    Default Pregnant and recovery from an ED

    Hi I was wondering if anyone out there is pregnant and recovering from or suffering from an eating disorder? I was in recovery from bulimia when I became pregnant and lost weight through horrible MS. Am struggling a bit to get back on track (I have external support) but would like to get done more support in an online community.

    I suffered from anorexia and am struggling. I'm ttc and it's difficult. Even though I'm as "recovered" as I'll ever be I've accepted that I'll never be "normal".

    From when DH and I ttc at the start of the year I've tried to be healthy and as a result I've put on some weight. I've been really struggling with it.

    I'm here if you want/need someone to talk/vent to x

    Thanks!! We ended up conceiving through ivf as I am mid 30s. I’m seeing a great psychologist now as I think the focus on weight in pregnancy, plus my weight loss in the first trimester putting me in energy and weight deficit... has been a trigger. It’s crazy as I know weight gain is 100% the best right now but it’s still scary...
