    I was told to wait 18 months but which would put me in ttc in December as well. However, we have not been using anything since March. I understand the wanting to have a baby. I have a 4-year-old and would really like to have one more. I am 34 and trying to come to terms that it just may not happen. DH and I will end up going to see someone in June of next year if it has not happened by then since that will be 6 months of trying from the time they say we can be trying. I have maintained my weight for the last 6 months so I feel that I should be able to start trying now. HUGS and good luck.

    Period (AF) issues here as well
    Okay so here it is I had my surgery in June and I bleed for like 7 weeks straight then I started evening out and it was somewhat normal. I was anywhere between 20 to 32 days. Well my BCPs were making me sick so I went off of them and DH and I have just been using condoms when he is home (OTR trucker), anyway then November things got crazy. On November 2nd I got one that was normal and then again I got one January 2nd. Next one February 2nd and then February 25th and nothing since. I have gone in and had a blood test just to make sure that the condom did not break or anything like that and we are not pregnant yet. The doctor does figure it is due to the surgery but here is my issue my weight has stabilized for the most part and I have been at the same weight for the last 3ish months. I would think things would be more normal now. Any ideas.

    I am doing good as well I lost a ton between 3 and 6 months and they are not thinking I am coming to a stable weight since I have not lost much in the last 3 months. I would love to loose the last 30lbs so I am in normal weight. However I am happy where I am at.

  7. Hilary added a post in a topic Question About Periods   

    I had my GB on 6-6-11 and 2 days later started bleeding and bled for 7 weeks straight. I posted something like this on the pregnancy board and there were several ladies that also went through this so yes. When I talked to an OB doc she told me it was because of all the hormones being reliesed in the fat cells from the weight lose. It is a pain but it will stop.

    I have had the dizziness a lot lately when I talked to the NUT she is thinking it is from dehydration because I was already taken off my HB meds.

    What Websites Do You Use Have You Heard Of ...
    I am not having any luck getting any meat in me or my protein drinks so was looking on different websites found this one Nashua Nutrition and it looks like it has some good things to try. It made me wonder what other sites others before me have tried.

  15. Hilary added a post in a topic Wondering If I Am The Only One Tmi   

    I am already on the pill and it is not working so hope it helps you. What did you find out today at your apt and yes it does help to know that we are normal and not the only ones going through this. I was never warned that this could happen and was really scared something was going wrong with me. HOPE THIS ENDS SOON!!!! I am wanting to have a weekend away with my hubby but not if this is going on.
