I'll try to keep this somewhat short.
PCOS diagnosis at 19. Took 10 months to get pregnant with my daughter -- nothing needed, but I was 23. She's 3 1/2 now.
Been trying for a second baby for 2 years. 40+ day cycle until I was given metformin 1000 MG. That made it drop to 32ish days. Folic acid of course and then Vit. D. I got pregnant August 2013 for a little over a week. Miscarriage out of no where and I was a wreck.
OBGYN gave me Clomid. Lowest dose. CD 3-7, I believe. Unmonitored. Cut my cycle length, but no pregnancy. Horrible mood swings though.
Go to a fertility specialist. I hated him so much. He made me feel like a horrible person and I was so stressed at the office I got a nose bleed.
To the better part --
I went to a second fertility specialist. Much better! Did an HSG -- nothing blocked, or oddly shaped. I was on CD 9, but she gave me femara anyway. 2.5 for 5 days. She checked my eggs via ultrasound -- 13.5 egg on the left, 19 egg on the right. Gave me a trigger shot I took the next day. We had sex that day and two days afterward. Used preseed.... and it worked. One time!
I thought I was out a 100 times. I told my husband and those that have been supporting me I wasn't pregnant. So here's the details...
DPO 1-7: Nothing
DPO 8 and 10: Harder time breathing at kickboxing
DPO 8 on: STARVING. Can't stop eating. Eating things I don't usually -- like plain bread with butter and salty chips.
DPO 10 on: Heartburn!
DPO 10&12: BFNs, but I notice I have to pee in the morning way more than usual
DPO 13, 14, and 15: AF type cramps, or worse.
DPO 15: BFP! Faint line on a cheap Dollar General test. After that BFP, hundreds of symptoms kicked-in. Breasts hurt. Smells. Lots of trips to the bathroom. Stuff nose. Can't brush my teeth in the morning without gagging (something I had with my daughter, but not the miscarriage)
I'm terrified that I might miscarry again, especially with all the cramping I've had, but things are good so far. If I don't have cramps, I have back pain.
I had a draw on DPO 16 and the HCG was 236. Progesterone was over 20. I find out in about 15 minutes how the second draw went, but I wanted to post this in good faith that there's good news.
Keep trying, ladies.
