Hi everyone, I'm new to this community. I have a fairly long story but I'll try to keep it short. About a year ago my DH and I decided to start trying for a baby. I got pregnant during the first month to our surprise. Unfortunately it ended in a miscarriage at 8 wks last sept. We waited 7 months to try again for several reasons. First, I wanted to make sure we were ready emotionally to try again and second we were in the middle of relocating to Canada. We lived with my in-laws for 6 months while my hubby was looking for a job. (My in-laws are the nicest people on the planet and I love them so much. I'm really greatful for them) Its seemed that everything happened all at once. We moved to Canada and had no house, Stephen was unemployed, and we lost the baby all in 2 months. It was really hard on both of us but I think it strengthened our marriage. So Stephen started working in Nov and we moved into our new house this past Jan. We started trying again in April. Since it was so easy the first time we thought it would be that easy again. After 3 difficult months of waiting I'm still not PG. This past cycle was a little strange though in terms of cramps. I went to my Dr. this past weekend and she ruled out everything it could be except endometriosis. She said that it could make it more difficult to get preg. She also told me that if I haven't concieved with in 6 months of trying (its already been 3) then she will do something. I don't know what exactly that means.. Tests? fertility drugs? in-vitro? I never thought I'd be looking at those as an option. I always thought it would be so easy for me to have a family. But its been a whole year since we made the decision to start a family and instead of holding a baby in my arms I find myself here. I guess I'm just looking for comfort and encouragement. Sorry this is so long, but that's my story.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
