A little update for any who are curious:
I went to my appointment hoping to be prescribed Clomid. I was also prescribed Metformin although I don't have pcos just long irregular cycles. My doctor thinks it may help shorten and regulate them. I Started 500mg of Metformin and didn't feel any side effects so the next day I upped it to 1000 and diddnt feel anything and today I upped it to 1500 mg and felt a little nauseaous for a few minutes but nothing else. My doctors hopes were that I would be able to be at 1500 mg so I'm glad that my body is handlingit well. Now I'm just waiting for AF to start so I can start Clomid days 5-9. If not by next week I'll take provera to jump start it. I will be monitored throughout my first round of Clomid and if I need any after that I will be on my own. My doctor will be doing the "Clomid challenge" to see if my ovaries are working properly. I'm excited to get the ball rolling. Good luck TTC this month ladies! I hope we all get BFP!

Hi everyone!! My husband and I are on month 2 of TTC! I am currently in my two week wait on CD20 and 6DPO! I have been using the app OViA and tracking my ovulation with OPK. I have a very normal 28-29 day cycle but ovulated a little early this cycle. Hoping this is the month. My mother and sister only had to try one time with each child so hoping it doesn't take us long. My father currently has terminal cancer so hoping to get pregnant so I can share some of it with him! Also my uterus is retroverted so I just read online that we shod BD from behind (tmi) I know. So I guess we will try that nextonth if nothing happens this month. But I'm nervous and hoping we don't have trouble!! I love being able to talk about it to someone!!! Let me know if you have any advice!

Ohbaby- no advice either but hi! Welcome! I hope it happens quickly for you!

AFM- I'm excited for AF to end and get on with this new cycle. I'll be going on vacation during my tww so that will make it a lot easier I think.

Good morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I had a long one due to MLK Jr. birthday, and I was ovulating, so I just tried to focus on being happy and BD! Stayed offline for three straight days to help not going insane! I ovulated quite a bit early on cd 10 or maybe 11. So I am currently 2-3dpo. I woke up this morning with a crazy backache! I feel like I've done 100 sit ups. My abs are so sore! I'm sure it was because I didn't sleep the greatest.
OhBaby- welcome! My only advice is to just enjoy the process and try not to let ttc take over your life! :) I'm speaking from experience here. lol

emeraldblue - I must say 3 days bd was nice! :) There have definitely been months when bd seems like work, but not this month! TMI - sometimes I feel like during the only thing I can think about is "is this going to work this time?" But I've just tried to relax a bit and not focus on the goal, just enjoy the moment! :) I am currently coaching volleyball, so I'm hoping that will help distract me for the next two weeks! Other than that, I probably will track every single little movement or feeling my body does and obsess if it's a symptom or not! :wait:

Exactly! This cycle I'm trying to tell him less of the details (e.g. timing of BD) just to keep the pressure off of him.
