My baby girl.......







'Special'...is a nickname I have for H. I've called her that forever I think. She is what I've always called an "old soul". She has always seemed wiser than her years. For several years she has litterally kept me sane in the parent department. You know, the one kid who makes you realize you didn't flunk 'Parenting 101' because she turned out ok. ;)

Anyway Special has always talked about having wee ones. I was always thrilled with this idea because I always thought she'd make a terrific mom.

Today she got some news we were expecting but it still hit kind of hard. She has PCOS. Here's a brief summary of that.

Women with PCOS have ovaries that create an abundance of follicles each month without producing an egg. PCOS can contribute to irregular periods, depression, excessive weight gain (despite diet and exercise efforts), acne, and excess facial hair. It is also a common cause of infertility.

So, it can't be cured but it can be managed the Dr. said.
She's my special girl.
