Obese My Whole Life- Time for a Change!

If you are looking for a friend to help you through, just send me a hello :)

Hey there--

I saw you added me as a friend. :) I've known for years that I wasn't able to get pregnant without help so it wasn't a surprise. I have PCOS, too, so that doesn't improve my situation. We've been going through treatments for about 13 mth. If it doesn't happen this month, we're taking a 2 mth. break due to the holidays and trips we have planned. Obviously I'd prefer to get pregnant this cycle but if I don't, it will give me a chance to work on my weight loss until we start up again in February. If you ever need to talk, I'm here. I can definitely relate. Nice to meet you. Oh, and my name is Sara. :)

I can definitely sympathize on trying to conceive. I've been trying for 5 years with no luck. So I'm here if you need an ear to vent

I just wanted to say Hi! I'm pretty new here, but my husband and I have been trying to have a baby since we got married, and I understand how tough it can be.

I hope we can be friends! Good luck with your weight loss!

Laura
