Five follies is great! Yay! And I agree with the others about the weight thing, sounds like you have a better perspective on it now too. You go girl!

Brandy,

My BMI technically puts me in the obese category, and I recall clearly when I got pregnant the first time how I was concerned about weight gain on top of what I already was carrying. The doctor said to me not to worry, "babies are the best kind of parasite, they will take what they need from you." I never forgot that. I gained 15 lbs during that pregnancy and after delivery weighed 10 lbs less than when I started. I did have gestational diabetes and that forces you to eat super healthy so that was a factor, but still. Aaron weighed 7 lbs so the new trend to keep weight gained during pregnancy down makes sense to me!

Awesome follies. Clearly, all of your equipment seems to be working. And you are most fertile so soon after having a baby. So, my unsolicited advice is: Just go for it, Brandy. If I scheduled my life around losing the 20 pounds I've been trying to lose for 20 years, well....you get it. There is never a right time or a wrong time to have a baby (it happens when it should)
