Me and my husband were waiting to ttc until after he graduated from his Master's program and got a job........well, he graduates at the end of April and already has a job lined up! (yay!) I always said, "I'll start trying when I lose X amount of pounds" but now I'm not so sure. I went to the doctor and he said I need to lose around 60 pounds (I'm 5' 8" and 247 right now, he wants me to get down to 190---I have a large frame and a higher testosterone level that most women which causes me to have more muscle mass than most women, so I don't actually LOOK the amount I weigh---) Anyways, I would love to start trying at the end of summer, probably around mid-late August and I am currently on the Weight Watchers program and doing great, but I wonder, "What if I don't reach that 190 goal, and I just going to keep waiting and waiting and waiting?".....How do you make a decision like that? I mean, I know they say "overweight women have increased risk for blah, blah ,blah and blah", but I mean, IMO, I think that increased risk is from women who are eating unhealthy from being overweight and women who continue to eat unhealthy throughout their pregnancy.......and of course, no matter what weight you are, there are risks with having a pregnancy. I just don't know how to make the decision on deciding when to try.........What do ya'll think?
