**Happeewife** — The Bump
TTC after 35


Thanks for your reply below on my "Would you be worried?" post.  It sounds like we're in the same boat.  Sometimes, it's like we're racing against time . . . and time doesn't stop.  MH is great but doesn't really understand what I go through every month.  Somehow he manages to say the wrong thing at the wrong time (like, "We can't have another baby, we're too old! - the day after I get a +opk)

I don't know about you, but I also have about 30 extra pounds to drop from my first pregnancy.  When I went to my 8 week check up after LO was born, my OB suggested that I just accept that my body is in "baby zone" and not do anything major to lose weight - cutting calories too low or going nuts with exercise - because it could throw off my hormones.   At that time, I didn't mind this advice and thought we'd get pg right way (2 under 2 was the goal).  But.... fast forward 18 months and I feel like I wasted all that time when I could've been losing weight.

Thanks for listening.  It's nice to know someone understand the worries and the prayers of "just one more healthy baby and I promise I'll never ask for another thing."  :)

Re: **Happeewife**

  • Hi, I hear you with the weight loss. I'm not obese but would have loved to lose 20 pounds before trying for #2. Oh well ...I got my blood tests back and I felt good that I have good eggs for a 40 year old. (my FSH was 6). My husband is the one with low sperm motility so I just started clomid and hopefully going for a iui this cycle.
