So I've been taking my Metformin 2250 mg for close to a year now. I am days away from second trimester. Both my OB and my Endocrinologist want me to stop the Met by then. Why am I scared to? I lowered my dose to 1500mg at 12 weeks, and tonight plan on only taking one pill, 750 mg. I know there are plenty of PCOS patients who take metformin throughout their pregnancy. Why do so many doctors have different protocols? I am partially scared that if I stop, I am going to gain even MORE weight quicker and I will be very nervous about the GD (Gestational Diabetes's) test. I don't have insulin resistance, but am worried about it being pregnant with PCOS.
If any of you know why some people stay on Met throughout pregnancy, let me know. Thanks :)
