Gosh I feel like I have so much to type and I don't know where to begin! Brace yourself, this might get long and I totally get it if you bail half way through it. A lot of the reason

Well done Michelle!

You did so well to go in with a plan, especially the part where you made him think the meds were all his idea (so REs are just like DHs, huh? they like thinking they come up with all the good ideas? I would have never guessed... ;) )

I'm so pleased for you that the insurance will cover most of your costs. I understand your feelings of apprehension but this all sounds so positive for you!

All the best! B

Thanks girls :) I dunno how I would get through all this without you. DH is about to go comatose listening to me talk about this stuff.

I was thinking about this last night as I fell asleep:

Other studies find links between miscarriage and raised levels of luteinizing hormone, a hormone that stimulates ovulation. Still other findings indicate the high levels of androgens may be contributors to miscarriage in women with PCOS

That totally explains why the majority of my OPK's have a pretty decently dark line. I mean not enough to call + but darn close. That is why I have to use digitals to keep from losing my mind. Again, something I knew but never really thought about. Consistently high LH levels are also a symptom of PCOS.

I just wish I understoof how Metformin is supposed to help if there is no insulin resistance problem. Of course I will google it, but I also plan to ask the nurse at my CD 3 appt.
