    Jcee: Hearing that news sucked big time. I hate that this has to be sooo hard for some of us. There's no other words to say in that it just absolutely sucks. Take time to be sad, then pick your head up and keep moving forward. You will get there, I know. Big hugs.

    Jcee: How many eggs did you end up ovulating? 1 or 2? I last read where you were wondering how many to do as you've typically only done one. xoxo

    Sorry in advance for the monster long post.

    Priscilla - Thanks for those words. Its nice to know that someone else felt the same way I do, but was able to get through it, do what needed to be done and be so close to a BFP. I think one of the problems for me right now is that I don't want a baby RIGHT NOW, but in 3ish months we would be ready, probably 6 months would be the perfect time. So I'm not feeling like I need to gain right now - but I know from what you all have said that it takes time once you have gained for your body to respond, so I probably do need to start now (??). I admit it has been nice not to feel like I need to arrange my life and figure out when in the day I can get to the gym. We are FB friends - and I really appreciate your support. I need all the help I can get right now.

    Fit - Thanks for the yelling. I'm serious - I need someone to just tell me straight up. My family and DH are so used to me blowing them off and making up excuses, they really have stopped trying (and I don't blame them). I really relate to what you said "I loved being comfortable and numb". I love that about running - whatever is going on I can just run and shut my brain off and just be numb for a while. How did you finally stop? What did you do to fill the time?
    I also really related to "I also thought that as soon as I gained some weight my body would snap back and do what it needed to do to conceive." Like I said to P, I feel like since I don't want to be pregnant right now that I don't have to gain right now. Or at least gain any more than I already have.
    I really don't know if I have it in me to beat this - to "choose to do something you've never done.......be uncomfortable".
    You are so brave - I really am so impressed with your story and thank you for sharing. I know that with all the hard changes you've made you WILL get that baby. Did your IBS really go away? Did you just stop feeling sick after eating your trigger foods? How long did that take?
    I know lots of women who have conceived and carried the baby to term in their mid 40s - you WILL be able to.
    Just to put it in perspective, during one of my rotations there was a woman who kept bouncing back to the high risk OB as an inpatient - she was 51 and pregnant with twins (through IVF), carried the babies to 34 weeks, and all three are perfectly healthy today. If she can do it, it will be no problem for your body.

    Nico - yea, I'm half @ssing it. I know I am. Thank you for that link - the women on this forum and in those posts are so strong and brave. I really want to believe everything you and they are saying. I agree with newgirl - you really need to write that book! You've helped so many on here already but I know there are so many more.

    JCee - I have often thought about talking with someone about this, but I think because of my work situation it would be hard to find someone without having more people than I would like know about it. And you're right - it really is about me and just making the decision to change. No amount of talking will change anything if I don't just do it.
    I'm so sorry for the BFN. But you sound like you're in such a positive place, it really can't be long!

    Happybaker - although I wouldn't wish this on anyone, it is nice to have someone going through this at the same time. It sounds like you're in a really good state of mind. Its great that your DH is so supportive of you changing. Mine is supportive, but he's pretty laid back, not really worried about me, or he probably just feels like he's said it enough times that he's fed up. I don't know. He just says "it will work out".

    Malie - yes, please yell at me. Seriously. I need it. Thank you. How much did you gain and how long did it take? And how long have you been at your current BMI?

    Tara - Thank you so much for that post. I completely understand what you're saying "My usually goofy outgoing personality was hidden by the all consuming voice in the back of my head telling me I wasn't good enough, I was fat, I was stupid, all I had was being skinny." I feel like I can "pretend" and be that outgoing person once in a while, but when the party or whatever is over and I get home that voice is so loud. I would love to be that person all the time, maybe I can get there?

    Andra - thank you so much for sharing your story. Honestly, I've known I need to gain for a long time now, well since Feb when I went off BCP. But over thanksgiving I was feeling nauseated and my mom was like "you're pregnant!". I went a whole day before I tested, and even though now's not the perfect timing, I was really happy at the thought. Then I took a test and BFN. I mean, honestly there's no way it would have been anything else, but I still hoped. Thats when it first hit me that my body couldn't get pregnant the way it was now. But I don't think it was enough to push me over that - it wasn't my "rock bottom", I fee like I need to go lower before I'll have that "epiphany".
    I agree 200% with everything you said about "jr high". That was me. For sure. At this weight I'm finally at least somewhat ok with how I look, I'm proud of the work and self control it has taken to get here. I'm proud to see that look, or when someone says "you're so tiny", or "I couldn't fit into that but you could". I DO feel like I'm losing part of my identity. But then I think, really how shallow and fragile am I if I'm basing my worth as a person on my waist size? I know intellectually I'm more than that, but I don't believe it...yet....(hopefully?).
    Thinking of you in your 2ww!

    Newgirl - you rock. Thats all I can say. I am so so thankful to have you to talk to. If (when?) i kick this, it will be because of all the girls here, but in LARGE part due to your support. One week left to showtime - and I know that even if this time doesn't work out (but it might!), your BFP is close.

    AFM - Thank you, thank you to everyone. And thank you for making this a place to get out these feelings and thoughts and get some feedback. It is so comforting to hear stories of people who have felt the same, but have been able to overcome.
    Yesterday was not a good day but with your responses I was feeling better this AM.
    Sorry for the monster post but have to get this out too:
    Nico was saying and gave some good data to support that HA is somewhat genetic. Well, even if HA itself isn't, the mentality is. My aunts have struggled with EDs their whole lives, and even if not overtly bingeing or restricting, there has always been a wacky relationship with food, and each other (including my mom). It always felt like a competition between them for who was most successful - with jobs, kids, and weight especially. So when I got old enough to realize what was going on, I feel like I adopted that same mentality - success = school/work + being skinny while you do it. And they'll say "oh aunt X looks too skinny, she's sick, she lost X amount of weight", but its so clear that they all wish they looked skinny enough that someone would think they were "sick". When I went though ED in high school my mom was great at helping me though it, but I know she struggles herself. There's always the comments "oh I shouldn't have had that cake", "I wish I could loose these 10 lbs". My mom was a cross-country runner her whole life, but has OA which has gotten pretty bad recently - she has a ton of joint pain and she can hardly run now because of it.
    Anyway - long backstory BUT: today I met with my mom and aunt for coffee. Long story, my aunt has had a LOT of life stress (my cousin recently passed away ~6 mo ago from a chronic illness - not a surprise but sill doesn't make it easy). She told me today that she hasn't had AF for two years, since she started on this wacky no sugar/no starch diet 2 years ago and lost 20 lbs. Since i can remember, she brings her own food to family gatherings (thanksgiving etc...) and rarely eats something she didn't prepare unless she knows exactly whats in it. She had some bloodwork done and family doc said everything was normal (not sure what that means) - but sounds to me like she's HA. She's not skinny, she looks strong and healthy, but definitely does not fuel her body properly. She asked me if she should be worried about this (as the medical person in the family I often field questions about random things). I talked to her about bone health, etc... and how its not healthy not to have AF. She asked how to protect her bones, I told her the options, but when I said she'd have to gain back those 20 lbs she said "no way! I can't handle that, I'd rather just go back on BCP". It was weird having someone sit in front of me, telling me the same things I'm telling myself, given what I know about HA. And sad to see someone in their 40s still struggling with weight, disordered eating, still not happy with the way they look (I think she looks amazing but she said she'd like to drop another 10 lbs).
    Then I had my mom beside her complaining about how sore her knees are, how she wishes she could lose the 10 lbs she's put on in the past few years since menopause, how she's unhappy with the way she looks, and my mom is NOT overweight by any stretch of the imagination.

    Bottom line - if the physiology of HA isn't genetic, the mindset that gets you there sure is. It was REALLY scary to see them both, because that's my future: worrying about when I can get that next workout in, not being able to enjoy holidays etc.. because of the stress of the food, having trouble getting up in the morning because of joint pain from years of abusing my body. I don't want to be that. Maybe being fat is better than that? And by fat I guess I really mean "normal BMI but higher than I'm comfortable with".

    But I am scared. I'm scared because I weighed myself this morning - I couldn't resist - and I'm at 18.8. My lowest which was back at the end of august was 108ish. Thats 10lbs, in less than 2 months. Those 10 lbs came on fast and easy, and I haven't even gone "all in" or "let go" yet. I'm worried the next 10 will be just as fast and easy, and then the next and the next. All the posts have said "I was worried I wouldn't stop but I did" - and I really want to believe that, but I don't. But the only alternative I can see is to keep being "comfortable", using the weight/exercise to keep "control", and then ending up this way in 20 years from now. If I don't want to be that, I have to change at some point right? And just accept that and learn to be happy 20-30lbs heavier than I am now?

    I can't say I'm committed yet, but I am getting there. You are all amazing women and I am so inspired by your bravery, your stories. I can't thank you enough for "listening".

    Also - Don't think I'm in that post Keely made - not sure where I fit...?

    Nico- Yes to the virtual ice cream party! Man, you girls know how to make a gal feel supported in style!

    Flower- I know what you mean on several levels – it’s weird to think that I’ve felt great and healthy for a long time, and have never had any major medical issues except for this- but if our reproductive systems aren’t working correctly, then something is definitely off in our bodies, and I know that I need to listen to this message from my body to help it heal itself. And I miss running and Zumba (used to take 2 classes a week) a lot, but quit cold turkey a couple of months ago, only doing yoga and walking, because I’d like to start TTC ASAP! So take it at your pace and definitely don’t rush yourself on the eating- you’re wise to be mindful of the binge-eating and not wanting to go back to that. We’ll be here to support you the whole way.

    Fit- Right on with this being extra time to heal my body. I wonder if anyone’s ever been as excited for a cyst-ectomy before – I think I’ll be dancing around the room as it gets closer to the date!

    Happybaker- Hooray for full meals and no exercise! I think lots of us can appreciate how big a deal that is, and we are proud of you for it! I didn’t know they wouldn’t diagnose HA in the UK – it’s really interesting to see the different approaches to infertility diagnosis and treatment across the globe.

    Mollsey- Ooh, I’d wanna smack those girls with a cookie if they said something like that to me. Actually, who am I kidding? That is such a waste of a good cookie. I’d only do that if it was a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie- eeeww. But seriously, it must be tough hearing comment like that, but you can always just smile and wink at them mysteriously before walking away- leave them questioning. ☺

    Jupiter- You’re right- it’s almost a month away now- I know the next two months will go quickly because of the holidays- it’s a good time to have to wait, with so many distractions. Yay for shooting up tomorrow!

    Andra- Yeah, girl, it’s time!!! So glad your IUI went well, and I hope that DH’s white blood cell count isn’t a problem. What’s the Mucinex for, btw? Love your post to Abby- I completely identify with feeling like I’ve always been the “smart” one rather than the pretty one- the one time that I felt confident about my looks was when I lost weight, and now I feel like I’m just back to average- I was only skinny for a few years, so I’m kind of used to feeling like this, but I hate having to go back to covering my belly all the time and feeling self-conscious.

    Tara- Thanks, sweet mama. I really hope your nausea clears up soon – I hate that it’s making you so miserable.

    Keely- Yeah, your stress sounds like it’s having a pretty significant impact on your body. Mine has been similar lately with my job, and I know I need to work hard to get that in check. Thanks for having faith for me, and I’ve got that list of relaxation sources – see below. How much Femara are you on now?

    BP – Thanks! And you really made me LOL with your boob-shaking! I’m holding out hope that you and your BFF will get your BFP’s ASAP! (Wow, the acronyms.)

    JCee- I want to sympathize with your pain about your BFN, but I also don’t want to give up hope this early in the game. I’m hoping with everything I have that you have better news in a couple of days.

    AFM: I will post the Meditation & Relaxation Resources in the next post, and will also post it as a document on the FB page. Please let me know what you think of them, and if anyone wants more recommendations on books/cd’s, etc, let me know. I’ll also add to the list as I find new resources. 33 days until Dermot-ectomy!

    PS- Thinking about you east-coasters and hoping Sandy doesn't cause too much damage.
    36, former marathoner (lowest BMI 17.9) Stopped BCP 6/10, no cycle. Dx with HA, reduced training, gained weight, 6 months of acu. & herbs; still no cycle. 7/12- no response to provera or 100mg Clomid. Current BMI ~23. Removed ovarian cyst 11/29- cycling & TTC naturally! 4/20/13 BFP, early m/c, 5/24/13 BFP- hopefully sticky!

    Meditation & Relaxation Resources

    If you’re looking to spend some money, I bought Belleruth Naparstek’s cd of Guided Meditations to Help with Fertility, and really like it. But most of the below resources are free, and there’s some really good stuff there as well. Help With Fertility - Health Journeys by Belleruth Naparstek at Health Journeys

    Many of you have probably already heard about Circle+Bloom, but in case you haven’t, they sell 28-day fertility relaxation/meditation programs specifically designed to go along with either natural cycles or assisted cycles. You can also download a few freebies from their website, which are very good. Tips to Getting Pregnant, Trying to Conceive, Wanting to Conceive, Getting Pregnant & Fertility Clinics

    This is the website of a woman that uses a technique that I just recently learned about called Emotional Freedom Technique – otherwise known as tapping. It is a technique that you can use on yourself and there are videos on this website as well as on Tapping.com - Free EFT Videos - Emotional Freedom Technique to show you how to use it. This website is focused on fertility issues: —

    This website is for a fertility hypnosis program, but they do have some free resources as well- you can give them your email and they’ll send you an e-book with some good info on the importance of relaxation and some good tips, as well as a sample self-hypnosis mp3: Fertility hypnosis | Hypnosis fertility | IVF | Improve fertility naturally | IVF Success | ICSI

    This is a website for a fertility clinic in New York that uses a combo. of Western and Eastern medicine techniques. They have a bunch of free recordings of guided meditations that you can listen to, and they also have monthy webinars: http://cnyfertility.com/fertility-meditations/

    YouTube has several videos that you can watch/listen to for fertility relaxation/meditation:

    Natural Fertility Meditation: Beautiful guided meditation that focuses on fertility in a really soothing way. I like this one. Natural Fertility Meditation - YouTube

    This one is called Blue Sky Mind and says that it’s a fertility meditation, but it’s really just a generic meditation to help clear your mind. Fertility Meditation ~ Blue Sky Mind Meditation - YouTube

    Fertility Meditation Through the Chakras: This one has some good visualizations as you journey through your chakras or energy centers, but it also has some chanting and bell ringing that I find distracting. Not my favorite, but it might be yours: Fertility Meditation Through the Chakras - YouTube

    Podcasts: If you aren’t familiar with podcasts, they are downloadable radio shows that you can get either on websites or through itunes, and there are a bunch about relaxation & meditation. Most of them are not specifically related to fertility, but can certainly help with anxiety, general health, etc. Here are some that I recommend:

    This one has generic meditations on various topics (including health and pregnancy) & of various lengths: Meditation Oasis Podcast -- listen to free guided meditations with music | Meditation Oasis

    My Thought Coach has a bunch of free guided meditations, grouped by category, from health, anxiety & worry, to pregnancy. My Thought Coach - Stin Hansen

    Relaxation by Inner Health Studio also has a lot of guided meditations and great visualizations. Inner Health Studio Relaxation Podcast Information

    Meditation for Health is a podcast by Dr. Robert Puff with loads of different episodes, some talking about meditation, and some leading guided meditations. Meditation | What Is Meditation | Meditation for Beginners | How to Meditate


    Hope that these are helpful, and I’ll update this document if I find new resources!

    Relax & enjoy!
