    Hi,

    Not sure if any of you remember me but for those who do just wanted to let you know my cambridge baby was born on 25th Nov weighing 8lb 8oz, a little boy who we've called Arran John Edward (nothing to do with Jedward but his big brother is delighted!).

    I ended up with pre-eclampsia and was admitted to hospital with extreme swelling and high blood pressure. I weighed myself before I went in and I was 19st 10lb OMG!!!! Arran was delivered 2 days later by section as I wasn't favourable enough to induce labour and he had to come out. I weighed myself when we got home and I still weighed 19st 10lb OMG, despite delivering an 8 1/2lb baby!! Anyway, the swelling is starting to go down, I'm now 18st 5lb so 19lb in 10 days isn't too bad, here's hoping it keeps going down the way, my pre pregnancy weight was 16st 2lb.

    So, atm we're breastfeeding and will continue for as long as Arran wants, after that it'll be back on CD and I'll be doing it for me this time. First time my goal was to get pregnant, and I did it quite quickly, lol! Although it was a tough pregnancy and I'm having a tough recovery which I'm sure is down to thw weight I started pregnancy at. However he's worth it, every bit ;)

    congartulations - he looks beautiful. Hope you are on the road to recovery too. Don't stress about the weight...just enjoy your bundle of joy! I had my first baby in August, put on 3 stone and have now lost 1.5 stone in 3 weeks with the help of CD. I obvioulsy waited 3 months before restarting and never breastfed!
    Anyway... good luck and enjoy your baba. you'll be so busy with 2 babies the weight will fall of ya!

    S xoxo

    Who are you again? lol. Course I remember you.

    He is totally adorable. You will get back to your CD weight in no time at all when you are ready to start again.

    I am still at it, but getting there slowly.

    Good to 'see' you chick x
