Hey everyone! I've been kind of MIA lately with school and grad school taking over my life, but I've been reading the board almost every day and I've enjoyed following what's going on with everyone. Sorry if this is TMI, but I was just wondering if anyone else is in the same boat.
I was just wondering if anyone is kind of "preparing" to TTC. To be completely honest, I've gotten kind of thin over the past couple of years. I've always been a healthy eater and I've worked out since high school, but I've never really seen any changes in my body. I started working out hardcore (4-5x week) in the fall of 2007 and cut out most alcohol, and since then I've lost about 15 lbs (which doesn't seem like a lot, but I went from 125 to 110 and I'm 5'3"). I've been on BC since I was 17, and I've always been pretty regular, but for the past couple of months I've missed my period.
I don't really eat much (not purposefully) during the day because I'm really busy and I put other things before food (running a kindergarten classroom is stressful) - honestly, I just forget that I'm hungry unless I make a conscious effort to eat. I go to the gym once a week because I'm so busy, so I'm not really working out too much anymore. My H is worried that I won't be able to conceive if I sustain this weight, so I've been really trying to eat more throughout the day.
I used to take a multivitamin with folic acid and calcium, and I started that up again. We're not TTC now, but we'll probably start next school year, so I'm just trying to get healthy now. I was just wondering if anyone else is going through anything similar.
