Hi Ladies!

I'm 3DPO and i've been cramping from 1dpo O.O I actually went to the ER thinking something was wrong, but all my tests came back normal. Then today I got my heat spike for charting and then it hit me! Maybe this cramping around my lower abdominal/pelvic area is a sign? I keep feeling like my AF came and when I go to wipe nothing. No blood, not a lot of discharge. So I have no clue. I'm trying not to want to read into this because I have PCOS and haven't had a period since Nov 2011 and was put on Metformin Aug 24 2012. I doubt I'll get pregnant this fast, but it is nice wishful thinking. What do you ladies think?

Hi girls, can I jump in? I'm around 3 DPO, not 100% as I've given up on the opk's. DH and I have been trying for 13 months and lossing heart and awaiting my referral letter to the fertility clinic. anyhow, had a BFP in July but wasn't to be today I've been feeling a little odd, not sick, not queezy but just a little sensitive or off. slight cramping in lower abdomen and feeling really tired, but I've been really busy in work so it could be down to that. why is this so hard???
baby dust to you all and FX for some BF XMAS P's

hippiekinz- We have both been on metformin for about the same amount of time. I started a few days after you. I am also 3 DPO. I have been feeling like poo since last night. I have been dizzy and crampy. And last night the sight of eggs was enough to have me thinking I was going to be sick. I hope these are good signs and not just in my head.

I'm 3DPO too (I think)!! And I'm also feeling cramps/twinges...it's like a pinching sensation, as if AF were to show up any minute, never felt them this long (since Sunday where I think I ovulated), I'm also getting lots of headaches but they don't last long, and I'm sooo sleepy, took a nap today for almost 3 hours :S and I'm already tired, but I think it's way too early to be pregnancy related so trying really hard not to obsess about it. We'll wait and see...what else can be done right? Lots of baby dust for everyone!!

That's neat how close we are we Metformin. What dosage are you on? I'm on the 500mg ER, my doctor won't up the dosage due to my blood sugar level? I am insulin resistant, but I don't have type 2 diabetes. I've been having nausea feeling as well. Everyone around me thinks my "cramps/pains in the lower abdomen" are in my head... I know it's not because I can feel it. So I'm really hoping this is good signs. Do you have a normal cycle with your PCOS? Like I said I haven't had one when coming off the BCP back in Nov 2011. I swear the people at the hospital are like Nov 2011? What are you taking for birth control, it's like, "uhh, nothing I'm trying to get pregnant and just found out I have PCOS." lol. But again, I hope these are good signs - it gives me more hope to see I'm not alone with having these symptoms onto of PCOS as well

i just had to continue reading when i noticed you have IR. Do you know much about it? I have it also along with the dark mark on skin that im very ashamed of because i hate it. The doctor said its from being IR and its called Acanthosis Nigrican :/ i always have trouble ttc with failure it took me 2 years to get pregnant with my 1st. The dr never told me if i had PCOS but i always wondered. Im pretty regular with my periods and i ovulate regularly but the IR has me wondering if i have PCOS

Hi JasiahsMommy,

I actually don't have the dark skin marks. All my doctor told me is that with IR my insulin level is all out of whack and being put on Metformin will help with the insulin levels sort out and COULD, but not always, help with ovulation. Since the insulin levels are not controlled well in my body it can effect ovulation. I'm not sure if you have PCOS, a blood test or ultra sound could determine if you do or don't. I'd look into it because if you have PCOS type 2 diabetes is linked with it. That's another reason why my doctor put me on Metformin, to keep the type 2 diabetes away until I'm much older (when I'd more then likely get it) Also does anyone in your family have PCOS? It seems it is a genetic thing and from me being adopted, I had no clue it was something passed down to me - sadly.
