View Full Version : PCOS, want #2, getting frustrated
05-03-2010, 12:14 PM
Hi all, im 31, have a 28 month old DD and have wanted baby #2 for about a year now. Hubby on the same page and been trying. month after month i keep feeling more and more like a huge failure. I hoped that baby #2 was going to be easy like #1. Yes we had a few hiccups, but HCG test, blood work and 1 month of follicle study and here she is. the most wonderful person i have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I so desperatly dont want her to be an only child. i'm 1 of 6, and hubby only child. while he doesnt see it, he missed out on so much and it hurts me to know that i can cause this pain on my daughter. Has anyone been thru this with PCOS and come out on the other side? i told him that i was done trying, done putting myself thru the horror month after month of knowing i failed again. I know quitting isnt the answer, but how do i now quit? Please. i need to hear from someone who has managed to not quit. Oh also my doc wants to give me all these meds which i cant bring myself to take, i dont feel right messing with nature. I dont feel right making my body do things it wouldnt be doing otherwise. the best i can do is the follicle studies and the fertility tests, which frustrates my dr. im torn between what i want and what im comfortable with. In a perfect world i would just get pregnant with a baby with out medical intervention and that would be it. Thanks for reading and i hope it makes sense, im a little emptional right now.

Hi AddyMOM, thanks again for your reply, its nice to know i am not completely alone with the PCOS. Actually, i was talking to my cousin who is like my big sister, she is 30, has PCOS and has two boys around two years apart and i brought up the issues you are having and her advice to you, was actually to use the Instead Cups and the Pre-Seed, thats how she was actually able to get pregnant with her second son. She also suggested CLomid, i know you said you want your body to do what is would naturally, but hey every littel bit helped her, and within 4 months of the cups, the lub, and two months of clomid... BAM she was pregnant with her second, granted that is not the case for all with this horrible non-working plumbing we got blessed with (ugh...) and the other suggestion, from not only her but my very very large Italian family... have fun with the practicing part, dont make it "we must make baby", look back to when your relationship was still very young and fresh before you were married, before there were any children, adn just do the horizontal mambo for the sake of the getting horizontal. I have been pregnant before but unfortunately miscarried, so i know the feelingin of disaapointment and depression and anxiety and the weight that feels like it sits on your shoulders when you want that positive test and it feels like and eternity and then its a BFN and or you are no longer prego... Have you tried working out? not like going crazy body builder woman type things, and i dont know you or your husbands life style, but my cousin also recommends walking every other day and doing things together that involve working out with your husband, it not only brought them closer together but helped increase her libido and she cared less about trying more about just the passion, it also increased her metabolism etc. and it helped with some PCOS symptoms. I have some other information on stuff i been finding too to help those of us "in-need" so hit me up whenever you feel the need to and of course---Happy Humping
