- Wedding: April 2012
Hi all! When I was planning my wedding last year, I found the weddingbee incredibly helpful! I have also been a lurker on a lot of the other boards for awhile, but figured that now that Darling Husband and I are officially TTC, I would introduce myself! I am trying to familiarize myself with the “language” so forgive me if I get anything wrong!
My Darling Husband and I currently live in VA Beach but are moving to RI mid-July; he is in the navy and took a position in Groton, CT so we could be near my family, as I grew up in RI! We just closed on our new house yesterday!
I am 27, Darling Husband is 31. This will be the first child for both of us and as long as this process doesn’t take too long, it will be the first grandchild for both sets of parents! CD1 was this past Wednesday, so this is officially the first cycle of TTC!
One thing that concerns me is when I was 18, I developed an eating disorder and lost a significant amount of weight in a very short period of time. As a result, my menses ceased for over a year, which I have read can affect fertility. Also, there is a history of hypothyroidism in my family, which can also affect fertility.
Other than that, we are ready to start trying!
