So sorry for your loss! I can't even imagine how you felt and feel, although I too was on bed rest due to an injury to my placenta and almost miscarried. I totally stopped posting for a long time as well. I am at week 30 and praying everyday my little one stays strong as it it still so possible I could have complications. I am at my highest weight ever, even more than when pregnant with my Son at 9 months. I am disgusted with myself but can't do a thing until after her birth. I wish you the best in all your future goals and if you don't mind in a couple months when I am able to begin my weight loss journey we become buddies and we can do it together? My goal will be to lose 80 to 100lbs! I am going to check out your blog as well, Take Care!

I totally joined this group with the intention of having a healthy happy pregnancy and now find myself starting over. I believe it was in May and I was at 5 weeks.

Well, shortly after, the morning sickness kicked in and I was a terrible team member because all I cared about at the time was doing anything not to be sick. I never logged on at all after that. All my plans were thwarted and work, life & a complicated pregnancy got in the way. Long story short, I ended up in the hospital on strict bed rest by week 19 when I was diagnosed with an incompetent cervix. Our daughter, Jessie Mae, was stillborn on September 20,2011. Just 3 weeks later. My weight in May was 140, by the time she was born I was past 180. I am now at 168. I had been blogging about the whole experience, you can check it out here.


I am posting this as a means to hold myself accountable for attempting to lose as much of it as possible before we start trying again. My fingers are crossed, wish me luck!!
