Starting Fertility Treatments

Hey everybody! It's been a long, long time since I have posted anything, but I wanted to just put an update out there. I was sleeved Dec. 20, 2011, and have lost 54 pounds so far. The doc gave me the green light for getting pregnant a couple weeks ago, and I am doing my first cycle of Clomid. I am so excited! We go to count eggs in 2 days! I have been wanting this for so long now, and I can't believe it's finally happening. DH and I have been wanting a child for over 4 years now. We didn't find out that I had an issue until 2 years ago, and I was diagnosed with PCOS. I am so thrilled to finally be at this point, and hope so much that we can get pregnant right away!

Aw! That's awesome @rodswife! I would so love to have a house full of children someday too! Wednesday is the big day to see how the eggs are looking and I'm praying HARD. I wouldn't say no to twins. We've been waiting and wanting so long that a nice multiple birth would feel like making up for lost time, lol.

It will happen girl. Just keep the faith. My kids are 21, 15, 13, 11, 2 and 1. My younger two are 19 months apart and very much like twins. It gets exhausting but I wouldnt trade it for anything in the world. They keep me young. Ill be praying for you.

I pray, so much, that this works for you. It is not in God's Plan for me to be able to have children, but, I LOVE to hear about other peoples' blessings!

Best wishes to you on a most special journey!! Keep us posted!

They found two eggs! I go back Sat. For the shot to make me ovulate. He warned me that sometimes eggs can just magically disappear though, so we are praying that they are both fully mature and ready to go!

Praying that they stay put and that you ovulate and become pregnant.

Thanks rodswife! I am getting excited- tomorrow morning I will hopefully get the shot! We'll see what things look like. I can't believe I will still have to wait two or three more weeks to know if it worked...

Waiting is the hardest part. A bit of advice a fertility doc told my husband I, start having sex now every other day so there is always a fresh Batch of sperm near the cervix so when the egg releases there is always speem there for it to attach to. Starting now instead of waiting til you ovulate increases your chances because you never know when you will ovulate. Also I used to take 30ml of mucus expectorant where the only active ingredient was guaffenisen daily. It helps thin out your cervical mucus making it more sperm friendly. Told to me by a fertility doc as well. It makes the cervical mucus less hostile so sperm can last longer. And lastly, when you do have sex, when you are done, lay there with your hips propped up for 20min before you even get up to clean up, pee whtever. It helps guide the sperm toward your cervix. Good luck girl. Sprinkling baby dust your way. I know how you feel. keep the faith.

Went back to the dr. this morning. The two eggs that they found Wednesday were missing or had shrunk back down or something, but they found a new one on my other ovary. And, it's a nice, big, happy one too! He gave me the shot to make me ovulate, so now we just wait and see what happens!

      I broke 150 lbs today!!!!
      150 lbs has been my wall for the past 15 years.  I've dieted down to the low 150s 3 times only to regain what I lost and more. 
      I am now officially 149.7 lbs as of this morning.  Yay me!

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.
