Hey all.

I'm sure nobody remembers me haha. I used to drop on at the beginning of my TTC journey and enjoyed obsessing over POAS and sx's with everyone. :rofl:

Unfortunately my mental health took a massive hit and I couldn't take TTC much longer. We didn't stop trying per se, but we stopped *trying*. Basically we decided to get things together and get my head straight. No contraception was used. No baby arrived.

A couple of years ago I fell ill with my gall bladder and we took a break whilst I had that removed. Then I was diagnosed pre-diabetic and peri-menopausal. I was edging on 17 stone, smoking heavily and tbh not living a very pg friendly life.

Things have changed.

I am now a non-smoker (2 years) and slimming down nicely (2 stone gone since January). I'm eating better, feeling better and generally feeling more like it's time to get focused and give this one last try. I'm 32 now, I know time is edging forwards. Especially with the peri-menopausal diagnosis which my doctor will not reverse even though my af's are now suddenly clockwork (exactly once a month to the day) and all of my hormonal symptoms are gone.

So that's me. 8 years of ttc from hard-core trying to just dtd without a goalie. Definitely looking for support, tips and some ladies to laugh through this with.

Hi! It's great to hear you've made some positive changes and it sounds like those changes have been good for your body! I may not have tips or be able to offer advice but when you've been at it for a while and you feel the clock ticking camaraderie sure is nice! I hope you aren't waiting too much longer!
