Strep throat no more...

Yep..I am back amongst the living. Thank you all so much for your kind words and encouragement. I am feeling MUCH better now and actually feel like I might live to see another day.

So...I have been on my new meds and my new diet for almost 3 weeks now. Guess what?....I have lost 8 lbs and one inch off my waste. I can't remember the last time I put on a pair of pants that USED to be tight on me and...they actually FIT!!! Now that I don't have strep throat anymore, I will be returning to the gym with Pace so hopefully the results will come even quicker from here on out.

I just really hope this works, that my cycles return to normal and we can actually have some hope at conceiving in 2008. I just can't imagine not being able to carry my own child in my womb.

Pace and I are actively looking for a house to buy now. We saw 5 houses on Saturday - only 2 remain on the "maybe" list. Neither one of them have just jumped out and grabbed me. Thankfully we have some time. We will begin the communication with our mortgage broker later on this week and then the real stress kicks in...Money talk!

Pace and I have been going to some marriage classes at our Church for the last month and yesterday the lesson was on confession and forgiveness. I think it is really what I needed to hear. Through this whole infertility mess, I have been hurt so many times by friends, family members etc. Sometimes I spoke up, sometimes I just let it slide, never the less, I was still hurt and I still carry that hurt with me. I am really feeling the need to forgive my friend (whom I haven't spoken to in almost a year) that totally crushed me, was totally unsupportive, insensitive and blatantly mean to me. I don't know if we could ever be friends again, but I know that I need to forgive her. I need to get rid of that emotional junk so that I can be healthy.

Anyway...that is my update for now. I hope you all are doing well!

Okay, you haven't updated in awhile, so how's the weight loss going? Are your cycles getting better?

Did you two find a house? And how are the classes going?

Update, update!

Hi, I came across this page and I read over some of it and felt compelled to send you a message. My husband and I have also been unsuccessful in TTC. I have very irregular cycles and I am overweight as well. I have lost some weight but it still did not help to bring my cycles back to regular. I took Provera and that did not help either. I did some research on herbal remedies to help with cycle regulation and found this herb called Vitex. I don't know if you have heard of it or not but after 3 months of taking it 2 times a day my cycles have been normal for 4 months now! I am nearing my fertile period (Sept 4 - Sept 10) and we are going to try. Hopefully we will be successful. I just thought that I would share that information about the Vitex with you. You can purchase it at any GNC or Vitamin World or anywhere that sells natural herbal supplements. Hope this helps
