Breaking News!

Judah turned one a month ago, hard to believe. I ended up having some symptoms of PCOS flair up. My weight would not come off, my skin was breaking out, losing a ton of hair (long after the norm for postpartum hair loss). I had some strange spotting and then *finally* had my first period since his birth when he was about 11 months old.

Because PCOS can cause fertility problems or make it difficult to become pregnant, as you may not even ovulate when symptoms are going rampant, I never dreamed this was what I was going to get instead of my period the following the month...................

Eek!

Since I have only had one period and they can sometimes be long cycles I was not sure when my next period was going to be due. I was testing in the hopes that my body would finally chill out enough and start the next cycle. I did NOT expect this. Daniel didn't either - he thought I was pranking him.

I am 7 weeks and due mid-June!

Wow!!! So exciting! Congrats! I must admit, I'm a tad jealous. ;) I wanted to have a June baby next since both my mom and Septtro are teachers and would be able to help out all summer. But...my body is doin crazy stuff too - thanks PCOS. So we shall see. :)

I'll be curious to see if this is a boy or girl!!
