Hi everyone, I'm new here. I'm browsing the internet for family planning advice as my husband and I have decided to begin trying for our first baby. Today I booked an appointment to have my contraceptive implant removed. I have gathered all the info I need to know about how best to go about accurately trying to conceive after having the implant removed; and now I'm moving onto my next biggest concern - my weight - so I have also joined the Weight Loss NHS HealthUnlocked community.
I just want to know if there is anyone out there with experience of preconceptive care involving losing weight for pregnancy. Can anyone share any advice for what it's like to be overweight and pregnant? I'd love it if I could reach out and get in touch with a lady who is either pregnant, trying to become pregnant or who has been through pregnancy whilst overweight.
I recently rapidly lost a lot of weight due to being poorly but have since put some of it back on. I find losing weight rather easy but I find keeping to a healthy diet and routine difficult and so put weight back on easily. Any recommendations, advice or shared stories would be hugely welcomed.
