I'm kind of new to SP and preparing to be pg is one of my big reasons for doing this. I need to loose a good bit of weight before we could TTC for mine and the baby's health. Also like with many of you there are other circumstances (finances, job, etc.) that I would like to have settled and taken care of before we had to prepare for a baby. We just celebrated our two year anniversary in September and I'm hoping by our 3rd anniversary this year we will be ready to TTC.

We got married in July, moved into our new house in September, and have planned to give ourselves just a little more time. My husband will wrap-up his Masters Degree next November and we know we don't want to venture into baby-hood until after then, so we will begin TTC in June.

Right now, we are focusing on getting healthy and ready to TTC and I am working to get my body ready to carry successfully. I know it takes so much out of you to carry a child and I want to give myself, and my future child, the best possible chances so we're working down the "3 months before" checklist. On prenatal vitamins (hubby too!), eating more "fertility foods", tapering off the coffee, etc etc.

So, we're working our way there and should be ready to TTC when we head on our 1 year anniversary vacation! =)

I just got married in October, and we moved into our house at the end of September. My husband and I want to have children by the time he's 30. (he's 25 now). So we have a few years to get healthy together before TTC. I have PCOS, so I HAVE to lose the weight and get healthy before we TTC. emoticon

I'm not yet. We're still trying to decide if we really want kids at all, but I don't want to one day decide we do and not be able to because of my weight. So that's why I'm here. I need to get healthy and keep our options open.

Possibly end of 2010/early 2011 we may be ready, we'll see.

We have a 1 1/2 year old. Always thought I wanted my children about 2 years apart. However, I really want to get to a healthy weight and be fit before we TTC again. I think if I do this, I can continue through the pregnancy and have a healthy pregnancy. I'm currently take prenatal vitamins and just taking steps to get healthy!

I'm in the same boat, we both want to get healthier, fix up our house and save a little money. I'm so excited though! I'm reading what to expect before you're expecting and have started prenatals. We're both ready in theory but have some practical things that will be better for baby if we take care of now.

My husband made the statement once that he didn't think he'd be 100% ready until a nurse was putting a brand new baby into his arms... I thought it was a sweet way to hear him be honest about where he is mentally with everything. I don't know if you can ever be 100% sure that you are 100% ready - I think I am, but then have little moments where I wonder.

We aren't right now either, I was late last month and had a bit of a freak out about it....I think we're getting closer to starting to TTC.

How do you know when it's the 'right' time though, really? You know!

My hus is getting settled in a new job and I've just started back at school, so we're still in a bit of flux.

We aren't either altho we are kind of in a "scare" right now..I'm spotting and feel like my ovaries are doing something (don't know how to describe it) while I am currently on the pill. I'm buying a test tomorrow.

But no, we are not trying TTC

I'm a teacher as well, but I don't care what time of year it is when I finally have a baby. I teach high school chemistry and have a few classes that are full inclusion classrooms. Honestly, I've often thought having a baby in the fall would be better for me so that I don't miss out on being available for my students when they need my help around midterms or finals. But when it comes to it, I'll be happy just to have a healthy baby - whenever that time comes...

Originally we were planning on trying at the end of this past summer... but after getting off depo in Feb, I still hadn't gotten a single period. SO we shift our plan to start trying later in the fall, I went through tests and rounds of BC to try to regulate a period, and still nothing. Three weeks ago I finally saw a RE and was told that she strongly suspects that I have PCOS with IR, but with a treatment plan and even a small weight loss (5% might even be enough) I should be able to conceive naturally and have a "normal" pregnancy. Our new goal is to TTC starting in April, but if it gets shifted again, I'm going to just remember that all things happen in their own appropriate time.

We are not trying right now either. We are both teachers and would like to have the child at the end of the school year or beginning of the summer so that we have more time to spend at home with the baby. We are looking at the late summer/early fall. Plus I would really like to lose about 15 more pounds by then.

My husband and I aren't TTC at the moment. My last pregnancy I got so big I was just uncomfortable, but I started out big. I don't want that to happen again, so I'm planning (not hoping, planning) on losing at least 30 lbs before I get pregnant again. It will make everyone involved happier lol.

We aren't TTC right now and probably won't be until sometime next year at the earliest. I told my hubby that I am ready to have kids whenever he is but I don't think he'll be ready for a while. So until he tells me it's baby making time then I'm going to get my self healthy and in good shape so that I can have a healthy pregnancy and can give my baby a great start.

we are ttc but not actively, as in we are not counting days, charting or temp taking.....i want children and would be happy to be preggers, but right now i am relieved that i am not preggers right now as i am the only one working..the thing that really stinks on that is that i cannot express that to my DH as he is 40(i am only 28) and is gung-ho about having kids and ANY talk to the contrary is a fight, even if not intended to be that way.....sorry had to vent a little i guess...

I'm also not currently TTC. It keeps getting postponed due to husband's fear of lifestyle change. We're also getting a bit older (31 right now) so I'm feeling time is slipping away. In the mean time though I'm trying to loose some weight and get healthy in preparation.

We do not plan on TTC until after our 3rd anniversary in May. My maternity coverage does not kick in until 2/2011 so if we got pregnant with a due date before then it would be a financial disaster.

Most people never get past their first wind to know they have a second.

I'm not TTC, I'm not in a serious relationship at the moment. However, i'm a little bit older (31 yrs. old), so I just want my body, mind,and spirit to be ready when God blesses me with my husband. Good luck to everyone with your fitness routine and goals.

we are getting our house in better shape, too...two floors need replaced (one just refinished, one totally redone) and we need to do a lot of painting. We've been working on it while I'm trying to lose weight. My DH is unemployed, but that isn't going to slow us down from TTC when we're ready because we plan on him staying home with the baby. He is working on the painting in his spare time and I help when I have time.

the main thing holding us up is my weight...argh, I'm working on it but kicking myself for gaining over the holidays!

Hi to all!

SO and I are not TTC just yet; we are waiting until after the summer ends. I want to lose some more weight, clean my house out of clutter, and be financially better. 7 1/2 months to go... Glad to see I'm not the only one who doesn't have a bun in my oven...it kept me from posting on here for a while! emoticon

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and haven't had a chance to introduce myself yet, but just wanted to say hi. I am not TTC either at the moment, but a few things, people, and events in my life are really making me think about this. First and foremost I really want to lose all the weight I gained in 2008 before I get pregnant. Sometimes I just want to go for it, but my original goal was to lose the weight, maintain for a while and then get pregnant. Now I'm thinking that depending on how long it takes to lose it, there might not be much maintaining, so hoping to learn a lot from everyone here to help me make some decisions.



Baby on board!! Due June 20th!!

I'm not trying yet either. My husband wants us to wait until I'm healthier and in better shape. I have asthma and I'm a little overweight so adding pregnancy to that could be very bad for me and the baby.

My husband and I plan on TTC in a few months, maybe April or a little after that. We just bought our house this fall and need some time to get ourselves settled in our new routines, mentally and financially, and we're both working on losing some weight and getting healthier. My lowest adult weight is around 170, and that weight felt pretty good for me even though it was a little above the "ideal" range for my height. I might not get all the way there, but the closer I get the better!

I am currently on the pill and trying to lose weight (plus enjoy a little skinny time!) before TTC. I am hopeful to start trying near the end of the summer/early fall. :) My plan right now is to schedule a full physical for August, and if everything is good to go, start TTC then, but if not, give myself a few more months on the pill to try to make improvements.

We aren't TTC at the moment. We just had a baby in May and are probably going to wait until he's 2 before TTC again. Meanwhile I'm hoping to lose the extra weight that I have so that I may not get the pre-eclampsia that I had with my son.

We aren't TTC yet either. Originally we were going to wait until after June 2011 because we were planning a 2 year anniv disney cruise. I may still want to do that but as of now, we are thinking about getting of BC this June and seeing what happens. I may still want to wait until next June because the thought of our cruise makes me really want to wait...ya know, do the married thing for a while longer. But either way, I am going to try to lose weight and keep it off no matter how long it is before we TTC, so I will be here for a while.

I plan on going off BC this spring (March/April), so I'm trying to drop some weight before then. Since I have to be off a couple months before TTC, we're probably looking at summer. That will give me a chance to try out a new bathing suit before getting preggers! :)

We are not trying all that hard right now. I just got on new insurance and this other type of supplemental insurance that will help cover costs of delivery but we have to wait til March before we can get pregnet just so that we make sure we get to use that supplemental insurance. But if it were to happen before that GREAT!! I also thought that losing some wieght would help us get pregnet easier (at least that is what I am hoping for).

We're not TTC yet either. At the EARLIEST it'll be Novemeber when we start, but I think it'll be later than that (like sometimes 2011). Just trying to get to a healthier weight before trying.

We're not technically TTC, but not for lack of want. Dh has a probable brain tumor causing all sorts of issues in that department, and I am ALMOST done IV infusions for kidney disease. I'll be ready in February, so whenever we get DH fixed up we'll be TTC!!!

To many things are going on in our lives right now. We are in the begining stages of purchasing our own farm and we would like to be a bit more settled in with our finances. On top of me trying to loose weight so that I can be healthy durring my pregnancy. No rush, although I can't wait to me a mom.

we said we would start trying after new year's, but since I gained a bit over the holidays I am balking again. Now I am aiming for april or march, depending on how I do with losing some weight. I want to get at least 20 lbs. off. More would be great, but I don't wanna wait forever. The good news is I feel really motivated for now...have been doing well with exercise and nutrition, etc. I'm also starting a free weight loss program where I work that should help a lot. So I am hopeful that I will stick with it and lose some weight and finally really start trying this time...DH and I have waffled back and forth for a year now! But we like to be really certain before we do anything. lol!

We're not actively TTC, either. I have at 9-19 lbs to lose beforehand, and hubby will be going out of town for a few, so I'm working hard on my goals to lose weight, and hopefully, by the time he comes back, we'll be ready. Sometimes, I really wanna just go for it, but I know I would rather have all my i's dotted & T's crossed first.

My husband and I are not yet trying, but are planning on soon. For myself and my future child I want to lose a few extra punds to get me healthier. I can't wait to become a mom, but I know I need to be healthier first. I have been waiting for a long time to be a mom so I hope I lose the weight soon and get to blessed with a child!

My fiance and I want to right after our wedding but because our wedding got postponed to 2012 I won't be TTC til then. Besides, I want to lose all this weight and get fit before having the baby. Not just get fit and have a baby right after...more like get fit and stay fit for a while THEN TTC emoticon

Me either...
hopefully in the next 12 months.
Just started back at school & will be going for 2 1/2- 3 years. Would honestly prefer to have one while I'm in school though because I don't want to start a job & have to wait even longer between general "I just started a job & want maternity benefits already" type issues & also not having the option of slowing down my schedule if need be to actually enjoy the baby.
I can take classes on a opposite schedule as my husband to ease childcare issues, but not work...
I have a lot of weight to lose so it won't hurt me to wait a bit...LOL

I'm not currently TTC. Maybe in another year or two for us. I'm just trying to get healthy first.

We're not either. I have a 3 1/2 yr old and an almost 9 month old. I'm pretty healthy and my weight isn't terrible, not considering where it was, but it does need to be less. We are thinking about 2-3 yrs form now, depending on where we are. We aren't very finacially stable right now. I'd actually really like to have my oldest in school, my youngest looked after and get a good job that will provide me better maternity benefits then my last one. I got screwed majorly and would like to avoid that again. But we definmitely would like a third baby. My last birth experience was so great for me and I just love my babies, I would be honored to do it again.

We are not currently TTC either. We both just started college back and my little boy is only just now on January 12th going to be a year old. I just want to get healthy within the year so that when we decide we are ready I will be healthy. With my son, I had gestational diabetes and had to give myself insulin shots 4 times a day in my belly. The more I can do now to prevent a repeat in my next pregnancy the happier I will be!

I am getting healthier with the intent to be pregnant in the future, but just not currently TTC. Both me and my DH have just started new jobs (I work at the local hospital, and DH is a massage therapist) so we're looking at at least a year before really TTC.

Just wondering if there is anybody else out there like me?

Is beauty lost if you don't take the time to look for it?
