Back on the forum after a long time away
I haven't been here in over a year, I'd guess, but my heart is still here.
DH and I have moved to a second foreign country now, and are headed back to the US in about 2 months... I was hoping to have our UC here, but it looks like that won't happen--we're not even taking home a little 'souvenir' like my friends took from Costa Rica (their conceived baby!)
We had planned to TTC last summer, when I had lost all of the extra weight I'd carried for YEARS (seriously, I think I completely skipped the clothing sizes 6 and 8 when I was in my early teens!), but my cycles were all crazy because of emergency family trips back to the US and all of the stress. Then I gained back about 25 lbs. But I'm working hard now, DH says "We're on the War Path!" to lose the weight. It's our goal (he's losing too) to be back down to ideal weights by October at the latest. But to be a LOT closer before we go to the US in September. If I lose 2 lbs. a week until we return, I'll only be 6 lbs. up from my lowest 'ever' weight. That's exciting! (And just in time for DH's birthday... hmmm... maybe we can TTC then, huh?!)
All that to say, I'm here, I hope that you're able to have baby success soon, and look forward to being back 'in touch' with this group in the months to come!
