Decisions have been made

So we made some decisions about whether or not we should keep trying. We are praying that we are following God's plan for our life.

The good news is I finally found out why my doctor put me on birth control for 14 days every time my follicles are developed are the right size. It is because supposedly the birth control pill allows my ovaries to rest for 2 weeks then with the Metformin and the Femara it overloads my ovaries and tells them to get to work.

I hope that they start working on there own...we will see.

On Hold?

So on day 12 of my last cycle we went in for a follicle scan and my follicles still weren't developing so we stopped that cycle (meaning that I go on birth control for 14 days), I continue to take 500 mg of Metformin twice a day and 5mg of Femara days 5-9.

I saw the on-call doc since day 12 was a Saturday, and he had some blood drawn and I am still waiting for the results. However, since neither of us have a job right now and not ovulating is only causing more stress we have talked about going back on birth control for the time being and just taking a break until life settles down.

I know everyone says that if wait until you are ready to have kids you won't ever have them, but I think that if we really want to provide the best home for our future children we might want to wait until we can at least pay to live.

Also, my weight went up this week...which really sucks, but I did get my book in the mail "The Natural Diet Solution for PCOS and Infertility" by Nancy Dunne. It is quite informative so I am hoping the more I read I will be able to change my diet and see some results...

I will keep you posted!
