PCOS And Pregnant!

Posted by mommy2kaylia
My fiance and I had been TTC since September 2010. In January 2011, we found out we were expecting, then miscarried a week later. By May 2011, I had only had one period, and went to my Doctor for advice. He didn't really want to do anything for me- so I sought out a second opinion. I seen a nurse practitioner who referred us onto an Infertility Clinic in our area. November 30th we went for our appointment, where I was diagnosed with PCOS. I started metformin (850mg twice daily) the next day. By January, we still were not pregnant so I decided to start eating better and exercising more. I dropped 25lbs :)
I was speaking with a friend of mine about how discouraged I was getting that nothing was happening. She mentioned a lady in our area that does "Reflexology". I went for the first time the middle of February. LESS than a week later, I ovulated for the first time in over a year, and we conceived our little bean 02/21/12!! It may just be coincidence, but I'm going to be a firm believer in Reflexology from now on!! All it is is a foot massage (which is great btw!)- there are certain spots in the feet for every body part. When she hit the part for my ovaries, it hurt so bad I almost threw up on her floor. She said that she felt it in my feet, and worked on that spot quite a bit. Any ladies out there ttc, I recommend it! It is completely natural, and worked within a week for me!!

3 years- Argivo Therapy

Posted by jamieconner
After trying everything (herbs, fertility drugs, IUI, chiropractor) and spending more money than I care to think about...it was Arvigo Massage Therapy that we give credit to. After one round, I had a positive pregnancy test.

Shocked and shaking, I was able to tell my husband that we got a positive.

17 days late!!! BFP!

Posted by Sunnyviolet
So this is a bit late my son is now 5 weeks old but I found this site to be such a source of comfort during my TTC time.
My last period was May 20, 2011 I did not get a positive test until July 8, 2011! That's right 17 days past my expected period! That means he was conceived on June 25 one month and five days from my last period.
My period was normally a regular 29 day cycle. I was doing my basal temps and it seemed I had ovulated May 15.
I was thinking I had pcos as I had many of the symptoms and we had been trying for a year so I had started taking Vitex.
My grandmother died during this period so I put TTC to the side (ironically he was conceived the day she died, before I knew!) but when I saw I was late I was taking a pregnancy test every day, all negative until that 17th day.
I don't know how it happened but there it is. Miracles do happen!

9 Months TTC - A PRESEED SUCCESS STORY!

Posted by L-Chan
Hi ladies! This is surreal - that it's my turn to write a TTC Success Story. I'll share my tips and symptoms the best I can recall.

I am 26, DH is 30 - we've been married a little over a year and together for almost 5 years. We decided to start TTC in August 2011. I thought it would be fairly quick. When I didn't fall pregnant within the first 2 months, I decided to try some of the tricks listed on this site, such as:

-Women's Daily Multi vitamin
-Soy Isoflavones (CD 5-9)
-Evening Primrose Oil
-Maca
-Green Tea
-Removed Coffee and limited Alcohol from my diet

Not only did these items personally make me feel sick, but I honestly think they were affecting my ovulation. I had always felt O pain mid-month, but with all these items, I didn't. Also, I was never able to catch my O on an OPK. My OPKs and HPTs were all stark, stark white. I made a decision to stop taking all vitamins and start drinking coffee again about 3 months ago.

I know they're expensive, but I HIGHLY recommend investing in some Clear Blue Digital OPKs. The ones with the smiley faces. I have a 25-27 day cycle, and on CD 16, (3/18/12) I felt a pinch in my side and wondered "Is this ovulation?" I went home and took an OPK, and got my smiley face. By sheer coincidence, DH and I had sex once on Friday 3-16 and twice on 3-18 in the morning. After I got the positive OPK, we dtd one more time on 3/19 at night before bed.

I sincerely attribute this BFP to Preseed. I purchased a tube about 2-3 months ago, but I've been only using it as a lube - for which it is AMAZING. No itch, not gloppy...it's really a great product. This month, for the first time, I used it as directed and inserted the applicator all the way up to my cervix. I used about an inch worth of Preseed each time.

So anyway, I am at CD28, which is 1-2 days late for my period. I started testing yesterday with Wondfo cheapies, and thought I may have hallucinated a second line. This morning, I used a FRER using FMU and immediately got 2 lines within about a minute. (I've uploaded the picture to the site for fun). I woke up DH and said, "I got a positive test..." and his exact words were "Wow, that's real. Look what we did." ^_^

I went to the Doctor this afternoon to confirm, which they did. I will see the doctor again in about 2 weeks. Right now, this feels strange and surreal. I feel like I will get my period at any moment. I'm grateful, but in a daze. I'm sure it will crash down to reality soon! All I can say is hang in there, be patient and give it a year (assuming you do not have any medical issue). I had drinks at a party last week, drank coffee when I needed to.

Thanks for reading and good luck to you all!

3 months TTC, and BFP this morning!!! :)

Posted by mkm3880
So, first I want to thank this website, and all of the TTC moms out there that have submitted questions, stories, HPT pictures, and everything else, you're all awesome!! I have been on this website everyday for the last 3 months, reading success stories, checking symptoms, and praying for our BFP, and today is our lucky day!!! As far as symptoms go, I have been kind of tired, very vivid dreams, my left nipple looks like a GIANT pencil eraser, but the biggest tip off I had was drinking milk. I don't EVER drink milk, and for the last week, I have been craving milk with my dinner....the only other time I have been a milk drinker (except for when I was a kid, and my mom would make me), was when I was pregnant with my daughter.....

So, thank you all, good luck, and Baby dust to everyone!! :)
