Yesterday I posted the blog about how I beat my PCOS after finding out my symptoms were due to yeast. (See blog for that info - it's titled "How I Beat PCOS.")
I just wanted to post this followup really quick because I believe it's very valuable information. If you take the yeast quiz (see below) and find out you likely have a yeast issue, and if you live in the United States, you can go to this website to find a doctor who will treat you for it: http://hsionline.com/findadoc/
I wanted to post this in my blog because I feel a lot of women in here could benefit from this. I do have this info on my profile already and have posted in the forums about it as well (and in separate blog entries) but I wanted to post a single entry about it so that more people might see it. I feel many women could benefit from this information.
I was diagnosed with PCOS in early 2010. I finally conceived for the first time in January 2011 after TTC for close to
Hey guys, here's my ultrasound pic I promised in my last post. Sorry for the delay!
Baby says hello!
This was at 11 weeks 5 days, and I'm now 12 weeks 4 days.
Hey everyone, I haven't updated my blog in ages! I don't know how many actually read my posts, but thanks to those who do and comment!
So much has happened since I last posted. I charted my BBT for the first time ever in October, and I got pregnant that month! Because of my previous miscarriage I had been terrified when we were TTC, but as soon as I saw the positive test I was overwhelmed with a sense of peace and that everything would be okay. I am now almost 12 weeks pregnant!
So it turned out my period was a week late. I ended up starting on September 9th, which was my husband's and my 5th wedding anniversary - happy anniversary to me.
I'm doing okay. I was a little frustrated over AF showing. I thought I'd be more upset about it, but I think I've finally resigned myself to the fact that God is in control, whether I like it or not! Seriously though, God's plan for me is INFINITELY better than my plan for me. I had to write that on a Post-It note and

So I am now on day 33 of my cycle and still no sign of AF. I've had 28-29 day cycles since April, so it's out of the ordinary for me.
I've taken 3 pregnancy tests. The first one I took on day 26 of my cycle and got a VERY faint line, and several members on here agreed with me that there was definitely a line. The next 2 tests I took, one on day 28 and one on day 31, were both clearly negative. I am so confused!
My endocrinologist is supposed to be calling me today for
It has been a busy month! Between our new exercise plan, work, and spending time with family and friends, I haven't had much of a chance to write. I'm happy to report I've lost 23 pounds so far!
I am currently in the 2-week waiting period to see if this is our month for a BFP! I've had some implantation symptoms but I'm trying not to let myself get too excited until I actually take a test this weekend. I'm a little anxious for Saturday, but I know that no matter
Just wanted to update you on what's been happening! I'm now down 15 pounds since April, and my periods are still 28-29 days long without hormones! I am ovulating regularly, which is great! Unfortunately, I did not become pregnant in June, but I attribute this to the stress of traveling and from getting a bad stomach virus. Stress is not very conducive to conception! So, we are now on month 2 of trying to conceive since the miscarriage.
I had my testosterone and
Chapter 9 – The Good News
I started the Nystatin, but I was not fully prepared for what would happen next. I experienced very severe stomach pains that felt exactly like having food poisoning, only without the vomiting and diarrhea. I was in extreme pain for the first several days of treatment. Vitamin C helped a little, as it helps the body fight off the infection (just like how vitamin C helps with colds), but it was still unbearable. With the doctor’s permission, I lessened
Chapter 7 – Life is Sweeter
I fell in love with The Afters, and they soon became my new favorite band. I bought their album and discovered yet another song that would mean more to me than any other song I’ve ever heard. As I listened to their album, a song that resonated within my soul was “Life is Sweeter.” It honestly felt like it had been written for Lydia. Here are the lyrics:
My heart is giving up
All my plans are broken
Your face is all I see
