Hiya, just wanted to tell you about my friend who also was a "plus size" lady before she fell pg with her first baby. When she was pg and under the care and advice of her consultant she ate a well balanced but healthy diet and once she had given birth found that she actually weighed less than she did before the pregnancy, she then went on to join slimming world and continue her weight loss and she now looks fantastic!. I guess what I'm trying to say is that just because you are pregnant doesn't mean that you have to eat a lot of the wrong type of food, im not at all suggesting that you can "diet" when pg, just that if you are already overweight you don't have to gain exponentially when pg. I'm sure that you could talk to your gp about a healthy eating plan that would be good for you and your growing baby? Lastly if you feel ready to have another baby I would go ahead and try, I took for granted that we would be able to fall pg a 2nd time whenever I chose and nearly 18months later we are still trying and I wish we had tried earlier!
Good luck whatever you decide xxx

You can either find classes(which I'd recommend as the support really helps) or sign up as an online member. Where abouts in the world are you?
