    Thanks everyone for welcoming me to the group.

    MissA- sounds like we had a very similar experience hey? Here's to hoping the next one for both of us is much more positive!

    Phee- that's great acupuncture is helping you for those disappointing times. I didn't feel any different mentally from it all, was purely only doing it in hopes it would help the PCOS and regulate my cycle. I do yoga and other forms of stress release, so manage to stay pretty positive when AF arrives or get a BFN. Clearly there's always going to be some sadness, but just try to turn that around quickly and focus on next cycle!

    Miracle4me- I have heard of Metformin, and OB briefly touched on it, but she said to just try the clomid first for a few cycles and see how we go. If no luck with just that, I will def ask her more about it, as it sounds like it would be good for me! Is it something you take constantly? Or only certain parts of the cycle like clomid?

    Phee83 - I know! I'm not normally that emotional during my cycle, so I'm really dreading watching 'The Biggest Loser' tonight, I might tape it and watch it when I'm feeling stable! Luckily DH is awesome, just laughs, hugs me and is really reassuring.

    amiricle4me - it might be worth it. I've got my dad visiting for a few days so will test when he leaves...

    I haven't tried acupuncture but was thinking about it if this cycle doesn't work. There is a place in the city that specialises in fertility so will give it a go.

    What are you guys all doing about stuff like eating soft cheeses and having a glass of wine? I've been sort of laying off it mostly 'just in case'...

    Just had a massive blow up at the DH about absolutely nothing. He was very good and mostly ignored/ didn't engage. Now I'm miserable in bed. I'm very tired but would live to blame this in clomid. Anyone else get really angry at the unfair hand we have been dealt? 👊

    Hi Mrs Marc's,
    I really feel for you and send you a huge hug.. Xxx

    I spent the majority of last year in a black hole of grief about all this. It was the year me and DH found out we had less than 10% chance of conceiving naturally and also the same year that all my friends got pregnant, inc my boss and the girl who sits next to me at work.. It was killing me. I snapped at everyone. I ran up huge bills on my phone with constant googling to try and educate myself and I pretty much stopped seeing my friends.. I also was really rude to a close and lovely friend who told me she got pregnant on the first go ( she has severe PCOS ).. Luckily she understands and forgave me.
    I guess what I'm trying to say is that yeah, we all get angry and depressed and tired of it and frustrated.. It's a horrible deal we have. It's really important though to not let it take over your life. I know its hard to say but I've dug myself out of the black hole to save my sanity. We are actually having a 6mth break to get married as I'm emotionally exhausted from taking drugs, assessing everything in my body and the constant disappointment.. It's actually nice to have the 'baby break' as I'm now calling it. Once AF comes this week I'm not trying again till July and its like freedom! Even if your break is for one night with the girls or one month make sure you have them.. Important to remember who you were before all this stress..we're also here so rant away!

    Miss Smiley.. Metformin is something i take every day. I had a blood test which showed I was insulin resistant ( very common if you have PCOS ) and so the metformin helps your body break down sugar.. Stops sugar cravings a bit and I lost a bit of weight too..
    It's meant have a side effect of balancing out the female hormones and to aiding Clomid..

    I feel the same way hun, my two best friends are pregnant and get to share that together, my boss is also pregnant and feels like I'm the only one she can tell so I have her constantly gushing how excited she is and all I want to do is scream! I haven't told any of my friends what's going on, which isn't easy, but I figure easier then the constant it'll happen when it happens stuff.

    We're always here though lovely and it's really great to talk to people in the same situation, although I wish none of us had to go through this xxx

    Hi Mrs Mac's - yeah I was feeling a lot like that last year as well, my 39 year old sister fell pregnant super easily and here I was 30 and trying and not getting anywhere! We haven't told anyone we were trying and that makes it that bit harder because we are missing out on that support. Then I was watching a program about a set of a parents who we're carrying a child with Downs Syndrome. She was asked how she was feeling about the impending arrival and she said something like, "at first I was thinking why me all the time. And then I thought why not me? What makes me better than any of the other people that go through the same situation?" And that really made me consider my attitude to the whole situation. It does suck, a lot. I completely agree with amiracle4me, try not to let it take over everything, find some joy somewhere...

    Ok all, now I have another question.... I'm 2 days overdue so I did a test.

    I've got a very faint positive.... How dark does it have to be? Never having done a test before I'm not down with how it all works!

    For a HPT as long as there is 2 lines (any strength) it's a positive
    For a OPK the test line needs to be darker than the control line to be positive.
    Did you just get a positive HPT?? Post a pic if you like!!
