It took me 12 or so years to get back in shape after babies, but dont let that scare you. I wasn't working out and ate like crap. Keep working out and loosing now. When you get pregnant unless there is some problem, you should be able to keep going. Even if you have to ease up you can keep walking and heck, that is great to do when it gets closer to time to deliver.

it doesn't necessarily take a year to get back to pre-pregnancy fitness..especially if you continue to eat well and exercise during pregnancy.

Pregnancy has come a LONG way from the days when women were encouraged to sit on the couch and eat bonbons for 9 months.

I don't have kids (and don't want any) so my response may be biased. There are a lot of women that will exercise right up until it's time to deliver. Some time back, a woman that was 9 months pregnant ran a marathon and then within 24 hours had the baby. Apparently, she even ran faster than her husband. There have been other stories of similar situations where women exercised while they were pregnant. I think that a lot depends on the person when they get pregnant. Some women may be able to exercise up until a certain point. I think that if you do what you can to get into shape and be healthy that it shouldn't be a problem. I also think that many of the responses you will get will be 1) it depends on the woman, 2) you're not pregnant yet, so take care of yourself right now, 3) when and if you do get pregnant talk with your doctor about exercise. As you get farther along in the pregnancy and continue to go to the doctor, you'll know if you can continue to exercise. I assume that the doctor would be able to tell you if there are certain exercises that you should or shouldn't do.

Hey,

Okay so I've been up and down with my weight since I was a teen. My first time I was like 17 and dropped 20 lbs. The second time I was 22 and dropped 38 lbs and now this is my third time dropping 35 lbs but this time I'm planning on how to keep it off. I'm getting married next year, I've been with my fiance for 6 years. We have talked about having children but at the same time we aren't sure if its right for us or not. If the time comes we will see how the first one goes. But if I really work hard at eating healthy and exercising, then I get pregnant, I feel like that will ruin my accomplishments and starting over to lose weight after the baby would be hard. I read somewhere that it usually takes a year to get your pre-pregnancy body back. I have low self esteem and confidence I think thats why I'm thinking about this.

I would like to know your opinions on this. Maybe I shouldn't get pregnant just take care of myself and do whatever I want in life OR get pregnant, be patient with the weightloss and enjoy the time with my newborn baby.
