Hey hope you ladies don't mind if I join a little late?
I'm 30 and ttc our second. Our ds will be 2 in July. We will be celebrating our 11th anniversary next month.
I have pcos and very bad insulin resistance and I have been told I will be full blown type 2 diabetic if I don't make a change soon. So I try to ear a lower carb by sticking under 100 g and ideally 50 g a day. I did really well in March and went from 227 to 217. I am currently floating around 219.
We have been ntnp/ttc since Nov 2014. I don't ovulate often on my own so I take clomid. I did a round in January that resulted in a chemical pregnancy. Due to the emotional stress I decided to wait until May. However, the day I was meant to start clomid my dh got some bad news from work so we aren't using anything but not preventing either.
Right now I'm on lydia pinkham and metformin. I need desperately to get back to a low carb/real food diet to lose weight, possible o on my own and get my blood sugar all in line for a healthy pregnancy.
So I have two weeks left in this school year before summer break. I am hoping to make it through them eating right and really focusing on it during the summer. And if dh gets his hours back at work come July I'd like to start clomid again. At the very latest I'd like to start in September.
Alli so sorry to hear about your sleeping angel Working at home will be amazing for the next two though!
Hey Krissie!! I would comment on your "novel" (it wasn't really that long haha) but I think I knew most of that already
Have you guys ever had the doc tell you that you need to lose weight? That seems silly when I type it haha but basically I am worried that when I go in next week that they might not run all the diagnostic tests right away and just tell me that I need to lose weight...
I have seen one fertility specialist who was great and did my dx of pcos. He offered me clomid back in 2008. But I declined due to relationship issues.
In 2012 I saw a nasty doctor who told me to lose weight, take blood pressure meds and get dh checked before coming back. I have no history of high blood pressure but she took it while I was crying because she refused to help me. We did get dh checked and his motility was on the lower end and she said we had no chance without iui.
So another year later I saw a new doctor and got clomid. She was fabulous and I miss her. My new doctor is pretty good too though. He prescribed clomid based on my history and ff charts.
Edit to add: we got pregnant first cycle of clomid with ds dtd all natural.
Hi Krissie! Welcome! The more the merrier! More support and motivation! I am doing the low carb/real food and it is working great for me so far! Just started this week and already have so much more energy! You can do it!
Has the Dr ever told me to lose weight? Haha of course!!! They are also quite surprised when I am healthy as a horse too lol. Apparently fat people can't be healthy lol..
I am excited to weigh in tomorrow! Krissie are you going to upload a before pic? If you just want to use tomorrow as your starting weight that is fine too!
Lol right! Of course they are going to tell us to lose weight I think I am just getting nervous. My doctor is super nice though and in unrelated appointments she checks in with me to make sure I'm ovulating and has checked thyroid just to make sure so I think she will be more than willing to get the ball rolling.
Krissie thats a bummer that you got a nasty doc, that must have been so frustrating.
I'm excited for your weigh in too, you have been doing great!
My meals for last week were chicken breasts that I cooked in the crock pot with hot sauce, some days I ate it on celery as a snack and one day I used a little more and made a wrap out of it. Another meal I and was brown rice, ground turkey, and peas all mixed together. I also did wraps with ham, turkey, and spinach. What kind of stuff do you like? Those are just what I have on the top of my head since that's what I recently did haha.
