I never thought I would get the chance to be a mom. I have PCOS which is Polycyctic Ovarian Syndrome. Thanks to some infertility adventures, and a lot of prayer, we were able to have a healthy girl.
Now, I am a stay-at-home mom of a very active 4-year old. Thanks to my husband, I was able to quit the banking industry of 10 years to raise our little girl.
I have found out that my PCOS is caused by insulin resistance. So diet and exercise play a very important role in my life now. Not only has it caused my infertility, it increases my risk to develop diabetes, ovarian cancer, and heart disease. I have too much to live for now to have those stop me.
Thank goodness for a very supportive husband, family, and the friends here at FatSecret. With their help, I was able to stay focused when it was the hardest, and meet my goal in September 2008. Well, I thought the toughest part was over. in 2009, I "fell off the wagon" due to injury, illness and the depression that came along with gaining weight again.
Getting back into the grove was the best thing that has happened. In March 2010, we discovered that we would be having baby #2. Without fertility! I didn't think that could be possible, but my endocrinologist explained the benefits that diet and exercise could have on this situation. The first trimester was really rough. My hormones were really out of whack and needed constant monitoring and adjusting. But by the second trimester, everything feel into place.
Thank God everything is going well. We are due on November 3, 2010 and my daughter cannot wait to be a big sister. She told me that she prayed not only for snow that February, but for a little brother or sister. God definitely listened.
Love to you all!
