Still no AF here, it's now umm I've lost track how late. 12-13 days I think.
Haven't done a hpt since thurs. Test at doctors was negative.
I had a blood test yesterday. I am very nervous to see what it says. Nervous enough I almost feel sick.
I've tried slow release metformin, with no luck. Gets so frustrating. Fertility specialist today said that there isn't really any alternatives to it, and depending on my insulin results I might just have to put up with it. But I'm really not sure how I'm going to do that...
Went to specialist this morning. He has sent me for more blood tests. Of course they are fasting ones. AND the girl I get to do my bloods isn't in til 11 tomorrow Guess who's gonna be really hungry!!! He said he doesn't prescribe clomid now, he uses letrozole. Anyone had experiences with that one? I'm going to have to google.
LifeInShadesOfGrey - that SUCKS - it's better to know one way or another rather than be left in limbo! Hope that your bloods give some results.
I multi on my phone. I hold down until the bar with reply, quote, multi, modify etc comes up, click multi, then you just have to tap on the ones you want to quote mine change colour, then hit quote up the top.
As for metformin/pcos, after my mc, the obgyn asked if I had it (I didn't even know what it was!) He done some general health tests (liver function, vitamin do, thyroid, cholesterol etc) and the 2 hour glucose test.
Everything came back fine, except the 1 hour glucose reading. (6, 11.?, 5) so he said my body has some issues with insulin, and prescribed metformin. Now, I've always had predictable af, (used to come 28 days after she stopped so cycles roughly 5 weeks.) I am overweight though, and seem to have acne issues with certain times in my cycle.
he also told me I shouldn't ttc and to lose weight, he thought I "might have pcos" and don't ovulate regularly, but said the metformin would sort that out if that was my problem (talk about mixed messages) he wasnt very nice and I left in tears.
When I got my bfp with ds. shortly after, I seen my regular gp as I wasn't sure about taking metformin if pregnant.... He checked the results from the tests and flipped out, even called the diabetic specialist who said I didn't need it, so I stopped. I will say though, never in my life had I seen so much ewcm on the tp as I did that month! Lol
Now, after having ds. I had a horrible time trying to breast feed, I just did not have enough milk no mater what I done, I seen 3 different obgyns and a lactation consultant and all asked if I have pcos as it may have explained my problems with bf. It never established, even with herbal suppliments and prescription meds, extra feeds and expressing....
When ds was 6mnths old, I wasnt feeling right so seen my gp, and he discovered hypothyroidism!
So, it seems I have "some" issues that fit pcos... Oh, my gtt with ds. at 28 weeks was perfect!

Lifeinshadesofgrey - I hope she shows up soon or you get a bfp. Not knowing is the worst!
That's no good about your experiences shadowangel - pcos can sometimes be a difficult diagnosis to make/rule out especially if you only have some of the symptoms. Glad you have found a dr who seems to be all over it now tho
I'm afraid I might have pcos or something else wrong...although getting someone to test for it is hard...I am thin, no excess body hair but I did have terrible acne when I was a teen which is why I went on the type of pill that I did. My cycles are still very irregular and I've been getting really light AF since coming off the pill which is strange.
I have just ordered some opk's and DH are going to go the the dr's in a month to get us both checked out. Yay for action!!
Still waiting on AF...expected her over the weekend, but nothing.
AFM - so af is due on Friday! I want to test so bad!!! What does everyone think wait or test and if test when?? My boobs are freaking killing me! I've never had sore boobs before! I walked down the stairs this morning and I had to hold them so they didn't move OUCH! What the hell is that?!? I also have so much cm going on its freakin gross, it wasn't this bad during o week! I had a brilliant weekend away ate cheeses, salami and had a couple glasses of wine and a few blocks of chocolate! LOL!!
