Pregnant with #2! (Kylie)

March 10, 2010

I got pregnant by accident with my first child, perfect pregnancy, nothing went wrong. Was in labor for 14 hours, pushed for two. Had a beautiful baby boy, all NATURAL…NOT ONE drug on January 25th, 2009. :) Up until about 6 months postpartum I didn’t loose but 20 pounds after giving birth, and that was from breastfeeding. Finally in about August I decided of being “bigger.” I started doing a workout video every day and doing weight watchers. I lost a lot of inches and about 13 pounds. Then I started doing the Couch to 5k running program and lost more inches and another 12 pounds. So total 25 pounds, which I am might proud of. I got to the 25 pounds in about late October 09. Now I am 5.5 weeks pregnant and am going to gain weight again, right after I got back down 5 pounds below pre-pregnancy weight :( It’s worth it though, since this time I plan on working out the whole pregnancy and eating right, only gaining about 15 pounds, unlike last time…I gained 45…NEVER AGAIN! I also got stretch marks , but I am well over that issue! I am proud I have overcome them. ;)Well hope this is reassuring and inspirational to you all! :)

    Way to go girl and congratulations!!! The couch to 5k program is wonderful and don’t worry about the weight, it seems like you have a very strong determination. Btw, you look great! :D

    so glad You can see Your own loveliness! Also, many many kudos for having a completely natural birth!! I bow to You ;)
    I did as well, and really felt that 9 lb baby. Isn’t the thrill & high afterwards amazing, though? Good job breastfeeding & loosing weight. You should feel accomplished/

    I love the name Kylie. If I ever had a daughter I wanted to name her that, it’s becoming really popular!
