Rough Week

My high from last week's appointment is officially over:(. Throughout this journey so far, DH and I keep saying, "atleast only one of us has fertility issues." Should have knocked on wood. We got our blood results back from the RE and I have PCOS. Now, I am well aware that this is all too common. I have heard hundreds of stories about women with PCOS who "accidentally" get pregnant with no medical intervention. I know this is not the worst thing in the infertility world- (I think azoospermia ranks up there, personally). I am aware that medicine can treat this. It's just that we already have something! I mean, for the love of all that's holy- can we get a break?

The answer is no! The day after finding out our blood results, my sister informed me that they were pregnant. I know everyone here understands so I don't need to go into detail about being happy for her, but sad for us. On top of all of this, RE wants me to lose 30 lbs. I know you can't see me, but I doubt you would think I need to lose 30. 10 probably, 15 maybe, but 30? I would be pulling out some of my clothes from 8th grade! He has me on a low carb diet, which I've done before, but it's certainly not fun.

I am just so ready for 2012- hopefully SOMETHING good will happen!


  1. I am so sorry! I hope 2012 brings you joy and answered prayers.

  2. Ahh...once you get the dx of azoospermia everything else should be sunshine and flowers to make up for it, am I right? Sorry to hear about this! I hope it all works out for you!

  3. Hello from ICLW! My younger sister just had a baby ... I can totally understand your feelings on your sister's announcement. I hope you're feeling better about. Good luck to you and your husband as you continue your treatments!
