The Time Is Now...

My first ever post to this blog was about a year and a half ago.  In May 2011 I found out I was pregnant with our second baby, a girl who arrived on 1/30/12!

Between the time I originally started this blog until the time I found out I was pregnant I gained a ton of weight.  I don't have a Thyroid so I take daily hormone replacements.  Since I had lost the remainder of my baby weight from Jack and had less "mass" my primary doctor started messing with my hormone levels - it was disaster.  After gaining about 40 pounds in 3-4 months I was finally referred to a specialist, an Endocronologist.  I found out I was pregnant a couple days before my initial visit with him, but together we aggressively managed my hormone levels and I only gained 19 pounds with Norah.

I remember the day I went for my first visit with my OBGYN at 10 weeks pregnant and weighing 189 pounds...OMG!  After Norah, the initial 40 pounds fell off in the first 3-4 weeks, but since then I've been stuck right around the 168-170 pound mark.

It's time to get my act together and I'm going to use this blog to share my story, my progress and hold myself accountable!  Hold on tight, it's bound to be a bumpy road...
