Hi everyone. My name is Melissa, and I have been a member of PO since my first pregnancy back in 2002. However, I haven't been on here in YEARS and now I'm back because I just got remarried a few months ago, and we are TTC asap!
I have three beautiful children: Gabriella and Isabella (twins, born April 2003), and Deborah (born August 2004). Their dad and I divorced three years ago, and now I am happily married to my best friend in the world, Jason. We were married in September, and though he loves my girls like they're his own, he has no bio children of his own. So since neither of us is getting any younger, we decided that if we were going to have a child or two together, we'd better get on that right away.
I had a Mirena IUD in for 7 years, and never had a period the entire time. I just had it removed in October. My first cycle lasted 39 days, and now I am on day 19 of my second cycle. We are hoping that my cycle returns to its normal 28-30 day self very soon... we are currently basing our TTC efforts on LMP dates, so we hope that I O'd on day 14 or so this time around. If so, we had plenty of action from day 12-16, so here's to hoping!
Anyway, I'm not hoping for much this month, but it's going to kill me to wait until the end of next week to test, anyway. My assumption is that I will be around here for a while, so I wanted to introduce myself and hope to get to know you all!!
Thanks for reading my book!
