So I have been MIA because I've been extremely depressed about the whole conceiving thing. Right now I'm in a 74 day cycle and being sent to a specialist for my PCOS. PCOS is the bane of my existence right now. Went to my doctor 1.5 weeks ago who did a blood test that came back negative but hubby and I danced just a couple nights before that. Can't tell you when because tracking has been too depressing. I've had a lot of "symptoms" but they are also all symptoms of out of wack PCOS hormones. I'm freaked right now. Part happy part scared. Hubby is telling me to calm down because he's afraid of seeing me crushed and wants me to wait to call my doctor until I take a test again in the morning. What do you ladies think? It's an internet cheapie and I'm afraid of a false positive:

Oh and I have a bottle of provera on my bedside table I'm supposed to start after my RE appointment in a week...

*squee* I had such a hard time sleeping last night but when I did wake up this morning I went ahead and POAS and it's still positive. I hope my doctor puts in the order ASAP for my blood work.

Trying not to get ahead of myself but I really want to tell my mom and MIL. Holding back though because I want to make sure the egg is sticky. FX

Taken at 6 pm the line changed color about 3 seconds in and then this picture is the 3 minute mark.

So my doctor that has ordered my blood test before is out of town for the week. I got redirected to the OB nurse that says if it's showing up on a dip strip then that's that. First OB appointment Friday and Ultrasound November 4.

Thank you for all the support, comfort, advice, and motivation here ladies
