View Full Version : Pregnancy After SB?

This is kind of a random question... but I was thinking last night about this and wondered if anyone else has had a similar experience.

In May 2005 I started SB phase 1, was well into phase 2 and had lost about 8 pounds total when I got pregnant with my son (born February this year). We had been trying to conceive for 12 months by that time.

I started SB again (phase 2 this time - I was breastfeeding) in June, lost about 4 lbs and at the end of July learned we were (surprise) pregnant again!

Maybe it's just a coincidence? I do know there are women who get relief from PCOS from being on SB, but I don't have PCOS. Just curious if anyone else has had this happen?

(Makes me leery to go on it again without some heavy-duty contraception :lol: )

I imagine being healthy had more to do with conception than the diet. Others may have different opinions.
Your son is a real cutie. Do you take orders? :lol:

I agree with Ruth. And you have a beautiful baby.
