Losing weight and falling pregnant Rss

Hi Alex,

I have a 12 month old son and I have not lost the pregnancy weight yet. I wonder if you can please tell me whether it is advised to lose the weight first before trying for baby #2 or lose the weight after #2? I am only planning on two pregnancies and I would like them fairly close together.

Thanks.

Hi,
Thank you for your enquiry. It is best not to be overweight before you are pregnant and you tend to gain weight during pregnancy so you will have even more to lose afterwards. It also puts more strain on your body if you are overweight during pregnancy. The time that you lose weight is really up to you but it is best to be in optimum health before you get pregnant. Remember that long term breast feeding is a great way to use up the calories.

Best wishes,
Alex.
