After spending the last two years eating paleo and all around better than I EVER have in my entire life, as well as working out more regularly than ever, I've struggled to actually lose the weight. While my body shape has changed and my conditioning has improved, I always hovered within the same 5-10lb range. Super frustrating and almost depressing!
Well finally, this past Thursday my OB's office called to tell me that my blood work shows I have hypothyroidism. I have my first appt tomorrow and figure I will be put on medication. I don't know that I should expect to actually lose weight during the remainder of my pregnancy (I'm overweight so it couldn't hurt) but I hope to at least halt any weight gain.
Has anyone here experienced this at all? Can you share your experience?
Also, if you had it during your pregnancy did it affect your child at all in the end?
Thanks in advance for reading and responding.
