I just had a baby 11 months ago. But my weight has been steadliy ticking up each month since I had the baby. i think right now I weight as much if not more than during my last month of pregnancy. i have dieted, exercised and it still comes on. I am getting a little worried, should I see my gyn? My regualr doc did test my thyrpid 2 months ago and it was within the limits.
Could it be hormonal or the preimenopause cauing this??
Hi there! It depends on your age and if you are going through it. I am 44 and I am hypothyroid and in perimenopause. In the past 4 years I have put on 35 pounds. I have now taken off 12 since November. It is SO HARD!! I blame it on my age and my thyroid. Definately make sure your thyroid is working properly. But when I had my babies it took me a couple of years to get it off. Hang in there!
Same thing is happening to me. Gained 40 - 50 lbs since 10/31/08. Baby is 7 months old. Estrogen level fell and my eyes & contacts really felt it. Also got wrinkles on the forehead over eyes from straining to see. Thyroid levels etc tested and all within normal middle of the road range. I think if I could get my estrogen back up naturally could loose weight and stop gaining. Weight gain is like 5 lbs every two weeks. Lost 50 lbs while pregnant. Baby still weighed 7.2. Please let me know if you have found anything to help
