Dieting after Stillbirth!!
Well here i go again. I thought that my weight loss issues were behind me. I had gastric bypass surgery in 2000, and lost 200 pounds. Now i find myself in the very familiar place of being overweight.
I got pregnant september of last year. after 10 years of being to overweight to get prego, here i was in the position that i had dreamed of.
Everything was goin fine. Not to many preg problems. Just the usual. But at 21 weeks my worst fears came true. I knew that since i have had Leep Procedures done in the past few years, i was in danger of havin an incompetent cervix, but the doctor i had told me that I would be fine since it was my first preg.
We went to the 'big' ultrasound only to find that my cervix was changin. we went to the doc and i was 2-3 cm dialated and my membrane bag was bulgin into my vagina. I was at risk of my water breakin.
went to hospital only to find that i was leakin fluid and had to be induced. 7 1/2 hours later our son, Dylan was born.
We got to hold him and say goodbye. but there is never enough time to really do that.
So now here we are at the crossroads. I gained weight while i was preg and then 20 more pounds after we lost him. And now I think i have stoped ovulating again from the weight.
So here i am, startin to try to lose weight as we try again for our second child. Hopefully by losing weight , we can get preggo again.
Thank u for the ones that took time to read this, sorry it ended up being so long!!!
Many hugs, nikki
