Tomorrow I will officially start my second trimester of my second pregnancy. I am so happy about this. We are expecting another little boy in October and there was a time when I really did not think that I would get to add a second child to my family. My weight was extreme, and I did not feel that I could survive a pregnancy- literally. I am still very overweight, but I am considerably smaller than I was when my son was born eight years ago. I am so looking forward to being a mom with more energy, a mom who can hope to keep up with another little person.
Right now I am actually having a small problem in that I have continued to lose weight through the first trimester- nearly 13 pounds. Both my OB, and the PA I see for post- gastric bypass follow up assure me that this is nothing to worry about- I have had morning sickness for two months, and the baby gets his nutrients before I do. It is a very strange experience though, to worry that I am losing too much weight!

  Worrying is a very natural part of pregnancy. Even the normal things make us worry because we want so badly to do everything right have have a healthy baby. Congrats on the pregnancy!!! It's really exciting!

    Worrying is part of being pregnant! As long as the baby is healthy and gaining weight and YOU are becoming healthier--losing weight, eating well, and exercising-- at the same time, you are fine! I'm sure your doctor is monitoring everything. Distract yourself by shopping or making something for the baby. And don't forget to spoil the little guy you already have! After all, he's going to be a big brother soon! emoticon

    Congratulations on your new addition.

Don't worry about the weight loss. I ended losing 4 pounds having my first child and she was absolutely perfect. Still overweight I had a second two and a half years later and gained 3 lbs with her, but lost it breastfeeding within the first month!

    Congrats on your new little boy! I have a 7 year old son (and a daughter who is 11) and we're expecting another boy in Sept! Glad your doctors have assured you that your weightloss is ok for baby. And yeah, it is weird to *want* to gain! I know!!
