I've never heard of PCOS developing as a result of either medication or miscarriage. While it would have made sense for the doctor to mention the cysts before, they're not really relevant to doing...

Is your spouse your best friend?

Well, are they? I told dh he was NOT my best friend the other day, and it really hurt him. Curious if I'm the only one.

Way to go, mama! I also had a fist-under-chin baby boy born at 7:30 pm. :) Very impressed at your focus. Once I hit transition, it's hard for me to stop screaming.
