Hi everyone! This is my first post on here. I am 32 years old and just found out I am pregnant with our first child. (I am about 5 weeks along and used Clomid) A couple weeks ago I weighed in at 303. Before I even knew I was pregnant I started changing to healthier eating habits and am only drinking water. Today I weighed in at 296.
I had a miscarriage last year at 9.5 weeks. Of course, this makes me nervous/more paranoid this go round, but so far the symptoms have been far more intense and it feels "different" if that makes sense.
One thing that worries me is my weight. I have been taking medication for high blood pressure for about 5 years, so that is my primary concern going into things. I am doing very well right now eating healthy, and plan to continue. Just looking for others who have had experiences having a child at a higher weight.
Also, I noticed for about the past 3-4 days, at night when I am trying to sleep, I will have a higher heart rate. (has been up to 110) Is this normal? From being pregnant and body changes? Its a little scary when its happening, just wanted to see if anyone else had experienced it. It feels like my heart is beating so loud and strong.
Thanks in advance!!! :)
