A tough question
I know this may sound ridiculous, but....
Do the women on this forum think that it would be a bad idea for me to begin cutting as my wife approaches her due date in her pregnancy?
I know that (for good reason) women are extra sensitive about their appearance and sex appeal during pregnancy. Being conscious of this, I have made extra effort to do the little things to remind her what a sexy woman she is and that being pregnant (in my humble opinion) is one of the most beatiful things I have ever experienced.
We are expecting (our first) October 1. That is around the same time I was planning to be crossing back under 10% BF... I have gained quite a bit of weight this year allowing myself to indulge as we have travelled and she has been feeding her pregnancy cravings.(BTW, it's VERY rare steak, fried everything) And yes, I do take full responsibility for my actions, I am not trying to displace blame by any means...
I have considered postponing my cut to November when we can both be getting back into shape together, but I also have the very realistic fear that a new baby will make a gym/diet routine four times as difficult.
So on one hand, I can try to cut before the baby arrives and then do a bulk/maintenance afterward and assist my wife with her recouperation and fitness recovery... or I can try to wait and see what happens in a post-baby lifestyle.
Any help/comments/feedback would be appreciated.
