second pregnancy (Anonymous)

January 31, 2008

It’s a boy! 30 weeks pregnant with my second. My first born was delivered by emergency c-section, and I’m hoping not to go down that road again. The stretch marks were barely noticeable and I was 20lbs away from my previous pre-pregnancy weight when I got pregnant this time! The weight was hard to lose, as I gained 60lbs and it took 4 years to lose 40.. So far I am happy with the way I look except for the pregnancy curve that has taken shape on my back. I’ve gained 37lbs so far. Hoping to breastfeed!

    You look beautiful and you’re doing great with your weight! I hope that you do try to breastfeed. It’s awesome for many reasons including the fact that it helps you to lose post-baby weight. ;) Congratulations!

    You look great.

    Good luck with the VBAC! Do everything you can to get the birth you want. Exercise every day without fail, eat super-healthy, educate yourself about the physical and emotional course of labor and breastfeeding, write a birth plan and make sure your caregivers know its details, have loving labor support, delay going to the hospital as long as you can when you are in labor, examine any risks and benefits of drugs and anaesthetics during labor as they can often lead to a cascade of interventions that you might not want or need. And, believe in your body and its ability to birth!

    haven’t seen too many comments from guys on here. I would like to say that you look incredible and don’t bother about the weight. Hope you have a normal delivery and a healthy child. Breastfeeding is a wonderful thing for the baby

    I too, hope you try breastfeeding. The bonding between you and your baby will be amazing. Plus, it’s the best nutrition for baby, and good for mother too. Right after birth, breastfeeding helps your uterus contract. And babies have a strong instinct to start nursing then. So make sure you are allowed to put him to breast right away. Good luck with your birth and feeding!
