Three books down and a thousand thoughts later...

So, it's for real. We are scared about the possibility and failed fertility treatments and are adopting. We've talked about it all week. DH seems so much more at ease. Except - there is so much to learn! Calling agencies, talking to people to did it themselves, the wait, the money, the birthmothers. It all seems a bit surreal and also a bit sad.
And then there is still the issue of the terrible-horrible-no-good-very-bad periods. I am in the process of petitioning my RE for metformin for the dreaded PCOS. Of course I have an 'old school' doc who believes in only prescribing me meds if I truly require them. So, more expensive blood work! In the mean time this Prometrium is no longer doing the trick. I just don't understand! I give up the baby bump, but still have to deal with this stupid shit! I want my BCP back... But I just cannot give up on the miracle that wont ever happen. (That is that my DH suddenly produces sperm and I miraculously ovulate). A girls allowed to dream, right?
I've been talking a lot about IF lately. Maybe my calling in life is to be an IF nurse educator... someone's got to tell the world how much our lives suck on a daily basis!

Maybe as you get further into the process you'll feel more confident and it will be easier to go back on the BCP. I don't want to be a negative Nelly but it took me a month to adjust to 2000mg metformin and I was miserable the whole month. Possibly not what you need right now? Although you know better than I do. : )

Oh my goodness! I somehow missed your last post! CONGRATULATIONS on your decision! I wish you all the best!

No advice on the periods, sorry.

But yay! This is so exciting!!
