I wanted to share my experiences of being OW & TTC: I had a baby at 19 (20 years ago) at an average weight, but my weight crept up and up over the following years and I was totally unable to conceive, I had every test done and they all came back normal - it wasn't until I lost weight that I did again (my two kids are 17 years apart!)
I'm now pregnant with baby #3, it was a total surprise! I gained 80lb with my son in 2007 and finally decided to shed the weight last summer doing Atkins - lost 30lbs in 1 month, and VIOLA!!! Pregnant again. Fortunately I have no complications with my pregnancies and being OW - no diabetes or HBP, so I'm lucky - but the whole TTC thing......it's worth it to try to lose some weight IMO.
I'm 6', avg weight for me is a size 14 at 215lb. My recent avg. after baby #2 was 280, and during pregnancies I get up to 350+. Now just looking forward to delivering another 10lb baby and losing this weight for GOOD!
Hi, I'm Stephanie.
We are TTC #2. I'm at the same weight now that I was at when we conceived our first. We've been trying for several months with complete charting and my cycles are regular, etc. It would be nice to lose some weight before conceiving but I find it hard to exercise a lot when I'm always wondering if this is the month.
Anyway, I'm here. I'll be checking in weekly at least.
Hi Ladies! My name is Nikki. I am 30 years old. I have a 4 year old and 11 month old! We are trying for final # 3! I was on clomid with ds (#1) and dd was a surprise. My cycles are very irregualr and have I pcos.
I kind of feel like if we dont start trying now, I wont be able to have #3.
I am a Real Estate agent in Southern California and love what I do!
Here's to BFP's and HH9 mo to all of us!
Hi every my name is Larissa im soon to be 30, my husband Isaac is 33. We have been together for 7 years and married for 3 years. I came off the pill as soon as we got married and started TTC, since I came off the pill my "P" stopped. I went to the Dr to investigate to find that I had PCOS and I was insulin resistant. I started diabex xr (metformin) but have had no changes. Its been 3 years and my Dr is finally sending me to a fertility clinic to see about what options we have to concieve, the Dr told me to get my husbands sperm count checked before we go. Never guess what ladies but it came back as 0 sperm count. I cried for a week and thought there will never be a way for us to be parents...We have a appointment in 2 weeks at fertility dr, Im scared what they are going to say we have no sperm no "P" which means no cycle and I am overweight 310lb. Can anyone please give me any advise....thanks ladies

I'm Alex, I'm 23 years old and my DH Jason (2 and I are TTC our 1st! We just decided to start trying last month as we were just married Sept 2010. I have decided to lose some weight while I'm charting my temperature. I'm down 10lbs so far to about 280lbs. I know I have a lot of work ahead of me, but I'm super excited for this journey. I see that this thread isn't super active, but I hope to talk with some of you other PS mommys!! Hope to see a BFP soon!
So My hubby and I are getting ready to start trying. I have been off BC for a couple months now. cycles have not changed I range from 28-30 cycles. I am a little heavy for my height which sucks I wanted to lose some weight but nothing has come off. I run 2 miles 3 times a week and i eat good. so I figure i'm alright.
