    Comments regarding DW's diet changes-
    I wasn't very strict with my diet. I had been following parts of the diet for a year, ie rarely any meat, smaller portions, lots more caffeine, skipping breakfast. But went through phases where my calorie counting was rather lax. Went on holiday 2 months before TTC where I didn't count calories at all, then went full pelt on the LE diet for the 5 weeks before TTC.

    Strict PCOS LE diet from 5 weeks before attempt
    Not very strict PCOS LE diet for a year before attempt

    Yes

    DH also ate a lot less meat, we've been mainly vegetarian for the past year.

    I definitely could have been stricter with my diet, but I decided the pressure of trying to get everything 'right' might be too much, so I focused on long term changes instead.

    Things that make me feel great about my sway:
    My diet is definitely less nutritious than it has been when I conceived my three boys. I'm eating a lot less meat (avoid it mostly now), and smaller portions. Was never a big coffee drinker and now I've been having 2 or 3 cups a day.

    There are a few things I did differently for this conception that I definitely wasn't doing for my boys - regular exercise, actively losing weight, NOT taking B vitamin supplements and prenatal vitamins, and one BD attempt.

    My hormone profile has changed a lot since conceiving my boys. Yasmin and metformin have helped lower testosterone, balance my blood sugar levels, and raise SHBG.
    Things that make me nervous about my sway:
    I have a sweet tooth and I'm not confident I cut down my sugar intake enough - maybe relied a bit too much on the metformin to balance that.

    I didn't really lose much weight, definitely not at my lowest weight ever. I would have liked to have lost a lot of weight, but knowing myself, I'd struggle to stick to any form of strict diet for longer than 2 months, so I made the decision not to be too strict or worry about my weight too much.

    I was only strict with the LE diet in the last 5 weeks before TTC, which I know is not ideal!

    My weight and my diet are the things I find hardest to change. But I have consciously shifted my diet over the past year, and the changes that I've found easy, I've stuck to long term.
    Things worth mentioning:
