    Stickied!

    My staple breakfast lately: 1/2 cup cottage cheese, sliced strawberries and blueberries, a sprinkling of cinnamon. 1/2 piece of string cheese. Decaf (or sometimes caff) coffee with powdered non dairy creamer. Total: 180-200cals (depending on how much creamer) and 17 grams protein. There are some carbs from the fruit but I don't really bother to count that.

    I always do my cardio in the morning, and I'm on Metformin so I can't do 100% protein with no carbs or I get hypoglycemic during the workout, which feels awful!

    The other two meals I usually change it up, always carb/protein/veg and trying to incorporate full fat dairy for fertility. So today:

    Lunch - udon noodle soup with a poached egg, shrimp, zucchini, broccoli, green onions and ginger for flavour. Seaweed salad. 100g fresh pineapple. For dessert - 1/2 glass milk with homemade cookies. Total - 600 cals.

    Mid afternoon - Diet gingerale with Metamucil.

    Dinner - schnitzel pork chops, white rice, asparagus with hollandaise. 500 cals.

    Dessert - ice cream and homemade goodies, 200 cals.

    Np! I've filled my prescriptions from a Walgreens in the US, which I think were the Metformin branded ones. I've also had refills here at home that are the generics. I've used both interchangeably with no ill effects.

    I won't be starting the LE until probably June. As of Jan first I am vegetarian!

    I do have a question about metformin though. Long story short, I was on metformin from 6 months prior to conceiving DS 1 all the way through until I was in my second trimester with DS 2. When I was diagnosed with PCOS at age 18 I had high insulin and testosterone levels and I was very thin.

    Fast forward to now and I'm at my heaviest adult non pregnant weight (already working on losing weight!). My endocrinologist (for hypothyroidism/PCOS) checks labs frequently and even though I've been off metformin for over 3 years now, my insulin and testosterone levels are normal-low! I haven't really had the PCOS symptoms since my last pregnancy!

    I've tried getting back on metformin 4 times since then and every time I get up to 1000 mg (my old dose was 2000 mg) I start having extreme GI upset and vomiting.

    So ...... I don't know what to do! My labs really show I don't need it... but I know it sways girl.YKWIM?!

    I have heard that pregnancy can sometimes "re-set" your hormones and reverse PCOS. Ideas or recommendations for me?
