  • POUNDS: 185, putting me in the obese category
  • MONTHS TRIED: 0. A couple of NTNP with pulling out sometimes around ovulation (real reliable lol). I have PCOS and we kinda played with fire, assuming I’d need fertility treatments. We’d planned to start TTC August 2014, so had a preconception visit to work out the “plan” including what meds/treatments/weight loss etc. That was January 2nd. Turned out I was pregnant at the time!
  • Were you taking birth control right before trying to concieve? Nope
  • Anything you did different the month you conceived? No, but my cycle was off, so we concieved on cycle day 6!

I stopped BC in July, so I guess we started TTC in August.   We started seriously trying in October, got pregnant the first cycle but m/c in December.   First cycle after m/c I got pregnant again and am now 13 weeks, I’m 32 years  old. 5’4″, just under 100 lbs (well, just over 100 now, lol).   It took 6 months to get a sticky baby.

I feel like weight is meaningless without height!! A 200lb 5′ woman is very different from a 200lb 6 woman!

I went off birth control the first month we tried. I had been on it for 11+ years and my first cycle was long, 39 days.  I was using OPK and I didn’t ovulate until day 28.  The second cycle I ovulate on day 26 and we conceived.

Months tried: 4

BC:  Actually stopped BC 8 months ago since I have PCOS and didn’t know what my cycles would do.

We weren’t exactly ‘trying’ but we were not preventing.  I ovulated for the first time in 3 months- 2 weeks after my endocrinologist put me on a thyroid supplement.  Coincidence?? Dunno.
