Pregnant with eating disorder

Hi, i have just found out this week that i am pregnant. I am very scared because i have suffered from an eating disorder (mainly Anorexia) for around 5 years now, since i was about 15. I am a lot better now than i was, and i weigh about 6 stone 9 now.

I would like some advice from someone who's been through a similar thing. I am very worried about the weight gain, also i want to eat properly for my baby, but i don't know how to eat properly because i am still learning how to "be normal" again!

My main concern is also that i will lose the baby because i'm "too small". Please can someone help me, i really want this baby and want to do what is right.

Re: Pregnant with eating disorder

Congrats on your pregnancy!!! I understand how you feel about the weight gain. I used to get very thin but now I am healthy and excercise regulary. I am trying to get pregnant now and I know I will worry about the weight gain. I also think that you can look the most beautiful when you are pregnant. The whole radiance and weight gain look so wonderful in a pregnant mother. I would see a Naturopath or Dietiian and they could recommend a healthy diet. I would make sure you consume the right amount of calories to have a healthy baby. Good Luck
