My husband and I have been married for almost two years now. We bought a house a few months ago and finally feel stable and settled enough to start trying to conceive. I have a history of irregular cycles but I have been off of birth control for 2 years now preparing for this moment. Up until now we have just been using condoms.
Last summer I charted my cycle for a few months and then started working a different shift. I plan to resume temping at the beginning of my next cycle. I still use FF to keep track of my cycle days and log when I start and how long it lasts.
I have been losing weight in order to be healthier for TTC and pregnancy and I have noticed my cycles getting more regular. I went from 50+ days in my cycle to ~30 days per cycle. I still have about 7 more pounds to lose before I reevaluate my weight to see if I would like to lose more.
I look forward to getting to know yall and I my husband and I are in no hurry to conceive. We understand that it could take up to a year with my history and so we decided to start sooner than later.
Welcome, and GL!
