On the Teen Mom OG episode “Oh Baby,” while Amber finds out she’s pregnant with her second child, Catelynn decides to remove her birth control (an IUD). At the doctor’s office, Catelynn is asked if she’s certain she wants it removed. (Catelynn cancelled a number of prior appointments to remove it.) Catelynn says she is certain. Although she does admit “It’s scary going from one to two.” She also brings up the postpartum depression she experienced after having her second child, daughter Nova.
The doctor reminds Catelynn that her anti-depression medication (Zoloft, 100mg a day) might have to be decreased if she becomes pregnant again. The doctor also mentions Catelynn’s gestational diabetes with Nova. Catelynn’s pre-pregnancy weight with Nova was 201 lbs. She’s now reportedly 189lbs. The doctor says while that’s better it still gives Catelynn “a pretty high BMI.” (That’s body mass index; Catelynn’s is 35 which is considered obese by the U.S. National Institute of Health.) “You need to be pro-active in getting that weight down,” says the doctor. She wants Catelynn to lose 15lbs, “although 20 would be better.” Catelynn says okay. Teen Mom OG airs Mondays at 9pm on MTV.
