With PCOS- I Never Thought I Would Get Pregnant Naturally

My doctors told me at 22 that I had PCOS (Poly-cystic ovarian syndrome) and would likely be unable to get pregnant without a fertility specialist. It made me sad. I’ve always known that I want children, some day. When my partner of 5 months and I found out I was pregnant, I was in complete distress. Here was the situation I never thought I would be in without treatment, but I knew that the timing was not right. I want to be the best mom, when I’m ready, and I was not ready. It was painful (physically and mentally), I still have days where I get a little blue, but I never regret the decision I made for myself and for my future. I am proud.
