Let's Get This Show on the Road!

I finally received a message back from my RE.  Here is what she said:

Hi Amber,

I know that the past couple months have been hard on you emotionally. Although weight/BMI does impact implantation and pregnancy potential in IVF cycles, a 14lb wt gain is unlikely to significantly affect your chance for pregnancy especially knowing that your uterus has achieved pregnancies in the past. I'll forward this to Jill for a possible map-out if you wish to move forward w/ the FET.

Knowing that Dr. Wu is comfortable moving forward, in addition to most of you saying pretty much the identical thing, we are going forth!  I am just waiting for my phone call from the nurse to go over our plan.  I assume I will be starting bcp's tomorrow, which I conveniently have on hand already :)

Now, time to kick my butt into gear and start eating right and hitting the pavement for my 10k!  Nothing like a little motivation to get you going.

  3. I'm a little overweight and that didn't stop my body from getting pregnant with my IVF cycle. A few pounds shouldn't make a HUGE difference.

    Glad that you are getting things moving again! :-)

  4. wonderful and i totally agree with the doc!!! i am overweight and no one has ever advised me it would affect my chances. i know many people, including a close friend, who is morbidly obese who got preg the first time she tried. it is just us infertiles that worry about everything

  7. I was only advised to lose weight for the ER since the anesthesiologist had a BMI limit, but my SIL was overweight and the RE didn't even mention it and we had success! :) Can't wait to hear your cycle updates, it's going to go awesomely, I just know it! FX'd for you and sending all the positive vibes in the world your way! Woohoo, let's get this FET party started!! :)
