My First ICLW!

Welcome ICLWers!

I've only recently started blogging, though I've been a lurker for several months. My history isn't terribly long. We ditched the birth control over 3 years ago, and had our first RE visit in June of 2010. After fairly normal test results and a PCOS diagnosis, we had three IUIs that failed. I felt as if I was spinning my wheels trying to get pregnant while carrying around all of this extra weight that was obviously impeding my natural body functions, so I approached my RE with the idea of weight loss surgery.

Currently I'm about 3 or 4 months from surgery, and documenting the steps of this process. I'm hoping to provide some insight, down the road, for other women that are curious about fertility after weight loss surgery.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Best wishes to you in your weight loss/baby making endeavors! You may very well become the go to person in the bloggy world for babies after WLS. Have a great first ICLW week, too!


  2. Wishing you the very best of luck with this whole endeavor.

    My husband was diagnosed with sleep apnea years ago and getting treated for that made such a huge difference in his health. I hope it helps you too.
