Brilliant news Tanya that your babies arrived safe and well! What a wonderful Christmas present! So cute that they have some character already. Take care of yourself!
Miracle, to answer your question, I get stomach cramps with the Metformin. I also get the runs sometimes if I eat something that is less than healthy. My GP put me onto Diabex ER, (ER standing for extended release), and I've found that this is a lot better. It's the equivalent to extended release fertiliser for plants - you don't get a big dose in one go. But I still get a sore tummy. And yes, I will still be taking it, now I'm on it, I'm not going to go back off it. From what I remember, it is better to be on it when trying to fall (but don't quote me)
The FS recommended that I go with IUI again, just to see if it will take. There is no medical reason why it shouldn't. He'd rather do this than go for the more invasive IVF option. And I can see his point - maybe the new sperm will work better.
Must admit to a little feeling of 'oh no, here we go again' as we went and saw him. Also, our donor still has to do some blood tests, so I have to chase that up with him (again). We have to sign off on some paperwork, but we should be ready to go again by January. I was a little shocked it was so soon.
So, I need to chase our SD, then sign off. I remember something vaguely about more counselling, so I'll chase that too.
Anyway, off to buy some furniture. Hopw everyone else is going well. And again congratulations Tanya!
