Fertility Appointment

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

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!

    Trust me, the waiting part is so darn hard. I gained my weight due to infertility. Sometimes I am still amazed I have children. The idea of not having them is still so ingrained in my mind. Don't lose hope and it has nothing to do with "relaxing'. If I had a dollar for every time someone said that to me! emoticon

    WOW, I know you can meet the challenge.

    SOmetimes just losing a bit of weight and letting go of the
    anxiety to TRY to get pregnant, will result in pregnancy.

    God is Still in Control, so give it some time and relax and just
    enjoy being together.

    Words from someone who has been there, done that ;)

    A friend of a friend decided last summer to stop worrying about it for a few months, bought a boat even and ended up getting pregnant when they weren't trying. So sometimes just giving into submission for awhile ends up making it happen. Good luck!

    I pray that you may get your blessing soon. God works in mysterious ways. I was blessed with my son when I never thought it would be possible. Sometimes he knows better than we do when our time is right. Try to keep your spirits up. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you.
