So, I’ve started taking the Metformin which I guess means we’ve made our decision to keep trying for a baby ourselves and put the adoption process on hold. I’m not sure if this is the right decision. I mean if we don’t keep trying then I’ll always wonder what if, but can I really put
myself us through more months (or years) of the unknown and potentially another loss…. I guess the fact we’re still trying, the answer is yes, but as I said I don’t know that it’s the right choice. Time will tell.
As for the Metformin, what lovely medication that is. Not! I took one a day for three days, as instructed, then increased to two a day. With one a day I had no ill effects, but the first day I took the double dose I was extremely nauseous. On the second day I had a very upset stomach. After that I dropped the second dose and then suffered with Constipation (sorry for the tmi as always)! I continued with the single dose for a couple of weeks, then at the weekend I tried to increase it again. Taking two tablets per day Saturday and Sunday, then one on Monday, and back to two yesterday and today. Yet again I’m suffering extreme nausea but that I can cope with, kind of. I know the nausea will soon settle if I continue taking the double dose as I’m supposed to. I just hope it helps with the weight loss, although so far it’s not and I feel hungry all the time, and that it helps us get our take home baby.
