Simone: Dr. M gave me a combo pill, Lo Loestrin Fe dosage = 1mg/10mcg. She said its relatively new, but was recently approved for breastfeeding moms who had an established milk supply. i could feel the difference in mine after day 1 of taking it.. at first i didnt, but the next day towards afternoon hours, Layla could barely get anything out of me. Maybe its approved for breastfeeding moms who still EBF in those early stages, but I think it affects me because of the fact that layla doesnt EBF anymore since being introduced to solids. Not sure. Either way, I stopped it and my supply has gone right back to what it was. We didnt feel the mini pill would be a good fit for me with my memory issues and since its progestin only and thats what Mirena has and I bled constantly on that. So, DH and I are just going to temp (although he doesnt believe me when I say "I O'd!, we're ok now".. he doesnt think that you can possibly know when you are fertile or not. MEN! lol) and use protection. I am also having to hunt down latex free condoms now as well since apparently Im mildly allergic to that. >_> Have you ever heard of Lo Loestrin FE and BF'ing? I couldnt find anything
Alix: Migraine = not good! Have you tried the chiro for that? Especially now that you are PG..it may help if it didnt before. Your body reacts totally different PG..lol. Call your OB and explain your migraine situation to them as well, they may be able to tell you if its ok to take it or not, they have a list. Besides, thats what you pay them for!

Hey ladies. Got my labs drawn yesterday and of course as expected my cholesterol is high. Not overweight just genetically screwed on that one. My primary doc said the FSH and estrogen looked normal, but will default to the infertility specialist for that. I didn't get those numbers, but they are mailing them to me. I need to call the pharmacy to have them fill my clomid from last month I didn't take.
Brie- Glad you got the mini pill. Even though it's important to take at the same time everyday...if you are worried you can't you can still try to use condoms or maybe a diaphragm? Good luck with school. @ more after this isn't bad at all!
Simone- Hope you're doing well!
Alix- I bet your excited for you first US. Soon, soon, soon!
Isra- Hope you are settling into your new place better now!

Simone- Sorry about AF. I know what you mean though about trying to look at it positively because you now know where you are in your cycle. I kinda felt that way about this month knowing that AF came on here own and having not taken clomid last cycle.
Alix- I sure hope so, too! It would be unreal. Feeling tired of being the spectator on this topic being around so many friends and coworkers expecting. That must be so increadibly frustrating to work like that. I obviously don't understand all the ins and outs, but hopefully your situation at work will improve. Seems like you last job at the hotel was crappy, too.

Alix- Well, I would stand your ground. If it's something that truly is not in the best interest of your health that's not okay, Pregnancy is not an excuse to get out of doing things, but it certainly is a reason to be cautious about doing certain activities though. It's unfortunate that you work with people who say one thing and mean another. I can only hope that's what my body is trying to do.
AMF- Picked up my clomid and started it today.
