Recovered anorexic and pregnancy

So, in my late teens to mid-20s, I battled anorexia and was hospitalized many times.  I consider myself a recovered anorexic, but one can never truly recover.  I still battle daily, but have been able to maintain a healthy weight.  After trying for sometime, I am finally pregnant.  I was worried I would never be able to conceive due to all the damage i did to my body.  How do I stay strong?  I need to be strong during the pregnancy and after to model good eating for my child.  Due to complications with the pregnancy, I am not able exercise at all.  This is tough because I am a competitive runner.  My husband is supportive, but we met at an ED group.  Does this poor child have any hope?
