AF showed today. I am going to take the one cycle off that my RE requires between injectable cycles and then re-evaluate whether I want to wait even longer or not. Right now I am thinking about waiting until the first of the year to start again. I don't know...maybe I will change my mind but I do want to work on losing some weight before trying again. I have been thinking that in 2007 I got pg no problem 3 times without meds and in 2008 I went through 5 medicated cycles with no luck. The only difference between 2007 and 2008 is 20 pounds that I gained while being pg/depressed/pg/depressed/pg/depressed...then confined to my couch for 9 weeks in January because of my foot surgeries. I gained about 20 pounds in that time and haven't been able to get it off. So my goal is to lose it now before trying again. I know I can do it if I put my mind to it and not worry about TTC until it comes off. I did make an RE appt for Oct 13th to discuss our options and ask for some testing. I want a glucose tolerance test to see if the weight gain has caused any insulin resistance. I am also going to ask for an SA for DH even though I have gotten pg things could have changed since then.

Anyway I didn't want to just leave the boards without saying anything. I will still lurk now and then but for the most part I will be away from the boards as well.

We'll miss you, but I completely understand the need for a break from everything. TTC and loss take a lot out of you. We're here anytime you're ready or if you just want to pop in to say hello.

I totally understand that you may feel you need a break. Please don't think though that you have to stay away in order to take some time off from TTC. We are here for you whatever you are doing - TTC or not, trying to loose weight - needing to vent - whatever! Again - if you feel you need a break from teh boards - only yu can know that - but remember that we are here for you regardless!

I understand the need to get away, but don't feel like you have to!

I wish they had a general weight loss board. I'm also looking to lose some weight but I don't feel like I fit in on the Mommy Weight Loss board... for me it opens a wound and makes it raw... because I'm trying to lose the stubborn weight from two losses, no baby in my arms...

But we're still here for you if you want us hun!
