I am a 34 year old mom of 2 who until my last pregnancy had a normal weight and a control on my hormones. After my last pregnancy, she just turned 3, I have gone down hill! I am on 2 different antidepressants and still have strong bouts of depression 70% of the month. I had a handle on my weight loss up until last summer. In August of 2006, I had mirena (IUD) put in and that is when the weight just started to pile on. I had it removed in Jan 07 and I am still gaining weight. I average about 5lbs a month if not more. The last pair of jeans I tried on fit, now I am about 3 sizes bigger, and I struggle to get into those. All of my weight is carried mostly in my belly (budha as I call it). It would almost be easier to say I was about 6-7 months pregnant. Since having the IUD removed, my cycles returned to normal the following month and have been regular since. So I know I am not pregnant.
Any ideas as to my I would be gaining that steadily? I have had my thyroid and other hormones checked out and it all came back normal. So between my depression and weight gain, I am at a loss
