Docs today.... (warning, too much info for blokes)

My body has never really sorted it self out after having Jack. Which is fine and normal for a while. But even after stopping breastfeeding in Oct/Nov things are not back to normal.

For example, I have not managed to shed any weight. If anything, I have gained weight. My periods have not comeback properly, with one Oct/Nov time and one Feb, and that's it. And no, I'm not pregnant. I tested in Jan, and again last week. And added to that I am getting hairer... on my chin, lower arms and shins. It's not an attractive look!

Knowing a few people who have PCOS I started to wonder if that's what's wrong with me. So I booked the apt with the doctor and went his morning. And he thinks it's a possibility. So he took 3 tubes of blood to do various tests including thyroid (which should come back within a day or two), and hormone levels (inc breastfeeding hormones which might still be high in my system despite stopping months ago). They'll be back next week - but I wont be here as I'm off to my Dads for the week. So I have another apt booked for the day after we get home.

It's not a massive problem.... it's treatable. And it might not even be PCOS. But it's not what I wanted to have to worry about. Especially when Jack was so easy. The thought of struggling to conceive is not a great one.
