    Is anyone else waiting to try until December onwards? We are planning number 2 but want a few months to get fit and healthy to prepare for trying but finding it so hard to wait! Had a c section first time too so also pretty nervous about potentially having to go through that again

    Yes! I have a high bmi so I'm on a really strict diet to reduce it. I'm hoping to lose 2 stone by Dec (lost 3 so far). I have pcos so it's hard going. TBH I'm dreading ttc already as I know with pcos it's going to be a long and hard road!

    Hi BookwormK - wow you lost 2 stone already?! That's amazing, I'm finding it hard to shift the first few pounds but I am counting down the months to TTC and although I'll try not to symptom spot I'm sure I will. At least December isn't so far away now!

    We were trying but have decided to take a break til December so we can both lose some more weight and I have health issues to deal with. It's so frustrating but I think better in the long term to start trying when I'm not so overweight. Lost 7 stone already and hoping to lose another stone and get down to 11 stone by december. I'm so impatient.

    I've yet to brave bringing up TTC with hubby as he's been adamant he wanted one (so have I till recently). February would probably be the earliest I could start due to summer commitments. I also had a section and I would have an elective as I feel it's safer, but the thought of it makes me really nervous. Also scared of getting pre-eclampsia again. Sometimes feel like I have the added pressure of my mum as I don't think the grandchild hints could get any more obvious! I'm getting serious pregnancy/newborn envy these last few weeks! Well done to anyone whose achieved weight loss. I really need to lose 1,5 stone before I do anything!

    I see this original thread was for Dec/Jan last year, but we're going to try for our second after Christmas this year. Pretty exciting!
