The Bump Baby Registry
Now is the perfect time to start your Baby Registry!START A REGISTRY
So I made an apt with an RE, it's three weeks from now. I am overweight, but I have lost about 35-40 lbs since January (thank you Metformin). I guess I am having this thought running through my head that the RE is just going to say, lose 50 lbs and then we will talk about treatment. I was diagnosed with PCOS in Feb of 2013 and my cycles have evened out quite a bit just with Metformin. My question is, if you are overweight, have you had any trouble with an RE refusing treatment?
Re: Plus Size and TTC
My first RE was terrible. He had me in tears almost every visit about being overweight and TTC. We left there and my new RE (who I wanted to see in the first place but due to insurance reasons) reassured me that my weight wouldn't be a concern.
Good luck. I know it is such a sensitive subject.
Although I agree that a healthy weight is ideal for conception don't let some stupid doctor give you too much flack about it. I know several real life friends who are not a healthy weight and eat crap and they have 2 or 3 kids each.
Congrats on the weight loss!
Oh and I agree with wife07mom09 PCOS (although that isn't my Diagnosis) won't do your weight management any favors. Also I know someone who gained a fair amount FROM feriltiy drugs.
Anyway- best of luck to you
