I decided again to start a new journal. I have so much going on in my life right now, that if I decided to start one for each thing I would have a ttc journal, & an exercise journal so I am just going to start a general journal. A little background information: My name is Emily, I am 28 years old. I have been married to my dh for 5 years, and we had our first child, Logan in November of 06.
We decided to get off bcp in June 05. I got pregnant that first cycle of ttc, but it ended in July w/ a m/c. It was basically a blighted ovum, even though my doctor never used that term. I had a d&c, and within 60 days I had my first af. We then started ttc again after 1 cycle, but it took until several cycles before we got pregnant again. That pregnancy was healthy and everything worked out wonderfully. Logan was born in Nov 06, healthy and huge. We decided to start ttc again when Logan hit a year old. We wanted them to be about 2 years apart, so in January of 08 we began trying again. I got pregnant the first cycle we were ttc. That one ended in March 08 with another m/c and d&c. So now here I am I just finished my first af, so we have decided to begin ttc this go around. We also decided to not chart/use the fertility monitor/etc.. this cycle- just relax and enjoy. So this will be where I put my daily thoughts on the whole process- that way I won't drive dh crazy.
I am considered a petite person, except for my lower extremeties. I have always had a larger lower portion and been smaller up top. When I graduated from high school, 10 years ago, I weighed in at 102 lbs. In college, it quickly started to add up, and by the time I got married (5 years ago) I weighed in at 125 lbs. When I got pregnant with Logan I weighed in at my heaviest (non-pregnant) at 135 lbs. I wasn't happy with this weight, and had begun trying to get in shape before getting pregnant. Due to having a large baby, and nursing I quickly dropped down to 121 lbs last summer (6-7 months after having Logan). Since I stopped nursing, I have regained almost all of the weight I lost. I weighed in this morning at 133 lbs, and for my frame I am not happy with that weight. I have my 10 year reunion coming up in September and I would love to be down to 120 lbs by then.
So this is my new journal. I will check in here often to keep a journal of my exercise/ttc journey.
