Hi ibelieve,

Yes, you can exercise on the South Beach Diet. Please you're going to give it a go, I really think it's a great diet.
Not sure about PreSeed and boys, as I know a few ladies with baby girls who used it. but in my case I have a boy and I used it. Good luck, keep us posted.

Ibelieve, I'm so sorry about your scan. At least you have a plan now and your gynae is on board. Having a plan is key to feeling like you are moving forward. Keep us posted on your procedures. I'll be thinking about you!

My scan went well. I had 1 follicle on the right that measured 18 and one on the left that measured 19. My lining was almost 9. Doc said she couldn't have asked for a better response. We are set for IUI on Wednesday afternoon. I have to wake up at 12:45 in the morning tonight to give myself the HCG shot! Crazy! My doc says they know I will ovulate 39 hours after the shot so they make my appointment and then calculate back to tell me when to do the shot. Fingers crossed!

What are your thoughts on this...DH and I BD'd Saturday. He has to give a "specimen" Wednesday. I was planning to BD tonight and then not again until after Wednesday. I was thinking Saturday to Wednesday is too long for him and we wouldn't get the best result, but I also don't want to "short change" us either if do it tonight. What do you think?

Ibelieve, I am SO SO sorry! Is there another doc that you could go see? I would think they would at least want to meet with you to discuss your chart and come up with a plan.

ladies

Ibelieve - So sorry...but you've got every chance of losing 20lbs quickly on the SBD. It's such a pain when they tell people who have hormonal driven weight issues to "lose weight" because it's just not as simple as cutting the calories and exercising more. Do you have PCOS or just a hormone imbalance as I wondering if Ovarian Drilling might suit you? I've got loads of confidence and faith that you can lose weight well once you're on the SBD and I'm going to be cheering you on. You can go 3 weeks on Phase 1 if you can cope with it and that'll give you an extra boost, especially with your exercise regime

Sib - Sorry logged in late for advice on bd and the SA. Good luck with the SA. Is your DH on any vitamins? My DH took Wellman Conception for Him. Let us know how it goes.

Ibelieve, I'm glad you're feeling better! You can do this and we are here to cheer you on!

Kyla, thanks for being here!

We are actually have an IUI this afternoon, not an SA. I'm a little nervous because I am not feeling any fullness or pressure in my ovaries. I hope I didn't ovulate yesterday! Anyway fingers crossed!

When TTC #2, I did not ovulate on 3 rounds of Clomid (doses 50, 100, 150.) So we moved on the Femara 2.5mg. I was also on Metformin. My dr did not do an US mid cycle, so I don't know if I had any follie grow or not, but I did not O at all. My dr was a OBGYN and only prescribed the low dose of Femara. She said that sometimes (unlike Clomid) that it can take a couple rounds to get you ovulating. So I did round 2 of Femara 2.5mg and got the Ovidrel (spelling??) shot on cd 12. She did an US this round and I had an 18mm follie.

Got my BFP at 3 weeks 3 days. :-) So don't give up! I would consider going back to the dr you ahve been using and see if you can do another round of Femara, while you are trying to lose that 20 pounds.
