I'm just scared of getting shut down since we haven't been trying very long but knowing my past history I don't want to wait.
    Rach its worth a try. Metformin always did the trick for me. I got pregnant both times I was on it. Maybe just try it instead of the clomid and see if that helps first? If thats not something you want to do then just ask for the clomid.

    I think I keep gearing up to ovulate and then don't. I get the pains and everything. I have been reading and I really think the metformin would be helpful. I did have a dip then somewhat of a rise this morning so I might see if that goes somewhere before I call.

    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.

    I have never even actually been tested for PCOS, just told that I have it. I have text book symptoms (overweight, excessive hair, acne, irregular cycles). I think I need to go be seen and talk about it. I tried to talk to my OB about it when I was there a few weeks back ago for my pap but since that wasn't what I was there for he didn't really talk about it with me much.

    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.

    I'm sorry! It looks like we both broke our rules, and we both don't feel good about it. Next month (I'm still clinging to a little bit of hope) I'm not testing until AF is at least a week late no matter how hard it is. I hope that we both bend the statistics and still get our BFP. We're not out til AF comes. Good luck!

    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!

    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!!!

    I already have one booked for the 5th of April and I'll be 6w 2d so I don't think they want to do something before that because they might not see anything again I think

    Good luck with your appointment, praying it goes well for you

    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
