  • You did the right thing by going to your doctor. Hopefully the meds will work for you. Good luck! I'm sending lots of baby dust your way.

  • Hi there
    If you're on Metformin then I'm guessing that you've been tested and found to have PCOS, diabetes or insulin resistance? What tests have you had?

    Diet plays a huge part in fertility. Things like caffeine and/or alcohol can have a huge effect on fertility. And if you're on metformin then watch your intake of carbohydrates, especially sugar.
    Oh and of course, drink plenty of water!

    I know it must seem hard because it sounds like you were blessed quite quickly with your other 2, but did you know that nutritionally it takes about 18 months to get back to your pre-pregnancy levels. Have a look at your diet and see if there's any ways that you can help your body to be at its best.

    I hope this helps, and once again
