I'm not the most dedicated or knowledgeable blogger out there, so I don't have a nifty "about me" page or anything like that. I'm Jamie, I'm 31, married to my best friend JP (37, no male factor). Last year we went through 3 failed IUIs which came after approximately 4 years of no BC, and no periods. While my RE never attributed my troubles to my weight, I'm a smart enough girl to know that it, and my PCOS, are the source of my problems. In February I went for my initial consultation at the Bariatric Center and began changing my habits, and on July 20th of this year I had RNY Gastric Bypass surgery. In total I have lost 106 pounds, but I still have many more to go. My cycle still has not made an appearance, which scares the crap out of me.
Wow, talk about a TMI introduction! We're all used to that by now, right?
It is advised that I wait 12 to 18 months after surgery to start trying again, which is what I plan to do (as if I might have any other choice). Then I suspect it will be back to the RE. In the meantime I try to concentrate on continuing to be as healthy as I can be.
I know a lot of people are curious about the surgery, my diet, and many other things that I can't think of at the moment. Feel free to ask me questions! I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs!
