IVF Success Story:

Obese To Expectant: Janice* & Rob’s* Story:
 Janice* is currently a 37-year-old expectant mother, but that hasn’t always been the story. Janice* had originally met Rob* in February of 2000. At that point Rob* weighed exactly 288 lbs at 5-foot-10. Janice* also had struggled with her weight, including oftentimes when she was herself classified as obese. Despite their combined obesity, Janice* found herself pregnant in 2004. Both Janice* and Rob* were originally delighted to hear they would have a child. However, at their 12-week check-in Janice* was told that there would be no child for her and Rob* as the sac was empty, and no heartbeat could be detected. The doctor frankly told Janice* that it was her weight that stopped her from carrying to term.
 Mortified, Janice* returned home empty-handed. Janice* and Rob* were subsequently denied IVF treatment as they did not meet the BMI requirements for the treatment. Gutted, humiliated, and more determined than ever Janice* knew her and Rob* needed a plan as conceiving naturally wasn’t working for them. One night Rob* found a plan on the internet that claimed to be a “short-term fix” for people needing to lose weight. It was called the Cambridge Weight Plan. It involved swapping your food each day for 3 milkshakes. It seemed simple enough so desperate as they were Janice* and Rob* decided to give it a go. 
 That was in October of 2011 when Janice* and Rob* cleaned their kitchen out from all the junk and pursued their diet. After a few days of initial success the couple added healthful soups and diet bars into their diet. Both began their diet at a staggering 262 pounds EACH. The end result was astounding. In about six months Janice* found herself at her target weight for IVF at 165 lbs and Rob* met his quote shortly thereafter at 170 lbs. 
 Janice* and Rob* immediately contacted a new IVF clinic to seek treatment. The clinic happily told the couple they reached their goal weights, and that they would be provided. The first round of IVF treatment provided more gutting news. Another miscarriage before 12 weeks. Janice* cited this as the lowest point in her marriage with Rob*, but the couple knew they couldn’t give up just yet. Another round of IVF later the pregnancy took. 
 At the time of sharing this story Janice* is 23 weeks pregnant. At a healthful size 12 at the time of inception, Janice* is determined not to put too much weight on as an expectant mother. Doctors have told Janice* 20–35 pounds is permissible at her pre-pregnancy weight. Janice* so far is right on track having gained exactly 14 pounds in 23 weeks. Janice* also understands she must lose that weight after pregnancy to remain healthy. Janice* and Rob* intend to continue to pursue IVF treatment after the birth of their first child, only once Janice* has cut the weight she gained during the pregnancy. Janice* and Rob* have both been given clean bills of health, and told there is no reason they can’t have many children as they wish in the future long as they keep their weight and health a priority.
