So dh and I wanted to have another baby so that ds and the next baby will be about 2 years apart. I gained a lot of weight with the last pregnancy and had a hard time (mostly due to laziness getting it off)

So I made a deal with myself that I wouldn't ttc until I lost all the weight. I want to have a healthy pregnancy and I know being overweight puts you at some risk.

So for the past 3 or 4 months Ive been working really hard to lose weight and have lost almost all of it. My body looks different than it did before ds1. But I think it looks good.

So anyways what Im getting at is, now that Ive lost the weight to have another baby, Im afraid that if I get pregnant again, Ill get fat again.

Am I making sense? Probably not. Im so confused.

It sounds to me like you're not quite ready to be pregnant again. I think it's important to enjoy the time between your babies. I know a lot of people want to hurry up and get all their pregnancies "over with", but I think it's better to wait and enjoy each one.

Ben is now 2 1/2. We had planned on starting ttc a few months ago, but dh and I are in school, and we thought he'd be working by now, but he's not yet. I'm really enjoying this time between babies. Ben is weaned, and I'm off BC, and it's really nice to actually want and be able to have sex. Dh and I both know that once I'm pregnant again it will be 2 years or more before this comes around again.

My advice is to enjoy your slim new self for a while and wait till you're ready to be pregnant again. you'll enjoy it so much more!
