Hi all, I have bulimarexia and am 7 weeks pregnant. I had been in recovery from my eating disorder for quite some time prior to becoming pregnant, but in the last 6 weeks, I have gained 8 pounds! I am TOTALLY freaking out. I know that I have to gain weight for the baby and everything, but does it have to go everywhere on my body?! And how can I control the panic of gaining weight so that I can stay healthy and have a healthy baby? After the baby is born I know that I am going to need help to stay away from going back to full blown active ED mode. Can anyone suggest anything other then saying, "just remember your baby needs it..." Not to be mean, but people have kept saying that to me and it doesn't seem to be reducing the sheer panic I am feeling at all...

Alex, I'm doing a research project on eating disorders and pregnancy, and I'd love to talk with you, whether you want to participate in my project or not. As someone who has struggled with ED myself, I understand it's a sensitive and private topic and I would greatly appreciate anything you are ready to share. You can drop me an email at [email protected] if you're interested. Thanks and best wishes for a happy and healthy pregnancy.

Hey...personally I dont think I could give you good advice. I am a teen mom with an eating disorder. Throughout the pregnancy I became a zombie and just ignored all feelings so I could last the pregnancy being healthy. Now my baby is 5 months old and I cant stop. My sugesstion...get help for it...I am not personally at the point of WANTING to get better though.
