I tried soy for 2 cycles and it did absolutely nothing for me. FX it works for you MaybeBaby1013! I've heard so many positive things about it. I might have just been one of the unlucky ones with soy.

Hey everyone!

I am quite overweight and ttc but have not been trying every month been just seeing what happens...

I have mild pcos as well and got told I have a cyst on my right side but it is small and losing weight will help me (easier said than done!!)

My cycles are pretty irregular and this month is one of the worst at the moment! Spotted and bled for 9 days and when I finished I felt like I was due to come on again, bloated, cramping etc!

Now I am on cycle day 16 and still don't feel right and to make matters painful I keep getting told by friends their pregnant when they haven't even tried and I am like.."Huh!?"

Thank you. It sucks, but we are okay. Every day is a little better (well most!). It's been a lot of hard work losing the weight, but it is so worth it. It feels like I'm doing SOMETHING while all I can do is wait if that makes sense.

I don't think you necessarily have to stop to lose weight. My doctor told me I could continue to lose weight while I was pregnant if I wanted to. I wasn't comfortable with it so I didn't, but she Is an amazing doctor and wouldn't let me do anything unsafe. We are still trying while I'm eating healthy trying to lose weight. Lots of times, a small loss of just 5-10% of your body weight triggers ovulation. I don't want to miss my chance any time, so we are going for it all the time Hubby is very positive and optimistic that it will happen for us because it happened once. I'm sure he is right, but I hope he is right SOON! Low carb seems to work well for me. I aim for 100-130 grams/day. And I count calories. I use an app on my phone called "Lose It". It's great. I used it last time, too.

I think you're right about the 5-10% of body weight reduction being a real help. 35 lbs for me was 10% of my body weight and it was around 30lbs lost that I started spotting for a whole week in April, then got my period back completely and the last three periods have been 35 days apart as I've kept losing. I just hope you're right about the ovulation. I haven't been able to get a positive OPK yet. I only test twice per day though.

traylee01- I SO know what you mean. I am going to a wedding in a week and I am not looking forward to the photos. The outfit I am wearing isn't the mist slimming

I use myfitnesspal.com for my calorie counting. I love it and I love the community there. I have a lot of buddies on there that help keep me on track.
