Just wondering if any other mothers have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism after having their baby and if so what helped you overcome it? Within the first two months I lost all the baby weight and was back to pre pregnancy weight. Then at about the 3 month mark, I started gaining weight like crazy but I was still eating healthily and doing exercise most days. The doctor diagnosed me with hypothyroidism and said it can happen with the hormone shift after giving birth or a few months after and that it usually settles down at around 6-9 months afterwards. My baby is a bit over 5 months and the weight is still mounting on! Any advice?
