  • It'd probably be better to get the weight down first, but base your decision more on what's going on with the rest of your life, such as your finances, relationship status, etc. Good luck! :)

  • I wieghed 150 when igot got preggo with my first and got up to 200 than after i had my baby 5months later i got preggo again and i was 167 and got up to 210. Then i started loosing all my wieght and got down to 135 and 3years later im now preggo again and wiegh 150. If your ready to get preggo again i say go for it then lose the wieght especially if this is your last.

  • I have heard people swear by getting pregnant around your youngest's 2nd birthday, so that you youngest is almost 3. Personally I like my kids closer and love 18 months apart. :)
