    Hi everyone! I come back and check on everyone when I can. I just thought I would update you. As many of you know I am finally pregnant with my second child after two years of TTC, one loss in July 2010 and tons of frusteration. I feel like in some ways I have mastered this mess of PCOS. I was on progesterone for the first 16 weeks of my pregnancy due to threatened loss with this baby. And now I am (YAY) 25 weeks, almost 26 and she is viable. I never knew I would be so excited. I have already gone into pre-term labor once causing hospitalization and now have an at home medication I can take for contractions which is a regular medication now. My blood pressure is high and I have protein in my urine so I am boarderline pre-eclamptic already. We are just trying to get me to 37 weeks. I go in every other week for a fetal fibronectin test (which tests a secretion by the cervix for a hormone that indicates labor will occur in the next 7-10 days) and an ultrasound to check cervical length. If the fetal fibronectin test comes back positive I have to start sterioids to help her lungs. She is definitly and she and is the only one in there. I really hope to see some of you get pregnant soon. Its hard and scary and having PCOS makes pregnancy more high risk but its possible!!

    I posted on one of the other threads about how I managed mine but if anyone has questions let me know. When I went and saw my RE he said given my lab results he was suprised I am so femine apperaing. I have really high testosterone and my sugars were beyond out of wack WITH metformin. Luckily following his advice I lost 40 pounds, and got most of it undercontrol.
    Me (25), DF (26), DS (2.5). TTC 2 since May 2008. M/C 7/2010 PCOS and on a whole regimine and DF has sperm motility issues. Crossing our fingers!!

    Thanks so much for posting this! It certainly gives me hope. I hope your lo is able to stay in for as long as possible. I appreciate all your advice and hope you check in often to see if there are any other posts you can shed light on. This board is super slow with just a few of us, but I'm trying to keep it alive. I can't imagine there are not others out there dealing with what all of us are dealing with. I will keep you and the lo in my thoughts and prayers for a safe pregnancy and delivery.
