before i found out i was pregnant I was in recovery for bulimia. when i found out I was expecting I upped my nutrition and ate extreemly healthy (no bulimic actions taken), i never had the urge to eat junk or binge. However over the last two weeks that has gone out the window and i cannot stop binge eating, mainly on carbs like bread and cerial but I have also been eating other bad foods that I ushally never eat, and then end up eating everything and anything i can get my hands on...eating upto prob 5000 cal a day!! I am worried that I am seriously going to hurt my unborn baby. I Know how bad this is for both me and the baby but i cant seem to stop. I am only in my first trimester and scared of the consequences if this continues. I do also have lots of fruit and veg, but undo all that good eating with all the crap i eat!!! Does anyone know of the effects this will have on the fetus and can binge eating cause a miscarrage? Also has anyone had this problem and can give me any steps to overcome this. I feel like such a horrible person as i am the one growing a beautiful life and i am treating my body badly.
