early new years resolution

Well we had our appointment today with the RE. It went really well. The doctor was a very nice jewish man. He welcomed us both and answered all of questions. He was very through. He made us feel comfortable. The bad news is that I have to lose 30 pounds before we can start the Ivf stuff. Thats ok because I really need to lose weight in order to be healthier and to have less chances of a complicated pregnancy. The 30 pound goal is very attainable and hopefully it will get my ass into the weight loss mode I need to be into. J said that we would do this together which will help a lot because its hard when the people you live with are not on the same page. So once I lose the 30 pounds we start all the pre testing stuff thats required for Ivf and do another clomid challenge test to see where my Fsh level is. Oh the other good news is that my new insurance will still approve Ivf as long as my Fsh level is 15 or below and not the 10 I thought. I am going to make an appointment with a nutritionist and get started dieting and excercising. I also want to join either weight watchers or OA for support.


  1. Best wishes--- I've done Weight Watchers in the past and it really does work!!

  2. Hi! just found your blog and was reading up on some of your recent posts. I was wondering why you have to lose weight before starting IVF? We did IVF ourselves and I was easily 50 pounds overweight. Nobody batted an eye. Anyway, just wondering. Good luck with your cycle!
