Hey girls, I had a :wings: and a D&C on 1/20/12. I had put on between 10 and 13 lbs this cycle, I really think most of it is from being bloated, but I’m sure some is from my own habits of not being very active (I was scared to cause a problem with the pregnancy), and eating what I could get down with the round the clock MS I had. I wasn’t eating horribly, actually I was eating mostly proteins as that is all that wouldnt turn my stomach. After the D&C I immediately started eating really well and exercising the day after with no luck as far as losing any weight. Since I couldnt even lose a couple of lbs the first 2 weeks I was eating well and exercising, I thought maybe when the beta hit 0 my body would start cooperating -no such luck. My beta took about 3 weeks to get from 15000+ down to 0. I am still huge, with most of it centered around my stomach. I know I am retaining water like a beast as well as none of my rings fit when they did all through my cycle. Is this normal? Now I am thinking maybe my body needs :af: to show up for my weight to start getting back to normal. Does anyone have any insight as to when the bloat starts to go away? Normally my body responds really well to eating well and exercise, but now I feel like it doesn’t matter what I do my weight gain wants to have no part in going away. BTW, right after the D&C I started taking Royal Jelly, CoQ10, and DHEA, so I was thinking maybe thats why :af: hasn’t started yet, but I don’t think any of them are supposed to make you gain weight or retain water. Any insight?
While I am still sad about the :wings: , I have been dealing with it well and emotionally I’m ready to move on, however physically I feel so horribly uncomfortable it makes me not want to do anything where I can’t wear my pjs or workout clothes. Plus, I am very scared of starting a new cycle with this extra weight from the last one as I know the stims will only make that even worse. I would love any feedback anyone has .
