I haven't been on The Bump since my son was born. He will be 2 in Sept. I decided to come back on in hopes of being able to connect with others who understand what this is like.
I just turned 36. I have PCOS. I had a mmc and a possible cornual ectopic prior to conceiving my son. (my dr now thinks it was NOT a cornual because she was able to remove the pregnancy via D&C) The only RX I used at the time was 1000mg Metformin. Every single time I got pregnant it was total luck. I did not chart/temp. Just happened.
I gained 65lbs during my pregnancy which really kicked my PCOS into high gear. It has been BEYOND difficult losing the weight. In fact, I'm still 30lbs overweight. I have started to lose since I cut back on the carbs. Since doing that I have been having periods roughly every 6 weeks or so.
I had an abnormal pap in Feb and needed a LEEP to remove the pre-cancerous cervical cells. My dr cleared me to start ttc in April. So far we have been unsuccessful. I am still on Metformin.
All of my bloodwork has come back normal. My reserves are high (in fact, very high, which is normal for PCOS). My HSG was normal.
So the next step: clomid. If I don't get a period next week I will start Provera followed by clomid round 1.
This is all happening at a time where I feel EVERYONE I know is pregnant. I am so jealous. I have started to feel like it is never going to happen. I hate that I even think about feeling bad for myself when I have a gorgeous, happy son who is madly in love with me. Why can't I just enjoy what I have without wondering what's next?
Thanks for listening to my vent. I hope I can connect with some of you who have been through these ups and downs. I will also have a ton of questions about Clomid, charting, etc.
I wish all of you luck in your journey...
