    @Lil Smurfy DP will be carrying the first bub. We will be egg sharing so she will carry my biological child and then I will carry hers.
    How did you get through your fear of needles?

    Ah cool, so that's why you'll need the needles.
    I still silently freak out when I'm waiting for needles. I just take deep breaths and stare at the wall

    Yep that's why. We will have to do a stim cycle pretty much at the same time as each other because we want to use the same donor. Then we will freeze her eggs and she will use mine. It's so exciting but so scary at the same time lol.

    I hate when they talk to you about what they're doing with the blood test. I told them I'd be better if they didn't tell me and just did it. The first nurse couldn't get it so they called another in. DP had to tell them to not talk to me about it haha

    I'm a fellow pcos'er. Just out of interest, what are your cycles like?

I do say doing exercise helps though, even just a 30 minute walk daily, helps relax you too.
    If there are no other health problems weight generally won't cause too many issues. I'm obese (BMI of 49) and I hae PCOS. I'm almost certain I've stopped ovulating. I was 90kg when I fell pregnant with DS but I had no other health problems at the time, the pregnancy was a breeze with minimal MS and I quickly went back to my normal weight after having him. Now, I know that losing even 5% of my body fat will help me get my hormones back in check. It will help with many things at the moment so that's why it's a massive part of my journey.

    Welcome BeautyOfTheSoul and TaylorMade
    @BeautyOfTheSoul how exciting that we get to share the journey with both of you! I'm not keen on needles either so I'm definitely hearing you there. Have to get a BT done this week to test my BGL. My diabetes is playing up :/

    All over the place at the moment. I'd say probably every 6-7 weeks. It used to be a lot worse, every 2-3 months but it's been slightly better the past couple of years. And then it's actually weird when it happens. Sometimes painful, sometimes not. Sometimes longer, sometimes shorter. I don't know what's going on! I also have a fibroid so I'm sure that's contributing to it
