I would like to loose some weight before then, at least 20 lbs. I am a member of Curves but haven't gone in a while due to lots of things going on this summer like visitors and travel. I did it for 2 months going 3-5 times a week and didn't loose a pound. I didn't follow their diet because I was nursing and the book didn't mention if it was safe for nursing.<br>
Dh will be starting Atkins soon (probably as soon as his brother and sil are out of town). I've not planned on doing it until I talk to the Dr which will hopefully be next week.<br><br>
My other concern is dd. She is 16 months this Friday. She eats very, very little solids. She was eating some things okay but we have found she has a milk protein allergy and the only things she liked are milk based. So for the last few weeks she will only taste things. By that I mean she will pick up a cracker and suck off the flavoring or salt. If its soft food she will just play with it and not eat any. I'm worried that getting pregnant may decrease my milk supply and that could be disasterous for her. I will post in more detail about this on the Toddler board.<br><br>
So what advice do you have for me?

What a wonderful time to ttc! I love Christmas <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I don't have much advice to you as I am currently ttc#1. Hopefully the "seasoned" mammas will have more advice for you on your dd and her feeding dilema. Is she eating food that is softened? Like homemade "baby food" If so she is likely getting a lot of the necessities there. Sorry not more helpful. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:<br><br>
Good luck and hope everything works out for yo and your family!<br><br>

IKWYM about trying to lose weight before pregnancy. With dd I was about 20 lbs over my ideal weight, and it was no fun. I ended up gaining nearly 50lbs throughout my pregnancy and then was carrying around an extra...yikes! You do the math! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"><br>
Hoping to do a little better next time 'round.<br><br>
No suggestions for the toddler eating thing, just that my dd ate like Amara a few month back, and is just now getting into the grove of real food at 20 mos...so it will get better soon, I think. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> Good luck on your TTC journey!
