Oki doki... after about 2 years of trying... I'm ready to vent my frustrations and keep all my obsessions in one central place My story:
I am 30 years old and have a rare blood disorder called Acute Intermittent Pophyria. This should not affect my chances for conceiving naturally, however, it does come with a lack of menses That's good and bad...
DH is 30 also... he had an SA done and all was normal *YEAH* Very happy about that!!!
So... all the cousins on my mom's side of the family have kids, except for one cousin. My maternal grandmother had a child when she was 42!!! I should not have a problem TTC, right??? *sigh* Well, I've been charting my BBT and well, my cycles are realy screwy... I don't even know if I'm really ovulating or anything.
I'm 5 ft 2 inches and REALLY need to lose some weight... so this is also my weight loss journal I'm starting at 188 lbs!!! EEEEEWWWWW! Can we say FAT?!?!?!?! I wonder how many languages I can learn the word fat in....
Anyway, I really want to have a baby!!! DH and I are finally in a good place emotionally and financially. We both have full-time jobs and we just bought our first house at the end of January. We did some renovations and we moved in president's day weekend! It is sooo nice to have my own space. We were living my with in-laws for 14mos. while DH studied/passed the bar and looked for a full-time job. They were amazing letting us stay there for so long, but we really needed to start our own life, you know?
So, I'm giving this whole TTC thing until the end of the year...if no BFP by then... I'm consulting an RE. Last year my dr. stated he could recommend an RE for us, but we just weren't ready then... I mean we were trying and would've been ecstatic if we did conceive, but we weren't ready for the "do anything to have a baby" stuff, IYKWIM????
So, here we are... TTC and trying to lose weight
