It's hard for me to keep it a secret beyond about 8 weeks or so b/c the nausea starts at week 7 for me and isn't as awful as it is for some people, but it's awful for me, lol.

We both know this is only a little step, there's still so much that could be/go wrong, but at least this step is in the right direction.

I actually had lost all my weight from Jonathan, but even before pregnant with him, I was still carrying another 10 pounds or so from Benjamin. So I switched to maternity clothes pretty quick just b/c they were so comfy.

Until my ultrasound says different, I'm changing on Weds.

It is hard to gain weight, especially with your first (by that I'm not discluding your others, but your first where you're getting to the real weight gain part ). I remember it being a real shock to me with my first. After that, not so much.

You will have lots of time to lose the weight (even if you have more kids and wait until after they're all born to start losing!) and get the body you want to have.
That's not to discount your feelings, but just to say you're not alone, and there really will be a time when you'll get your body back!

Re: Pregnancy After Loss (October 1-15)

So I resubbed and replied to everyone and forgot to give my update, lol.

I had my three-hour glucose test today. The one-hour test was just 50g of glucose, but the three-hour one was 100g (but with the same volume of fluid, so it felt and tasted like syrup, whereas the other stuff more resembled Kool-aid). The blood draws went fine. So you know how the blood draws are, there's the needle, then a little tube, then the little cup at the end where they attach the vials? With my first draw this morning, we were chilling out and waiting for the vial to fill up, and then all of a sudden, then little tube "stood up" and then laid back down on the other side, all by itself, lol. The phlebotomist and I laughed. I was able to get a little walking in, in between each draw. If my results are posted online, then I'll be able to see them this weekend sometime, but otherwise, I'll have to just wait for the nurse to call me on Monday or Tuesday with my results (would have been Monday last time but she was off. But I felt decent throughout the test, only a tiny and brief bout of mild nausea at one point.

I did the 3 hour test 3 times with 1DS---high end of normal EVERY time, but they made me keep doing it because he was so huge!

Ugh! Soooo gross!

Passed the 1hr at 18 weeks with 2DS with flying colors (because 1DS was 10lbs, they wanted me to do it at 18w and 28-30w with 2DS)

I hope you pass this one with flying colors and don't have that extra worry!
I've never had to do more than the 1hr herw: The 3hr doesn't sound like fun. At least this year, by the time I get to that point (assuming I get to the Dr office by that point) my FIL will be here and able to watch Levi for me while I deal with the test. Much easier than dealing with him in there too!

quick update- ultrasound was good, baby looks great, and he's a boy. Not feeling 100% relaxed, but it's something. Still praying for all of you!!!
