Elly - Ah, I now see where your mom was coming from and, I guess it's a valid point for thought but yeah, I think I'd probably make the same decision as you guys. All the best with your OHSS, hope it gives you some peace nice and soon so your can get around to enjoying your MS.....just kidding, just kidding!....get around to enjoying being pregnant What "they" say about not getting hungry and about grazing throughout the day is not an old-wives-tale....it does actually work
Congratulations again! xo

I thought I would introduce myself here. I was diagnosed with PCOS during the week at my first appointment with a gyno. His put me on 1000mg of Metformin a day and I have a script for Clomid as well. The Metformin has given me some horrible symptoms, I am waiting patiently for them to end. My AF is due this week, if I doesn't come I have a script for Provera too.
I'm a very excited about being a step closer to conceiving, but its a bit scary too!

Pilbara- I use to live in teh pilbara for the last few years until earlier this year, so i definately know the boozy culture you are referring to. I had a friend who had the ssame probably and she used a combo of the health kick and the sneeky pretend drink Ladydee mentioned. She would 'only be having a couple' due to the health kick, and would drink 'vodka' and lemonade. She would bring this tiny bottle of vodka that had water in it and make herslef her own drinks- or her dh would. Worked well. Because the bottle was so tiny no one tried to scab any off her
Welcome blackduck. I hear metformin gives horrible gastrointestinal symptoms for the first few weeks. I hope you get through it and see some results
AFM- im still in the TWW. Bloods on Wednesday. Have loads of cramping the last week, so I am actually wondering if I might get my period on my own?? That would be a first! Definately don't feel pregnant and am sure its going to be a BFN for me, but I shall wait and see.

Thanks ladies I'm not a big drinker anyway, but its basically expected that you'll have a few drinks when you go out. I managed well last night, I had a bottle of Matso's Ginger Beer (its only 3.5% anyway) and drank the tiniest sips, then my wonderful fiancee bought a second one to put in front of me, so i always had a full one when it was next round. Then we went back to a friends place and i had Vodka and Lemonade - minus the vodka. Just have to keep up the act I suppose.
1xbabyplease: Good luck....you never know what those blood results will show.
BlackDuck: Welcome and Good luck! Lets hope AF arrives so you can start your cycle!

Pilbara - being a nurse, maybe you can help me. My ohss is making me huge, as in 4 and a half months pregnant huge, and I don't want anyone to know about ttc until my 12 week scan. Any ailments I can claim I have besides ohss which I could use as an excuse for looking like this?
25-09-2011 20:22 #746
Im a surgical nurse so dont know too much about ohss. I guess you could just claim that youre really bloated... That you hadnt been drinking enough water and got really blocked up and distended? And wear lose clothing.
Otherwise just say its the effect of a medication youre on at the moment but its makes you feel really ugly and you would rather not talk about it?
Thats all i can think if...sorry!
25-09-2011 20:32 #747
That should do The effect of a medication that is
I haven't seen any off my friends since I popped out but they aren't blind
25-09-2011 20:52 #748
Best of luck! Once you get to the 12 week mark and they find out the truth, they will be so excited for you that they'll have forgotten about the lame excuses!

Wow! I go AWOL for a week or so, and come back to lots of BFP's!! yay!!
a HUGE congratulations to Miggins, Ellymoe and Littlejoeyg!!
Wonderful news ladies, wishing you all the best wishes in the world for safe pregnancies, and healthy bubs!!
Mylittlefamily - I have been on metformin for four months, and Clomid for two months... I DID experience weight loss as a result of the metformin, but not a huge amount... Mind you, (TMI warning!) I have had ridiculous side effects with not being able to keep ANY food from going VERY quickly south, so that is probably a helper with the weight loss!
blackduck - Welcome!! Hope your stay with us is short and sweet and you get your BFP soon! Good luck with the medication, there are lots of people who DO experience the side effects (me being one of them!) but the degree they will suffer from them is individually based and will vary person to person... I hope you don't suffer from any!!
AFM... I am CD15 with no signs of O so far... Second month clomid, first month on double dosage. Hating it this month, and having ridiculous side effects again. Very emotional this month, and really hoping I do O this time.... Just not looking forward (as none of us are) to having to start all over again next month, yet again.
I'm very lucky in that I have two very special friends who have been through TTC battles of their own, but also have two very inconsiderate friends who don't seem to care what hubby and I are going through, but feel that their insignificant problems need my undivided attention.
Have had a long chat with hubby, and have decided I need to sit down and chat with the inconsiderate friends, and tell them I need some space. All they are doing is upsetting me, which can't be good for me at the moment.
REALLY struggling with the whole scheduled BD'ing this month.... Nothing really romantic about it is there??
Anywho, hope all you other ladies are having positive months, and that the precedent set by Ellymoe, Miggins and Littlejoeyg will rub off on everyone! hehe
Lots of to all!!

Bluefiretail- I also had bad side effects on Clomid- was REALLY emotional for the days I was on the tablets plus a few afterwards! Good luck talking to your inconsiderate friends. I hope they are able to understand what you are going through.
AFM- I am down in the dumps today. I caved and took a HPT this morning and it was negative (12DPO) I know its only my first IUI cycle, but after the failed clomid cycles, it is starting to get me down. I also had the joy of attending yet another baby shower yesterday which hasn't helped. Three of my friends all had their bumps on display and then there is the nursery viewing and the constant baby talk. I feel like I only have two more shots at this with IUI, then they say its unlikely to happen. I don't think I can do IVF because I am very allergic to anaesethic and the last time I had it I went into cardiac arrest. Sorry about the vent, I know may of you ladies have been through a lot worse.
