Well, it seems that this community is garnering a very negative response. I'm not sure exactly why, as people tend to call names instead of raising an intelligent debate. So I will try to pre-empt what I can...

I have the utmost concern for the health of my baby. I want her to have all the nutrition she needs to function properly. However, I am not interested in getting ANY more than the barest minimum of safety.

Lots of moms-to-be diet and work out. They stay skinny and svelte. Uma Thurman, Kate Moss, Katie Holmes, Heidi Klum, Gwenyth Paltrow...it goes on and on. They go on to have healthy, happy babies.

Anorexics like to compare anorexia to cancer. It is a disease, not a choice or a lifestyle. So let me ask you, if you got pregnant tomorrow, would you suddenly be recovered? If a cancer victim got pregnant, should she stop having cancer for the health of her baby?

Lastly, anorexia is NOT just about starvation. It is a mental disorder, involving the obsessions and predilections outlined in the DSM-IV. These issues still remain after conception.

And hey, at least we all have amenorrhea XD

EDIT: Lots of people are now saying that it's okay to damage yourself, but NOT okay to hurt others.

Ladies...if you think that your ED is not hurting ANYONE and EVERYONE who cares for you...you are fooling yourselves. Sorry.
