TTC #2.

As I sit here and write this, we are at the end of Cycle #6. 

Another failed cycle. 

Should I be surprised? Probably not. It did take 18 months (3 of Met.formin) to get pregnant the first time. At my year check up in April, I had just stopped taking BC, and was about half way through my cycle. My doctor was so sure that he would see me in a couple months. Well guess what Doc, nope. It's been 5 months since I've seen you & nothing.

I don't know if calling my Doctor would be stupid. 
I don't want to be waiting  6 more months then having to figure stuff out.


See the thing is. I don't know where I stand this time around.
See last time I got blood work done they sent me to a RE who said 
it could be PCOS & to try Met for 3 months then we'd go from there.

Well my insurance changed & I got pregnant. 
So I never went back. I got my new current OB/GYN.

I just don't know. Being in the dark about all of this is frustrating.
Some people say their bodies figured things out after pregnancy & didn't have problems with PCOS after. 

My cycles are still regular. But I can't keep my face clear.
Seriously. My face is constantly breaking out. 
Hair. Gosh. I don't even want to talk about it.
Weight. I gained back 5lbs after I stopped nursing.
 I can't get it to budge.

I don't know what to do. 
I don't want to call & be turned down.
But I don't want to miss the opportunity to be seen.

I just don't know where I stand. What I should say, when I call.
This is all so much.

Do you track ovulation?

I never had to do the whole TTC thing. Both of mine were surprises, but I have read up a lot on TTC and pregnancy. I know it's ridiculously hard to conceive - it's kind of one of those things like you have to stand on one leg while drinking a glass of milk during a full moon (kidding, of course, but I'm sure you get what I mean). I know it must be extremely frustrating, but hang in there - it will happen <3

I have never been in this position so I don't know exactly what you are feeling but I believe that it never hurts to ask. My suggestion is to call and ask your questions.

Think about it this way - what will make you feel worse? Not knowing at all? Or having them tell you not to come in? Be true to your emotions then follow them.

Hugs!

Saying a prayer for you! I can't imagine how frustrating it must be to want to be pregnant and for it to not be happening! Here's to hoping that it happens soon!

I know how frustrating that can be! I was told PCOS the first time around, too, and I am more irregular now than I was before I was pregnant! We TTC a second time, but it didn't happen. My heart goes out to you, 'cause I know how hard it is!

If you want to vent with someone who 'gets it', shoot me an email! (hiitsjilly@gmail.com) But, I would say if you feel like you need to make an appt with the doc, do it and don't let them brush you off! When you go in say, "Hey, I have a history of infertility, so I know I need help here!!"

SO glad I clicked on your cute face from the Weekend Blog Walk!

Well, I am basically in the same position as you, except I don't have regular periods so I'm on Clomid and Metformin (even though I have no clear indications of having PCOS). Before we even started TTC #2, I went to my OB and requested my prescription because I didn't want to waste my time trying without any help. I say...ask! There is no harm in asking for what you want. You are your own best advocate and, if it will bring you your 2nd baby a little faster, then it's all worth it in the end. Wishing you the best!

Honestly, I really understand your pain. I thought if we could get pregnant on an "oopsie" then trying to get pregnant shouldn't be a problem at all. Boy was I wrong. We tried for three years until it finally happened. Now we are in the home stretch of pregnancy.
I did what everyone said. i did months worth of trying to time it right, going by calenders and charts... nothing was working. Doctors said nothing was wrong. I started to stress out about it.
Then it seemed the month I just finally gave up we become pregnant.
I don't know why or how it took so long seeing as we are both healthy and nothing wrong to stop from getting pregnant. I really hope that it finally happens for you. It took us years and I hope the best it happens soon for you. I know the frustrations. Hang in there love.... I have my fingers crossed

My heart goes out to you. I've been in the TTC boat and took that horrible Clomid. My first one was a oopsie, the second another oopsie that turned out to be an ectopic and the third took a year and a half of trying. Unless you have been in the TTC boat, it is really difficult to understand the pain and heartache. It DID happen so please hang in there. If you have concerns or questions, you should not hesitate to see your doctor. That is their job - to provide you with information and support. Good luck to you - I truly wish you success in your TTC journey. xx

Hi there! I have PCOS too. I have always had trouble conceiving and then once I got pregnant, I would miscarry. I went to a RE who put me on 1500 mg of Metformin and I just had a baby 3 months ago : ) I stayed on it through out the pregnancy and he told me to stay on it postpartum. Metformin makes me feel like myself. I feel so tired without it. I would maybe try taking it again. If you have PCOS, then your progesterone could be too low to support a pregnancy without the Metformin. It helps regulate hormones. Hopefully it won't be too long, I know how frustrating it can be!

I'm sorry Sara - I know how frustrating TTC can be, even when it's your second! Personally, I went in for a consult after we passed the six month mark, and I told my doctor what I thought was wrong and that I wanted my kids to be close in age - and he had no problem helping me even though it hadn't been a year. I guess you don't know until you try? I'd just tell them that they suspected it was PCOS the first time, and that you think that might still be a problem and see what they say. I hope you can get something figured out soon! Saying a prayer for you now.

I would make the appointment. At least then you can feel as if you're doing something and get some answers too. Good luck, sweetie!
