My apologies for the lack of activity lately - my family and I moved all the way across country (with my two little boys and a big crazy dog) to sunny southern California. I'm so excited to have accepted a new position with a fertility clinic there but the transition, to say it mildly, has been a challenge. We have finally settled in and I am so excited to be back at work here at About. Check back soon for new content this month and thanks for your patience!

Check out this information about taking metformin in early pregnancy.

Sorry for the slim pickings this month - I have been wrapped in some crazy stuff going on in my personal life. It's good news but slightly terrifying at the same time...
