@Rosie- Oh honey, of course it’s not too early for wine!  I’m so sorry that you’re feeling this way.  Whatever it is that makes you feel better, do it.  Is there something else you can plan?  A trip, a project, something fun?  I have to do that to make myself feel better too (thus our office got repainted this week).  If today is one of the days where you need to take a bath and then lie on the couch all day, you need to do it.  Order in, send DH to go get some RedBox movies, and just relax all day.  It’s important to make yourself feel better.  I’m so sorry that you are feeling this way, and you may always vent all you like!

@Rosie Girl: so sorry you are having a bad day.  I think now is the perfect time for you to  pour drink as the saying goes “it’s 5 o’clock somewhere” Hugs to you. Take today just for you.

@Rosie Girl:  I am so sorry you are in pain.  It does get so damn tiring.  And it is never too early for wine!  Or you could always have a mimosa?  I like the “get a movie” idea.  Make some popcorn and have an at home date night!  But don’t get any movies with pregnancy or babies in them!!!

@Rosie Girl:I’m so sorry you are feeling down. You wrote such a nice note to me the other day. It meant a lot to me. Thank you. I hope you are feeling better this evening. Have you gone out dancing with your husband yet? I know how hard this can be. I hope you took a bath and had a glass of wine, or two. It’s always noon somewhere… πŸ™‚ Feel better. We will all have our babies one day. It’s just taking us a little longer. In the meantime, read the thread where the pregnant girls are going on about what they miss during pregnancy, and then go do everything they are missing πŸ™‚ I know that sounds evil, but it made me smile as I was reading it the other day.

Thanks girls, you guys can always make me feel better. I had a couple drinks and went to a movie with my girl friend, (and a pregnant girl walked in behind me), but it was nice. And then we had a bunch of frozen yogurt :). I’m still feeling down, but a little better right now, and tomorrows a new day πŸ™‚ Thank you all so much, it really means a lot.

Sacbride10: No, we didn’t go dancing πŸ™ It was my SIL birthday so we went over there for games and cake, which was fun to, but I really wanted to go out tonight and dance my blues away!

So yesterday, I had what I think was EWCM.  Then this morning I woke up to ovary pain!  I wonder if I will ovulate on my own?  When I woke up and felt the pain, I told my husband it was time to “do it” and apparently my morning breath was so terrible that my seduction techniques were ineffective!  We will try later, I guess!

Okay, so I have just joined weddingbee, and I did NOT expect to find such a large group of women with PCOS/or difficulty TTC…I was just browsing trying to get ideas on my wedding reception…what an awesome surprise!

I was diagnosed with PCOS this past January. My Fiance and are not married yet, and we’re not TTC yet.

I will never forget what it was like to see my polycystic ovaries on the ultrasound imaging screen for the first time. After the MD and tech left the room, my eyes flooded with tears. I kept my composure as I talked with/questioned the MD. He gave me a lot of technical reading, a website to visit for support, and a perscription for BC to help with the intercourse pain. He told me if I lost 20 lbs the chance of my cycle returning to normal was good. I got in the car and couldn’t stop crying…I blamed some of the uncontrollable crying on my hormones being out of whack. I read so much information the first few weeks, and even watched some videos of ovarian drilling, which gave me day-mares!!

Right now I’m trying to put all my focus on wedding planning & getting in good shape/losing weight. I really want to go back to school after the wedding is done, but I sometimes wonder, how long should we wait to start trying if I’m not ovulating regularly…or maybe at all. I am having irregular periods, with quite a bit of time in between (47 days at the most). The MD said both ovaries are polycystic, but I don’t feel like I have “missed/skipped” that many periods in my lifetime. How can there be that many undeveloped follicles if I didn’t start having this issue until early 2010?

There are so many questions I have. I made an appointment to get a second opinion from a reportedly awesome GYN in my city. She’s hard to get an appt with and I have had to wait a long time. I guess I’m in no hurry right now.

I have never wanted anything more than to be a great momma someday. I want to give my future children the mom I didn’t have. I hope that it’s still possible, but there’s no way to tell unless we try someday. It’s a daunting thing though. I admire all of you ladies who are so strong through all of your challenges. I have loved reading this blog. I’m going to keep following if that’s okay!

@Honeysuckle: Hi! I know the feeling of seeing your ovaries on the US, and the lady that did mine was like “they look like pearl necklaces”, sure, good way to make you feel better, NOT! I think that you are doing the right thing right now, concentrating on your wedding and getting in shape, and setting goals for school and such. Also it is really good that you are already getting so much info on your condition. There is no way to predit how long it will take you, but when you do start trying, just be prepared that is may take some time. Good luck with your wedding and everything else!

Hi Everyone,

I haven’t posted in a little while, and really wanted to say hi to all of you… thinking of you all.   It was my birthday two weeks ago and my husband surprised me and took me to Vegas… and it was honestly the best thing ever.  Like some of you mentioned above, I kept thinking that we wouldn’t have been able to do half of the stuff we did while there if I had been pregnant… so it really helped.  πŸ™‚ 

Also still spending time snowboarding and keeping busy with having friends over, etc.  Had a girly Oscar party last night, and was so good to just have laughs with everyone… and was happy to see a couple of my heavily pregnant friends show up.. very excited for them even though we’re having troubles.

Currently at the end of my TWW, and while I haven’t started yet, I don’t have much hope for this cycle… feel like I haven’t seen any positive signs of ovulation since last October… (egg white CM, etc.)   Should we be getting that every time if you are indeed ovulating?

Stomach is flip-flopping a bit though, but that’s probably just the nerves!  πŸ˜‰

@RosieGirl – I was so sad to read about the woman at your work.  Really puts it into perspective how lucky we indeed are. 

@CandyNee – what awesome news about your period! – yay!

@heathaah – meet up sounds awesome! Might be a little hard for me to get there (Vancouver,) but love the idea!

@sacbride and Honeysuckle – so glad you joined the thread.

Ok, Metformin friends…what is your dose?  I am in week 3, which means I am now taking three pills a day.  My stomach is constantly bubbling.  I was sick the first few days of both my first week at one pill and my 2nd week at 2 pills.  But this week is much worse.  I can’t imagine starting 4 pills this weekend. 

I am supposed to call my RE when I “can’t take it” anymore.  At what dose did you stop increasing?

@heathaah:  I’m only on 3 pills a day – up from 1 a day that my GYN had me on.  Mine are the Extended Release kind that are 500 MG each.  What dose is yours?

Mine says Metformin HCL 500 MG Tablet.  I have been taking 1.5 in the morning, and 1.5 with dinner.  I decided not to take one pill three times a day because I don’t eat enough during the day usually.

I am wondering if I should go back to just 2 pills.
