Hello, my name is Sabrina! Im 21 going on 22, and DH is 25. We have been married 2 years this October 21st. We have been trying to have a child since the end of July(this year) after my period, which was a pill period. I was on Ortho tri-cyclen lo for one year to help regulate my cycle, as I was diagnosed with amenorrhea due to my 8 year battle with anorexia and bulimia. I had missed my period for a year and a half while I was in the worst times of my eating disorder, as with that I developed a cyst on my ovaries-and have many other complications due to my eating disorder. However I have been actively in recovery for 6mths now :-) yay. Im doing alot better food wise, the thoughts are still there but I can deal with them alot better.
Anyways, I know it will be hard to conceive especially after getting off the pill-I know it takes a while for the body to adjust and get back to normal and the damage done to my body is still healing. I had my period the beginning of this month for the first time since being off birth control, however I did not ovulate this month-dry almost the entire month and temps never changed :-(. Im hoping October is my month, Ill be praying very hard for God to grant my wish and all of yours. Ill be sure to keep up to date as much as I can!

Your welcome :-)
For the past couple days my stomach is pooched out...like it literally did this overnight and Im not having digestive problems..its just the look of bloat(however Im not) Its weird, but Im used to weird things happening with my body.
AF should be showing up this Friday so that may have something to do with it...

*sigh* I took 3 tests over the weekend and all came out negative. AF still isnt here though....however Im feeling a bit crampy today. So maybe all the symptoms I was having is her trying to squeeze her way back in.
October please be good to me!!!!!!!!
