Officially a Cyster Sister

A few weeks before Christmas I called my Dr's office to ask if there's anything we can do about my long cycles.  I was really tired of AF sticking around for 2+ weeks so they decided to send me in for an ultrasound to see what's going on.  The Dr that read the results of the ultrasound unofficially confirmed my PCOS suspicions.

I went to the Dr again yesterday for a mid-cycle ultrasound and he officially confirmed the diagnosis.  He told me I'm ovulating, I'm just not ovulating well.  He asked me to do some research on Metformin and call and let him know if I want to take it or not. I'm not to keen on the gastrointestinal side effects, but if it will help get me pregnant I'm all for it.

The day I had the first ultrasound I also found out my best friend is pregnant again. She was so worried about upsetting me that I was actually the last person she told. I'm truly happy for her, but at the same time it's hard. I still go through phases when I wonder what I did to deserve the struggle I'm going through. I wonder why there are so many women out there having babies that don't want them when there are so many that so and can't have them. I realize these are normal thoughts that everyone struggling with infertility has, but it still doesn't make it any easier.

Most of the time I am content. I am positive I will get pregnant, it's just a matter of time. Atleast that's what I tell myself. As of right now that's how I feel.

I'm going to leave you with a few pictures I took around Christmas. Hope you enjoy, I know I did.

This was me and my mom Christmas Eve at my Grandparent's house

A little blurry, but I love it. This is my Grandpa and cousin Tara sitting at the piano entertaining us.

Back at my parents house. My dad and niece Em reading Twas the Night Before Christmas to everyone.
