Hi. :) I'm here, TTC number 2. I have one daughter who will be 3 on Oct 10th. I'm 26 and SO is 32. This was our 3rd month trying and still nothing. I have fibromyalgia (flaring) and am currently stuck with a super high BMI. I'm eating well(whole foods, no gluten or dairy due to allergies, low sugar) and exercising(I'm walking 2 miles, to school and back, even though I hurt). The weight wont come off and I'm terrified that I wont be able to get pregnant until I drop 70lbs. :/ I haven't been taking my temp, but am starting tomorrow since my period is due then and I got a BFN. I had spotting wednesday that was light pink so I thought that may be implantation bleeding, but I guess not. Or maybe it's still too soon? Will my DD I didn't test until my period was a week late. Anyway, hi.

Hello, I'm also on cycle 3 of TTC #2. My DD turned 2 on Sept 1.
Were you near your current weight when you got pg w/ DD#1? Have you talked to your doctor about your concerns and TTC at all? Maybe he/she would have some suggestions for your situation? Anyway, welcome and good luck!

I was 70lbs lighter when I got pregnant. I'm 223lbs right now(at 5'8") and I was 152 when I got pregnant. :/ I'm going to chart the next few cycles(3-4) and then take those in if I'm still not pregnant.

Welcome! I hope your stay here will be short. 3 cycles isn't that bad. Most ob/gyn's don't get concerned until you've been TTC for 12 months. I know it seems like a really long time but that's for a healthy couple. Just something to keep in mind.

I feel your pain with the BMI department. Luckily I only gained 19 pounds with my pregnancy. I have to lose 30# by January. That's my annual exam and even though I saw my gyn yesterday he didn't say anything. My baby boy is 9 months old so I'm sure if it's gone by January we'll be okay.

I'm sorry that you're in so much pain. But props to you for walking thru the pain! I'm sure it can't be easy. Keep up the good work! Welcome to the board. Find a buddy group and hop on in.

Thanks Laura! I was TTC for 8 months with my DD before we got pregnant, so I know it can take a while. It's still frusterating. I've had 2 chemical pregnancies this year which I think makes it even harder.
