Thank you, Thank you! I thought maybe I should give a little background on myself.

I'm Jen (29), my DH Joy (38) have been TTC #1 for 1.5yrs now. I was on BCPs for 14 years straight and when I stopped so we could TTC my cycles never regulated. My GP said it's normal don't worry, blah blah blah. But I knew something was wrong. I found an OBGYN and right away she knew something wasn't right either. After hormone tests and ultrasounds, I was dx w/ PCOS in Sept of 08. My testosterone wasn't too high and I'm not overweight so the dx was a shock to me. I started freaking out because she started talking about fertility treatments and then Jon and Kate Plus 8 images started playing through my mind. AHHHHH!

I went to see an Endocrinologist for my thyroid which was a tad off and he thought I have a mild case of PCOS and Metformin would balance everything out. I started Metformin in Oct of 08, ovulated for the first time and a week later I conceived. We were shocked and so happy! Sadly we lost the baby at 10 weeks (xmas eve!!) and had a D&C at 11 weeks.

So I started Metformin again and had two 27-28 day cycles after the D&C. We're allowed to TTC again in my 3rd cycle which I thought was going to be a dud but I ended up ovulating on cd35, better late than never I guess! I know my chances are a little less with late ovulations but plenty of ladies have ovulated really late and carried healthy babies. If they can do it then so can I darn it!!

Today I'm 6dpo and I've already had to bury my HPTs so I can't easily get to them.

I'm enjoying my time here but hopefully it's short.
