Our expert says:
I would recommend that you go back to the dr who is monitoring you are the birth of your baby and discuss this abnormal weight gain with him. If he prescribed Nexiam this would be for an ulcer or excess acid production? Ask him about this too. One condition that can cause rapid weight gain or loss is of course depression. If you think that this could be the reason for your increase in weight then it may be necessary to consult a clinical psychologist or a psychiatrist to help you sort out why you are depressed. Post-natal depression is relatively common so it is something that one should consider after the birth of a baby.
