I'd like to introduce myself — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

I'd like to introduce myself

I haven't posted on the bump for a year, possibly longer. This is my first post on this board and I am so excited to be here! I copied my bio below in case you want to know my background. Looking forward to sharing this new chapter in my life with you!

About me

I'm a 30-something working mom from MT with a beautiful son who will be 3 in October 2012!. My DH and I have been wanting another child pretty much since the day we met our DS. Life had other plans for us. I found a tumor in my abdomen when DS was just 4 months old. When he was 7 mo. I had the tumor removed and learned it was cancer. It's been just over 2 years since my diagnosis and I get regular follow-ups and am proud to say I am cancer-free! My husband and I have worked closely with my general doc, surgeon, high-risk OB, and oncologist and we've been given the go-ahead to start trying! So here I am! I had my IUD (paragard) removed last Friday 5/25/12 and now we're just waiting for my cycle to get on track. With our son, I was on the pill and stopped taking it in November and was pregnant by January. My life was much different then and my body hadn't been through as much as it's been through in the last couple of years. We're optimistic though, it will happen when it's meant to happen and hopefully that's soon!
