I went to a maternal fetal specialist this week because my daughter died at 27 weeks and her cause of death is unknown at this point. I thought the MFM might be able to help determine the cause and help with the next pregnancy. She has ordered a battery of tests and hopefully one of those will give us a reason and a prevention for the next pregnancy. I did begin to have BP problems as my pregnancy progressed and now my BS levels are higher than they have ever been before (normally 60-70 fasting to 95 last week). I told her I was concerned about both pre-e and GD in a new pregnancy. She agreed that it was a possibility and said to lose some weight before I did get pregnant to try to help, if possible. We're not really going to delay trying, but I am going to try to lose some weight before. Anyone else trying to lose weight while trying to conceive?
future_momma, i get that all the time too! last week i was on way home from doc when he told me i have pcos and decided to junkfood up to self soothe and a lady at supermarket asked if i was expecting and i flipped out! i said "no, im just fat,but thanks for pointing it out!!"
I carry it more in my arms and legs. I've always had somewhat of a waist. After I delivered it was pretty much back to normal right away. (My wedding was 2 weeks later.) I'm having trouble trying to exercise though because the muscles are still sore. When I walk to much (or even move the wrong way) my back/ side/ stomach start to hurt.
Very sorry to hear about your little girl. I thought I'd chime in since I have some experience on the trying to lose weight side. After years of struggling trying to lose weight and getting frustrated, I lost 46 lbs from 2009-2010. I thought I was eating healthy but then I started using this website (caloriecount.about.com) and actually recorded what I was eating and found out that frequent snacking and eating late dinners were causing my weight gain. I lost the weight just by drinking more water, eating a lighter dinner (around 7 or earlier), watching serving sizes of what I was eating, and trying to eat breads/rice with only 1 meal a day (preferably lunch). Don't give up and stick to it!!
