Oxford -- Your DH sounds wise. A month of metformin before the Clomid seems wise. Are you monitoring glucose levels while you get adjusted to the metformin? I'm so excited for you!
Chuord -- my DH is the same way. When I was bemoaning us coming up on a year of TTC without a sticky pregnancy, he said, "Well, we haven't *really* been trying." Men have no idea sometimes.
Re: thread talk, the TTC talk doesn't bother me in the slightest. I've been talking with some of you for so long; I really want to know the rest of your journey. I'm also definitely not ready to join a DDC (if I will at all; I get overwhelmed by that many people). I am optimistic about this pregnancy, but still very guarded.
AFM, I had to pick up balloons at the $ store, so I grabbed some preg tests. I took one this afternoon, still a good positive. I'm tired, kind of grumpy, but otherwise okay. I take medications for chronic insomnia and am trying to taper off. It quite frankly sucks. My sleep pattern is very distupted right now. I stayed on them during my pregnancy with DD, but my work situation is more flexible, so I feel that my life situation can withstand a little more lost sleep. I'm 1/3 cut down on one med and 1/2 on the other. I hope to be med-free (well, I'll take Benedryl to help with sleep, but that' widely considered kosher) within a few weeks. Wish me luck with the adjusting. I've been on these for years, and my brain doesn't like this at all.
I did decide to find an OB/GYN this time around, because of the meds and the possibility that I might need medication later on. I love my midwives, but I've often felt like a defective model because I'm not coming to them in perfect health. I really wrestled with thr choice, but I'm pretty sure this is what I want. Who knows, though. I might have my first doctor's appt and immediately run in the other direction. My midwives do have me spoiled in some ways.
How's everyone else doing?
