If you followed my blog in the very beginning, or ventured back and got to know me better, you'll know that it took us 18 months to get pregnant with Miss A. I saw a RE who though it was PCOS and he put me on Metformin for 3 months to see if that changed anything, and it did. I wasn't able to take it very often, I threw up constantly when I did, but I was able to lose about 10lbs and we got pregnant.

So far since having A I've kept that weight off, I'm about 3lbs heavier than I was before I got pregnant. I've been working out, cut soda out for about a month, and seem to be gaining weight, my face is breaking out & I think I'm seeing some extra hair on my face, sexy right? If you know PCOS those are some signs.

See this whole thing started about a week or two ago when I started breaking out more, which NEVER happens. I figured I'd look up my birth control only to find it's the same as the shot, just lower doses. Acne & weight gain could happen too, so after some contemplation we agreed that I would stop the pill and see if my acne went away and if my weight went down, were going to watch things a week at a time, but I know I need 
to do more, I'm worried about every pound I gain being PCOS. 

It's been about a week since I stopped taking my BC. My face has cleared up and I seem to be losing a little weight, just going back to what I was before. I was also told to take extra Folic acid at my last appointment. Which seems to be making my stomach sick, any suggestions? I take it at night with my prenatal. Not sure what to do. 

Hubs is starting a diet this next week since he's gained about 60lbs since I had A. I wanted to try a PCOS diet plan, at least for breakfast & for dinner a few nights a week, but I can't plan both a plan for him & a plan for me and make them work, he has a very specific plan, and I don't know if I  want to try & make the two work together. It's bad enough I already have to change everything around for him. 

Sounds mean, I know. But without him helping around the house at all, its just easier to not mess with too many things. I know some of you deal with/have dealt with PCOS, any thoughts? Ideas? Help. Ha. 

Hope everyone is doing well.

Depo shot. I'd also call this the devil's shot. This is where all our problems started. I would never recommend this to anyone. The side effects are weight gain, skin reactions, depression, nervousness, change in sex drive, hair loss... and blah blah blah. I wish I would have done some more research on it right away, just thought it was fine. I trusted my doctor.

Doctor/Davis Hospital. I absolutely love my OB, he is the OB that found cervical cancer in my sister, and he also did the surgery to remove it. He is so kind and I love that his office is within walking distance of the hospital. It's right across the street.

Dating. Skyler and I didn't date for very long before getting engaged (less than 4 months) and so our dating phase lasted up through the beginning of our marriage. We met the Friday after Thanksgiving 2007, became a couple Dec 16 2007. And right away talked marriage and life. It was amazing.

Birth control. Scares the heck out of me now. My doctor told me the Depot Shot was perfect for me & Skyler, and that I could take it and just let her know when we wanted to get pregnant and it was a done deal. Here's another B word-- b!tch. I guess lying b!tch would be better. After 3 shots luckily we were ready to start trying. I'm now very uneasy about BC after we have this baby.

Birth. I have had my mind set since we started TTC how the birth of this little one would go. Skyler & I will make our way to the hospital, we may (still deciding on this) text just our moms and let them know, and when we have her we'll send out a text, and grandmas & grandpas only will be allowed to visit in the hospital when I'm ready for them to, and everyone else will get to see her when we are at home and rested and ready to see guests. Oh and Skyler will be the other non-medical person in the room with me the whole time.

Best friends. Skyler is my best friend. I don't have any girl friends I could just call up and chat with, so I call him. If we're upset with each other there isn't anyone to call, we just talk about it. We're buddies, and its wonderful.
