You guys! It’s confirmed. We have an appointment in January to see a Fertility Specialist. I know it seems like a long time from now but it will fly. In the mean time, because of my age, the nurse wanted me to start on some supplements to try and help out chances. Besides trying to drop some lbs, I will be preparing my body. Here’s what I gotta take: Prenatal Vitamin (overall good for you)- 1X a day
Folic Acid (helps with PCOS symptoms such as irregular cycles & improves mood) - 200-400 mcg per day
Myo-Inositol (helps with PCOS symptoms such as irregular cycles & improves mood) - - 2000-4000mg per day
CQ10 ( can boost mitochondrial function as well as improving egg quality)- 200mg 3x daily
Melatonin (boosts antioxidants, encourages ovarian function and helps with sleep) 3mg each evening
Fish Oil (helps produce higher quality eggs and helps with reproductive function in advanced maternal age) 1200-1500 mg DON’T EXCEED 3000mg per day.#ttc#ttcat38#ttcjourney#ttcwithpcos#infertility#pcos#pcosweightloss#ttcinhouston#pregnitude#vitacost#megafood
My friend shared this with me the other day. Because she said the instant she saw this picture. She thought about me. This brought so much joy to me. Why? Because it lit a candle in me. I had given up. I’ve been absent from here. I’ve been sad. Depressed and I’ve just put this on the back burner. But not anymore!! I’m back and this time 100%!!
Sorry that I have been MIA. I’ve had to deal with my anxiety. I can’t function. I can’t think straight. I’m constantly in a bad mood. I cry. I get angry. I don’t know how to handle it anymore. I’ve decided to talk to a Dr about it. I think it’s time to turn to medicine. I feel so many different physical symptoms. My throat hurts, my back, my legs. My heart. My soul. Everything. I’m going to take a break and when I come back. I want to be healthy.
Sitting here with my family, makes me take in just how blessed I am. I was literally questioning myself as to WHY I allow this stupid anxiety to take over. Why do I let it ruin my life, when I have so much to be thankful for. Tonight, as I sit here and look at all of my blessings. I will make a promise to myself that I will try my best to let go of any fears that I have. The symptoms that I feel are made by ME! I am my own enemy.
Vacation Day #2 : NEW ORLEANS, LA. We toured the city a little bit. We’ll tour it some more on our way back home. But here is The Tomb of the Unknown Slave. Made of giant chains and hung with shackles, this iron cross honors those unknowns who perished under American slavery.
One of the things I’m trying to do to help reduce my stress is read. Reading used to relax me, interest me, take me to so many imaginary places. I loved it. I want to read a book. Any suggestions?? I absolutely love Thrillers! Fantasy too, like Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and Twilight. But, I am open to suggestions! #books#reading#bookworm#readinginhouston#ttc#ttcpcos#kindle#nook#relaxation
