I gained quite a bit of weight from my first pregnancy and I had a hard time losing it all. In fact, I never did quite go back to my pre-pregnancy size.

I’m now 10 weeks pregnant but as I’ve been through two miscarriages previously, both of which I lost at 13 weeks, my anxiety levels are pretty high. My doctor has assured me that my pregnancy is progressing normally and I should try and focus on the positives but needless to say, that’s been a challenge. How can I ensure this pregnancy goes smoothly and how can I cope with my anxiety?
