Hi ladies!

I could really use all of your help, even if you aren't currently pregnant.

I had PCOS and had to stop eating gluten, take Metformin/Glumetza (1500 mgs a day), and use progesterone suppositories starting BEFORE my period was due (but after getting a BFP).

Honestly?? DUMB LUCK!! I've had PCOS all my life, and ovulated maybe once a year. I even spent 7 months without AF in 2008!!! But in jan 2009, I noticed fertile signals, and started charting.. apparently I ovulated in jan., feb. and april. Guess what? In april we had a woopsie 5 days before my ovulation... and I got pregnat!!!

I went off my BCP in December 2008 and we started trying that month. After a few months of no success I had read about on one of my boards about pre seed since I was having low mucus probably due to coming off the pill.
