Sorry I've been MIA and didn't respond Mo. I ended up not being pregnant but had a 54 day cycle. Ugh, it's so frustrating. Not that I'm not pregnant but that my body is still all over the place. CCRM opened a satellite office in Menlo Park which is about 20 minutes from my house so my hubby and I had a consult there. We're going to try metformin alone for 6 months and if that doesn't get us pregnant then we're going to do an IVF cycle, CCS testing, and then transfer when we're ready. I really want to try the metformin since we found out that I am definitely PCOS - not PCOish like my other doctor (at RMANY said) and metformin is supposed to help significantly with PCOS patients egg quality. She can't believe I've never been put on metformin so she really wants to try that before going straight to IVF and I'm totally on board with this.

L and O are 9 1/2 months old. I can't believe it. I've started planning their 1st birthday party which I'm very excited about. O is crawling all over the place, even standing by himself which is just crazy. Lucy is rolling over, not yet crawling, but pushing herself up a lot when she's on her tummy. She's extremely observant whereas Oliver is a doer. He is a typical boy I feel like. Watching them develop has been really cool.

I hope everyone else is doing great!

Just wanted to give everyone a quick update if anyone is still on here. We're starting an IVF cycle this month! We're with CCRM San Francisco, hoping for good results. I've been on all of the supplements I was on last cycle when we got 2 normal embryos, and we've added in metformin. Doctor says there's some evidence that metformin helps egg quality in women with PCOS. Here we go!

Baseline ultrasound tomorrow morning at 7:45, meeting with Dr. Jun to talk about protocol, and I'll also have to get some blood drawn for amh, fsh, prolactin, etc. I can't believe we're doing this again. So exciting though! Wonder how the hormone headaches are going to be with twins??

Hi ash! I read your whole thread before our first appt with CCRM in Menlo, Dr. Jun is our doctor too, isnít she the best?? Congrats on starting a new cycle, hopefully your hormone headaches arenít too bad! Iím starting my estrogen priming tomorrow and will likely start stimming mid-November. So nice to have someone on here going to the same doctor as us!

I got my calendar. We start BCPs tonight, 14 days of that then starting gonal F and menopur, and cetrotide during the last phase of my stims. Retrieval tentatively set for 11/22-11/25. I'm pretty sure I normally stim for 12 days but we'll just have to see how it goes. I'm in shock that it's happening so fast but excited to!
