My biggest fear used to be that I wouldn’t lose weight before I got pregnant. I was so fearful of going into a pregnancy when I was already overweight that I delayed getting pregnant for several years even when I was ready to start a family. I was not so overweight that doctors were worried about me having a healthy pregnancy. No. I just wasn’t at my ideal weight or whatever I had decided that should be.
When I finally faced my fears not only did I get pregnant and have a beautiful, healthy son (Yay!) but I also realized that my fears were in fact assets. If you think that being overweight means that you can’t get pregnant or that you won’t enjoy your pregnancy think again. I ended up not only facing my fears but enjoying a large part of my pregnancy (not the very end!).
