Welcome and Congratulations! I'm just behind you, due at the end of June!

I'll always be plus sized...but I'm definitely hitting the diet train when baby baking is done!

Thanks for the welcome, Shockandawe

I am about 306 right now, started my pregnancy at 300 so I am very pleased with the amount of weight I've gained!!!! I'm only supposed to gain 5-10lbs Yay! My goal weight is 200lbs, maybe I will get there someday! I think for me that would be perfect, I would still be chunky, but a sexier chunky!

welcome Emily!!

I'm Emma (26), I have Gabrielle (3) & am due in June (like you, I see!) with princess #2 - Emersyn. I have always been plus sized, and imagine I always will be, but I would like to lose a decent amount of weight, once Emmy has arrived

welcome! I'm Chelsea (22) married to Sam (25) and momma to Brylie (08.08.09) and planning another IUI for the end of this year in hopes of another little girl

I used to be very thin and gained tons of weight after my mom died. I would like to get down to about a size 10 or so (I'm between 14-16 now). I have PCOS with IR so it makes things difficult

I can't wait to get to know you and enjoy your pregnancy!!!!!

Hello and welcome!

I am Liz (30), married to Patrick (39) and mom to Stella (17mo).I have been plus sized my entire life. I am currently trying to lose weight since Dh and I want to TTC starting in July/August.
I am not here to often, but am going to try to make more of an effort to check in from time to time. This is a great group of ladies!

Welcome! I'm Michele (25) and DH is Bobby (24). We are expecting our first little boy in July!

I have always been plus-sized. I weighed 305 at my heaviest and I managed to get down to 185 in less than a year, which is where I started this pregnancy. I'm up to almost 220 already But I'm hoping to start losing again after I have this baby. You can definitely get down to 200 if you want! Looks like there are a few of us who will be going back to trying to lose after our babies are here this summer!

Hi I am Melanie (37) married to Thomas (35) and we have DD Emmie (16 months) and due with #2 September 21-23 range...

I have fought my weight my ENTIRE life and I hate it... I started the PG at 224 about the same as the other one and I promise myself when this baby is born and BF is done --- it is definitely go time for getting healthier and thinner... I don't mind the number, I mind the body shape - a HUGE pear that has the hardest time looking good in anything and makes me horribly depressed --- UGH... So it is own like Donkey Kong

Thanks everyone for all the welcomes

I have also struggled with weight my whole life, Melanie. My lowest was I think 230 when I was 16 and my biggest was a few years ago at 310. I am now about 307, but it's baby weight A few years ago, at 310, I was able to get down to about 260 through diet and exericise. Counting calories and working out almost everyday, I felt really good about it but it was soooo much work I eventually stopped and went up to 300 again. Blah!!!

I'm hopeing that since both DH and I want baby Zane to have healthy eating habits that will force me to eat better since I will buy healthier food....we will see!!! Either way, I have a wonderful hubby who loves me at any size (I think I was about 280 on our wedding day and probably 270 when we first met...so he obviously loves me heavier) and I'm sure my baby boy will love me no matter what, so life is good. I have to do it for my health though! Thus far I have been very lucky, no diabetes no heart problems, etc. But that can change at any moment, so I have to do it for my family!!!
