I've been on this forum for nearly 2 years now and I can't believe how much my life has changed in that time.
I lost around 5 stone and am still maintaining in the low 10s, have been for over a year now, although I would like another half a stone off before I get my BFP just as an extra buffer (although I really don't mind which comes first ).
I already have a beautiful 4 year old little girl from a previous relationship who is as besotted with my current partner as I am. We are very lucky girls.
Today we put in an application for a new house (rented) and *fingers crossed* should be moving within the next few weeks. I'm currently in a tiny 2 bed terraced house and the new one is a massive 4 bed in a gorgeous area. The space is incredible. Trying (and failing) not to get too excited!
I've also gained a fur baby (border terrier) since meeting my OH. Life is good and feels like this is how it should have always been.
About 3 weeks ago I took a pregnancy test, I was on cerazette so not uncommon to not have a period but I'd be feeling unwell so just thought I'd make sure. I was a bit smug and about 99.9% sure I wasn't pregnant, the result was negative as I knew it would be. I'm not sure what made me keep the test or what made me look at it again but while it had been wrapped up in my bag something had happened and it looked almost like a faint positive. I was in a bit of a panic. I took another test and it was definitely negative...anyway, I'm rambling, I told my OH this 'funny story' and he didn't say much...3 days later it was my birthday, he'd written the most beautiful message in my card about how he realised he'd wanted my 'funny story' to have a different ending and if I agreed we should throw my pills away. So I have and here we are
Although I have a child I've never actively tried to get pregnant! Right now it's exciting and I just want it to stay that way. I don't want to think about what we'll do if there's any problems until there's a reason to. I'm waiting to get my period so I know when my cycle starts etc and although we are in no rush I hope it happens soon! I want nothing more than to have a baby with my OH which is something I've never felt before. We are so happy and such a good team the thought of him with a baby absolutely melts me, he's fantastic with my little girl and he wants this for her just as much as he does for us.
I've talked a lot!
So, my plan is to continue calorie counting and maybe cut back on the 'treat days' with the hope of losing rather than maintaining. And to do lots of baby making...obvs
I am pretty much clueless on the abbreviations used on this part of the forum and about any of the next steps if we struggle to conceive.
Good luck to anyone else in the same boat. X
