    Hi everyone, I just decided to join up here after reading the forums a lot lately. I'm currently trying to conceive (duh!) and I thought that it might help me with some of my emotions if I had a place like this to talk to other women going through what I'm going through.

    I haven't been trying for very long. I took my last pack of birth control in June. I did not have a period until August 25th. I had hoped that meant I'd get back on track, but I did not have another period until a few days ago, October 30th, so my cycle was 66 days.

    I've been using the Wundufo (sp?) OPKs since my flow stopped. It was a fairly short period, only lasted until November 4th but it was normal/heavy flow so i thought maybe I'm back on track now but still not sure.

    According to the whole 14 day thing, I should be in my ovulation window as of yesterday or so. I haven't gotten a positive OPK yet and I'm starting to worry that I may not be ovulating at all.

    Since October of last year I had lost a lot of weight and gotten a lot healthier, but DH and I have both been slipping the past few months and I've gained quite a bit of weight back. I'm currently almost 5'6" and over 200 again.

    Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself a little. I'm a 25 year old office manager from Houston, TX. I've been married for 2 years and I have an 8 year old stepson. We have a mini pinscher/chiuahaha mix dog that's like a baby to me and I'm hoping next year we'll have one of our own together.

    Hello to you!

    If you are anything like me! You will be irregular for a few months after coming off the pill (my doc says it could be a year to get regular again).

    Good luck :happydance:

    I'd much rather it be that than another problem, though the waiting to get back on track does stink.

    I wasn't very irregular before BC so that gives me hope that it's just my hormones. I'm sure the weight gain hasn't helped though.

    Thank you :)
