Well, holy crap.

 

In July, I started experiencing severe pelvic pain, and following months of testing, was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis, PCOS, and endometriosis. I got married in September, which TOTALLY SUCKED I was in so much pain! I have always wanted to be a mother, and my gyno pretty much told me to resign myself to a long road of difficulty and fertility treatments. I finally finished PT in December and was relatively pain-free. We started TTC last month. My gyno said he wanted to start me on Clomid next month, to increase my chances.

 

Let me just say... that was not NEARLY as hard as I was led to believe it would be, LOL.

 

My step daughter told me 3 days ago that I was going to have a baby soon. I asked her if she knew something I didn't, and she said yes. I started what I thought was a VERY light period Monday, but then it stopped Tuesday... yup. Implantation! I'm due October 16th. Stopping all of my IC meds cold turkey makes me a little nervous. Hoping for the pregnancy remission many people rave about! Man, I hope this sticks. This baby is so, so wanted.
