Hey PrayingforUs, congrats to you on a job well done with the weight loss! I sympathize with the subsequent weight gain after struggling with IF for a while... I can certainly relate. Sounds like you've managed to get it back under control and you've got a good attitude about managing it going forward. I find that if I can be consistent with my good eating habits and exercise, then at least I feel physically better about myself when the IF treatments fail.

I went on Southbeach in early Aug and in two months lost 20 of the 30 lbs I gained since my wedding. That occurred right before a fresh IVF attempt. Since I felt so good weight-wise/health-wise during my E/R, I think it helped me understand better whether my bloating and abdominal discomfort was diet related or OHSS related. I felt like I had better control. Right after I did my frozen transfer in early December, I started to eat whatever my heart desired (I love junk food:)) and significantly decreased my exercising. Well, just a few weeks later and I gained back 10lbs! So I started back on Phase One of southbeach today. Hoping I can be as good as I was the first time I tried this diet.

I just started drinking caffeine free green tea. For months now I've done acupuncture (which I think only helps me with relaxation), and I take prenatals, daily vitamins, and Pro-DHA which is a fish oil supplement designed for fertility. Hoping all this helps!

Sending each of you loads of baby dust!!!!!!!!!!!
