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!
