I also have PCOS. I am currently 250 pounds for the first time in my life and that scares the hell out of me. The only thing I want to do is become a mother and we're having such a hard time. I haven't started any medications yet because I am trying to lose weight first--I want to have a healthy body to house a baby in, first, and because I know my pragmatic doctor is going to want me to really try to lose weight before he'll put me on fertility meds anyway.
This is my main motivation. I'm trying the Slow Carb Diet at the moment and I think it's really going to be helpful as long as I stick to it. I was really hoping to be pregnant by the end of the year but I don't think it's going to happen for a while at this rate. I know I'm supposed to be enjoying my time with my husband but I just want to have a baby now. :(

I'm in the same boat as you with the PCOS and TTC. I've been trying for 8 months, but during that time, despite my efforts, I've been gaining weight! :( Now I'm up to almost 180. I know I do better with a lower carb diet, so I really need to focus on that again, bleh. Best of luck to you!
