Fall pregnant before losing weight

Hi Alex,
Thanks for your help... if you can!! I am hoping to TTC soon. I am struggling with trying to lose weight I am about 90kgs and my height is 185cm so I am overweight. I am wondering weather it is safe and OK to fall pregnant now, and continue with the healthy eating and exercise through out pregnancy and work really hard after bub`s born!! Or should I just put all plans on hold and try to become skinner just to end up fatter...LOL!!

Answer: Hi, Thank you for your enquiry. It is advisable to try to be as healthy as possible prior to pregnancy and if you do fall pregnant you can continue this but ensure that you do eat enough and not try to lose weight but continue to exercise. Best wishes, Alex.
