YAY!! I've been waiting for him to come home so we could TTC #2. And today marks the beginning of our journey. The only downside to this exciting news is, I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) so I won't be able to get preggo with the snap of my fingers like everyone else. It took us almost 3 years to get pregnant with Mini Me. I had to take Metformin (Glucophage), Provera AND Clomid. Before that I had to see two different doctors and go in for numerous tests. We finally were able to find a doctor at the next duty station that was willing to jumpstart my cycle with the Provera. Thank goodness!! I also looked into some natural herbal methods that I am going to say helped too.
Not being able to get pregnant easily takes a toll on me mentally and emotionally. I feel like less than a woman. Sad but true. But since we KNOW what the issue is now, we're hoping it won't be quite as long until we get a BFP. So, today I started the new dosage of Metformin (1000 mg twice a day). Tomorrow will be the first day I take this new medicine called Actos. I have to take that in the morning time. I'll be assisting these "man-made" drugs with Vitex and some Red Raspberry Leaf tea. I picked up a new book called "PCOS and Your Fertility: Your Guide to Self-Care, Emotional Well-Being, and Medical Support" since I don't have my first book that I had on PCOS (I let a friend borrow it). I may even be changing up my diet (need to look into this more) and tweaking my workout routine (which hasn't been ANYTHING since he came home, LOL).
