Hello I'm Kris and I'm happy to be part of the CafeMom family!

I've been married going on three years, been TTC for two years and have not been successful.  I had gastric bypass surgery last July and lost a total of 124 lbs! Still have not been able to conceive, and my age is playing a factor which I can't do anything about but there are women older than me who are having babies! So I'm hoping to find others I can relate to and who can give me advice or tell me there story.


Thanks!

 You just need to hang in there.  It can take a while.  I lost 130 pounds and it still took me 2 years to get pregnant after losing the weight.  You didn't mention how old you are, but I'm 33 and pregnant for the first time.  It took me a total of 12 years, so you just can't give up.  A lot of moms will tell you that it took longer than they expected, but well worth it.

Hi Addie!


I'm 43 yrs old!  I've tried to get pregnant before way before I met my husband! I thank God he didn't make me fertile then because I was dealing with jerks! When I met my husband he became my best friend and we had HAVE a lot in common.  I was 402 lbs 9 months ago and knew that I would not have been able to get pregnant being that heavy.  The surgery saved my life and made me change a lot of bad habits! My menstrual period started becoming regular but I did however missed this month.  I took a test two weeks ago and it was negative....I might have taken it to early though.
