Hi my name is Wendy and I am 36. MY DH is 33
We have been officially TTC since March 2005 although I stopped BCP in Dec 2004.
I have been diagnosed with PCOS and also Under active Thyroid.
I am currently taking 100mg Thyroxine and 850mg Metformin x 2 per day.
I currently weight 276lbs at my heaviest I have weighed 310lbs.
In the UK I am under a NHS consultant which means long waiting lists unless we pay to go privately.
I have regular cylces between 29 to 34 days. I seem to O on my own but I am convinced it is a weak O.
I have had 2 x M/C in 199 (6 wks) and 2000 (9 weeks). With a different partner.
In June 2005 I suffered a very early M/C at just 4 weeks and 5 days.
My consultant has just agreed to run more blood tests and DH has to have semen analysis. My Consultant refuses to put me on the waiting list for IVF until I have lost another 35lbs.
My next appointment is not until April 2007. Just before my 37th birthday. Time just seems to be running out.....
Name / Age: Kristen, and I'll be 25 on December 20th
How long you been TTC? Since September 2006
What challenges have you ran into on your TTC journey because of being Plus sized? As of right now, none! The only issues I'm having are trying to regulate my period after being on birth control for YEARS (seasonale was GREAT to be on, but a B*tch to come off!!!)
Anything else you want us to know?! I work for a cable company... I am hoping to get an apprenticeship as a tattoo artist sometime in the next year (I'm covered in tattoos... 24 to be exact) and I have a freckle on my left eyeball
Name- Jessica .. age 27
How long you been TTC? only a few weeks, already frustrated
What challenges have you ran into on your TTC journey because of being Plus sized? Due to my weight I am insulin resistant... I am finding out this may interfere with my trying, along with other things.
Anything else you want us to know?
Elijah and I plan to be married in Jan of this year with a small ceremony.
Of course no drugs yet as it is too soon but if I am already frustrated now I can imagine how I will feel several months... I have wanted to be married with children for seven years now.... and was with the wrong man, now that I am with the love of my life there is nothing I want more then to have his baby.
I hope I can meet some awesome people here.
Holy cow...how do I miss these introdution threads? LOL! Anywho:
Name / Age: Amber (26) married to DH Steve (31)
How long you been TTC? Since December 12!
What challenges have you ran into on your TTC journey because of being Plus sized? None, as of yet! Hopefully my stay here will be short and sweet and there won't be any challenges.
Anything else you want us to know?! Um, sure....why not. I have bipolar disorder (type 2). I had to taper off of epival before TTC. When I get pregnant, I will be considered high-risk, as my risk for relapse is about 50 %. I'm doing well so far, though, and have an amazing support system.
Meira, 37, married since 8/06, TTC unofficially for about 15 months. 2 m/cs since then. Several in my previous life, so not a lot of hope that this will work. 9yo adopted special needs DD from my first marriage. TTC and TTAdopt. Happy to adopt a baby or toddler with special needs and/or older siblings, as long as they are younger than my DD. Both roller coasters are quite frustrating!!! But anything worth it is a lot of work, so let's get us some babies!!!!
Name / Age: Nicole/29 (soon to be 30)
How long you been TTC? ummm...not sure...haven't really had normal cycles but been off the pill since May 06.
Anything else you want us to know?! Been married now for 4 and half years (5 years in April). . . Just graduated from grad school in May so decided to take the baby plunge finally!! I have a nephew and neice that are absolutely gorgeous!! [/b]
Hi, i am sarah, 28, in process of most likely having a m/c, we find out forsure wed, but already got the no on the hpt (spotting went to bleeding with clots)
I have a dd who is 16 months, had no problem conceiving her (wedding night baby) and we will start ttc again in april.
look forward to getting to know you all!
Hey everyone, my name is Mandie and I'm a psw that just started ttc.
My DH and I decided (through a communiction and bcp error) to bump "sometime this year" to "no time like the present!"
I'm 23, he's 22 (although we both have may birthdays, so that'll change soon) and we were just married last October.
Currently, as this is my first cycle off bcp, I don't know for sure what my body is doing, but the best I can tell is I'm in the 2ww. I think I am approx. 10-13 dpo, and expect AF anywhere from last Friday to next Friday (based on cycles while on the pill, plus suspected O date).
I'm trying not to read too much into any sign or symptom, although I've had a few interesting moments this last week, but obviously getting pregnant right away would be great.
I hope to be around a bit in the evenings and such, so hopefully you'll be seeing a lot of me!
