Hello! My husband and I are both 33 and we have been struggling with what seemed like the biggest decision of our lives of whether or not to have kids for a few years. And funny thing - I haven't had a period for three months, ever since we finally decided that we were ready to start trying. During that time, I also found out I never had the chicken pox and decided to get vaccinated, so we had to wait to start trying anyway (two doses a month apart and you are advised not to get pregnant for a month after the last dose). After some bloodwork that came back normal, I am now on day 5 of 7 of Provera and this Saturday is the end of our waiting period from the vaccine. I'm hoping that my cycle will start soon after getting off Provera and that my body will get itself back on track.
We live in New England in a small fixer-upper we've been working on for 5 years with two cats - one who is neurotic (and I mean it literally) and the other who is neurotic (not so literally) about food but otherwise normal. We like hiking and camping and I like to run and knit.
I have not told anyone IRL that we are TTC so I'm looking forward to being part of this community.
