Infertility

NIFR: but it may be a little

So like most people (I hope) who have been going through this process and all the wacky crap we are putting our bodies through.... I gained weight (20+lbs). So needless to say I rarely weigh myself anymore.

But..... Since I haven't been able to keep much down since going back on oral estrace (tossing my cookies has become a sport ;) ), I decided to get my happy ass up onto that scale to see if I had lost any weight. Low and behold..,. Hot damn I lost 30 lbs!!! Wait, what? So naturally I questioned this sudden weight drop since last month... Duh who drops weight that fast at any age let alone 37; but of course I had to check again (mind you it hasn't crossed my mind at this point that my clothes aren't fitting differently...silly me). WTH? It says the same thing!! (Now it's starting to sink in that this can't be right because my clothes aren't fitting differently). I decide in my infinite wisdom that something must be wrong with the scale...........

So I check it.... :/

A tiny little corner was on top of the rug...... Hmmm that must be the culprit. But I'm thinking the whole time it can't be off that much so maybe I have lost some weight..... Dun dun duuunnn!! I did. 1.5lbs.

Man that just sucked. And I am an idiot when estrogen is coursing through my body. Thanks for the knife in my heart IF.

  • 1.5 lb is progress! Well, I see it that way. I've put off upsizing my pants for longer than I probably should; I keep telling myself that the next cycle will be IT and I'll be pregnant and would need some new pants at that point.

    IF just laughed at me.

  • LOL - I also would have not questioned the scale - especially if it said that twice.  Although probably best you did otherwise the next time you tried a few days/week later you would be think WTF - how did I gain back that much weight so fast!

    This is why there are no scales in my house. :)

    The last time I was weighed was my first intralipid infusion.  The number hurt a little, but was not a complete shock since I have moved up a few pants sizes.  The worst part was that the dumb nurse that was monitoring my infusion kept telling me how tiny I was.  I wanted to tell her that my weight would be tiny on a 5'10'' person, but I am only 5'2'' so it puts me solidly in the overweight range.

    ETA: 1.5 lbs is a good start although the method might not be the healthiest. :) I hope you feel better soon.

    April 2015: FET #2.1


    PAIF/SAIF Welcome!

  • Your post made me laugh - that is something I would totally do, right down to the personal dialogue that you were having.  Congrats on the 1.5 lbs!!

    I don't have a scale because I'm obsessed with numbers and if it's not a certain number (and it hasn't been for over a year now) - I go nutsto.  Now I just go by how my pants fit.  And - of course - if they don't fit right I just assume that the dryer shrank 'em.  ;)

    I would have also except that I got weighed at my primary doc last month and my silly DH decided he was going to get a scale so he could watch his weight.... Mind you he isn't putting on weight
