Personally, at ten pounds, yes.  But I get severe morning sickness and will likely lose those ten pounds in the first trimester once pregnant.

I would, 10lbs doesn’t seem like enough weight to put off TTC.

I would, as conceiving would be more important to me

I started TTC at about 30lbs higher than I wanted to. Have been trying to lose weight, and got pregnant within that month that I started losing weight. I’m still trying to lose weight, just not as hard so I don’t jeopordize anything.

I’m actively TTC and 10+ lbs overweight.  I eat healthy and work out consistently but remain overweight.  I want to obviously be as healthy as possible to carry a baby but am not going to postpone TTC until I lose those 10 or so pounds.

I would as well. And losing 10 lbs only took me 1.5 months anyways.

I would start TTC. I can’t imagine working by butt off to loose 10 lbs just to gain it all back with baby. Obviously there’s health benefits to loosing the 10 lbs, but I wouldn’t stress over it.

@CookieCreamCakes:  I dont see why not, unless a doctor tells me otherwise or if my health somehow its not good, like if i have high blood pressure or high cholestorel, that kinda thing that may hurt baby or me while pregnant.

10 lbs is not much. It wouldn’t delay me, for sure. I’m also 6’1″, so 10 lbs is only like half a dress size – you can barely see a difference when I lose/gain that much weight!

Yes, I would TTC anyway. I’m 15 lbs above my ideal weight and we’re still TTC. I figure whatever, it’s just 15lbs.I want a baby more than I want to lose 15 lbs! I figure as long as you’re healthy and do your best to stay healthy that’s what counts the most.

Hmmm… I’m about 100 lbs overweight and TTC, so yes.  🙂

@mrshunnybunches:  Me too. I’m quite overweight, been working on it but newly PG. I am going to do everything in my power to be healthy during the pregnancy.

I don’t think 10 lbs is worth putting off TTC.  Ten pounds shouldn’t be enough to affect your fertility drastically.  I’ve gained about 5 lbs since my wedding and am actively working to lose it while also actively TTC.  Once I get pregnant, I’ll just focus on eating healthy.

@crayfish:  It’s so amazing the difference almost a foot in height makes – I’m 5’2″, lost 10 lbs last year and that equated to 2 dress sizes!  Kind of funny how drastic the difference is.  One more reason why I’d kill to have a few more inches of height!

Yes. Absolutely. I wouldn’t delay and would focus on getting healthier while TYC.
