PCOS pregnancy success story.



Recommended Posts

I wanted to add a short update! I had my IUD removed in March, and just yesterday got a positive test (and had blood test confirmation today). I'm currently 4 weeks pregnant. I bawled, huge, gasping-for-breath sobs, for ten minutes when I found out. We tried for so long for my daughter, and, after losing 122lbs, I got pregnant so quickly! I hope this little one sticks!

Thank you to everyone who shared their stories. My husband and I have been TTC for 3 years and 1 month. I had a tubal reversal in March 2008 shortly after our wedding. I was banded on Dec 21, 2010 and have since lost 55 pounds. Great accomplishment for 5 1/2 months! Weight loss has almost stopped over the past month though. I started at 323 lbs and my fertility doctor will not proceed with IUI or IVF until my weight at least 230, so that's another 35 lbs before fertility treatments begin. If I continued with 10 lbs a month that should bring me to OCT/NOV. Gosh I hope so. See, I'll be 40 in September and I have 2 adult children and a grandson. My husband has no biological children and we desire a family so bad. My biological clock has almost ran out. We have 2 years and 3 months before we are no longer eligible for IUI or IVF in Florida. That's pretty much the cut off date. So, it's crunch time. Time to get very serious about this weight loss, excercise and getting my overweight body ready for a pregnancy. Pray for me and send me all the baby dust you can, LOL. Thanks again for sharing and keep me posted everyone!!

I, unfortunately, ended up miscarrying 2 weeks ago, when I was 10 weeks pregnant. My body wasn't miscarrying by itself (though the baby had died), so I had to have a D&C. Hoping to start TTC soon. My dr said there was no "waiting period" after a miscarriage, just when my body was ready and I was emotionally ready. I'm hoping that getting pregnant that quickly wasn't just a fluke and we can get pregnant again!

Hi everyone. I am surely a PCOS success story. I conceived my 2 daughters suing clomid due to PCOS. I was banded in Dec. 2010, and just found out that I am 2 months pregnant and I wasn't even trying. It just happened!!! I didn't even lose much weigh since getting banded but I can tell that my body has chanded some. So, keep trying ladies!

I love hearing these stories! I lived with PCOS for many years, and just found out a few months ago that I am PCOS free! No symptoms whatsoever! :) I just got married, and my husband and I are soon ready to start trying. Even though I don't have PCOS anymore, I'm still worried that there was enough damage done during my PCOS years. My doctor doesn't think I will have a problem, but I still worry. These stories give me hope! :)

I started the process a few months ago, and I am planning to have Lap Band in November. I am 215 lbs and I feel confident (after 7 years of ttc) that after I lose the weight, I WILL get pregnant. PCOS will NOT steal my dreams any longer! I just joined this forum tonight after trying to look for other women who are going through what I am. It gets discouraging when everyone around you gets pregnant at the drop of the hat, and you are trying for YEARS without success. Us ladies just need to support one another in this journey. Best of luck to you, girl, and God bless!

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
