Going through the multitude of boards and found this one! It seems to be where I fit right now! Just wanted to take a moment to say HI to everyone! Hubby and I are stuck waiting to TTC due to medical reasons. I was told I had cancer 3 years ago. After several surgeries and rather invasive (for this type of cancer) treatments later I am now have been free of disease for a year. We are hoping that after another 6-12 mos of all clears we will get the ok to TTC even though we know the windows of oppurtunity will be reduced due to yearly testing. I have had one dr tell me that I could not begin to even think about TTC until 5 years from my last radiation treatment. I have not heard anything similiar from other dr's though so I am going to stick with the 6-12 mos wait and hope they are right! I have a multitude of other problems that may make actually get PG difficult but hopefully most of those problems will be worked out by the time we get to the point we are ready to go! The baby bug has bit me hard lately and it seems every time I turn around someone close to me is finding out that they are expecting. It is even harder to have to explain to people that we can not even begin to TTC when they start with the "are you guys going to have kids" questions.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone around here! Looks like a very friendly group of people :)

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! It has been a rough time but we are looking forward to some better times ahead! Oncology visit next week that will hopefully give us some good news and maybe even a better time frame for planning :) :)
