We’ve only been actively TTC for a few months. However, I’m seeing on my first cycle of charting that I’m not ovulating, and I also have PCOS. Even though I’ve been taking 80mg of metformin for over a month, I still have all the side effects: excess hair growth, slow weight loss, off cycles, etc…
I’m in a hurry to get pregnant. I feel so ready- I don’t want it to take forever.
I plan on going to my doctor in a few months, so that I’ll have a few more charts to show him.
I just want him to give me Clomid right now to make this happen.
I’m usually a rational reasonable person, I swear…but when I start thinking of all the turmoil people go through to have children, how long it takes…jeez, I just feel….angry and frustrated that I may have to go through a whole emotional/physical ordeal to get there.
After getting married, I haven’t been on the bee much, but I think I need to get back into the supportive community here. I feel like I’m stressing my DH out, although he has been wonderful, positive and totally supportive.

@Evie19: Aww I can feel your frustrations. You feel you’re in a race against time I bet. Keep charting and trying. Hope the doctor can do more for you.

@CatyLady: Thanks guys. 🙂
Do I need to start doing yoga? How can I help myself from feeling that it won’t happen easily? The fear is getting me down.

@Evie19: I am sorry its taking a few months to get your BFP. I know how you feel as I have been trying for 11 months/cycles and I actually just started IUI. It doesnt get easier and there really isnt much I can tell you or that you can do to take any bad feeling away. However, staying positive, talking to bees here and having a DH that has your back always helps getting through painful BFN cycles. Also, if you are charting, then maybe you should join the Charters Thread. The ladies there are wonderful and super supportive. GL and FX for your BFP!!!!

@Evie19: I understand where you are coming from with letting the fear get you down. This is cycle 6 for us. I feel somedays like I’m looking for symptoms of a problem. It’s like I refuse to let myself think that getting pregnant may actually happen. I’ve convinced myself that it’s not going to be an easy process. It’s frustrating and I feel like I’m slowly going crazy!
Hang in there! Sending you all the luck in the world! 🙂

@MrsR4ever: Thanks for the kind words.
The thing is, it’s not that I’m discouraged because it’s taken a few months- I know that isn’t a long time. I’m feeling so sure that we’re going to have a long difficult road ahead of us…and even though I have PCOS, I wish I could be more positive. Plenty of women get pregnant easily with that condition…why do I have to feel defeated this early on?

@WillowB: Exactly! How can we become more positive? I’m going to start trying yoga a few days a week….

@Evie19: I was checking out some yoga classes last week. I think it may be a good thing for me to bring my stress level down a little! 🙂
