The low and short of it is she wants me to get my weight down, 10kgs. She thinks that's likely the problem.
She sent me for loads of bloods, and while I was at it I paid $385 smackeroos for genetic carrier screening. Might as well get it out of the way!
She thinks I'm ovulating. She's not sure about PCOS. She thinks endometriosis is unlikely. She said if we get pregnant between now and seeing her in a couple months, she could be our ob (!!!)
... In some ways, it felt like we were almost wasting her time. She rushed through at a million miles and basically said there's not much she can see is a problem.
Anyways, learnt lots, will add it to my TTC diary so feel welcome to read that (when I get around to it!).
Thanks for following along and checking in!! I need it!! Xx
May I be rude now and ask how much you weigh? Only because I need to lose weight too and am wondering if this is slowing us down? Please don't feel you have to answer. I suspect my stress/anxiety levels aren't helping more than the weight!
Congrats to all our positives!
I'm out this month after a stupid 26 day cycle.
She also said that she can only help women who have a BMI under 35, as there's only a 50% chance of meds working & increased likelihood of requiring a C-section, if over that. So as long as you're a healthy BMI (25?), or aim to be!
Disclaimer: don't quote me, it was information overload!!! But you know, -ish!
I was heavy with my son, and ended up with a c-section, but I was induced and strapped to a bed, so I blame that lol
I am overweight too and actively loosing it. So far I'm down 17kg since January and just over 20kg lighter from when I fell pregnant with ds. I am wanting to drop about another 10/15kg I will still be in that overweight category but I know I will feel better. I've lost over 150cm from my body too, 3 dress sizes and have heaps more energy-mostly.
Do give up ladies, just look at the big picture, my aim is to continue my lifestyle program once pregnant just not in a weight loss capacity but to ensure I'm eating healthy and getting the nutrients I need. I'm not saying all this to be preachy but it can be done! Mostly my only exercise is incidental stuff and chasing mr almost 3.
I was induced with ds and there was no talk of c-sections thankfully though I did have to deliver at a specialist women's hospital as my bmi was too high.
