I started a cycle this past month and because of my new job and this new clinic not being able to work their schedule around, we had to miss it and postpone our tests for another month. So… as much as I need my period to have a baby, I felt like I could have saved myself from that extra cramp. Oh well, I’ll start the progesterone in a few weeks and hopefully we can get this last bit of testing out of the way and start our cycles again.
I’m glad that our doctor is being very thorough and I hope that he finds something that may help us with our baby making process.
On another note..
So, today I was going on a bit of a blog binge of my usual PCOS/Fertility blogs and I came across this excuse that I’ve been telling my family and friends:
PCOS does not mean that we have an excuse: to not look after ourselves, to not exercise, to not be the most healthy version of ourselves we can be. Living with PCOS is difficult but its not an excuse. We are responsible for our own health and bodies and we need to make sure that each day we are doing all we can to get PCOS under control, not just for ourselves but for our families, our children and other women with PCOS.

Whenever anyone gives me words of encouragement, this is the exact thing I tell them: “I have an excuse. With PCOS, I can’t lose weight like normal people. My body just doesn’t function that way”. Reading the post today, just made me realize that my excuses are just my way of limiting myself. It is a way of putting myself down when others are trying to encourage me. This week, my goal is to not give this excuse to any of my friends or family.
