Hello Landshark. That is crazy that you ovulate so late, but still get pregnant. And that you didn’t respond to clomid. My left ovary never responds to clomid, just my right. I guess I assume that it doesn’t work because it just is always covered with small cysts. I never have had to do IUI or any other type of meds so I do consider myself lucky.
What a neat story about your second DD. I always think it is funny when the doc tells you to pee on the stick just in case. And I usually want to say in case of what I know that I am not pregnant, but I guess surprises are always there and that is why they do it
Our adoption was wonderful. After our third miscarriage I knew that adoption was going to be the way to become parents. I should mention that DH and I always planned to adopt and had talked in length about it before even trying to conceive so really it was an easy jump to take. I tried two rounds of clomid unsuccessfully and then the day that we were chosen I got :af: but we didn’t care. We so happy! The next month we didn’t use any meds (so I guess this may be considered natural) but according to my RE the clomid stayed in my system and I got pregnant, I find this hard to believe too because we didn’t try to time anything I don’t really remember :dance: we were busy. We didn’t find out untill after we brought our DD home. I honestly think it was meant to be and without our adoption we would not have our second DD. I think I was just so happy and relaxed that my body worked for me.
I agree with you about the metformin. I was on it for over a year and I was on 2000 miligrams. I took 1000 at night before going to bed because it made me sick in the day. Well when I found out I was pregnant I started to take all 2000 thinking it would be good for the baby, but when I talked to my RE around 6 weeks she took me off of it completely so I was happy about that. I guess the research used to say that prevented miscarriages, but the new research says it doesn’t have an affect.
Do you have all the symptoms of PCOS? From what I read online they are horrible. I was really surprised when the doctor said that I have a form of it. I never fit the picture perfectly. With my Endo I didn’t have the pain with my periods. My periods were actually rather light. The pain was really between periods and it would come and go. I only felt it on my right side. It was really just an annoying achy feeling. It was so confusing because I knew that I felt it, but they could never find anything. I started to panic because I knew something was wrong, but they kept telling me I probably had a cyst that burst, but my pain was days at a time. It didn’t make since. I am glad that I had the lap, and endo does come back so I am expecting to start to feel the pain. That is actually how I figured out something was wrong with my last pregnancy (the one I miscarried) the pain came back. I went in to the ER when I was 10 weeks exactly and the baby measured 9 weeks 6 days so it was close.
Why did your doc want to do a lap?
My NT scan was great. I had a SCH (blood clot in the uterus) that they saw at 8 weeks, but they said that it had resolved. The NT scan was easy and you get the results right away. I am seeing a high risk doc in a different town once during my first trimester, 2nd and 3rd. When I had the visit last week he said that I would have monthly ultrasounds starting after my level II. They will check the fluid then and if anything is wrong they will be more frequent. I am hoping the injections of lovenox I am taking daily will help that.
Hmm I guess we are the only ones in this thread I thought there would be more ladies on here?
