Weight & getting prego

I gained 35lbs with my 1st child, we want another one soon so we can have them close together, so far i have only lost 20lbs. My average weight is 20lbs from what i am now. I want to lose the weight before baby #2 b/c I'm afraid I will get so big that it will be to hard for me to lose. Do you suggest losing more before baby #2 or just go with it???

  • Just go with it...worry about weight after you're done having children =)

  • It's up to you. I was significantly overweight when I got pregnant, but I only gained 12 lbs being pregnant. I've lost some of the weight now, but still in progress. I had always hoped to get to my ideal weight before getting pregnant. Hopefully for next time. if you're only 20 lbs overweight, I wouldn't stress too much, just wait until after the next one to lose the weight, and try not to gain a ton with the next pregnancy.
