PG w/1st-PCOS-due December 14th


Hi

So Im 4+5 with my first, I have PCOS, and conceived on our 4th month of clomid. Im continuing with metformin 500mg p/d through the 1st trimester.

Id love a buddy who is in the same boat, or who has gone through this before. I dont get any blood work done for another 3 weeks so no idea until then if all levels are as they should be.
Ive booked an early scan at 8weeks for May 4th so hoping to see a heartbeat then. This limbo land of not knowing if everything is ok is torture!

Ive no major symtoms yet to complain about, but Ive been reassured by ladies on here that they'll come in week 5/6.

Anyone out there the same?

Massive congrats on your !!!

I see you have been pregnant before. How was the pregancy for you? was it any different because of the PCOS?
I wont have anything done for another 3 weeks at that point they will take my blood, but Ive booked the early scan because I cant wait until 12 weeks to find out if everything is ok.

edit: sorry you said you didnt use clomid "this time" so I presumed you had been pregnant before. I could be wrong?

Thanks and no I haven't. I just meant I didn't use clomid this cycle of ttc yet.
Yeah I was surprised they wanted to do the ultrasound at only 6 weeks but I'm not complaining!!!! Its hard to not just tell everyone but my hubby wants to wait to make sure everything is OK.

Ah ok, lucky you managing to do it naturally. We feel like we did it naturally even with the clomid because another 2 months and we were going for an IUI!

Im bursting to tell everyone, but Im going to control myself. I told my best friend thats it. We'll tell our families after the 8w scan, and everyone else after the 12w.

Are they 2 boxers you have? We have 2 boxers too!!

Hi ladies. Congrats on the BFP's.

I too have PCOS, fell preg on letrozole (Femara) (our third cycle) after three failed cycles on clomid. I was deemed resistant to clomid (50mg, 100mg, 150mg). it was our second cycle of IUI!

I still cannot believe that it is real. We are both so excited, we have been waiting so long.

I am on 500mg metformin p/d.

Did you have ovarian drilling, lap and dye done? I did in December 2012. Only after that I started to ovulate! It's going to be an exciting year.

Congrats and all the best. X

I fortunately didnt have to go thru any of that not sure if the clomid would would of worked for me cause i stopped it to lose weight and thats what triggered my ovulation! 42 lbs lighter now im def hoping for a much healthier pregnancy than if i would of been heavier!

Hey girls can I buddy up?
Am due on dec 13th, been TTC with PCOS for over 3 years. Had lap and dye, clomid, nothing worked. Took some time off TTC for a few months before ovarian drilling later in the year and fell pg naturally! Over the last 8 months I've also lost 4 stone which I'm sure has helped massively at letting me ovulate naturally. Was in metformin but now stopped. So excited to start this journey!
