I was moved by your post. I too have PCOS. When our dr. told us we had only a tiny chance of getting pg, we did not sweat it because we had wanted to adopt anyway. We did and have been thrilled with that decision.
I DID, however, lose 10% of my body weight, which didn't put me anywhere near my goal, but it was enough to get pregnant (we weren't trying). I am writing this to let you know that I have heard many people share that they also got pg with PCOS after losing 10% weight. The common thread, though, is that none of the stories I have heard have been from people who would only have been happy with a birth child. Does that make sense? Maybe there really is something to alleviating stress in the whole process?
Finally, the one thing I regret during our adoption process was not living my life fully. I was so myopically focussed on children that I forgot to live in the present and enjoy my dh. Just a thought to leave you with.
