Update on adding to our family... No, we're not pregnant yet! =)

Update... I've gone through some tests and stuff to find out why I'm not pregnant yet. My PCP wanted me to see an endocrinologist to talk about previous blood test results. My doctor has concerns that I might have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Synrome)... My sister, Renee, has PCOS and it can be genetic. I went to the Endo last Friday. She was AMAZING! I felt like she had all the time in the world for me. She told me, after we talked for a long time about my history, that I do have a mild case of PCOS. I thought that was weird. I never miss my period (there have been a few that were late, but they came), I ovulate, and all my blood tests are great. The Endo had me take the glucose test to see if my body could handle Metformin. I just got the results back today. She said my glucose levels are actually low, 80 fasting and 120 after and hour. Too low to go on Metformin, to help me get pregnant. So she suggested I go to my OB/Gyn to get started on clomid. I have an appointment on Tuesday. We'll see what he says! =) I'll let you all know too!!!!! =) =) =) =)
