New Journey Perhaps....

After speaking to the PCOS specialist, it looks like my TTC journey is going to be on hold yet again.  I am going to pursue the Weight Loss Surgery again.  It wasn't just what she said to me but the combination of that visit and the results of my recent blood work. 

I'm scared...I don't want to die.  Yes, I know the chances are slim to none especially since it's come a long way and if you do everything you need to you will be successful, but what if I am the exception?

So yet again TTC on hold, weight loss front of the line.  I hope I can go through with it.

I have more to say, but that's for another day.

I know I already sent you an email, but I wanted to say again that I know it's scary and I'm thinking of you as you make this decision (*hugs*)

I was looking for a contact/email link but can't find it, so I'll post here.

Just a thought, you may have already explored this.

I also have PCOS. I've had issues ever since AF showed up in my teens.

Recently I switched to a grain free/Paleo type way of life. I don't eat grains, sugar, dairy (except heavy cream and a bit of hard raw cheese). Anyway, long story short- I started dropping pounds and my cycles regulated on their own. I conceived right away after dropping 10% body weight, unfortunately that one wasn't a sticky. I don't have a sticky yet, but life has changed a lot in 6 months! The blog that inspired me was PaleoParents. . . Stacy the mom lost something like 135 lbs in a year with this way of eating. AMAZING. You may give it a try while waiting for surgery (won't hurt, right?) or even postpone surgery if you are seeing results! I've found low carb to be the key to PCOS healing! Good luck and feel free to email me.
