Hello everyone! I'm new to the site and after lurking for a while, I thought I'd finally introduce myself and join the conversation. My name is Thea. I'm 29 years old and my husband is 30 and we've been married for 4 years. I spent the past 11 months losing 93 pounds (299 lbs to 205 lbs, I'm 5'10) in preparation for this and I feel that I'm in a good place to finally TTC.
We tried last month, but alas, AF showed up right on schedule! After having two close friends recently get pregnant on their first try, I was a little disappointed. Also, I have to admit up front that I have a (completely irrational) fear of infertility. Most of it comes from the fact that I'm adopted. 1- I don't know ANYTHING about my medical history, and 2- my adoptive parents struggled greatly with infertility before they adopted me. I know their struggles don't affect me because we're not genetically related, but it's been an ever present part of my "story," as I was made aware of the fact that infertility problems exist waaaay before your average person.
Anyway, I'm here because after seeing some of your posts and signatures, I found comfort in knowing that it doesn't happen in one cycle for everyone. Thanks for reading and I look forward to being a part of this community
