Dreaming big and crashing down.

Sunday, February 10, 2013

I had a dream last night about me being pregnant. Now one might say, "that sounds like an ordinary dream." I've been wanting to get pregnant for a long time and haven't been able to because of medical conditions. I believe it is a wake up call to take action. I'm 34 years old and I'm afraid that I won't have enough time before I hit menopause. I weigh 335 lbs and I have Poly cystic Ovarian Syndrome. I would love to be able to have children soon but I would also like to lose some weight. My husband weighs over 400. So you can see what we are going through. I just wish I could catch a break and stop this roller coaster ride. I really need some advice and help to get me back on track. Thanks.

    Hi there.. I've read your blog, and I would like to say that you don't have to give up on your dream to get pregnant.
    You just have to take a deep breath and take a look at all you have now, and all the things you want to change.
    It's not an easy road, this of changing habits and getting healthier, but it makes you so proud when you get results, as little as they may seem.
    So my advice to you is to process this "dream crash" like you need to and feel like... But as soon as that feeling is gone... Just get going, and don't stop until you reach your goals and your dreams.

    We are in a similar situation. We weigh about the same (~5# difference) and I also have PCOS and have been struggling to get pregnant again for quite a while. (We are fortunate to have a daughter, but would really love to have at least 1 or 2 more children). I am going on 38, and so I don't have much time left! My husband is also over 300#.
    We just have to keep an eye on the ultimate goal and keep working towards it!

    Work together. I know you can do this. Set some goals and work towards them a little at a time. Set small goals, they are much easier to reach, then when you do, set another one. Hang in there you can do this! :) HUGS!

    Make it a family goal to lose weight together. If both of you are eating healthier and taking small steps to improve your health, then you will be more likely to be able to stop the worsening of the syndrome. From what I have heard, losing weight might help you get pregnant. Good luck to you.

    My daughter dealt with PCOS and she was around 225 pounds. She was 23 years old and (unknown to me) had decided that if she did not get pregnant by the time she was 25, she would have her tubes tied. She had gone to the doctor and he told her that her weight was the major contributing factor to both her PCOS and her not getting pregnant. So she went to work on losing weight and did NOT think about pregnancy as her goal. She let it go. She did lose weight, not a lot but some, and then came home one day and showed me THREE home tests, all of them positive. I now have my super grandson. Make weight loss your health goal, let the other parts come as they will. God will take care of the rest for you. Remember that we as women can have babies a lot later in life than we used to. You have time, concentrate on your health. (Take your hubby with you, he will thank you later...hehe...)
    P.S. I just looked at your page, your are doing great, keep it up!
