I just miscarried my baby at 6.5 weeks along. Heartbroken
I'm 43 years old and I conceived naturally without any fertility help. That's why I am saying it's a miracle baby. It is rare to conceive at this age naturally. This will be our second child. I have a son who is 5 years old.
I came over from SparkPeople.com. I lost 45 lbs in the past year and got down to 227 lbs. This is not where I wanted to be before another baby (200 or lower was my goal), but I am lighter and healthier than I have ever been as an adult. At my age, I could not wait until I achieved my weight loss goals before trying to conceive. It all works out and I will get back to it after having this baby. I want to stay as healthy as possible and gain just as much as is right for the baby. I just want to avoid huge binges and try to keep up moderate exercise.
I have a 5 year old boy. I'm due in April, 2013, with my second child. I lost a baby three years ago at 10 weeks along. I am praying for this one.
I've been on SparkPeople every day for the last 14 monhts and have lost 45 lbs in the last year. I will continue tracking my food and exercising at the level I feel good at.. walking daily, dancing a bit, hula hooping, and some strength training.

I've lost 73 lbs total since my high weight of 300 lbs. I'm down to 227 at the start of this pregnancy, which is the healthiest and lightest I've ever been as an adult.
Hi there! I'm Brandiann. I'm on your April 2013 team, and I'm also from SparkPeople! We have a lot of similarities. I also had a babyfit account that I forgot about from my pregnancy with my son. I also had a high weight of 299 (the day I delivered my son), and I went from 277 to 239 this year using SparkPeople. I was not planning on getting pregnant yet and had just come off of birth control 2 weeks before conceiving. That was kind of a miracle because I had trouble conceiving my first child for a few years, and I also had a m/c in 2010. I also wanted to get to 200 before getting pregnant, but here I am. :D So, a very similar story for us both. Best wishes to you and your family during this awesome journey. I hope to get to know you better.

Hi and thanks for the add! I'm in Manchester (born and raised and never left! lol). I was hoping to lose weight before we got pregnant but now I guess that will just have to wait until afterwards. lol. I'm already eating 100 times better than I was before I knew! :o)
