Finally got the smiley face

It has been about 13 months after our loss. Four months of distinctive annovulation cycles. Several months of temperature fluctuations but all circles and ambiguous lines on an ovulation kit. I thought I was going to go cross eyed trying to decipher if it was positive or another negative. On Saturday I finally got a smiley face on an OPK and a distinctive positive on an internet strip. I was jumping around screaming because the night before I was crying and telling my husband I am losing hope that I will ever ovulate again. Maybe it was that added vitamin D from landscaping this weekend. Maybe it was the Metformin and Synthyroid doing it's job. Maybe it was the prenatal vitamins. Maybe it was healthy diet, exercise, and the weight loss. So maybe, I don't get pregnant this cycle. It was just a good feeling to feel not totally reproductively incompetent. To have something happen that is natural for many women but for me it may come around every 13 months.

I told a few friends that I finally got a positive. They said I have PCOS and dismissed it. I never get the smiley face and my LH/FSH ratio is not indicative of PCOS. My Androgens and Insulin  are elevated which is how I got the diagnosis. LH is slightly lower at 3.1 and FSH 4.

  2. Good luck to you! It is a frustrating journey!
