Seriously I have got a lot of hormones going on.
This is the time in the cycle where I actually feel good! Sure I have twinges of pain, but I am not a crazy person for once and physically I feel close to normal - even the depression seems to have started to lift. Some people say that progesterone gives them a sense of well being - not me . . . hate it because I am a basket case and I cry too much. Its the time when I have my follicles producing so much estrogen that I actually feel normal, plus my shirts look good.
This makes me realize a few thing about my future:
1) PCOS gives me lots of unopposed estrogen - which is why I characterize this as "normal". This could be dangerous long term if I keep my uterus (endometrial hyperplasia and cancer and such) . . . but after I'm done with it . . . cest la vie. (crystal ball says hysterectomy is in my 40's)
2) This also makes me realize - menopause will suck. I don't think I will deal with it well - especially since I am not dealing with this very well. (but I guess I will get a trial of that when I hit IVF-land.)
3) I will have a great rack when I finally get pregnant.
Tomorrow I get to see how many follicles are really putting out this much estrogen. Lets hope not too many!
