To try or not to try?!

Saturday, May 14, 2011

I was so determined to lose weight before getting pregnant, but, I've eaten my way (almost) right back to where I started!! How can it take so long to lose weight, yet, in what seems like a blink of an eye, you can put it right back on again!!


I just can't seem to stop eating right now. I've recently come off my contraceptive pill (with a view to getting emoticon) and have become an eating machine!! I eat healthy foods but I'm just eating so much of them . . . I now weigh a full 14lbs more than I did when I had my son . . . and I was made to feel awful by the various medical staff I encountered during my pregnancy then. I had to have an emergency c-section, and was wheeled into the operating room only to over-hear one of the staff telling the rest how fat I was!! Imagine what it would be like now!!

I am desperate to have another baby, but is it safe to actually try to lose weight whilst pregnant?! Or should I just suck it up and go through the 'torment' I went through the first time around? Although, I did lose weight whilst pregnant with my son, maybe, I'll be lucky enough to have that happen again.

Maybe I'll have another baby and then concentrate on losing the weight?! Maybe that's just MAJOR PROCRASTINATION!!

Maybe I should lose the weight and then try to get pregnant?! I just don't think I could wait that long for another baby!

Maybe I won't even be able to get pregnant because of the extra weight I have put on?! Can 14lbs make that much difference?! Having gotten pregnant so quickly the first 2 times (I lost my first pregnancy), I'm almost afraid to try in case it doesn't happen for me again. I would be absolutely devastated!!

Also, I'm going to be 30 next week, and although I know that is still young, I'm very aware of my (very loudly) ticking body clock. emoticon

So, SparkFriends, what do you think?! Do I throw caution to the wind and just go for it, I guess it could take a while to actually get pregnant and I could be losing weight while I wait?! Or, do I put it off, literally putting my childs life on hold, while I sort myself out?!

    get an appointment with the midwife attached to your surgery and get a professional opinion of the risks involved. I'm sure she will assist you and will monitor your weight during the pregnancy. One of my best friends is a midwife and she says the emphasis on minimal weight gain is very high at the moment so there is lots of help available.
    best wishes, Sandra
