They found the PCOS through my bloodwork and an U/S. My prolactin and testosterone levels were really high. And my ovaries were FULL of old follicles thus blocking new ones. They would just never pop and would sit in my ovary. I had a laparascopy in Sept of 07 and got PG with Ava in Dec. I had to have the surgery because I had debilitating pain from a endometrial cyct on one ovary. (blood filled cyst) It was 4cm. So they took that out, drilled holes in my ovaries to get the old eggs out and flushed my tubes as well as got rid of the Endo.

Anyway, it doesn't ALWAYS have to do with diabetes. I don't have anything wrong with my insulin levels. One reason we are going to TTC even sooner is that we don't want any trouble from the PCOS or ENDO.

I think I developed it sometime between DS2 and Ava, I never had problems with my weight, fatigue, hormones, hair loss or any of the other issue I've had until 2006.

I have a couple books on PCOS I can send you FFS if you want.
Cass, thank you so much for chiming in. It is nice to know that the dx is not the end of the world I guess maybe i was just taking my fertility for granted and now this hit me like a slap in the face, KWIM?

Also, I did not mean to imply that everyone with PCOS is Diabetic, but a large percentage of Type 1 diabetics also have PCOS. Does that make sense?

I had a few symptoms start cropping up before i had Xan, but the rest were much more noticeable post-partum. i just found out my mom also had PCOS, and had no trouble conceiving either me or my brother. I am feeling better. I will let you know about the books once i have a 100% diagnosis. Thank you so much

Now I know why you like to do this Momma!" She's 8 and SHE GETS IT!!

annie, that is soooooo cute!

C sleeps on her belly & scoots around her crib on her belly, so I shouldn't be surprised that it happened with all of that rubbing against the thin cashmere. Now I need to buy a replacement.

Oh, and news from Joyce--for some reason the monkey print oversold during relists today and another mama beat me to paying, so I'm getting a refund. That print is so cute, but I didn't need it, and Sara....if you're lurking, you didn't need the monkeys, anyway.

So, hopefully I can use the PP for a wool onesie.
Di, ss about the batik bum onesie I am the one that kept nagging you to start using it, and now it's damaged. I hope you find a great replacement (with really a really big opening at the top for C's head )
And about the monkey dipe. You are soooo right! I ended up with that TIAN and i have a SP custom coming, plus like six diapers waiting for me at home I do NOT need it.

Xander does the same thing!
