Hi am very new to this sort of chatting but thought I would give it a try.
Here is my story. After ttc for 2 years my husband and I finally got our bfp only to lose our baby 2 weeks later, surprisingly 6 weeks after the miscarriage I got another bfp and my ob put me on progesterone and clexane injections to see if this would help but unfortunately I lost the baby again at 10 weeks. It has now been 6 mths since our last miscarriage and since then have been diagnosed with PCOS which is really frustrating. Even though I ovulate and I get my periods I have a short luteal phase where my follies do not mature enough. My ob has now put me on 50mg clomid which I started yesterday and 250mg metformin. We are hoping this combo works and we get a sticky bean this time. Will keep everyone updated on progress.
Welcome Kristie, I too have pcos and have been on metformin and clomid so we're in the same medical boat it seems. DH and I have been ttc for almost a year. No bfp here yet. I'm so very sorry about your miscarriages. It's one of my biggest fears with pcos that we'll finally get our baby just to lose it. my heart just aches for you. Fx that the meds will help get you a nice little sticky bean! Welcome to the group
Another big temp drop for me today so I'm feeling pretty sure there's been no ov. Oh well, just waiting for AF now. If she hasn't shown herself by cd30 I'll go ahead with provera and then onto my next clomid cycle.
Also, today is the one year anniversary of DH and I deciding to start ttc. Took a few more weeks to finish up bc and really start trying but we decided it was time to start a year ago today... really didnt think a year later we'd still be ttc...sigh kinda a bummer to the day.
Yes...yay for 10 weeks!!! According to my midwife, I am 10 weeks Tuesday, but considering I know when I ovulated (early that month), I set my tickers according to my calculations.
I haven't been on much, so I guess I could give everyone a little update. I'm still feeling pretty bad most days, so I'm hoping that ends soon. I had my 1 hour glucose tolerance test a couple weeks ago, and the results were "borderline", so I had to fast tonight and I go in the morning for the more extensive 3 hour test. Wish me luck ladies as I don't need gestational diabetes on top of all the other difficulties I tend to have during pregnancy!
Hi all, I'm new to the site. I also have PCOS. Was diagnosed at 18yo and told I'd never have kids. Even took Clomid, nothing. Only had 4 periods 2010. Ended up with a surprise 6 mos later and got my little miracle in August 2011. Now we're trying for #2! I never had CM until I had my Mirena removed in Feb. DH and I BD this afternoon and I had EWCM a few hrs later and all night tonight, with a little cramping and lower back ache. On CD 11 of a 27 day cycle. I'm new to all this so.... any advice? Anyone know if EWCM is on the day before you O or on O day? I don't like OPK, tried em and i guess because of my PCOS they just don't work... used one the cycle before BFP with DS and didn't get anything so I'm using the CM method for now.
Hi Amanda, welcome to the group! I also am Amanda actually haha but on here I go by Mama I also have pcos and love hearing that you ha a successful pregnancy! DH and I are working on #1 and feeling very frustrated by it all. It's nice to hear there's hope! Can I ask how things happened with your first? Were you on any meds? Had you just recently stopped meds?
I'm currently on metformin and have been on clomid for 5 cycles but the clomid stops working after just a cycle or two unless we up the dose. I'm taking this cycle off clomid to just see what my body does on its own. Then next cycle I'm back to clomid.
I too have found opks don't work great for me. When I ovulate the line gets darker but I've never had a truly positive test. I find temping is the only way for me to know if I really ovulate or not. Cm tracking is tricky with pcos as it can affect it and I know with clomid it can dry up cm so it's very hard to track ov that way. If its going the way it should you should usually have ewcm for a day or two before ov. Then after ov it would go away. Do you track bbt? If not I'd recommend it. Fertility friend is a great tool for ttc.
