We are about to start our first Ivf cycle today. We will be doing icsi.
I am fortunate to have one ds, but second time around I have discovered I have low amh and male motility issues.
Going for my first blood test today. I have a question though. Doc said I need to lose some weight as well. I have lost three and still have six to go. I checked with her yesterday and she said continue the diet,
But I'm having the diet shakes and I'm wondering if that is too extreme for a cycle? Is there any point in weighing yourself during the cycle as well as will I put on weight because of the hormones?
Opinions most gratefully received.

If i were you, i'd discuss the shakes with your FS - if it were me, i'd either continue the shakes and hold off on IVF, or change up the diet so that you're not substituting meals with shakes - our bodies need all the food-nutrients it can have during IVF.
I'm not doctor/nutritionist/anything, so it's just my opinion... i've been on a clean-food style diet, but have cut out dairy, gluten and sugar - i've got no intolerance issues with any (i've been tested for all intolerances) but i'm still getting nutrients from lots of food, along with my supplements.
PS: Awesome work on the weight loss so far

Girls - remember that progesterone rising gives you similar symptoms to AF coming! Don't lose hope because of cramps & sore boozies.
