how old is your LO?
i threw out all my old clothes when I was pregnant then after ellie was born my maternity clothes were way too big & i pretty much lived in joggers & pjs until i had got back to normal.
if your LO is only a manner of weeks old then your body can still take quite a while to get back into shape.
the best diet i find is healthy eating & exercise- walk with the pram! i know it's not a quick fix but it works & i have lost a lot of weight through doing it
good luck hon & don't feel downhearted! xox

Give it time. I wish I was a size 12 in any trousers lol!!
Just eat a balanced diet or join a sliiming club. Going out with your lo in their pushchair doing a brisk walk is good too. Especially when the weather's better and easier to get out.

I was a size 8-10 before I fell pregnant and I'm now a size 12.
I am trying to get back into shape but I can not find the energy or time half the time. Now the weather is getting nice I'm trying to get out and walk with Olivia everyday and I also have a dog so walking her a lot now I'm feeling up to it which my oh likes as he had been doing it on his own since I was about 35 weeks.
I also need to start eating better foods and I skip a lot of meals then east junk.

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
