    I've thought about writing this post a million times, and I'm still shocked that I'm able to write to you now. This morning I tested and got my BFP!!!!!!!!! 2 years and 3 months into TTC I FINALLY got my BFP!!!! It looks like Femara was my miracle drug after all! I'm going to call my OBGYN's office this morning and schedule my first appointment. WOOHOOOOO!!!!!!!!

    I had always glamorized telling DH. It went nothing as planned. I took a digital test this morning. As I waited for it I brushed my teeth, fully expecting it to be another BFN. When the word "pregnant" came up on the screen, I'm pretty sure I almost choked on my toothpaste. I ran into the bedroom screaming "hunny, hunny!" He was still sleeping and it took him a few minutes to register what I was doing when I shoved the test in his face. He smiled and gave me a high five, to which I responded "go team!" It was kind of funny, but not at all what I had fantasized about.

    I told some of you ladies earlier that this month just felt different. I don't know how to explain it. I could just tell something was a little bit off. DH for the past few weeks has been convinced that I was pregnant. For once, I'm not upset about him being right! So, I guess that Florida trip will have to wait after all!

    Hang in there ladies. All of those ups and downs, negative tests, extensive blood work, etc. are worth it to savor this moment right here. I'll make sure to check in with you ladies. Good luck to all of you!

    maragayle replied to sproutkm's response:
    I did a total of 5 rounds of Femara, the last 4 I ovulated. To be fair, I think I messed up my cycle days on the first round. I did a total of 8 rounds of Clomid with 2 different OBGYN's offices before being referred to a RE and starting the Femara. My RE indicated that people with PCOS usually do better on Femara than on Clomid. The other thing the RE did was double my dose of metformin, so I've been taking 2000mg/day.
