We had a boy! He was born 5/24/13. He weighed 11lbs. and was 22 inches long! 99th percentile sized baby! Lol! I gained 35lbs with this pregancy. One week later, I'm down 18lbs. Now to keep up the weight loss momentum!

What a great year with a baby! Didn't loose all the weight that I wanted too.... only 25lbs down. Still nursing baby girl (over a year old now), and started Metformin back up in June. Got pregnant with baby #2 in August, and ended the year up 5lbs from this second pregnancy, and 20lbs under where I was at the birth of my first baby. My goal is to stay under that 250lb. mark when my second baby is born in May!

I'm pregnant! I'm so excited right now to be pregnant with my first baby! Through Spark People and the South Beach Diet (along with Metformin for my PCOS), I had lost 35 lbs when I got pregnant. My weight's going up faster than I'd like, but I'm trying to track my food and watch what I'm eating so I don't get into bad habits that will be harder to break after the baby gets here.

I am also trying to conquer PCOS. My body produces too much estrogen, which makes it difficult to conceive. The doctor has told me that fatty tissue produces estrogen, so loosing weight can help heal my body from this syndrome. Also, I was told that in people with a family history of diabetes (which mine has), can sometimes defeat this syndrome by cutting out simple carbs. So, I am starting the South Beach Diet along with exercise to try to heal my body. I've also started taking Metformin on 3/4/10 to try to overcome the PCOS.

    You are doing great! emoticon emoticon great job on your weight loss. It is hard at times. I am just recovering from back surgery. Which is hard with my daughter. I can't really lift her for too long. I just saw my surgeon for a follow up. He said it was key I did not do too much too soon. He said my surgery was a bit bigger than he anticipated. Bonus for me I am pain free! Your little one is getting big. My daughter is just about 22 lbs now.
    I hope your kids feel better soon. I read about a mom using a nose dropper and asking her breast milk and using that as medicine in her kids nose. It brought there fevers down and the kid got better quickly. I also use baby hydra sense sea salt spray. Works really well! Thank you for stopping by my spark page. It was great to catch up with you. Hope to see you around! Have a great night. Hope you get some rest too.
