I became pregnant through ivf treatment. I got lucky at the first try. The side effect however, was considerable weight gain. My preggo belly was noticeable even in the first trimester. I used to be a slim and petite person before pregnancy but in the last trimester, I was huge! Anyway, I had a c-section and my baby (full-term and normal size) is now three months. I have lost some weight since her birth but the problem is, I still look about 5 months pregnant! I can't seem to get rid of the tummy! I started working out 6 weeks after my child's birth, I'm doing cardio and pilates.....still no luck.
I'm wondering whether anyone in this group has experienced what I am experiencing right now. Is it the hormone injections from the IVF procedure or the c-section or both, that have made me gain so much weight? I would really appreciate help from anyone who's been in my situation! Thanks!
