Do you think its a good idea...

to get to your ideal weight before conceiving? I am within weight limits right now. I'm not overweight nor underweight, however with the holidays present I have recently put on about 10 pounds since summer. My weight fluctuates 10-20 pounds all year, year after year. i'm never overweight or underweight, always within my limits. But I;'m not fitting in my clothes currently like I would like to with the added 10 pounds and wasn't planning on doing any extra calorie-cutting til after Christmas lol. BUT, dh and I have been talking more and more about ttc early 2011. Do you think I should trim the 10 lbs now or wait or what? I don't want even extra weight to lose after the baby if I don't shed it before ttc.

  • Be happy and healthy.

    If you should lose weight to be healthier then yes.
    If your ideal weight is near where you are / not really reasonable (*ideal* is subjective...) then forget "trying" to be a particular weight because it's very likely to change son anyhow~~

    Learn about how to be healthy prior to and during pregnancy, and after.
    (Do you have a midwife?)

    Good luck!

  • I was always told it's best to get to your ideal weight before getting pregnant.

  • not really your not unhealthy because of your weight and if your trying to
    conceive now than concentrate on that joy worry about your weight after
    it's stressful enough to worry about conceiving your weight can weight !!!!

  • Well depends on you're method. I would think if it involved cutting nutrient intake than it wouldn't be in the best interest of the baby butt thats just a personal opinion.
