Hi there, I had both my children after my Ed. They were both very healthy and happy. I was at a very low point in my Ed, hospitalized several times, suffered a stroke and seizures. I finally started gaining weight, and got my period back before optimal weight but way better than at my lowest point and I became pregnant then. At that point I really went full force into making myself healthy for the sake of my baby. I put on about 50 pounds during that first pregnancy which was a healthy weight gain considering I was underweight to start with. So yes it is definatly possible- my advice is to create the healthiest possible lifestyle before pregnancy, make sure you are weight restored and eating well so that the baby has the best possible environment during pregnancy. Good luck!
