Not a day goes by when I don’t reflect on Andrew’s and my journey toward parenthood and feel so thankful. I remember the frustration of being unable to conceive on our own, and even more frustration when we were unable to conceive through fertility treatments.
I also remember the day I was diagnosed with PCOS. I didn’t feel frustrated that day. I didn’t feel sad. I didn’t feel overwhelmed, at least not initially. What I felt was relief. I felt so thankful to finally have at least a little bit of direction as to what was going on, and how to best address it.
And that isn’t the only time or reason I’ve been thankful for PCOS. There are many more. Many of these are things I thought and felt even in the midst of the heartbreak and frustration of infertility, and many are things I was only able to have gratitude for after I held my daughter safely in my arms for the first time.
Head on over the Recombine to read a list of 7 more reasons why I am thankful for PCOS.
