Abortion/Weight Gain After Medical Termination


DivaMom wrote at 2014-06-02 17:07:24
I'm in the same boat. Had a medicated abortion at about 5weeks, back in July of 2013. I was a size 8/10 last summer at about 160 lbs, I am now a size 14 & 180 lbs. Nothing in my diet changed, I continue to be active and work out. But keep gaining :( I went and had a physical, and blood work done, and everything came back pretty normal. I can't seem to lose any weight and am so frustrated
