Sorry I haven't posted in a few days, I've been taking care of my mama, she had her wisdom teeth cut out this week. Anyway I was board and found this pic above of a Polycycstic Ovary(PCOS) & a Normal Ovary. I've gotten to see my Ovaries on ultra sound twice.. The first time a nurse did it and I didn't really know what I was looking at, but the 2nd time my Dr did it and he said.. see how ot looks like theres a beaded necklace around your ovaries... That's your polycystic Ovaries.
So that was interesting to me to see that and have him explain it some to me:) I like to be able to picture things in my head..lol He then said that I was a great candidate for IVF again and he thought it would work really well.. And that it would be easy to over stimulate me, so I won't have to use as many drugs. Also because we won't need as many Eggs because dh and I will not allow them to discard any of our "Live Embryos". Please don't judge me... We are both very "Pro Life" and believe that life starts when the sperm meets the egg.. Like I said please don't judge me, this is just our beliefs and convictions.. And I can promise you all that I will not judge you.. I'm not God.. I only have to do what is right for me & answer for myself..
Anyway is so very late at night and I'm super tired. In fact I'm so tired that it actually hurts..lol No sane person should be up this late..lol Good night and God Bless you all
