    Probably explains why so many of us felt so much better when we were pregnant. I think that I had some mild undiagnosed AI symptoms since I was a teen. I spent the thirteen years from the age of nineteen to the age of thirty two pregnant, nursing or both with my five kids. I felt fantastic during those years.

    Now, I want those pregnancy hormones back, but without the pregnancy, please!
    Hugs,
