I'm doing nothing... they want me on birth control pills for one cycle off of meds to "quiet" my uterus and ovaries.

I'm totally bummed out and just feel like it's the OPPOSITE of having a baby. I can totally comprehend the idea behind it and why it's important with my PCOS to give my body the break... but COME ON!!!! Birth Control! Arg...

So... I'll be here for you ladies. I don't have anything to cheer on in my corner so you have my full and undivided attention

Oh no! Did you have more large cysts? Do they think it's the endo? I'm so sorry Kari-I can't imagine how frustrating that is for you! I hope this month flies and that it's what your body needs to get you preggers

Oh that stinks big time. I am so sorry, I will be praying and thinking of you so this month goes by quickly for you!

BTW, I just looked at your siggy, like I do every day and just noticed we share the same wedding day, although we were married in 2001.

Oh, that really stinks!!! ((((HUGS)))) But, maybe that's all your body needs and you'll get your BFP the very next cycle. Hang-in-there, Kari!

I've had to be on BCPs since October - I can commiserate! Just keep reminding yourself it's all a part of the bigger plan. I hope the next 4 weeks go by quickly for you!! And go enjoy all that stuff the rest you normally can't have while you're TTC

Thanks ladies... I have already bought and mixed one of those Bucket-O-Margarita's and it's in the freezer for me to enjoy for the next 24 days!

Amanda - They didn't do another u/s this time to check my cysts. They are just assuming because of my PCOS that my body is not going to regulate itself without taking a month off now and then. So because I've done three back-to-back medicated cycles they want to give my uterus and ovaries a break and slow down the production of cysts that my body makes in a cycle and see if it helps with the pain. Usually in my baseline u/s my ovaries look like swiss-cheese with atleast 10-15 small cysts on each ovary... just sitting there and waiting to cause problems. Without the BCP they would just keep getting worse and worse. So lets hope this does the trick!

Agnes - That is TOO cool that we share the same wedding anniversary! It was such a beautiful day for us.. we had an outdoor wedding with the most PERFECT summer weather!

Jen - No lap for me unless for some reason the pain doesn't subside within the next few days of starting the pill. She's not convinced it's the endo - she's thinking it's just my PCOS and wants to go that route first. I REALLY, REALLY hope you don't join me!!!! I want you to move on to a DDC girl! BUT.... if you must, I'd be happy to share a bottle of wine with you!

Juli - Oh I am going to enjoy!!! And I'll be sure to rub it in when I can too

Oh, Kari, that sucks! I know its is part of the bigger plan and all that, but I know how hard that is to see when all you want is to be pregnant YESTERDAY!! I hope the time flies for you.

But, hey, like everyone else said...party like a rock star while you can
