Monday Updates

I had to call my Dr. today and let them know that I started my cycle last week (I was sick and never called). He told me to wait 2 full cycles and call him on the 3rd. I am estimating that should be end of Feb. or beginning of March (That’s IF I don’t have TOO long of cycles). I was on Foremet which is like Metaformin, but just the name brand and you only have to take it once a day vs. multiple times a day, however the pill is huge and it’s becoming hard for me to take, not to mention it’s more expensive that Met.—so I am also switching to Met!! I asked my Dr about another HSG (to see if my tubes are still unblocked) when I get done with this break before we start back on the IUI’s and he said that might be a very good idea, if anything if will lube them up, so I am hoping I will be able to have that done.

Other than that…I started my low carb diet today…I am super excited and I hope I can lose at LEAST 10 pounds while being on this break!!!! Also we are planning a b-day party/superbowl party…I will be turning the BIG 2-5 on the 2nd and our “boy’s” will be playing in the SUPERBOWL on the 1st…GO STEELERS!!!!!!! So we are excited about that!!! Well that’s it for now, just wanted to update everyone :o)

when i was on metformin it made me sick and gave me bloody noses. you have any side effects from it? have you thought about injectables after the break? those are expensice but work better. i myself am not sure how far i am willing to go with the infertility treatments. do you think god approves of IVF? i am on the fence on that. keep writing, we need your great blog. erin

Hi Erin,

This is my first time on Met. I normally take Fortamet (which is almost the same thing) so far I haven't had any side effects on met. the only thing I got from fort. was upset tummy if I ate sugar...

I think God leads you to things...I think it's all in God's time so if you have IVF and you don't get pregnant it's b/c God wasn't ready...I do believe that God knows that some of us just have to do certain things out to "help" our chances out...if that makes sense...but I don't think God at all disaproves of IVF...

As for injectables, EWWW I just can think about the price of them right now...plus then I would have to start going to an actual RE, which I am not ready for yet...so were just hoping and praying that God's time for us is just around the corner :o)

There will be many more blogs, I'm a little addicted to bloggin now to just quit hahaha....have a good day and keep your faith up :o)
