For years I was told that I would probably never be able to conceive, at least not naturally. Not that it was impossible, but almost. The reason being is I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). Due to this condition, the doctor informed me that my husband and I would most likely have to turn to medical help in order for us to have a child. It didn’t matter. We tried for almost three years and nothing.

Then late July 2007, I was feeling extremely crappy. So I went to the local Urgentcare only to find out I had bronchitis. I was back a week later because I felt even worse. I still had bronchitis and now I find out I had an urinary tract infection. Back a week later to find out now I had a severe sinus infection. I thought my goodness … what else could be happening with me. Well, the physician decided to do a pregnancy test. I told him go ahead—its gonna be negative. Lo and behold, five to ten minutes later, the doc comes in the room to tell me yes, I am pregnant. My mouth dropped, my heart beat like never before, and I cried. Cried in total happiness.

Basically, I just wanted to let other women know to never give up hope. Doctors are not always right. Just believe in your heart.
