Hi - first post on HelloBee!

My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for over a year. As soon as I went off my birth control, I gained 25 lbs almost instantly. I found out I have PCOS, and got put on Metformin. The metformin has made me absolutely miserable, has not really helped take off the weight, and certainly hasn't helped me get pregnant.

We both went to the fertility specialist, and found out that my husband has low morphology and motility. We found out that I have very few eggs left for my age (I'm almost 31). I did the HSG and while everything was fine there, they recommended IUI. I went to the injectables meeting where they walk through the whole process, and personally I just didn't feel it was for me. I already feel like a stranger in my body with the effects of PCOS and I was concerned about the side effects of the shots, and that it could take several IUIs to even work.

My husband and I sat down, and he immediately felt uncomfortable with the whole process. After a long heart-to-heart, we've decided to move forward with adoption. We'll most likely be doing either special needs international adoption, or adoption from foster care here in the U.S. We're filling in our families this weekend, and I'm a little nervous! I'd love to hear from other people going this same route!
