I’m relatively new here, though not necessarily new at this. This is my third pregnancy, but I currently have 1 beautiful child. I was already overweight upon my first pregnancy. Which was not like me, I was a gym buff, still am actually. But sometimes things get in the way. So what got in the way? Well my mother was ill, and then passed away just before I got to tell her I was pregnant. Then I lost pregnancy # 1. I began to lose the weight quickly then came pregnancy #2. During the pregnancy despite not eating a lot I put over 40 kilos, yes over. It took 1.5 years to take it all off. The first 6 months of which was relative easy as some of it was fluid and I was breast feeding.
Now we’re at pregnancy #3 and again over weight. I’m going to the gym. But does it make a difference? No! However, at the moment though I’m regarding myself as lucky, as I have managed to maintain for the time being. Granted I’m only 8 weeks pregnant, but to look at me you would think I’m 5 months in. The joys of it not being the first. So here I am joining in to give support to others like me, who are overweight and Preggy. Congrats to you all, I hope your pregnancies going quickly and pleasantly
