Mrz.Williams's TTC Story

"For the past year we’ve attempted to make an addition to the family. I was diagnosed with PCOS. Ironically, I was happy to finally have a name for everything I was going through..."
How we met
Sean and I met in middle school but we weren’t friends at all. I guess it was more like, “Mr. Smith! Sean’s bothering me!” (even though he wasn’t). It wasn’t until our junior year in high school that Sean and I actually became friends. He was the best friend a girl could have.
So how did we travel from great friends to being married? Well after high school Sean and I went to different colleges and after our freshman year we came home for the summer and began dating. Going to different colleges made it hard, but we survived a three year long-distance relationship. We dated for four years before tying the knot on August 5, 2006.
It has now been three years and for the past year we’ve attempted to make an addition to the family. We knew having a child would be difficult because in August of 2006 I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
Ironically, when I was diagnosed I was happy to finally have a name for everything I was going through. I’d gain an unusual amount of weight and exercise and healthy eating would not help. In addition to not being able to lose the weight, I was constantly battling irregular menstrual cycles leaving me severely anemic. This is when my GYN referred me to a Reproductive Endocrinologist.
One year later, I am ready to add to the team.
Trying to conceive
The effects of PCOS are still around but I can control my cycles with the help of Prometrium. I also take Metformin to help my metabolic and insulin issues. I have a healthy lifestyle and exercise daily which prompted my doctor to give me the green light for baby making.
So here we are…
Currently, I am on my first round of Clomid, which is to induce ovulation. And hopefully, this will result in a little Williams. Here’s the small twist… with Clomid a woman’s chance of having twins increase to 10%. This in itself makes us excited, two for one!
We are so excited to share our world with a child or two! Sean will be a wonderful father. He’s so full of love and ready to share it with our new recruit, especially since his father died when he was 10. I know Sean will give his all to make every moment count with our little one(s). I can’t wait to give them all that my mother gave me and more. I know I’ll be a great parent because I had an awesome example.
Our little one(s) will be loved enough for a thousand lifetimes.
Here’s to you Baby Williams!
