared with questions. I am not trying to get myself all worked up, but I want to be educated. I want to know what can be done and the type of treatment that is available. This doesn't seem to be a big deal to most I am sure, but I am not one to require a lot of time from my Doctors. I typically go in, give my story, and out I go. So, this time Paul is going with me, he will force me to ask and take my time until I am satisfied. I am not expecting to get pregnant right away, I know that this can take time, or maybe it will hapen right away. Who knows. I think once I get some info and get educated about what to expect, I will feel better.

Girl~ I HEAR ya!! I was diagnosed with PCOS also! We've been trying for over a year. My Ob/gyn worked with me for the first few months, but then sent me out to a specialist. At first I was just seeing a nurse practitioner but then she pushed me on to the actual infertility dr. I've had lots of scans and tests. He's got me on Clomid right now and I have to go back in a week for an ultrasound to see if I have any follicles. It's a long bumpy road~ thank God for good husbands! It's great that Paul is going with you! I know it's a personal matter, but if you need anything, I'm on the other side of the web :o) Good Luck

Oh Julie, yuck. It's always a big deal when you find out your body isn't working in the way you anticipated.
My thoughts are with you.
