I am back from my FS appointment and feeling good.

He did my scan (yay for dildo cam!) and is impressed with how well the drugs worked!!!! Pointed out a very thick looking endometrium (about 7mm I think he said) plus what looked like a corpus luteum (think he said it was about 2.5cm). So I have ovulated!! He didn't see anything bad in regards to my PCOS diagnosis so I am assuming I have a mild case (if there is such a thing).

Now its up to my body to do its job and implant me a baby!! Hahahaha...Anyways, he said its all very positive so I suppose you never know your luck.

I was much happier with how this appointment went. He was great at pointing things out during the scan and I got to ask my questions without being rushed out the door. I will go for a BT on Monday to check my progesterone levels so he can verify I did indeed ovulate and then I suppose I wait it out until AF is meant to arrive...

I will be on Metformin indefinately while TTC. Once pregnant he said its a different story and doctors have varying opinions on this...I couldn't be bothered asking more at this point in time...I figure we can cross that bridge when/if we come to it! Just hoping my body adjusts soon so I am not feeling crappy all the time. I suppose its good practice for morning sickness anyways....!

I am also pleased to report that we now have an action plan. I now know where we are headed on this crazy TTC journey, and I must say it's a big relief and has given me a weird peace of mind in a way....

We will do 3 cycles on Letrozole.
If no success then we proceed to IUI with Letrozole for 3 more cycles.
If we still have no success then it will be onto IVF.

So by October (and my 26th birthday) we could be on to our 1st cycle of IUI, and by the new year we could be on the road to IVF.

6 months...

I am desperately hoping it does not get to this point...that it will not take this long or this much more effort to get us our baby..but if that's what the universe has planned for us-then so be it.

Part of me is being extremely optimistic and hoping that we will fall this cycle. That the Letrozole was all my body needed to kick it into action.

A bigger part is being cautious and thinking by the 3rd cycle of Letrozole we should see our BFP.

An even bigger part is thinking IUI is what will be needed.

Only time will tell what road we will be going down, but for now I am satisfied knowing we have a direction, a plan and we are in the good hands of a specialist.

Today I am feeling hopeful.

I haven't felt like this in a long I am going to make it last as long as I possibly can.
