I am new to this forum. I've just (last year) come out of a long but difficult relationship and moved house to be with a new man who wants (like me) to start a family. At 37 I am starting late but hope I am healthy enough to move on to a new stage of my life soon. I'm taking folic Acid and have come off the pill (mini pill) which I was on for only about 8 months. before that I had a long break from the Pill after about 5 years on Microgynon 30.
Anyway - I live in Cardiff with my two cats (no I'm not some mad old cat lady!) and new man is all but living with me now. I've lived in England and Ireland but have been in Wales since I was 7 so feel mostly Welsh (despite not being born here). I have a brother and a sister, both of whom married recently but apart from my sister's step daughter they both have no children. I work in a music library, love my job...
now going to read back a bit to see if I have done this correctly.
AH-HA! Lol - so I'll do this now
