My Husband and I are talking/trying about starting a family. In my head i'm like i'm too out of shape to keep up with a little one and im not wanting to have the extra added weight etc etc. Its more then that though. I'v talked to a few Doctors and they all say It would be easier for me to conceive if i lost some weight. Something about my menstrual so forth and so on. We have been trying for 6 months now and is getting pretty frustrating. So good luck to you my friend and if you ever need some one to talk to please let me know.

my friend is trying to get pregnant only she doesn't seem to care about her weight and everytime I see her she is looking bigger and bigger and it upsets me quite a lot. I don't want to say anything to her in case I upset her but it's not good to see at all, she is at least double the dress size she was when I first met her. I won't be trying for a few years yet but one of the reasons I'm trying to lose weight now is so that I don't struggle with my weight in the future and so I don't need to worry about these things closer to the time. Good luck to everyone trying to conceive emoticon

I just started trying this month (had to wait for the end on the Mayan calandar! LOL) started taking prenatal vitamins two months ago. I'm 37 so I'm getting off to a late start but the nurse assured me I am by no means the oldest of my Dr.'s patients. Good Luck to all trying!

If you do a SparkTeam search, you'll find a number of teams for those trying to conceive.

Hope that helps,

I am going to start trying August. I also want to get as fit as possible before I get pregnant. I actually just had my anual on the 4th of Jan and the Dr told me to start taking prenatal vitamins now to get my folic acid.

Take Pride!!

I was just wondering if anyone else on SparkPeople was trying to get pregnant. I joined sparkpeople to help me lose some weight and get into better shape before we get pregnant with our first baby. We have also had some problems getting pregnant. I would love to meet some people on here who are possibly going through the same thing. Sometimes its nice to have a friend who isn't pregnant but trying. Maybe help each other through the tough times of trying to get pregnant while eatting right and getting into better shape.
