I'm a fan. Big fan. But sometimes is scares me silly. Today marks a big change.

I still don't know how to formulate the words for my struggles and honestly most of the time I don't want to. I try to keep things light here on the blog but I guess I need to get things out and maybe the change will be easier.

Last week, Zach and I found out that I have PCOS. An ultrasound confirmed our suspicions and showed many many cysts. While poly cystic ovarian syndrome is not an impossible obstacle to overcome, it is making things difficult. Financially we aren't in a place to continue working out our infertility issues so I'm going to start where I can, tackling the PCOS with diet, exercise and herbs.

Well, that was depressing, but it's out. Now to take the leap forward and be done with hiding the pain and loneliness that comes from infertility. I'm going to keep up on here with my progress and maybe I will be able to find strength in the words of friends of family. Who knows, maybe my journey will inspire others around me. Thanks for always being a support, and I hope I don't drive you bonkers with all this:)

Hang in there, girl. There will be answers and help and children for us both some day.
I'm glad you have beautiful Canyon.

I'm sorry for your struggles, Bailee. Your dedication, creativity, and positive attitude are inspirational, and you deserve to have others do some of the worrying for you. Take care of yourself. You are in our prayers.

Your sidebar caption with your family photo should credit you with being a super hero, too!

Love you!

Bailee, I was diagnosed with pcos as well. It took Brian and I a while but we were able to get pregnant with out the drugs and shots and all that stuff. It is possible and I know it is hard but you can do it!
