    I am sorry you feel lonely and I can't imagine the feeling after miscarrying three times.

    What does of metformin are you on? Maybe the doctor can up it? I am on 2000mg which is the most I have been able to take. I was also given Phentermine which is a weightloss med that helps the carb cravings. Insurance doesn't cover it in the states but I lost 7 pounds not being able to work out over a month when broke my tailbone.

    You are not alone.

    I have PCOS as well, and on 1500mg Metformin a day. I got pg in April, but lost it as well.

    I totally relate with your frustrations...I swear EVERYWHERE I go I see pregnant women. And all my friends seem to be getting pregnant. It's just babies and bumps at every turn. I am sick of logging on to facebook and seeing another friend announce their pregnancy, or post pictures of their growing bellies.

    I have to ask, were you taking the Metformin when you conceived? And did you stop taking it when you did, or did you continue taking it? I'm just curious as I've read some conflicting information on which is better.
