Sugar and Dye

..and everything nice right? Since my last post I've had two doctors appointments and a procedure. 

I saw the fertility doctor on May 20th. It was then I had some reservations about my doctor.  Anyone who has had weight issues {their entire life} will know what I was told is not healthy. I am being sent to a weight management clinic {which I am excited about!!} to learn what my body needs and to get some help! I am super excited about this. However the bit of shocking news I received is my fertility dr wants me to loose 61 pounds. No problem right? Oh! In ***3*** months??? 

I've really had to take a step back emotionally from this and think about this process diplomatically. I want nothing more than to have a healthy pregnancy to have a healthy baby. I'm not so sure I care to stress my body out so much. It was then I decided to make long term health changes. Cutting out sugar and carbs, exercising daily, and making overall a long term goal, not 3 months, because I want to keep the weight off if I'm going to loose it. Not drastically cut it out to gain it back 3 months following.

Yesterday I had my HSG procedure. I've been on 48 hours of bedrest as the dye went somewhere it wasn't supposed to, and the findings found my left tube to be pristine and the right tube to be abnormal and blocked.  

This morning I received my hormone blood tests back which all came back normal so overall everything is looking really good.  The dr is set to review the HSG findings and get back to me by Friday. 

I think this process has been nothing but positive, in the sense that I have been able to find out what's going on with me to make me want to sleep all the time and to feel wiped out.  Making little changes has lead to big changes and I can feel a huge difference.  More than anything I have learned to follow my heart, and while this process is different for everyone, I have to follow my heart and listen to Gods direction, which ultimately may not be in the drs timing or ours for that matter.  Prayer has done our heart wonders and has lead our souls through storms we never knew we could weather.

Hope you are having a great week!
