This is what I’ve been doing for the past nine months! I am back to lose the baby weight and will start doing monthly update vlogs. I hope to film some recipes and baby updates as well.

Rafael was born November 14th, 2012 weighing 7.9 pounds in Eilat, Israel at Joseftal hospital. I had to have a c-section so his birth was planned. Around the 5th month of pregnancy, I developed a pregnancy complication called Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD) – I spelled it wrong in the video. This made it incredibly painful to walk and impossible for me to lift my legs at all. Needless to say, I didn’t exercise or move very much for the last 4-5 months of pregnancy. Now that I have had the baby, the pain is gone, but my muscles are extremely weakened around the pelvis (hip flexors and thighs), and the front of my pelvic bone “pops” when I get out of bed sometimes. I have to start walking and working out to gain strength there again.

Check out my weight loss videos after pregnancy! I’m losing the baby weight!!

I decided to make a similar video I am obese and pregnant this is my 2nd
child too and yet I get cruel hateful comments saying I am setting my child
up for embarrassment because I show my daughter in the video and I am
disgusting… youtube is such a cruel place for haters hope your having
better luck

Whenever I get scared of getting pregnant with a lot of weight on, I watch
this and I just stand there in awe. You did so good, both you and your
husband with all the efforts, I was watching the videos about water
fasting, that was just amazing what you did there! I remember it was this
video I saw when I found your channel couple of months ago, when I thought
I was pregnant, and it really helped me and inspired me, then you started
to inspire me on other levels – with the weight loss, now I lost around
44lbs in total since June and I feel better than ever, and your videos have
to do a lot with my success! I do have a question, how was your c section
going there, and how was your recovery? I heard horrid stories from mothers
who gave birth that way, and they are not even overweight, so I am so
scared if I would have to have one, and I have a lot of fat on my lower
belly, just how I am built, I have nothing on my legs, or boobs, bum, just
mostly belly… :( I am so scared of that, and especially how it can harm
me and the baby!

Cute family…. very cute hubby lol

Bethany Drivas says:

I was 40 pounds overweight with my last pregnancy and I suffered from SPD.
It was a nightmare! Putting on pants, getting into a car. And since noone
heard of it, they just thought I was being a whiny pregnant woman. It got
better after delivery but somewhere between my 2 pregnancies I my pelvis
went crooked and I have problems with my pelvis going “off” every couple
months and the chiropractor has to straighten it.

Maurisa Paul says:

I have been searching sooo long for a video that I can relate too…I am
heavy set as well and expecting… and I’m so nervous of what I would look
like during delivery and giving birth… even though I didnt see the full
procedure just watching your video is a true inspiration!!! thank you for

Tiffany Treaster says:

AWWWW! I just found this video. Looks like you had a tough pregnancy:(
You look so bummed in the beginning. It was awesome to see Rafael as a
newborn though, and Hadar as a new dad. Brought tears to my eyes:) You
are so brave to post this, Andrea. Btw, It was so weird seeing you with
brown hair! Not bad, just different:)

Heather Ortega says:

Thank you so much for sharing this! I’ve gotten really worried because I’m
28 weeks pregnant and almost 340lbs and I couldn’t find anyone else who was
like me. And also thank you for showing your belly!!!! It almost looks like
mine! You’re more rounded out though, I’m hoping my belly will do the same
as I get farther along.

Monique hernandez says:

I never wanted to remember the number lol .

Louise Hall says:

i want to thank you so much for shearing your story, i wish there was more
people like you. i weight 205lbs and a little worried i could be pregnant
with my first. im not worried of being pregnant its just being pregnat at
this size. In the UK its bad to be big and i would hate myself if i am i
something would happen to me or the baby. your video has shown me hope and
happiness that if i am pregnant everything will be okay as long as i stay
healthy and the baby so thank you again and congratz on a little handsome

LivingwPCOS says:

I an 23 weeks pregnant today. I list 70 lbs before I found out I was
pregnant. I list 17 lbS after I found out I was pregnant and I have gained
10 lbs back. I am now at 224.9 and it scares me to be gaining weight again!
