It's Go Time!

I had my last sono for this cycle yesterday, and I have responded really well to the combination of metformin with only 50 mg of chlomid. I have NEVER responded to 50 mg of chlomid before. I am turning into a huge fan of metformin. I have responded so amazingly to it, and as a bonus, have even lost weight in the couple months I've been on it.

Cycle stats as of yesterday morning:
  • 2 follicles at 16 and 16.5mm
  • 2 follicles at 14mm
  • 1 follicle at 13mm
Hubs just gave me the hgc trigger, which is the first one we've ever done on our own. So in 36-48 hours, we'll have at least two good sized follies with mature eggs all ready to go.

I am scared, nervous, excited, and trying so hard to be hopeful. It is hard to overcome all of the negative thoughts and emotions brought on by 2 years of cycles, but I think this is the best chance we have had in a long time thanks to wonderful Dr H.

Keep your fingers crossed and say a few prayers. Maybe do a couple of good luck dances for us, kind of like praying to the rain gods, but to the baby gods instead.

As for me, relax. Breathe. Breathe some more. And read a good book. ;)

Sounds like it is all going perfectly, yayers!! I'm hoping that this will be your positive cycle. P.s. I'm constantly reading your updates, am having trouble commenting, have lost several.

Met is the go to treatment for PCOS. It really does work since PCOS has such an insulin disorder component. I'm on it now just for health. Many women with PCOS end up with diabetes if left untreated.

My cycles are 28-30 days WITH ovulation like clockwork now on Met for the first time EVER. It actually addresses the PROBLEM rather than trying to force a messed up body to ovulate. Honestly, I don't even think clomid is needed with it, but a little bump can't hurt eh?
