@MissGreen:I am so sorry. You are handling this difficult situation with such grace. We are here to support you and be excited for you all the way.

Weigh-in Check-in: I refuse to post my weight on line (it’s that bad). We can start on Monday. My plan is to go as close to no-carb as possible. How do you girls think we should do this? Do you think we could post some of our favorite diet receipes as we come across them because I am always struggling with what to make?

So I had another ultrasound this morning and my follies only grew 2mm. Not the progress they wanted to see. So my Follistim dosage is being increased and I will go back on Tuesday. I’m really hoping the increase helps, it sucks going in and being told you aren’t progressing like you should be. Hopefully I will have a better update on Tuesday…

@waitingbee: I really don’t want to post my weight either, I’m horrified! Recipes would be good. I think I might even buy some slimfast, that way I won’t pig out on meals like I normally do! I worked out today, that kicked my butt!!!!

@sweetkate: I’m sorry they didn’t grow as much as you were hoping. I hope the increase in meds helps and that they are perfect size on Tuesday!!!

I think we need a new thread, I keep losing posts….

@sweetkate: I’m sorry they didn’t grow like they should have. Maybe they are just waiting to surprise you on Tuesday. Good luck

I started excercising again today. First time since I was pregnant. I really feel that getting out an excercising again will give me a better shot at getting pregnant again, plus I really need to get healty – its getting ridiculous. So excited for the weigh-in here. Today we are going to bbq and make corn on the cob and fruit – official day 1 of the diet.

@waitingbee: I’m hoping that if I loose some weight, it might help us too.

I’m just having some coffee for breakfast, going to go to the store today and get some healthy stuff to eat! I was reading online about little things to do to cut calories, so I thought I would share some of the tips with you! Instead of mayo, use guacamole (plus, avacodos are supposed to help your reproductive organs, so double score!), and instead of cream cheese, use ricotta cheese. I guess it is really good on bagels and stuff, so I am going to try it, can’t hurt right?!

Hey ladies; Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for all your kind words. We are feeling a lot more better today. I will admit I am a little nervous telling our family (his parents and my sister) that we are moving forward today. I think I feel that way bc then the flood gates will open and while people do need to know our plans, I am scared at the reaction of the rest of DH family. They are just a little on the conservative and too traditional side on certain things if you ask me. One thing we are considering is possibly in about 6 months or so, going to another RE for a second opionon on both our diagnosis. Just want to see it from another perspective and if they feel we can only do IUI/IVF then we will not continue. I am not sure though, I am going to meet with my OBGYN in the coming weeks to talk to her. I wouldn’t mind taking the meds again but no more procedures and I really want to avoid surgery if possible. We will weigh our options out in the coming months.

I vow to not eat fast food for a whole 30 days and only allow myself a cheat day on the weekend. Our biggest issue with weight right now is we turn to fast food at least 3-4 times a week and its become such an issue. Prewedding and for many years, I would only eat it once a week if that at all. I stopped buying pop even diet bc it is the devil in our house. Once I do this and start running again and I will whip out the 30 day shred, I am hoping this gives me some motivation to get back to working out and eating right the way I use to always do it. I am going full force with this as I need something else now to occupy my mind these days!

@MissGreen: good luck!!!  and I hope you DH’s family takes the news in stride and doesn’t give you hell for it.  You’ve been through so much already, you really don’t need that, too.

Sooooo…. I FINALLY got the home-made potato chips I’ve been wanting today! YAY!  erm…except the grease also jumped out and got me on the leg.  I’m currently trying to freeze the pain away with an ice pack, lol. 

….and…I’m also leaning towards “I am” this month and so is my FI!  it’s gonna take ALL my willpower to NOT buy a test before friday!

@MissGreen: Good luck telling your family today. It sounds like you have a great list of options to pursue.

Anyone heard from Jen? I hope she is doing ok.
