So, I have been super MIA forever! I do occasionally check in on my girls from TTC#1 and just kind of stalk, but I don't usually take time anymore to do much else. I don't know how I get so busy!!
To any newcomers who I haven't "met" yet, I'm Ashley, mother to Grace (21 months) and I have PCOS. (I think it's fairly mild)
Anyhoo, we were going to wait until miss Grace was around 3 years old to try for #2, however I feel an urgency right now to begin ASAP. My ovaries are going insane again (haven't been on the pill for ages) and today I had an ultrasound due to suspicions my doc had that I may have a cyst that has been causing me pelvic pain. My doctor called me this evening after hours to give me results. The US showed a "complex" cyst on my right ovary, and I am to have a follow up US on Nov. 7th to check on it. I was also put on the pill again today :/
I'm really nervous, because I don't know much abut this cyst, but I did read up on them and that was a bad idea. Now I'm totally babying myself in fear of this cyst bursting, or twisting and cutting off blood flow to my ovary. So, I believe that as soon as my doctor gives us the go-ahead, we are going to start TTC #2. I guess I feel like it's "use it or lose it" when it comes to my ovaries. If this cyst goes away with no harm done, I don't want to risk another one jeopardizing my ovary's function, leading to my little sweetie never having a sibling. I just feel like having a sibling is such a rewarding thing in life, and I'd love for her to have that, especially as an adult!
For now, I am not even having intercourse. First, because it hurt way too much to do it, and now because I was told not to by my doctor. So it really is something that has to wait AT LEAST 6 weeks. I'm guessing a few months. I will probably stay on the pill at least 3 months to get things as close to back to normal as possible.
Kind of excited right now, although I'm super bummed and in pain right now with this cyst. TTC is stressful a lot of the time, but it's also pretty exciting, especially when you succeed!
