Thought I would post on here. I have always been overweight/obese but I got pregnant with DS reasonably easy. I actually started at 109kg and got to 120 by the end but I got down to 103kg after his birth but now that we are TTC I am back at 113kg
I am so disgusted with myself and I know it is my own fault - I am lazy and dont eat terribly well on the weekends (weekdays I do cook every night relatively healthy foods)
I should put off TTC until I am down to a normal weight but that could take ages and my DH and I both said we didnt want a huge gap between bubbas...
Anyway sorry more of a pity rant than introduction. I might end on a question - I am a size 18 - where did everyone buy their maternity wear for plus sizes? I really struggled especially for jeans that did not hurt and ended up spending the last 2 months in oversized long dresses (summer baby) but wanted to be more prepared if god willing I get pregnant again.
Anyway hope all is going well in pregnancies or TTC....

Hi Miss Tashy,
How exciting 33 weeks not long to go!!! Im sure you will be fine with your weight after your bubba is born.I think breastfeeding really helped me but my son did not take to it and I think that was how I put so much more back on.
I haven't posted on this thread before but just saw Meld85's question about plus size maternity wear. I don't really know what size I am these days as I lost 24kg before falling pregnant. Am now 26weeks pregnant and have managed to only put on about 2kg. I think I weigh about 114kg at the moment. I recently bought two pairs of maternity shorts from maternitywear.com.au. They are so comfy I think I might continue to wear them after bub is born if they still fit ok!
Hi 12roses! May I ask if you've had any complications with your pregnancy due to your weight
Hi Bubbles! No, I haven't had any complications with my pregnancy to the point that the local hospital said that I was low risk and could continue to see my GP for check ups until much later in pregnancy. I think at something like 36 weeks I'll start seeing the midwives at the hospital again.
Hi ladies! Each pregnancy is different. But I would always watch what I eat at take time to keep my body fit daily. And oh yah, rub oils and praying that the stretch marks be minimal.
