Hey ladies! Sorry I'm just now checking in... It's been a BUSY day! LOL

First. of course, the Dr. appt. I had the u/s. First thing Dr. said was "every thing looks absolutely perfect" and then he says, "It's classic PCOS". LOL Okay.... My ovaries are the normal size, not enlarged. Um, says it does look like I did Ovulate already, but who knows how far back... Um, My endo liniing is 7.9mm (I'm about to google that and see what that means!) Um.... Still pushing me to go on Metformin and I'm still saying no... Um..... It was actually a pretty good Dr. visit. I'm pleased. So was Dh. :-) I did get b/w for progesterone and should get that tomorrow. So far, that's it. Says to work on eating healthy and exercising :oops: , like always... LOL :-) So, that's what we're gonna do!

After the Dr. appt. we went and had lunch with my mom... Then I dropped dh off at home and off I went to meet up wtih my eldest bro (who lives in Florida) and we went to the bookstore and then to look at apartments as they are moving here within the next three months they hope. I really have mixed emotions about that... Then I went grocery shopping and yeah. Then I just got home. I'm going to nanny tonight so got homework to do but first things first, gotta research that endo lining thing... LOL I'm SO curious! :-)

Sorry Krissy I missed your call at home, obiously I was not here and my cell is DEAD!!!!! It's charging so I may chat tonight if you like! ;-) After the boys are in bed asleep...

I know that with the lining that they are looking for the layers - did they say that part was good? I dunno about the lining # though, sorry I can't be of more help on that one. Can I ask - why the resistance to the Met? i've heard really great things happening once met comes into the picture...although it does cause some crappy s/e. But all in all I'm glad you had a good appt!! :jump:

Hope you have a good day! I'm off for lunch - WOOO HOOO :jump: :jump: :jump: :jump: :jump: :jump:

Megs- I am glad to hear that your appt went well. "Classic pcos", does that mean that he saw more cysts, or was that comment from looking at your charts? The lining number sounds good. Most doctors like to see at least 6mm around ovulation, so a 7.9 sounds great. Mine were 6mm, 6.6mm, and the last cycle was a 9.4 (the beautiful one). So are you going to go back on the "quack doc" supplements to get a more normal cycle while ttc?
Marcelle- I am hoping that just the spotting continues. I really hope this is your month.
Harriet- I must check out your chart since everyone is talking about it.
Missy- Sweet new ride! I am totally jealous. Glad to hear that everything checked out well at your u/s.
Krissy- Glad things are going well with you. I love the belly shots, you are so good about taking them weekly!!

I have been doing a lot of soul searching lately. I don't think I am officially ready to move right to adoption. We will continue to save for it, but I can't start the process until this whole ttc is out of my system, and it is definitely not yet. I have my appt with the RE on Mar. 13, and I really want to hear what he has to say. I am hoping that he will think that daily injectables will do the trick, and not just suggest IVF. All of the research I have done has shown that with severe endo doctors will do 3 months of Clomid and IUI, then move on to IVF. I don't know what to think anymore, I just wish it would happen!! Two weeks ago I didn't want to do injectables, now today I will do whatever it takes. Ughh!!!Hormones!!!
Also, I think I have developed another cyst from the Clomid again. I am super achy and and bloated on both my ovaries. Yuck.

AF started early this morning. Only seeing Gyn on Monday afternoon, can't fit me in today. :( I didn't want to wait the whole weekend, but what can I do right???? Monday will be CD4, he said I needed to see him before CD5. So I guess it's cutting it a bit fine.... but luckily if he prescribes any meds I can still get to a pharmacy in time.... :roll:

Craig didn't know WTH to do with me this morning. Usually when AF arrives I go crazy and throw a fit. Scream or cry.... Today I was dancing around the room, so very happy to see her..... He was totally amazed...

Missy that is one gorgeous car. me green with envy!!!

Megs, Met isn't all that bad you know. It can also aid with weight loss so I've heard. Glad all looks good though. KUP on that prog test.

Annie, ((Hugs)) you are allowed to change your mind and look at other options. I know when AF usually starts I just chuck in the towel and give up, then a couple days later once the hormones subside I start looking for other options. You just keep strong. I'm sure you will do what is meant to be done.

Krissy, yes I was one day late..... :mrgreen: Haven't had that in a while. all this talk about taco bell. YUMMY... pity we don't have one here in S.A

Mel, hope you join us today......

Harriet, enjoy your time with DH.

Hello everyone else. 8)

Anyway, I'm going to be doing some more work today. So I'll only be back later... much later.... x x x x

Hi all just thought I'd check in since I am on a smokin hott roll 8) LOL!!

We filed our tax returns and are THRILLED to find out we are getting back enough to not only take a vacation to Hawaii but also pay a bit down on our credit cards! WOOO HOOO!! :o We weren't expecting that but we'll take it LOL!

Oh and I too have seen Met help in weight loss, mostly because you are automatically put on a low carb diet - low bread, sugar and carb intake in general. I know people that have dropped 20 lbs in two months just with that alone - Brandy from SOP did that from November till January! She just got her BFP too.....

Anyhow I feel as though I am ranting so I am off to catch some ZZZ's - until tomorrow ladies!

A bit of personals this late evening/ early morning to start:

Missy! Like I said before, the car is great! Totally you! How are you feeling? I know you were pukey this morning? Anything better? Worse? When do you find out if for sure you are gonna get an u/s on the 25th or if not, when? That’s awesome about your taxes!! Wahoo for some extra dinero!!!

Megs! It was nice to have the small chat that we did, and I will try calling you tomorrow. It drives me nuts as I told you that your doc is so stuck on the PCOS road. I wish he would do more tests or re-do tests to see if anything has changed, hormone wise or otherwise. Like you have told me and like I have read, PCOS seems so dependent on so much it almost doesn’t seem like you can truly have it unless you have a myriad of corresponding symptoms which you don’t, or at least not all the time. I am glad you were pleased with your visit though. I hope your friend or SIL (was it?) can find the name of the doctor she went to for you for that second opinion!

Annie! I knew you couldn’t stay away! We miss you so and I am glad you have realized that TTC isn’t completely out of your system. There is nothing that I wish more for you than to get one healthy bean so that you can experience the miracle of life, if not just once and then move on to your adoption journey! I know it is sooooo hard, but ya gotta trust in Him and he will give you the desires of your heart… No one knows when but His timing IS perfect! How is Joel with the decision to continue the TTC journey? He seems like such a sweety and like he’d back you up on anything you wanted to do. I hope this is the case!

Marcelle! Aww hon, I am glad to see you are in a more chipper mood even though the biotch showed her nasty red face. Poor Craig, he must think you’ve gone off your rocker. LOL If this TTC stuff isn’t the death of us women it will be the death of our husbands. Haha! I can’t wait to hear what is to follow after your appointment on Monday! Poo, though they couldn’t get you in today. That would have been so much better!
Oh and Marcelle, I had to LOL when you said you are getting 0.57 back… WTF is that?!?!? It isn’t barely worth the stamp they are gonna pay to mail it. LOL

Mel! How are you doing?!?!?!? How’s Meegan!!!???

Ok so I had this whole mini vent session, ok ok ok… BIG vent session all thought out about stupid evolution shows on TV that are brain washing our children, another vent about my grandfather and his attitude issues, another vent about this spasm I seem to have in my eyelid, another vent about the fact that my husband doesn’t know how to clean up after himself, a vent about how random women who I only see once a month seem to think they are my best friends and want to know EVERYTHING about my pregnancy when they see me and then I don’t hear from them until the next month where they do it all over again and yet another vent about how I feel like a friggin whale… but now that I have done my personals, I feel oddly calmed. Hmmm . . . Maybe I just needed to take my mind off my aggressions to allow them to subside. Aww well… at least it spares you all the eyesore of reading my insanity! :shock: Haha! So, Arty should be home soon. I should go to bed. I don’t wanna but I think I will. Hmmm . . . Decisions decisions… anyone on? :mrgreen:

Hello guys. Sorry about the witch Marcelle but if you go to the docs on monday you will still be in time for CD 5. What do you think he will suggest? I love the pic of Mck she looks like she is having fun he he.
Harriet when are you going ot update your temp miss?
Krissy are your belly pics on piczo? I will go and have a mooch. Hope you are feeling better and you can vent as much as you like your a pregnant hormonal women it's your right lol.
Annie sounds like your ttc journey isn't over. You can't turn your back on it untill you have explored all the avenues available to you. I can't imagine the heart ache you have been going through but you sound like you have a plan and that always helps. I hope the doc suggests injectables you will have to take the info you have researched when you go to the appointment in case he doesn't.
Missy I love the new car very snazzy and you need all the space you can get with a new baby there is no longer such a thing as travelling light lol. We are going away this weekend for a week and I think were gonna have to go in two cars lol. Hope the ms doesnt get too bad.
Megs glad that everrything looked good at the docs. Have you got a plan re exercise and diet etc? I went training again last night it was hard but I need to do more than one lot of exercise a week or I will never shift my weight but its a bit difficult with a lo. Think I will go for long walks with her.
Mel not long to go now have you been getting many BH? I can't wait to see little Meegan.
Lani Hope you are well and Alex is back to full fitness.

As for me I'm well Isobel slept through last night woo hoo from 11.30 till 8.30. Going shopping this afternoon to get stuff for our hols so might not get on again so have a fab weekend. love Hazel

Oh and I've gotta bore you with some more pics. I love the one with Les and Isobel and the cat I don't know who looks the most chilled out.

Hey ladies! Well, thanks for not being too chatty whilest I've been away...

Mel, where have you gone missy???

Hazel, I love youre pic updates on Isobel!! She is just the cutest little thing!!! :-) That pic with Les the cat and Isobel is priceless! That deserves being blown up and framed! LOL

Marcelle, sorry AF arrived but YEAH for a great look ahead! I can't wait to hear what the gyno has to say on Monday. :-) Should be exciting!

Annie, I'm so happy you're come to chat! :-) I understand how TTC is not out of your system... Has your acu suggested anything further?? How can you get such thick lining numbers?? Where did you do differently the last cycle? I would say I'm pretty pleased with 7.9mm then... LOL :-) He did not look at my charts but I told him that some months they are perfect and the rest of the time they are crazy and he said that is "classic PCOS". I almost feel like he doesn't want to dig deeper to find a TRUE cause and just pins PCOS as the diagnosis. Make sense?? Like PCOS is supposed to have Insulin Resistance, high levels of FSH/LH, high testosterone, cycles tend to be non-existant, and so forth... I don't feel like I"m 10%, obviously, but I'm just questioning it all. I don't feel 100% like that's what I've got. I really feel like my "extra baggage" is to blame for the hormonal imbalance and if I get my butt in gear I'll be back to how I was in high school before BCP... K, sorry for that rant. haha!

Sarah, oh Sarah... Where are you?? It's Friday!!!

Harriet, I'm anxiously awaiting you to update your chart today!!! Tell Dh to give you just uno moment to escape! LOL

Missy, I'm so pleased with you posting more! :-) YIPPEE!! Have you fit a second carseat in the new car? LOL I think I would have done that first thing! haha! :-) Make sure it looks cute that way too!

Krissy, it was super nice to chat for a minute last night... I hope you had fun, regarless of your vent sessions, at Bunko (sp?)!

So, my thoughts and feelings on Metformin... One, I'm not a fan of taking medications unless absolutely medically necessary. I'm SUPER sensitive! I have done the research on it and have heard about all the horrible side effects and just don't want to go that route... I would feel like I'm taking the eay way out as I once upon a did, did ahear to a strick "South Beach" type diet and and did lose 20+ pounds back in October 2006 when I was first dx. I went off it due to the temptations of Thanksgiving and Christmas.. Yummy stuff! LOL Just didn't get back on it hence like no more weight loss. I NEED to get back on such a lifestyle change and stick with it. After I know I"ve done all I can do naturally, I will then welcome medical assistance... I guess it really comes down to I don't want my body to rely on Metformin to control blood sugar levels and such. What would happen when I came off of it? My body wouldn't know how to function?? I just don't feel comfortable with it and need my butt kicked to get working out and eating right! LOL :-)

He did not find any more cysts... I did learn something new though. PCOS is not technically "cysts". They are just follicules that have not re-absorbed. I don't know. It's really weird. I do think once I'm done with school and we are full fledge 110% TTC I'll go get a second opinion. Maybe school is causing my homrones to be imbalanced due to all the stress?? LOL Gosh, gotta blame it on something! :-) I do need to go ahead and contact my friend who went to this Dr and find out his name/location. He specializes in Infertility. Is a one man office. I've heard great things about him and his success rate...

And let me say about my temp... My therm is obviously NOT broken. LOL Again, nanny'ing over night thus freezing cold and hence the low temp among the many conditions. Should be interesting to see tomorrow's temp! :-) And find out my progesterone numbers today! Super excited!

K, so now that I've written a book and no one's online I guess I should go get showered! Lukie is watching cartoons so I'd better take advantage of this quiet time! LOL

I'm on and I'm PISSED! :x Arturo had to take our nephew to work this morning and he decides to take MY car. Fine, whatever but he decides to take MY keys! So if there was an emergency and I needed the keys that are on MY keychain I couldnt! I am just so beyond pissed at his inability to think of these things, especially when he has perfectly good keys for my car! UGH! Stress me out! :(
