New and Improved Plan

I had my follow up appointment with my OB and here is our plan moving forward:

- I started on Metformin ER (extended release) 500mg, and will continue to take that through the 1st trimester when I get pregnant again.

- I had 11 vials of blood drawn yesterday for my RPL testing, results pending.

- Once my period decides to make it's grand entrance, I will take Clomid again since it seems to work for me.  If my period doesn't start by the first part of December I am to call for Provera to induce one.

- When I get pregnant again I will be on progesterone suppositories through the 1st trimester.

I'm so happy with this plan.  It's everything I was hoping for going into this appointment.  What's great is my OB suggested most of these things so I didn't even have to push her to do any of it.  I've had this inner struggle for a long time as to whether or not I should be moving on to an RE.  However, I feel so comfortable with my OB and feel like she's doing all the right things at this point that I'm glad I decided to stick it out with her.  Obviously if I don't get pregnant again with a few more cycles of Clomid, it might then be time to re-evaluate things.  But for now, I couldn't be more excited about our plan and the possibilities of what the future holds!


  1. Glad you're excited! I feel so much better about things with a plan as well.

  2. Yay! Love your new plan too. Can't wait for your next BFP to stick! xo

  3. Having a dr you're comfortable with is half the battle. When you feel confident in the care you're receiving, it's way easier to take the bad news... and way easier to GET good news!

    I'm glad you're good, and look forward to the RPL testing results.

  4. It sounds like a great plan! Good luck with the RPL testing...

  5. im glad you are happy with your new doctor! wishing you all the luck in the world! x

  6. Yay, so glad you have a good plan in place that you are comfortable with...that is huge!
    Good luck moving forward!
