    I'm going to call Dr M this morning. This Metformin business has to stop.
    I took the Metformin in the evening, held it down without vomiting, went to sleep at 11pm, at 1am my DS called out for me. I sat up and thought "oh no, I'm in trouble". I tried to walk to his bedroom but staggered uncontrollably from wall to wall holding onto anything I could to stay upright. I looked like a drunk person in a movie and felt like I'd been unwittingly drugged. My head was a mess. I was worried I was going to lose consciousness while asleep. I staggered to the kitchen and slowly sipped juice and ate a plum. When I woke 2 hrs I felt a good bit better, and now I feel normal, but it was flipping scary, esp on my own.
    I can't be on a plane or in a foreign country feeling fully drugged and out of control of my body.

    I am very saddened by your loss. I have no words. Just heartbreaking.

    Absolutely. To be honest I don't even know how you are managing to put one foot in front of the other at the moment hon, but then again I suppose you have to for your other baby.


    It is very hard to find a silver lining at times of distress such as this. I thought a lot about you, your DH and your two beautiful babies last night. All I can come up with this is that I am extremely grateful that your little one had his/her twin with them when they passed, and they were not (and still are not) alone.


    Your little bubba never knew pain, or loneliness, or hunger, or cruelty. All he/she ever knew was the surrounding love of his/her Momma, Daddy and beautiful little brother or sister.


    I am sending the biggest hugs and love your way today hon. Please take care of yourself and your precious little babies. I am so sorry that one of your little ones was called home.

    Beautiful words @Blossom74. I imagine most of us feel asleep with @faithandhopellove in our thoughts and woke thinking of her and dh too. It's just so incredibly sad.

    Oh @Tahli, that is terrible, and from an outsider's perspective I really do think this needs to be addressed too. I know there must be a purpose to this Metformin, but at the same time I think in order to grow a healthy baby it really is a case of 'Healthy Mum, healthy bub." And hon, you don't sound well.

    Granted, I've never taken this drug, and I do apologise - I don't even know what it's for! But this doesn't sound normal to me - it sounds almost toxic. DEFINITELY give your FS a call today because I think you've suffered enough, and as you said, you need your wits about you for the next few days.

    Big hugs hon

    Hello @ Precious40, how are you doing hon? I see you pop in from time to time and you always make time for us with your thoughtful comments, but we don't really know what you're up to!

    Am I right in thinking you have some time off coming up soon? And how are you feeling after everything you've been through? It does take time to come to terms with things (God knows I still fall to pieces at regular intervals.) Just wanted to say 'hi' and let you know I'm thinking of you

    @Tahli you poor thing, get dr m on the phone this is ridiculous. What's the metformin for? I'd be stopping it today, that seriously can't be helping anything.

    Well I'm currently experiencing the harbour bridge traffic delays, has already taken me nearly 2 hours and I'm not actually on it yet!! And I'm going against the traffic..hi five to the iPhone for providing something to do..

    AFM, I've just checked my list and apparently today is the day Baby Cakes is meant to attach to my lining. Go Baby Cakes, go!

    I am holding up OK at the moment. I think it's a combination of (A) It being way too early still to detect anything and (B) At this very moment there is still a chance I could be/get pregnant. There is still hope!

    I am scared as to what the next step is. I HOPE and pray it is to welcome a little baby of my very own into the world. But I don't know what to do if that doesn't happen. I feel like time is running out, opportunities are running out, and the money has definitely run out. How do I deal with that?

    What I wouldn't give for one single donor egg. I feel in my heart that my body WANTS to be pregnant. I can feel it in my bones. But I just keep giving it these bl00dy dud eggs and it can't do anything with them. Why can't I know any younger, fertile women who can help me?

    Life is bl00dy unfair sometimes. I'm sorry @faithandhopellove, I know my problems pale into comparison with what you're facing at the moment. Just having a little pity party today

    Holy moly, that's quite a commute! Do you do that trip often or is it just an occasional thing. Yes, thank the powers that be for technology. We, as IVF patients, would have a lot of empty hours with no entertainment if it weren't for our phones and laptops

    jeez that's bad traffic today @tuxcat. did something happen to cause it? could you go victoria road instead? I come back that way so I don't pay the toll to come into the cbd
    @Blossom74, I have a good feeling about this cycle. I think Baby Cakes is waiting for you to bring her home
    @Tahli, I'm glad you're speaking with your doctor. the response your body is having to the meds doesn't sound right - maybe you're having an allergic reaction to the medication?
