On the road again......

* If you are close friends or family we ask that you please not share this information as we have decided to wait to see how things go before we tell anyone we are trying or hopefully that we are expecting.


It's official. We are TRYING again. I have been working with a dietician to try to get some weight off and that has been going pretty well as of late. So, hubby and I decided it was time to get back on that horse and start trying again. I can't say I'm not completely nervous since our last two attempts have not ended so well but I just know that we are meant to be parents and am not ready to give up trying.

I met with my doctor on Friday and am comfortable with the plan we have in place. I took by last BCP on Sep 5th and started on my first month of Metformin Sept 24th. We are going to try the Metformin (which I was on for three months the first time we got pregnant) for 3-4 months. During that time I will be doing 3 day and 21 day progesterone testing to see if I am ovulating. Since I have PCOS and Hypothyroid disease it is not known whether I ovulate when not on birth control as I can go anywhere from 3 to 6 months without a visit from you know who. Then if we aren't pregnant after those 3-4 months she will be starting us on Clomid. I hope, hope, hope the Metformin works. It's been 5 years since we first started trying and I am sooooo ready to me a mommy.

On a side note, look how adorable my nephew is :)
