Oh happy weekend! I've been looking forward to you all week long!! Actually, I didn't even have too bad of a week at work this week - but, it's always nice on Friday at 6:00 to realize that you don't have to be back at the 5th floor at One Pensacola Plaza until 8:00am Monday morning!!

Secondly, I have found the most wonderful doctor! I just love her!! Some of you know all the struggles and tears I've had with the whole no-baby thing. It just hasn't happened for us. We've been trying for the past 2-3 years and it's just been hard the whole way through. At the end of last year, I was actually diagnosed with PCOS. While I was very discouraged and upset and mad and all those other millions of emotions that came flooding through, it actually was a blessing in disguise to FINALLY find out why we have been unsuccessful in the baby department. This is because I found a doctor who actually took the time to sit down with me and talk me through things. So, the process is just starting - but, I've had a BUNCH of blood work done, went back and saw my doctor this past Thursday.....and GOOD NEWS!!!! I can start the medicine that has been very successful in helping other women with PCOS to get pregnant before they have to try with actual fertility medicine!!!!! I was SOOO happy! The doctor told me she had such good feelings about all this and just knows that this time next year, I'll have a baby to cuddle!!! So, I started my medicine this morning and as long as I follow the diet she gave me and take all my vitamins, we should start seeing some real progress!!!

Did a little bit of scrapping last night! Went over to the Scrapping the Music Challenge Blog - LOVED that song!! Scrapped a wedding picture....the hubs and I celebrate our wedding anniversary this coming Thursday!! Troy told me he made reservations at an AWESOME place in downtown P'Cola! Can't wait!!!!!!! Also can't believe that we will have been married for 4 years!!! Where has the time gone!

And last but not least, and I'm kinda late putting this one up - the newest ScrapMojo challenge is up!!! Make a loooovee equation!

May you all have the bestest weekend ever!

I am so glad you have finally found a doctor who can help you. We struggled for about two years to concieve, but kept it to ourselves. So I know how it feels girl. The trigger for us seemed to be getting ourselves out of a stressful situation and us both losing a bit of weight. Then it just happened natually, by surprise!!!
I wish you all the luck in the world with the new diet and vitamins and try and keep the stress down to a minimum! I am rooting for ya!
Love the layout btw!

Somehow I missed the paragraph about PCOS! I'm so glad you have a diagnosis now & can be treated. We found out last summer I have endometriosis & that's what's rearing it's little ugly head in the fertility department.

We don't have much chance the "natural" way, but have seen a Fertility Specialist & have HOPE for procedures to enhance our chances of becoming parents.

Hope this medicine (metformin? That's the one I always hear them mention with PCOS?) helps & soon you will have your BFP! :)
