    Default The Journey to starting our family......

    Well where do I begin??! I should have started this a year ago!! Never imagined it would take this long to conceive! Boy was i wrong! Let me begin...I'm 25 years old. My DH Romie is 27 years old. We have been married 3 years this April! What a fast 3 years it has been! We had always planned to start a family when I turned 25. We wanted to PG by then. So last year in 1/03 we started TTC#1. We didn't stress over anything at the time. Just wasted alot of money those darn PG tests!!! So we spent the next 6 months TTC#1 naturally. In June I decided to go have a check up to make sure everything was OK. I had lots of tests done. Everything came back "normal". I had very long cycles! The shortest being 40 days up to 70+. But the DR said everything was normal. Just told me to keep trying! There was nothing she could do. She reffered me to a OB/GYN. In Oct. I went to see the OB/GYN. She immediately said she couldn't help me! I had a problem! She reffered me to a Fertility Specialist in another town. SO Iproceeded to see him. Heck what else could I do?! He was a God sent! As soon as he looked at my lab work he new what the problem was.....PCOS!! I couldn't believe it! I was in shock! He explained what PCOS is. I was not OVULATING! And for who knows how long! He sent me in for fasting test. Later to find out it was very high! I prescribed Metformin. 1500mg a day. Also given Provera every cycle. On day 35 if no AF then take a PG test and if BFN then start Provera again! I was told that if I lost about 20 pounds that would help too! I did have biopsy done down there because if you don't have AF for a long time it can give you cancer! That was NEGATIVE!! Thank god! I have not had any side affects from Metformin, besides diarreah the first week.

    My DR wanted me to take Metformin for about 5 months and see if it's helping any. So far it's been 4 and hasn't done anything! It almost makes me not to want to take it anymore! I have to take 3 times a day and it's hard for me to remember! But if I saw or felt results it would help! So in March I'm supposed to call DR and he will give me Clomid.

    Well enough for today! I will continue soon......

    Well not much to report on today. Just trying to eat healthier. Or should I say cut some carbs! Not really counting them! Just when I think "oh chips..." "no, how about some cheese". If I count them then I feel really deprived! I also bought some low carb bread. And lots of meat. I have George Forman grill it's the best!!
    I'm really tired tonight I didn't have much sleep last night. I'm off the next couple of days and I should get some rest. But I will probably go to work anyways! Need the money!! Well I'm going to bed!
    Enough for today......

    Meds for today:
    1000mg of Metformin (oops i forgot one today!)
    10mg Provera

    Well i've had a few busy days so I haven't had time to write! So DH and I made a very big decision yesterday. We decided not to buy the house we were going to buy! We just weren't comfortable! So we are staying in our apt. We like it here and it's CHEAP!!! So with that we've decided to do some redecorating. Our apt now is kind of dull. So we are getting alot of new stuff! After all we had money saved up for a down payment!! So this will be fun! We are going to make it more comfortable in our home. I got a very good bargain today! At JC Penny! I got 1 shirt, 3 pairs of dress pants, and 4 skirts for $14.99!!!!! Awesome deal! They were all on sale for $1.77 a piece!!! Yeah! Some are a size smaller than I wear now. So I have to work for them!! I did make an effort to workout today. But when I got there I forgot the secret code and couldn't get in! So I've set a schedule for myself! Everyday M-F I'm going to work out at 9:00AM!! The earliest i work is 1:00. So it will fit my schedule. I'm also so bribing myself! I want to have my nails done again with artificials and if I work out I will get them done! Well I better get back to cleaning!

    Enough for today....

    Meds:
    1500 mg Metformin
    10 mg Provera
    1 Centrum vitamin

    Well it's been a few days since I've been writing here. Not feeling well today. Very nauseus. I hate that feeling. Then earlier today i had a little spotting. Not much. Just when I wiped. So I though for sure AF was on her way! Well now there's nothing! So I've been in this mood where life isn't fair! All I ask for is a baby! Just 1!!! Why do I have to be the one with PCOS?? I've always done everything the right way! We planned to have children, wanted to make sure we could afford them, have a roof over their head, etc. And what do I get? INFERTILITY!!! So I'm going to do some more research on PCOS! I have been very emotional today! I've cried several times! Over nothing some! Well I'm off for now!

    Well I think AF is coming! Pretty sure! So I'll be calling DR tomorrow about Clomid! No sense in dragging this out any longer! The bright side this cycle was only 48days!! WOW! That's short for me! Well i finished most of spring cleaning today! It feels so nice! And looks better too! I'm so excited I ordered TOny Little's Freestyle Elite Gazelle today! It should be in 2 weeks!! Didn't have much for an appetite today! All I ate was a porkchop and some green beans! I don't know what was wrong! Usually when AF comes I want to eat everything in sight! Nothing sounded good or even looked good! Weird!

She's calling in the script tomorrow for Clomid for me! So I'll be starting that this week! Looking forward to it! I hope it helps me Ovulate! I also started temping. Just to see if I O. I didn't sleep well lastnight. Woke up sweating once! YUCK! I even sleep with a fan. We are going out shopping tomorrow for a new couch!! We need one bad!! I'm so glad to have my house back in order!

    Well yesterday was a very busy day for me! I woke at 6AM to temp and decided to stay up. Cleaned my house! Top to Botttom! Feels good! Took my car in to get the windows fixed! $200 they are fixed! OUCH! Execised yesterday!!! YEAH!!! Well we got our new couch and loveseat!! They are pretty! Got my hair cut yesterday. I also started Clomid, 100mg. I also talked to the nurse too. She told me that in 3 months if I'm still having to take Provera because of no O then call and they will up dose. In 6 months if not PG then we look into other options!

    Well we've had a major blizzard the last 2 days now! Today everything in this town was closed!! Except Walmart! And I work in the salon in Walmart!! We were only open part of the day! Only 2 of us had 4-wheel drive so we were the only ones there! Go figure!
    I finished my last dose of Clomid today! So...you know what that means!! I've been so busy preparing for my State Licensing Exam next week! I will be out of town this weekend for my niece's Baptism. So I thought I better study now!
    I've been SUPER tired lately! And still loss of appetite! I'm just praying to GOD that I Ovulate this cycle!! Still temping. Well i just had to vent a little.
