Hi girls,

This is more of query as I'm not pregnant, but am a fuller bride and wanted to see/hear what others have advised in regards to getting pregnant when you're 16+.....

How hard/easy have you found it?

    I know doctors always recommend being within your 'advised' weight range when ttc. I would say as long as you're eating healthily and getting a good intake of vitamins, with enough sex (yay!) there's no reason why it shouldn't happen!

    I know when I was 'larger' I suffered really bad symptons of IBS/PCOS (never officially diagnosed) but since losing some weight my problems have got much better, so i guess it doesn't hurt. In any case, it'll be less strain on the body, when you are carrying you+baby weight around.

    Not sure if I made the point, but eat healthy, drink in moderation and don't smoke!! image

    I'm a size 16 (18 on a "fat" day!) and I had no problems, I got pregnant on the second month trying. Just make sure you're taking your supplements and eating well and getting enough sex! If you are already larger they will advise you not to put on much weight whilst pregnant (I think they suggested a maximum of a stone to me). I am 13 weeks pregnant and the same weight at the moment.

    Good luck!

    I was a size 16 when i got pregnant, was a size 20/22 after i gave birth. I put on 4 and a half stone!!! took me over a year to lose most of the baby weight. I am definitly going to be fitter and healthier before i have another one ( touch wood)!
