@Running Elley: Yeah, we are in a very similar position. We’ve lived together for almost 3 years, we bought a house together a few months ago. So I only sort of feel the “just be a couple” thing because…that’s what we’ve been doing. We’re (as in, me and you) also pretty much the same age (though my Fiance is 23, not 26) but he would be at least 24 or even 25 before we had a child IF we were lucky. I don’t think he’s able to wrap his head around that part just yet. He’s like “I’m 23, you could get pregnant while I’m 23.” Lol. Instead of “Even if you got pregnant tomorrow, I’d be 24 at the end of a pregnancy.” I think it’s sort of a guy thing.
@Jenn23: So are you guys going through with the IVF? If so, I’d love to hear your experience as it progresses.
@sweetkate: Thank you. I’m going to sound way out of my league now, but how exactly does an IUI work? Injectibles? (I’m googling this as soon as I’m done replying, but I figure you’d explain it differently than google, if you don’t mind, lol). Congratulations on your pregnancy. 🙂
@MerryC: I’m going to ask you the same question as I asked @sweetkate — what exactly is IUI/injectibles? Also, IVF wasn’t as arduous as you thought it would be? That’s a good sign! I’ve heard mixed reviews on it. Congrats on your BFP!
@Audreysdance: We’re sort of decided on June 2012 (our dating anniversary and our birthdays are that month) and we’ll have been married a few months at that point. I think it takes the pressure off our wedding month for him, psychologically. I’ll go listen to that podcast as soon as I’m done replying – thanks!
@heathaah: That is something else to consider. I’m more overweight than I’d like to be (thank you PCOS) so at my post-op, Doc and I are going to discuss some sort of hormone balancing that we can work on prior to TTC to help manage my weight better. I carry my weight in my stomach, like the typical PCOS’er and think it may increase our chances to get that worked out prior to really giving it a shot. Thank you for sharing. 🙂
@Candy_Nee: Right? I think it’s weirder to talk about the guy stuff than the girl stuff too, haha. That’s good that it should be fixed after that and you guys should be pretty good to go! Good luck to you! Xx
@Ms Mini: Thank you for sharing! Congrats! Based on most responses, Metformin has been the most helpful thing (other than IUI/IVF and other more extensive treatments).
@jaguar: Yeah…I’ve been tracking my stuff for 1.5 years (since trying to figure out WTF was going on) and my cycles are so wonky. Sometimes it’ll be 90+ days, other cycles it would be 35-40. I have a pretty strong feeling I will at least need something to regulate and help with ovulation. I don’t think mine will happen naturally, but like Fiance and I said earlier, we won’t know until we try. Baby dust to you! Xx
