I lost 23 pounds right before getting pg with DS and then gained 40 pounds while pg. I had dropped all 40 pounds by the time he was 9 days old but then 30 of it came back over the next several months.
I finally got control over it and dropped 14 pounds before getting pg this time. I am terrified that no matter how much I gain, I will still wind up even heavier after the baby gets here.
I am watching what I eat more carefully this time and have recently gone gluten free so I really hope that keeps me to a healthy weight gain. When I start off with an "obese" BMI, it is hard to see the scale moving up at all. I am currently 16 pounds above my goal weight and I hope that a year from now I can say the same thing.
