Hi Natty,

I DEFINITELY gained weight due to infertility treatments. Before IF, I used to go to the gym 3 or 4 times a week & work out pretty hard each session. I also tried to watch what I ate to a reasonable degree. But w/ IF, we are told not to overdo it & to take it really easy during the 2ww. Then there are the lovely meds that make us feel bloated & also crave the wrong types of food. The weight just seemed to pile on. I wish I had some advice for you, but I haven't found the solution for myself yet. ;) All the stress & strain of IF caused me to eat more & now I can't seem to stop. I just got pregnant from our recent IVF cycle, I'm only 8 weeks along, and I'm already outgrowing my clothes (not w/ a preggo belly though! ;)). Even though my dr told me I could start walking again, I'm afraid to overdo it & often too tired to do much after work anyway. I'm really out of shape! One thing's for sure though, it will all be worth it the first time I see my little one's face. Remember the goal & try your hardest to eat healthy & stay somewhat active. You probably have more willpower than me & will do better keeping the weight off now that you are conscious about it.

Wishing you the best. :)
