DYKT: I have been trying for baby #3 since July 2012, so it's been almost a year. I'm not having periods. I'm finally at a healthy weight thanks to SP and I can't get pregnant. I was 30 lbs overweight and conceived both my kids within 6 months. I'm so frustrated and discouraged.

Is it wrong to fight time, to turn it back or push it forward? Time was never mine.

Babyfit is amazing. I will definitely look into those groups.

Challenging as it is to go into loosing weight, I never would have imagined that gaining it would also be a bit as hard to start. I am starting with adding an extra fruit and an extra protein. I am also holding onto the tools I have gained through my weightloss journey to carry me through good food choices.

It looks like you have also settled very well into changing your eating plan,and I am right behind you.

On babyfit, I've found that the due date groups seem to be the most active of the message boards -- but the info there is great. There is also a fit and pregnant team here on the spark side.

I still track my food and exercise here to make sure I'm eating ENOUGH calories and to make sure I'm getting a good blend of nutrients (harder with nausea). I set my weight goal to maintain (getting starting and goal weight the same) to give me the calorie range I should be eating this first trimester, then will add when I get to about week 13 (or whenever my midwife says I need to eat more). Your body is adding all sorts of things to support a growing baby -- extra arteries, etc, extra blood, the system in your breasts that will give you the ability to feed your child. Some get nervous that they are gaining more than a baby weighs, but that system for baby is just as important. And if you keep active and keep eating well (good, nutritious food with occasional treats, etc), the weight should come off relatively quickly. Your time losing weight has helped give you the tools you need to make healthy decisions for a growing baby.

I'm trying to weigh myself less now. I was an every day -- sometimes multiple times a day weigher before becoming pregnant. Now trying to do more like once a week. Last week I weighed more because I was concerned that I was losing. Trying now to take another break from the scale under Friday. Feel free to message me as you find out more. I've seen this sort of discussion elsewhere, too, as those of us who were actively trying to improve health are having to reconsider what that means!

The pregnancy test was inconclusive, with a very feint line (this feint line became visible after the 15min max time on the kit).

I am so glad to hear that you understand so well what I am feeling, since you've had to cross from it. This has given me my morning, and I see the light.

Thank you so much for your reference to babyfit, as I was just wondering and thinking of were to go next. I'm off to baby fit emoticon

Have you taken a pregnancy test yet?
I think it is hard for those of us who have been trying to lose weight to change to a different mentality. I'm just over 7 weeks right now and still trying to wrap my mind around it (although I have done well at maintaining this trimester -- with only small difficulty once pregnancy sickness started). If you are pregnant, I suggest going to spark's babyfit site and reading some of the nutrition and weight gain articles. They are really helpful for beginning the process of changing from weight loss to slow, steady gains.

Hi everyone.

Right now I feel like a 16year old, who has TALK to mom and dad about something.

I have been very absent from FBB and focusing on my weight loss, and I have lost 7.5kg 2.5months. Today is the day that my period should start, and there is no show. I have a very regular 28day cycle and it is on this day that I know what is happening to my body.

I don't know how I am going to confess this truth to my weightloss plan. My plan was to start when I was within a healthy BMI.

Anyway, this is me moving to see my Gynae, and also discussing eating plans for the next 9months. I am very excited with the pregnancy, and very nervous at the same time, about the weight gain, VERY NERVOUS. emoticon

Thank you both ... I'm beyond thrilled I know this sounds silly but I actually have a count down on my phone until our TTC date (3 month 22 days) it's more of a reminder to get my butt going in the gym and eat right but I can't help but get excited every time I see it.

I don't think it's ever too early to start taking prenatals and boosting your body up with all the folic acid you will need. I started taking mine a year out so I'd suggest starting them whenever. I also just take the generic target brand ones. They are pretty cheap and have the essentials in them. Good luck with your ttc journey!!

I'm not sure. I get it from amazon, and get it discounted by doing automatic shipments (the "subscribe" program, I think is what they call it. One bottle lasts two months. I justified the expense by telling myself it averages out to what I was paying for birth contro!

gummy work just fine as long as they have the nutrients you need (they should say). I take the Garden of Life RAW prenatal vitamins (what my midwife recommended). They are more expensive than storebrand varieties, but made from whole foods (not synthetic, which is what some people react to), and contain ginger, so they actually help ease nausea. I'm now 6 1/2 weeks pregnant and have no trouble with the vitamins -- even when most food is repulsive.

Yea i was talking about pre-natal vitamins. I need to get in a habit of taken them. Mutli vitamins usually make me nauseous so I've been eating the adult gummy ones but i feel like that might not be as effective? just feels like the easy way out... but the gummy ones dont make me sick to my stomach.... anyone have suggestions on a good one?

It definitely isn't a fun journey but one way or another we will have children and that's the important part. Are you talking about prenatal vitamins? My doctor said 6 months before. I have been on mine for awhile now.

DYKT when looking forward to TTC, the preparation months feel LONG -- and it feels like the weight will never come off (even as I've lost two pounds this week). A rate that seems reasonable and even amazing at any other time just doesn't feel fast enough when a child is the end result . . . trekking along

Hello everyone! Very happy that I found this team! My husband and I are going to start trying in Feb. First baby, have been married for a year. I've been a spark member for several years but working on being more proactive with it.

XANGELSTEARZX - thanks for posting the vitamin information. My doctor had told me to just keep taking my multivitamin but think I am going to switch to prenatal now. Very helpful post!

We'll be back TTC in a few cycles. My doctor suggested just taking prenatal vitamins to be on the safe side. Many adult one-a-day type vitamins can have added items like insitol that haven't been studied as pregnancy safe or 100% Vitamin A and too much A has also been linked to defects.

Best of luck to you, ghetta! It's never too early to start taking daily folic acid... I would consider adding that to your vitamin if it's not in there, it can only help. I started with 800mcg a day... good luck with your pre-ttc weight loss!

I just started taking prenatals this month; hubby and I start TTC in March 2013. I wanted him to quit smoking for a year before we started trying. He's been smoke-free for over six months now (SO proud of him!) and now it's my turn to make sure I'm as healthy as I can be for baby. Good luck to everyone!

I just joined SparkPeople today! I am planning to start TTC in early 2013. Getting all my ducks in a row now so to speak. I like the idea of one good vacation before (hopefully) children come into the picture. Chocoholic261, I hope that you enjoy your second honeymoon! Good luck to you and everyone out there. Everyone's posts are wonderful to read!

Hi everyone! My husband and I are preparing to TTC our first one, planning on starting in January 2013. I'm kind of getting exited about it, but I really hope I will be at my goal weight once we start. We are going on a second Honeymoon in October before we take the big step. Good luck to everyone on here.

DYK it may seem silly to others, but I'm happy to day that I've been working out everyday for the past 5 days. I've only been a SP member for about a month and since joining my weight has bounced around a bit, but to date I'm down 4 pounds from my starting weight! :)

DDYT today is my last day of birth control! I've got a doctor's appointment in early July to talk pre-baby stuff, and I'm on prenatal vitamins. Nearly ready for TTC!

Michelle-
I feel your pain. I had a hard time concieving before my first, and had a miscarage while others around me were having babies like it was no big deal. After two years and some fertility treatments we were pregnant and that time it was a success. I now have been off my birth control for over 3 years and we have been actively try to conceive for about a year. I gained a lot of weight with the fertility treatments last time so I want to loose that weight before I try them again. I think you are also making a positive step by trying to loose weight. Good luck and stay strong. emoticon

Thanks Mindy,
I am just happy that I am finished with school, got my degree in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education, however do not currently have a job ( Thanks Economy) I recently finished a job as a nanny for a 2 year old. I think being home is making it worse because I think, If I had a child It would be perfect right now and I'd more likely be getting out and doing thinks ( free things) like I did with the little girl I watched.

@KARICWU ....
I understand how you felt I was like that before we got pregnant with my first! It seems everytime I turn around someone else would be pregnant and even since i had a m/c Last yr in march its been that way. Its hard and I feel jealous of them.. my hubby doesnt understand but i guess cause guy feelings seem so easily shut off!
Just be patient the wait is worth the results.. maybe discuss it with the hubby and if financial you guys can afford it while he is in school then start trying. if not wait.... since he in school its gonna have to be if he has the drive to wanna complete school with a newborn it hard but do able. I was finishing school when I had my daughter I had like a 1 and 3 months to finish school when she was born and was in the middle of classes when I had her but I also finished my degree online which made it a little easier but was stull hard working full time, being a wife mom and being able to keep up with the house chores and school. It was hard but I wouldnt change it for the world!


Goals Set for 2012:

By 5/10 - Reach 220 (I was 1.1 pound off!)
Reward: Didnt follow diet for mother's day!

By 7/2 - Reach 205
Reward: San Diego Trip

By 9/13 - Reach 190
Have a nice romantic dinner with Hubby

By 12/5 - Reach 175
Not sure what I would like to reward myself with here.. Maybe a new outfit for my birthday!

End of Year I would like to be down to 170

I'm having a really hard time waiting to have a baby, but I know I need to loose this extra weight in order to be a healthy mommy during and after pregnancy. My hubby and I will be Married 1 year next week and I also turn 27 next week. I really don't want to wait too long to have a baby, however my hubby is still in school and wont finish for another three years. I am having such a hard time wanting to be a mommy, especially looking on facebook and every three seconds one of my friends is pregnant, posting baby pics or going into labor. I had a breakdown last week because I want to be a mommy so badly.

I heard from a friend of mine who just had her baby a month ago that those who get sick on the pill (like her and me) will also have a tough pregnancy as far as sickness goes. Has anyone else been told this? Because my goodness was she sick, through her whole pregnancy. I'm just wondering if that's what I have to look forward to.

DYKT: Doctor said stop pill 1-2 months before start trying. Good to know, because we are not quite ready. She also said prenatal pills a few months before, I had started taking now but slightly nateous. She said this means I will likely be that way pregnant if vitamins doing that and for now just take them a few times a week and women's high potency.

DYKT: I got my IUD out today! My midwife told me that although I could start being fertile this month, it would likely take 6 months until my cycles are completely regular. We planned to start trying in April or May, but now I know that it may take a little longer to become successful. More time for me to get on track with a healthy lifestyle!

I have been soda free now for 4 days which is a long time for me. I am use to just getting a soda whenever i am thirsty at school. I have started drinking water instead and have realized that i feel better when i drink water over soda.
