Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight to conceive


Avatar n tn Regarding dose -- the synthroid dose was increased a little slowly presuming you are an otherwise health 34 yo female -- the average full replacent dose is about 0.7mcg/pound (ideal body weight - roughly) - when you become pregnant the dose will likely need to be increased by about 25% so close follow-up is important.
94902 tn?1330483267 as well and normally weigh about 120 or 125. When we started trying to conceive I wanted to put on a little weight in case I got sick (I tend to drop pounds REALLY fast when I'm sick) while pregnant, so I was up to 130 when we found out we were expecting. I then lost almost 10lbs due to severe nausea. But boy did I ever start putting it back on!!! I have gained back the seven lbs I lost plus 24 more! So my dr.
688450 tn?1259472334 5 years old and I don't want a very big age difference between siblings. I'm 5'81/2 and about 40 lbs over my ideal weight. I have tried in the past to lose weight but always yo-yo-ing up and down until the last 6 weeks or so I've really taken things critically seriously. I figure, I may as well lose as much weight as I can before I get pregnant (in a healthy way) that is. I'm not really sure how long it will take me to get pregnant so I'd better work fast!
367974 tn?1286554758 I waiver around 155-165 pounds (70-75kg) and am constantly trying to lose weight......I doubt the miscarriage had anything to do with weight though......I know alot of heavier people who have had NO problems throughout their pregnancies.....If your not ready to conceive quite yet......your husband should never may change your mind next week!

Avatar f tn often times someone losing 5-10% of their body weight (if they are overweight or not at their ideal weight) will help them to conceive. Congradulations on the weight loss. . .
2100308 tn?1388500439 I'm 7-15lbs over my ideal's not much but my re makes such a big deal. my first Ivf consultation is next week. I'm a bit nervous.
Avatar n tn but then I also made some changes to what I ate which also could contribute to the weight loss. I also take the medication for type 2 diabetes. I also take glyburide for my diabetes. I would say that it is a 50/50 chance whether you would lose weight in the long run as the product wasn't designed as a weight loss product. (but I'm not a doctor so your dr. might be able to tell you what to expect).
385161 tn?1270084818 Usually your body have to be ideal weight to consider healthy. If you body is healthy, TTC is easier and quicker. When you are on fertility medicine, you will gain some weight, but if you gain only 5 lbs and you already feel chubby then imagine when you are pregnant you will gain 25-45 lbs. can you handle that? The main thing is have your body healthy to conceive. good luck to you.
162948 tn?1205256292 I'm Angela and I had the mirena IUD in for 3 1/2 years and had it removed in December 2007 to try to conceive again. I just found out yesterday I am pregnant about 3 weeks along, so it only took me about 2 months to get pregnant. I got a real period on January 9th and Feb. 9th, so I was regular pretty fast, but I had a lot of pregnancy symptoms immediately after removal and a lot of spotting and brown discharge, which the doctor told me was normal.
Avatar n tn I'm in the same situation! I went off depo after being on it for 2 years, last July. I got married last October and I've gained 25 pounds in a year. Mostly in my middle. I'm not a big exerciser, but I haven't changed my lifestyle all that much anyway. I thought it was the "newlywed 15" but it never felt quite right. My doctor never told me about any weight gain once coming off the depo, only while I was on it. I'm going to loom further into this. Thanks for the info!
Avatar n tn L-Carnitine and lecithin may help. 9. If overweight, reduce weight to ideal (this is beneficial for men and women). 10. Take a men's fertility support / good multivitamin. 11. Regular aerobic exercise, ideally at least 30 minutes /day. Jogging, swimming etc. 12. Relations with partner every 3 days.

Avatar f tn I regret that since if (when) my pregnancy dreams come to fruition, I already have the pregnancy weight gain to start from! I've been trying to exercise from the beginning of my cycle until the procedures, but after that my abdomen has been sore and crampy for a week following the IUIs and exercising is uncomfortable. Also - I'm having psychological fears about exercising after procedures.
Avatar n tn not outright rude but lots of offhand comments about how four years is ideal and I'm not going to be able to give my first enough attention. And this is from people who don't even have two children.
Avatar n tn I am looking to hear from women in their mid 40's to mid 50's who are trying to conceive. I am 49 50 in a few months and I met and married my life partner 3 years ago. I have been told that IVF with donor eggs is my only chance. I am perfectly okay with that. I already have 4 adopted children, two grown girls and 2 school age boys so I am perfectly okay with the eggs being donated.
Avatar f tn If your thyroid hormone levels are too low, and you're hypo, it can be difficult to conceive. Miscarriage can also be the result of being hypo during pregnancy. So, it's very important to make sure you're not hypo before you conceive, especially since pregnancy and childbirth can wreak havoc with even properly functioning thyroids. Low maternal thyroid hormone levels can also impact fetal development. Infertility isn't typically an issues...
Avatar n tn It worked for me!! I tried to conceive for a total of 15 months. The month I took Gerital Complete---I GOT PREGNANT!!!!! Just a little too coincidental, I think. They are simply an over-the-counter high potency vitamin---so it's good for you regardless. I have heard too---"There's a baby in every bottle". I would for sure give it a try---I have heard plenty of other success stories besides mine.
Avatar f tn Its three years later and I went to my gp and he told me to lose the weight, which I've been trying to, and it will happen on it's own. I got back on met and asked for provera because I don't want bc. he won't give it to me. he's pushing the lap band which I can't afford and tells me that it's worth going into debt for. I had to get his referral to go to the gyno but I'm nervous that Maybe my gyno will side with my gp.
603463 tn?1220630455 The PITUITARY also produces FSH which tells the follicles (tiny cysts containing eggs) to start to grow. Approximately 30 follicles will begin to grow. By cycle day seven, the dominant follicle is established and continues to grow while the other follicles degenerate. The dominant follicle will ultimately be the only egg ovulated in this cycle. (Ocassionally there is more than one).
Avatar f tn Hello, If you want to conceive in a particular month it is better to determine when you are going to ovulate. There are few easy ways to chart and monitor your ovulation cycle, by keeping track of your basal body temperature and by using ovulation kits. After you ovulate a woman is able to conceive for about twenty-four hours. A sperm can live for three to five days.
180483 tn?1229532768 well i know they say wait after your first cylce to see when you conceive and when your due date is but i'm not worried about that. i just want to have a baby again. i have a 4 year old and that pregnancy went great even considering i broke my knee and had to have surgery at 3 months. it was excellent. i figure i just want to get pregnant again and have a healthy baby and we can wait to get an u/s and it will tell me when i due. but now i see i'm not crazy.
4204073 tn?1361835076 Some tips on how to deal with side and after effects: Back Pain and Muscle Aches There are many over the counter (OTC) drugs for relieving back and muscle pain. Take a Soak If you know someone with one, or there are public ones near you (look in the yellow pages), hot tubs are really helpful to relieve pain. In addition it can improve mood and help sleep. Even without a hot tub, just a hot bath can do wonders.
1277082 tn?1344061420 three months ago we had a serious discussion about what I need to do to prepair for pregnancy, he repeates what we have heard from the doc several times, I need to loose weight. got it, I need to loose weight or I WILL NEVER GET PREGNANT! heres my issue, I have pcos and have known about it for going on 4 years. I was on metformin for several years and have an issue with eating out.
Avatar n tn I am not sure what I did to finally conceive. Or what I did to have a m/c. But, I have changed a few things. PLease tell me what worked for you, so I can maybe see if that is something I am doing.
244315 tn?1209960351 He was drinking up until he found out about it. I am looking into getting a job to help support us. Is it ok to leave him home to go to work? He wants me to be with him but the money is getting tight. We would like to have a baby but we can't do it if he is getting treated. But for me the most important thing is for him to be ok. We want to make the right decision. I have heard that the treatment itself is very hard on the liver. I am concerned that the treatment may do more harm than good.
Avatar n tn Levels can take a year, maybe even more for them to stabilise but it is also the patient who has to work hard at it. You have to recognise your symptoms, use your own judgement, have your Doc work with you through this.If you feel hyper/hypo..tell the Doctor and ask if its possibel to increase/decrease. But always have levels done before a change in dosage. Just by swallowing your Synthroid every morning, not getting regular testing, not logging down symptoms, not researching everything....
Avatar f tn Hi dear ones,, Iam trying to conceive, i used to do yoga. But as iam on this treatment, i stopped doing yoga. Now my weight is 149lbs, (5.2"). My bmi is showing iam obese. Iam on treatment in this cycle. But upto now my doctor has not spoken about this issue? My question is, 1)Can i get pregnant with this weight? 2)Or can i go for weight reduction plans that uses protein therapy, cellulite therapy,body forming...which they say not to give any side effects,,,if i fail to conceive this cycle?
Avatar f tn If you were my patient, I would advise you to try to get fit and be at least close to your ideal body weight. Also, quit any bad habits such as smoking or drinking alcohol if you have any bad habits. Make sure you don't have any sexually transmitted infections too.
Avatar f tn We have tried having sex every day and also every other day during what are to be my fertile days. I am over weight and have been trying to lose some as I've heard it might help us conceive. We haven't seen doctors or specialist or had any testing done since we haven't been trying for a year yet, but wondering if there is anything that we could do to help us conceive? Or if there is something that we are doing wrong? Thanks!
