Hi ladies. I am new to baby gaga so excuse me if I don't use the correct lingo. There aren't too many forums that address weight loss before baby (besides Get you pre baby body back posts). I have been trying to conceive since 2008 and I've been searching on the web for months for something related to my issue. I can only find PCOS information, but I don't have that.



My First cycle started when I was nine and I never had an irregular cycle until age 21. Since this was my first time having an irregular cycle I thought I was pregnant. I went through the mixed emotions of being scared and excited and then after multiple BPN's, I began wanting a child so badly. I went to the doctor numerous times just to hear "Lose weight". My current weight is 214 lbs. Yeah, I know that sounds like a lot, but if you look at me I don't look like weigh that much. Long story short (already long huh? Lol) I loss some weight, about 30 lbs, and had one cycle and since then its been EXTREMELY irregular.



My point of this post is to help anyone in my shoes to witness my journey. I've cried many nights thinking that I can't have children. It's a blessing that they can't find anything medically wrong, but it also makes me wonder if I'm infertile. My journey is going to be for a healthy weight and hopefully to be a TTC graduate. Please follow along for my weekly posts. :)

I've taken provera about three times in the last 4 years.

How long did you take the provera?

If you've been TTC since 2008 then you are infertile. However that doesn't mean whatever is causing your infertility can't be treated or even cured. What kind of testing have you had done?

I think it may have been my partner. We have been apart for a year and a half now and now I have a new boyfriend. We will begin trying this year.
