Try not to feel down, though I know it is hard. Clomid helps so many women. Femara is a good choice too, if clomid doesn’t do the trick. It took me nine months and metformin, but I’m finally 6wks pregnant. You’ll get there too. It can be so depressing though. I’m pullin for you .

Though no two cases are the same..ours sound very similar. DH ended up with a perfectly normal sperm couny /mobility/morph and my hormones seemed fine. My lh and FSH were not exactly 1:1 but not awful. Two round of clomid and I got my bfp and am now 18w along. It’s impossible not to feel down about it..I wish I could make it easier for you. But I just want to assure you then odds are in your favor with this one. GL!!

It is really frustrating to see everyone pregnant or announcing pregnancy. I get ya on that. I’m not sure why I’m not getting pregnant either:( Have you looked into PCOS? I have a slight case of that. Go on Youtube and watch Ellie&Jared because they share their infertility journey and it’s really amazing to watch them go through all of the tests and learn about why she isn’t ovulating. It made me feel a little bit better about the situation. She tried Clomid and it made her feel crazy I guess and switched to Femara and got pregnant with her chunky little baby boy! 🙂

Good luck. I’ll be thinking of you because I know how you feel. We will get through this and have healthy happy babies! The wait will be SO worth it whenever we get to see those little faces.

FutureMrsB123:  I stumbled upon Ellie and Jared through a youtube pcos search and love them!! Their baby is just the cutest 🙂

RMBsbride:  Vent it out girl. I’m in similar shoes. I was diagnosed with PCOS 15 years ago and after going on Metformin (and off bc), my dr said all my hormone levels are normal. Im (usually) ovulating, but still not getting pregnant. Dr just gave me clomid for my next cycle so now here I am stuck on cd35, still havent ovulated and no AF in site. It’s beyond frustrating. Fx clomid gives us some BFPs!

RMBsbride:  100% understand. This is our first medicated cycle (25mg of Femara on CD3, went back for an ultrasound/bw today and doing the trigger shot tonight.) It’s so scary, but then exciting. One minute I get excited and think THIS COULD BE IT…but the next minute I feel like, oh, this won’t be it, AND we’ll be out all the money. Then I start to convince myself that there’s NO WAY it could happen this month because it’s our first month trying the treatments and that never happens on the first month. I’m a hot, emotional mess over this–so I totally understand. Don’t feel alone, lady, there’s other people out there going through the same feelings<33
