trying to conceive...

three years ago i was pregnant with my first child but had a miscarriage at almost 3 months... since then i've kinda let myself go due to depression... but what i hadn't considered is the fact that as time has gone on and not caring escalated to a lifestyle which has now grown to be a problem, i've been actively hindering my chances of being able to conceive... so now, armed with determination, i'm setting out to lose weight for that reason and also to boost my confidence and be more healthy in general... anyone else in the same boat?

Educate yourself on Natural Family Planning.  It is highly effective in both avoiding and acheiving pregnancy the natural way with no chemicals or anything that could harm you or the baby.  It is simply a method in which the woman must become attuned to her body to recognize the best days to acheive and the best ones to avoid pregnancy.

Hi, I too have been in exactly the same position as you. I start my diet tomorrow. Been busy shopping for healthy foods etc. I want to get pregnant as well but acknowledge that I need to lose weight before I get pregnant so I can have a healthy pregnancy and baby. Good luck xx

Hi Annie, I recommend the paleo diet to anyone who is trying to conceive.. do a search on paleo diet and pregnancy or trying to conceive.. you'll find lots of babies came from eating this way.. You'll lose weight, feel great and heal yourself.. it will help enormously with depression and regulating your hormones. Check out marksdailyapple.com he has a forum I'm sure you'll find lots of people there who are exactly in the same place as you are. hope this helps! I started the paleo diet and got pregnant the next month :)

I don't know anyone on this forum who is in your situation just now.  I wonder if you might want to try posting on one of the pregnancy forums.  I think they have one for those trying to conceive.  I can help you find one, if you like.

That said, this is the Weight Loss & Dieting Community, so however we can help, we'll be glad to........
