Hey everyone! Can I join in? I somehow found this thread, and I joined the forum just so I could get support from here.
Brief back story: I have one son, age 20 months. I developed pre-e at 34 weeks and delivered pretty much as soon as being diagnosed. He spent 15 days in the NICU, and has been perfect ever since (although small).
I just have had to stay on BP meds (small dose of Labetalol), and in meeting with my OB, the best way I can control what happens next pregnancy is to lose weight. Of course, this would be good for me for my entire life, as I am very overweight. I try to stay active and portion control, blah, blah, blah, but this time I truly am determined that I am going to lose weight. My doc wants me to lose 80 lbs (!!!!!!!!!!) to "eliminate" the risk factor that my weight presents. I am just thinking I'll start with 40 and reduce the risk, and we'll see how long that takes me.
Anyway, can I be part of your group?
