Krissy I'm so happy to have a fellow reality show junkie!! I have watched 19 kids and counting. It blows my mind how cool, calm and collected they always are. I'm like is this for real?! I'm into Survivor, Amazing Race, Big Brother, The Voice... all those kinds of shows. Actually, the only "unreal" show I love is Grey's Anatomy.
Ok, about me. I'm the old fogey here. My name is Misty. My DB is Jake. I am 38, he is 25. Yes, you would call that a cougar I suppose lol. We are not married. We've been together 2 years now and I told him if he wants to have kids it has to be very soon as I'm running out of time!! I have PCOS so when Jake decided yes he'd like us to have a child my doctor started me on Metformin. That is for insulin resistance which PCOS causes. It helped my cycles (I'd go months without a period) but they were still long. I don't know if I was ovulating or not. So after about 3 months on Metformin my doctor prescribed me Metformin. Much to my total shock, it worked the first month!! I'm on pins and needles cuz it just seems too good to be true. Plus I'm old and overweight lol. Kind of a shocker about me is I have 2 daughters from a previous relationship (divorced him). I was a teenage statistic... I had my first daughter less than a month after I turned 16 and my 2nd daughter a month before I turned 18. That makes them 22 and 20 years old now. And I'm starting over! Am I crazy or WHAT?! Due to my age I'm automatically considered high risk so I will be going to my OB and also to a perinatologist. They will do a lot of tests for genetic abnormalities and will watch the baby closely to make sure HE (I want a boy so I'm trying power of positive thinking! hee hee) is growing like he should. I believe my next ultrasound will be with the perinatologist on the 23rd of this month. I'll be 11 weeks then. So glad to be here on this NON eggshell walking thread!! ALL are welcome!!
