The day I found this site I was about 12 weeks into my 7th and VERY unplanned pregnancy. I had spent the preceding six weeks alternately in tears and vomiting. The only other person who knew I was pregnant was my husband. I was too scared to tell anyone else because I was worried how they would react and I was worried that because I was "over 40" that there may be something wrong with the baby. And I was worried that after we had the amnio, we may have had to choose to terminate the pregnancy and I wasn't sure how anyone, least of all my husband and I, would react to that. I was also very overweight.
I was desperately alone and very frightened but I wanted to be happy for the baby's sake, and I needed to be healthy for both our sakes.
BabyFit had everything I wanted. I started to follow the exercise routines and was using the nutrition tracker daily. I was a bit concerned because I never seemed to be able to eat enough to reach all the targets every day, but sometimes I came close and I figured that was pretty good.
After awhile, I got up the courage to post a message on the board. For the next eight weeks you guys took the place of my friends. You were the only other people who knew I was pregnant.
