I went for a check-in type appointment with my fertility doctor today. Though I realized as I was leaving that we could have discussed everything over the phone and I didn't really need to drive 1 hr 45 min round trip for a twenty minute conversation. I just completed six months of pills in an attempt to get preggers, obviously none of them worked or this would be a really different blog. So today we talked about where to go from here. Basically he told me that I should take the summer off from tracking, temping, charting, etc. Which is somewhat frustrating since we have been trying for two years come August. To take off three months of actively trying is a little discouraging. Though I do have something to work on in the coming months. The second part of our discussion centered around my weight, and how losing 10% of my body weight may resolve some of the issues I have with my cycle, specifically my screwed up pituitary gland that isn't sending the right hormones. My DH likes to remind me that people were right and it is all in my head, isn't he just too funny? So, it's a good thing that my DH and me have already started a 90 day challenge which has resulted in an almost 5 lb loss for me in the first two weeks. I am anxious to get back on the scale and see what this week is going to be like so maybe I can achieve the 10% sooner than three months. Here's hoping and praying and working my butt off to achieve my goals!
I hope he visits me soon :)
