Can't seem to find a thread that relates to this - but I am just wondering if there are mums2B who are pregnant and overweight?
I know this is a difficult topic, and there is a view that you should not go out to lose weight whilst pregnant. But I was wondering, what did other M2B do/are doing to make sure they put on no more than they should etc?
I noticed an article on Angelina Jolie who had put herself out to not gain any extra weight at all during her pregnancy, and she looked skeletal.
In my first pregnancy I started off at 12st 5 lbs, and was the same weight immediately after my daughters birth. I then put on about 1st (c6kg) in the first few months after cos we were both poorly. Since then, I have struggled to lose the weight, been diagnosed with thyroid disease but have fortunately not gained any weight so far (I am about8weeks).
I am seeing an endocrinologist who is keen I do not gain much weight at all. She has put me on a low GI eating plan.
Any views? thoughts? Experiences you would like to share?
