    TTC 1st time... advice please?
    KayPeterson19 posted:
    Hi all! My husband and I have been trying for a baby for about two cycles now. I am 20yrs old. I have been wanting a baby for sooo long! And, now that we are off birth control and are actually trying, it seems like its taking forever... I am overweight. I know that too much weight can affect fertility. I workout every day and have dropped 20lbs. We eat very healthy. The fist day of my last cycle was January 1st and I haven't seen aunt flow since. I have taken pregnancy tests and nothing. I don't know if I should be concerned or what? I know it can take the boby a little while to get back to normal after birthcontrol.

    Any advice?
