That's really interesting! I wonder how common it is for women to worry about this!!! I know it's irrational but I just can't help but think hey I'm going to have a hard time conceiving when the time comes!

Let's hope it's in our heads but you're right in that we won't know until we try! Time to lose those pounds ;)

exactly HAHA i want to feel pretty when im pregnant and enjoy it. Not a huge blob that people cant tell if im fat or pregnant. I have the same theory, once a baby is here i dont know how easy it will be to implement a healthy life style unless one was already established before the baby.

You know whats crazy, I have the same feelings. Which I also have nothign to back that up i mean othe rthan my weight im a very healthy person and my husband has a son from a previous marriage so i know he "works" lol. But i see my friends all struggeling right now to concieve and its heart breakign for them. My best friend took over a year to get pregant with her daughter and thats with fertility medicine. i have two other friends that are going into their second year of trying. You just gotta stay positive , thats what im trying to do. We just wont know until we try =). I'm sure its all just in our heads.

I don't think that's nuts at all! A healthier body = a healthier pregnancy and theoretically, a healthier baby. Plus I think it'd be really nice for people to realize I'm pregnant and not just think oh wow she's fat lol.

You know the cute pregnancy bump as opposed to the slightly enlarged regular belly ;)

In terms of baby weight, yeah there will be that but somehow, and I don't think I'm wrong in this, establishing healthier habits and working on weight loss with a newborn seems a bit harder compared to right now! lol

Interesting about August! I don't know, I have this really bad feeling in my gut that once we start trying, we'll have a lot of trouble conceiving. I really have no reason to back this up as I've never had anything medical to suggest difficulty conceiving just a bad feeling. I see so many women struggling to conceive and I can't help but feel that we're going to have trouble too.

I'm so glad you replied!! I know that sounds funny , but its wonderful to know someone else shares the same goal I do. Our families keep telling me I'm nuts for wanting to lose weight before having a baby. They say things like "your just going to get back out of shape" and "why lose weight to gain weight?" They don't understand that I want this for me to feel healthy through the pregnancy, have a healthy pregnancy, and just be in a healthy mind set.

We've decided August time frame since its a year after our wedding and it just so happens to be when my prescription runs out I know that's an off way to plan it but when we talked About it we decided that made most since.

So glad to meet you and to share the same goal! I'm looking forward to keeping in touch and meeting our goals together :)... I'm going to look up that other team you mentioned.

Well I just joined!

My husband and I have pretty well determined that having a baby is "off the table" until I meet my health goals. Whenever it goes back on the table is when we'll be trying to conceive because I'm pretty baby crazed these days.

Very exciting stuff! Why are you going to start trying to conceive in August? I know some people who plan their pregnancy around work terms and the like. Seems like a smart thing to do!

There's another team called "getting fit before baby" that is reasonably active. I need all the support I can get, thus joining this team as well :)
