• jlevine-I had to take clomid 50mg on cd 3-7, so yes 3rd of day your period. I then had to take estradiol cd 8-12, I had gotten pregnant after the 1st round. I had my baby boy June 16th. I took 200mg prometrium to get my af regular. I’m 33, have been diagnosed w/ pcos for 10 years. Hubby and I tried for about a year to concieve. I’m overweight as…[Read more]

  • HannaM- that’s not entirelt true. Please read my posts. I just had a baby June 16th, am 33, conceived at the highest weight I ever was, and didn’t follow the UNBALANCED low carb. Anytime you cut out an entire food group there’s a prob. There are good and bad carbs. Its so annoying when people think an extreme is gonna help. Balanced diets are the…[Read more]

  • Paulan-i just gave birth to a healthy baby boy on June 16th. I’m 33 and was diagnosed with pcos 10 yrs ago. When I was pregnant with my boy the test showed a REALLY faint positive. Doc said it would be incredibly rare to have a false positive. Also the test instructuons themselves even state that results looked at over a certain amt of time aren’t…[Read more]

  • mum and ludi-I have pcos, metformin did nothing for me. I went on natural progesterone, then got regular periods, had a m/c. Then last October got pregnant on 1st round of clomid. I was the heaviest I ever weighed, infact prior to getting pregnant I had gained about 40 lbs. I had my little boy June 16th. It took a total of 10 mths to get pregnant.…[Read more]

  • yes, I bled when I had a miscarriage.

  • happyday-I took metformin and still never ovulated. It never helped with ANY symptom. Doc gave me NATURAL progesterone and I started to have periods again, he started me on it in Feb 2009. I miscarried in June 2009. He put me on clomid, 1st round was end of Sept 2009 and I became pregnant October 1st, I am now 36 1/2 weeks pregnant due to have…[Read more]

  • Metformin doesn’t do a thing for me. I’m 33wks now and got preg after taking natural progesterone for a few months, which made me have my period again, and then took 1 round of clomid with estradiol and got prego the first round. Doc kept me on progesterone pills until 12 wks. I have no current complications and my baby boy is measuring in the…[Read more]

  • I have to disagree in a way with sharonh. I’m 31 wks, due in June and have ZERO complications, my low lying placenta moved, doc said last time was 23wks, so it was bound to move. My blood pressure is better than when not pregnant, but has always been good. I had pregnancy acne in my 1st and 2nd trimester, but most women,with or without pcos get…[Read more]

  • I have PCOS and am 23 1/2 weeks pregnant. I’m overweight and my doctor has never put me on birth control because it is made of synthetic hormones, instead he put me on natural progesterone and metformin. I stopped taking the metformin, no reason, it wasn’t doing anything, the progesterone itself gave my back my period. Hubby and I started to try…[Read more]

  • Jessp-I’m proportioned all the way and I’m tall, I do have a long torso, though, oh and I have a butt, just not a boooooty, lol. At first I had a ‘b’ belly, but it went away pretty fast and now its pretty round, but like oblong because of my height and long torso. Like I don’t feel baby boy in my ribs-EVER and u/s tech agreed its because my long…[Read more]

  • Ferrell-keep your head up! I’m 32, have PCOS, am 5’9 and 280 lbs, I am 23 weeks pregnant! We tried for 10 mths before it happened. I wasn’t on metformin, the only thing I took was NATURAL progesterone, still didn’t get prego, then doc put me on clomid with estradiol (on different cycle day) and after 1st round I came up pregnant. I didn’t and…[Read more]

    Whatever, there is NO excuse for smoking while pregnant! I would rip her a new one, too if I was her doctor. We all have stress but that doesn’t give you a free pass to put your baby in danger. My doc has never belittled me, I think it depends. Anyway, how selfish of her to smoke. Hopefully she gets a grip before she does some serious damage to her baby!

    Deebo-when I was prego I used to mow our land, I had asked doc if I could wear OFF! Bug spray and he said yes, thank goodness because the chiggers and ‘skeeters sure love that sweet meat! Good luck, your coming to a close now.

  • College-I totally understand, when I was in my early 20s (32 now) I suffered from bulimia, prior to becoming pregnant I was a 12 and am 5’10. Anyway, I’m just about 37 wks and haven’t gained any weight at all, in fact I’m 3 lbs less. I eat small healthy meals, lots of veggies and lean proteins and whole grains. I eat about 2200 calories a day and…[Read more]

  • Lilith-what a jerk! If your diabetes is under control your baby will NOT be big because of it. My baby is measuring in the 49th percentile which is right at the national average. My sugars never go above 120 and I eat a ton of veggies and no sweets except a 1/2 c ice cream at night, even then sugars stay around 100.

  • My doc said its a myth about not finding the hb and not feeling kicks until later. I heard hb at 13 wks.

  • Kim-I’m just over 23wks, I’m 5’9, long torsoed, I’m proportioned pre pregnancy, I’m a size 22 pants before baby…I started to really show about 20 wks. I’m looking super prego now, no denying it! The only thing that sucks for me is that my lower tummy hasn’t bumped out as much as my upper, so I wear lounge pants and yank them up so its more one…[Read more]

    I did weight watchers and lost about 15 lbs while ttc and nothing, I gained it back (glutton, lol!) and then became pregnant after gaining the weight back. I’m currently 29 weeks and have no complications. I have pcos since I was 23 and am now almost 33. I have gained 0 lbs this pregnancy and all is going great so far, praise God!
