Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
TTC with PCOS
I was diagnosed with PCOS February of 2009 after lots of hair growth, acne, weight gain, inability to lose weight, etc. I got married in 2010 and we started TTC 9 months after marriage. I was/am on 2,000mg of metformin/day. When I was unsuccessful after three months, I started a strict no sugar no flour meal plan. My endocrinologist suggested I try using an ovulation predictor kit after being on the diet for four months with no pregnancy (but with a 30 pound weight loss). To my amazement, I was ovulating! Sadly, I was out of town on business when I ovulated. The next month, I was in town, and I got a BFP 13 days after ovulation. My cycles have ranged from 31 days to 50. The first symptoms I noticed were sore boobs, and I got a bad cold. I also had to pee more often especially at night. My endo and OB have told me that it's because I lost weight on my no sugar no flour eating program that I became pregnant. I highly recommend it.
