My very first post about fertility. So as I’ve wrote about a fair few things I’m going to reintroduce myself. I’m on an incredible journey and I thought, you know what, why not share this with the world, well the select few who will read this anyway.
As stated above I’m 27 and from the UK, however I wish that said USA I’m completely in love with America but that’s a whole new story. I’m from a little village, it’s beautiful, I live in a cottage, how cliché but true. I have a partner of 7 years and two cats, Nova & Lilo.
We are so ready to be parents, however I have something called PCOS; that again is another story. If you want to know more right now then take a look at this.
My main reason for posting is because I recently purchased some fertility testers and today was day three for the dreaded monthly, yep good old Mother Nature. This is the test below, in person there was a very faint line. The camera didn’t pic it up. But it basically means there is nothing wrong. I don’t have high FHS levels at all. Which put my mind at rest. From here I’m now going to be taking a ovulation test everyday until I’m ovulating and keep doing right up until my next period. Where I will jot everything down. I want to get a feel for my own body and when I’m ovulating. Last time I just tested on the recommended days but it never worked. So let’s see if this does. I’ll be keeping you guys updated on a weekly basis every Sunday. So please keep checking in.
Goals for April. Maybe I’m being very optimistic but I’d like to lose a stone. Right? Who wouldn’t. I think the real question here is; would it be possible? Am I jumping the gun and thinking this is healthy? Is there even a healthy way to lose that much weight? So many unanswered questions. You know what I think, let’s just flipping try shall we? April is that step close to summer, a step closer to that bikini body we all dream of yet that’s still about SIX STONE, yes six whole stone away from that. How will I even know if I’ll like my body or even have the body confidence to strut my stuff.
One of my main reason for losing weight isn’t that bikini body, that would be nice. However I’m just losing weight to have an even bigger belly, yep you got it. A big pregnant belly.
I have 124 days to get to lose 4-5 stone! Now that’s the real question. Can I do that. You see I can’t have a child naturally and need to go down the IVF route.
One of my main goals in life is to become a mother. But my main goal is so far out of reach, I have PCOS, polycystic ovarian syndrome. I’ll do a post in more detail about that at a later date.
Watching all these status’s on Facebook from people who I went to school with showing the things there children have gotten them and the things they have done today is extremely bittersweet. My main aim is to become a mother and in doing this I have to be 100% healthy, not only for myself but for my child as well. I’d never want to bring a child into the world when I am this overweight and another main issue, I have to do it via IVF and for this to happen I have to be at a very very lower weight that what I am at now.
Since joining the gym for this reason I’ve also found a new love for the gym and exercising, to become the best I can ever be and after I become a mother I will continue to go to the gym and get healthy to give an example to my child.
By this time next year I want that card from my bump, and in two years to have so many amazing adventures with my family.
