  1. Cd 3 very nervous!

    by , 05-01-2012 at 01:34 PM (Got To Get My Heart Back)
    This is CD 3 for me and I really want to start Femara and try 5mg CD 3-7. However, I am soooooooo nervous when I think about taking the med. It's only for 5 days, but that's not what gets to me. It's the whole off label, internet pharmacy purchased thing that works for me. Why am I so afraid. I went into TTC my first child relentlessly and fearlessly, with clomid that I brought from Mexico. However it wasn't oddly named or generic. The name was in spanish (Clomifeno but it was still made by aventis ...

  3. My last post - I'm a mom now...now the infertility war wages on

    So I know it's been almost 2 years since I posted. Strangely things feel like they have come full circle because when I started this blog, I had a 2 year gap between the first and second post. I figured it was only right to close this out with a definitive post. My daughter was born in July 2011. It was a hell of a ride and my pregnancy was just as difficult as my battle to conceive. This time around my doctor was able to preempt my incompetent cervix and with a cerclage + 15 weeks of bed rest ...

  4. Three weeks in

    I think it has been about three weeks since i started back on the Metformin. I have noticed some weight loss. I am down to 147.5 from about 150. This doesn't SEEM very significant but it is to me because this is the first time i have been able to get under 150 in years. I am a very active person, i work out 5 times a week at least and usually for more than an hour but some-days if i only do cardio it is less. My skin is behaving but I still get cysts. I think it is because i have been eating sweets. ...

  5. AF is here...Oh the Pain

    by , 04-29-2012 at 12:07 PM (Got To Get My Heart Back)
    This on is painful. I don't know why, I just know that I woke up with it and man does it hurt. I am planning for this to be a lazy day, and probably a lazy week, but we'll see. I'm PISSED about the high level of sabotage there is in the world.

    I decided to broaden my horizons and apply to my current community college's nursing and physical therapy program. I was more than a little perturbed to arrive and orientations for both, only to hear of the slim number of applicants they will ...

  6. Tired of being a mystery diagnosis! :(

    It all started last year when I hadn't had a period in 5 months and doctor put me on BC to get me started and after 1 month of BC and my 1st period I was in severe abdominal/pelvic pain, doubled over felt like I was dying in pain, vomiting, diahreaha, acid reflux, faintish, this last for 3 hrs and then was very sick that whole week and lost 10lbs! I'm a thin sister so I didn't need to loose any weight! So stopped BC and decided I wanted to TTC#2 didn't O but twice in 6 months and found out I had ...

  7. Eating Clean...hehe Gripe Alert

    by , 04-26-2012 at 12:30 PM (Got To Get My Heart Back)
    So I have taken to strength training and clean eating. This morning I had plain oatmeal and 5 egg whites. Surprisingly it was tasty. My only gripe is the sweetening of it. Now the whole clean eating thing can make people obsess about stuff that, to me doesn't matter. I am tracking on my fitness pal to see where my calories end up with this clean eating lifestyle, but I'm hard to turn into a fanatic. Back to the point. I read that you can sweeten the oatmeal with maple syrup, and/or agave nectar. ...

  8. Next Cycle Please :)

    by , 04-25-2012 at 12:35 PM (Got To Get My Heart Back)
    So I've been taking provera for 6 days now. When I first started I had quite a bit of cramping which was different from my other two cycles, but hey, this is PCOS. Who know what the heck is going on in there? Anyway, I am debating whether or not to take the provera today and then call it seven or just stop now and wait for AF. AF usually arrives 3-4 days after the last pill and I am pretty eager to start to see if I O on Femara. I'm going to start at 5mg of Femara and I'm going to be taking it CD ...

  9. My, how things have changed...

    I can barely believe it's been over 2 years since I've written a post. And how much life has changed since then. On June 17, 2010, we followed doctor's orders and managed to make a miracle!! Eleven weeks later, I had surgery to place the abdominal cerclage, and our beautiful daughter was born at 39 weeks via c-section. She is healthy and beautiful and smart (and a test to my patience some days), but having this wonderful child in my life has made so many of the negative feelings of the past ...
