I was bulimic when i conceived my son. I have been anorexic/bulimic for about 10 years. I didn't have my period for about 3 years in that time frame. I got married in 2010 and was still not recovered. I found out i was pregnant about 2 months later and was able to fight the urge to purge from about week 13 on (before that i was so nauseous i didn't know if it was the ed or morning sickness causing me to throw up). Good news is that i went on to have a healthy pregnancy and now have a healthy 17 month old. I have been able to keep the ed at bay and recently found out we are expecting #2. Not that i am saying the recovery plan for ed's is to get pregnant, but in my case it helped make the weight gain acceptable. Unfortunately i didn't share with my Dr, so i still feel alone and struggled through it myself. Good luck!
