Mom of two girls under the age of two.
My name is Hannah and I am 31 one years old. After six miscarriages we finally got pregnant in Aug of 2007 and I had to go on progesterone to carry my daughter to term, born May 21, 2008. I started my pregnancy out at 207 lbs and gained 21... So I weighed 228. At 4 weeks postpartum I weighed 197 a 31 lb loss. I was estatic. Over the next 11 months I worked out/ate right and breastfed. I gained 3 lbs. On April 23, 2009(two days after DD#1 turned 11 months old) I found out I was preggers. Continued to breastfeed untill she was 14 months old, went on progesterone again to carry DD#2 to term. Gained 36 lbs 236 the day I delivered her (thankfully she was a 10 lb 3 oz baby) I suddenly felt better about the weight I had gained but it was the heaviest I had ever been. At 4 weeks postpartum I was back down to pre pregnancy weight which was 200 lbs. I am 5'3" and always discouraged by my weight. I would love to be 125-140. I have very abnormal cycles 10 days to 62 days apart. They normally range from 48-62 days apart. I have very course, dry, and stringy hair. I feel just plan unattractive at time. I am planning to follow a Low GI "diet" I hate that word so I am going to say Low GI food plan for life. I am hoping it helps
