Can you ask them to check your insulin resistance first? Before I started working with my RE, I asked my OB for metformin, which she gave me. I took it for months, and I still didn't ovulate. The only thing I got from metformin was hair loss, which is a side effect for some women. Later on, my RE ended up checking my insulin resistance and it was fine. She said metformin wouldn't have done anything for me anyway.

Good luck whatever you decide to do Rachel! Your babies are so cute!
Hey ladies. Bad news for me. I woke up about 15 minutes ago to go to the loo and was spotting bright red blood quite heavily. I've had a few cramps yesterday (thought nothing of it) but nothing now. Praying for some kind of miracle here. So me and DH are of to the hospital. Thought I'd post this now as APA doesn't like to work on my phone, so I don't know how posted I'll be able to keep you all. I'm terrified but trying not to panic in case that makes things worse :'( I'll be back when I can ladies xx
Oh Cookie, I hope everything is ok, please let us know as soon as you feel up to it!
Well I broke my own rule and tested this morning. I said to myself last night that if my temp was still up this morning (and it was the highest it's been with the exception of one day) that I would test. Well BFN on the FRER. So statistically speaking I'm out, it's not impossible that I could get a positive later but...realistically not happening this month.

Hang in there cookie! I hope it's just some early pregnancy spotting! Sticky vibes!
I've been watching this post...good luck to crazy cookie- bleeding can be scary. Hope you have a quick visit at the hospital and everything looks good.
I am actually just waiting for AF to come, due today but no spotting the day or two before as it usually happens. Usually, 5 days before at is due I have a really moody day with light twinges and cramps. Got that, so I think I should still be expecting AF today... But of course, doesn't mean I can't still be hoping!
Also, It'd be sweet if it happened, because my one year of ttc appointment is at the end of the month!

Hoping and praying for baby#2 and/or future adoption :-)

Not liking my temp this morning.
Hey ladies. Thank you for all the , they worked!!!! Once I got there they did a transvaginal ultrasound but couldn't see anything, they said its probably too early but my uterus is showing signs of pregnancy. I had another hcg test, my level was 415!!! So it had more than doubled since Friday I need to go back to the doctors on Wednesday for more blood to be drawn and to test hcg again and maybe Friday, depending on what my doc says. So thank you ladies, baby is still sticking!!!
Well I just called and scheduled a pre-conception appointment with my doctor for thus Thursday. Pretty sure with my past history he will be be open to me doing clomid again.
You obviously wouldn't be able to see it now, but I had a very large temp spike on CD 17 which was then followed by a more normal LP temp rise. I've been debating whether to keep or toss that temp (as a scientist ignoring any data is really painful)...but with it out, it makes my cycle look "better".
It would put me at 14 DPO rather than 16 and that is more in line with what I would anticipate. While it doesn't really mean good things for a BFP as my last BD before the O would be -4 days, it's still theoretically possible (FF was kind enough to show me lots of nice pregnancy charts to confirm it's possible).
What do you think--keep or toss that temp?
Rachel ...boo on today's temp ! Praying for a good appt Thurs!! I really hope you're able to get started on a fresh cycle and take some steps forward towards a bfp
Natalie, I'd toss it for sure...looks like you may have been fighting off a virus or something that skewed your temp a bit. Since it has no bearing on your fertility overall I think it'd be good to discard it
Thanks Kelly, I think so too!
