i had my son a year ago and have not stopped gaining weight since then. i weighed 47kg before the pregnancy (i had a fast metabolsim), and am now close to 80kgs (i went from i size 6 to a size 14) and the weightgain, altho it has slowed slightly has not stoppped and i gain about 500g to about 3kgs a month... iv been to a dietician (who said my diet was perfect), i exercise between 3 & 5 days a week, iv been to the doctor and theyv tested my thyroid, insulin & glucose levels, all of which are normal...



iv recnetly started noticing new symptoms altho i dont know if they are related, such as hairloss, joint& muscle ache, to name a few...



has anyone else had a similar problem? or have any advice that i havnt yet tried...

the hairloss, joint n muscle ache are due to pregnancy. i also have the same probs...major hairloss (apparently we r only losing as much as we should have lost during pregnancy) sore finger joints n knuckes and sore hip joints and wrists...quite normal apparently and can last for years.



As for your weight gain, i am unsure....

Go to a different doctor and get a full work up done. Blood work,stress test,cardio work up...everything. Better to be safe then sorry.good luck.
