Re : could early pe mean something else?

<t>I don't know the answer to this one. I was diagnosed with PE at 26+4. Ellie had IUGR and Down syndrome. I have not been given any definative answers re any connections. I don't think we will ever know whether Ellie was extra tiny due to failing placenta or Down syndrome or both. One thng I know f...

Re : Gulocose tolerance results back.

<t>Hi Lou<br/> <br/> Oats are definately very good - if you can cope with porridge in the mornings! They have the right sort of carbs ie low GI and therefore slow release, keeping your blood sugar level.<br/> <br/> I had gd with Ellie and have been borderline diabetic ever since, but am controlling ...

Re : How long to you TTC before you worry?

<t>Denise, a late reply to your question re cramping and pcos. I have always had bad cramping and also very heavy periods which can be irregular but do arrive every month or so. Not everyone goes months without periods with pcos. <br/> <br/> You say you are getting a surge on opk's - can I ask which...

Re : How long to you TTC before you worry?

<t>Denise, if pcos is a possibility get it checked out asap. I have pcos which was undiagnosed until I was unsuccessfully ttc about 8yrs ago. There are various treatments which can help...clomid being one, or metformin if pcos diagnosed (that is what I am waiting on now).<br/> <br/> Good luck!<br/> ...

Re : I will be gone for a while too

Thinking of you Susan. Although hospital bedrest is difficult, you are in the right place, and you are being looked after. Hope you can keep cooking a bit longer.

Re : 30 March update

<t>Thanks for the replies. Im feeling a bit more positive today.<br/> <br/> Kris, the luteal phase is the part of the cycle between ovulation and start of af. I understand it should ideally be between about 10-14 days. Mine have been more like 8/9. I have pcos so it can be a problem caused by my str...

30 March update

<t>Af showed up again today [:(]. Im feeling especially down this month as I was so hoping I would get + before our 1st wedding anniversary next week. <br/> <br/> I have been charting and using opks and appear to be ovulating around cd17-21. This in itself is encouraging because I have pcos. I also ...

Re : A Week Tommorow

<t>Kim<br/> I also know how hard certain dates can be. I was admitted to hospital the day before my 40th birthday and Ellie was born 2 days after my birthday. Not only a birthday, but a 'landmark' one. I totally understand your feelings in the lead up to your birthday. Having the hospital appointmen...

Re : Endocrinologist Visit - VERY Interesting

<t>Very interesting to know this! I also have pcos and was never told of the link with pe. Have recently seen an endocrinologist here and hopefully will soon be prescribed Metformin.
