Exercise and Hormones

I am trying to get (and stay) pregnant. This year so far has been filled with being away from home for half of the year while visiting a fertility clinic and terrible stress as I deal with separation from my family, loss, financial issues, and having my hormones jacked around and around for months on end.

I am trying to get (and stay) pregnant. This year so far has been filled with being away from home for half of the year while visiting a fertility clinic and terrible stress as I deal with separation from my family, loss, financial issues, and having my hormones jacked around and around for months on end. Then there is the added pressure and frustration of the doctor telling me to lose weight, and then pumping me full of hormones that make me bloated, hungry and tired -- all the while having to suspend my normal workout routine with my trainer because I'm either away from home or jetlagged from coming back, or scrambling to arrange to leave again.

Still, I have to do what I have to do. I am recommitting myself to using exercise to help overcome the stress, to becoming physically stronger and to developing healthy eating habits now instead of waiting until I am pregnant.

Hang in there and will keep you in my prayers. It's never easy being away from the family and I wouldn't like it either. How long have you been trying to get pregnant? I know that after my miscarriage it took me close to a year to conceive once again. I feel Sarah is our little miracle and find myself spoiling her rotten alot more than the first two. We will work at our weight loss together and feel better about oursselves. I will keep a check on you and make sure things are going well. Take care.

I stopped by to see how things are going for you. I am dragging my behind since having Sarah and getting really hard to want to exercise once again. Looking for someone to help me there and maybe work together to lose this darn weight. I know you are trying to get pregnant and know how frustrating that can be. I also miscarried one before having Sarah so it's very hard on you mentally and so many days you just want to give up and yes I have been there too after I miscarried but God give me one more miracle so I pray God gives you the same miracle he give me and let me know if you would like to work together.

Hi, Shelly~
Thanks for checking in on me - sorry I never responded. In early April I fell and hurt my back, so I've been out of commission for awhile. But I'm finally feeling better, so I'm going to start getting back on track now.
I hear you're off to the Amazon soon- sounds fun!
Have a great day! ~Vicki
