More yo-yoing

So tomorrow I go to the doctor's. AGAIN. I swear, if i never see another doctor after all this is over, I will be THRILLED.

I'm to the point where they want me in every week. Ever week for the ultrasound, and every week (on a separate appointment) for the ob/gyn.

I know, I know, I'm almost done. God tho, it doesn't feel like it. I just wish I had gotten to my goal weight before I got pregnant. Then maybe I wouldn't be dealing with the gestational diabetes. It wouldn't make the epilepsy go away, but it might have avoided this problem. And yes, I'm all annoyed about it, but I do worry about baby. :(

Here's hoping the baby will cooperate this time and I'll at least get a new picture. :)

I'm still having trouble with my eating. I'll get the carbs under control, and then I'm low on calories (mind you - I'm not hungry!) and low on protein. The doctor's answer - force yourself to eat. Uh, no. So not going back there. I worked too hard to learn what is my body actually being hungry. I'm not going to ruin that hard work, and it kind of bothers me that a doctor would tell me to do so. How can that be healthy?

The dietitian doesn't seem concerned about the weight. Finally got the meter to work - apparently the strips went bad early or something. Weird. I'll test again in the morning like I'm supposed to, and if it works again, I won't go talk to the dietician. I don't have an appointment with her tomorrow - I just have the ultrasound.

I'm still not gaining any weight; tho I don't know how the doctors expect me to - I was eating 3,000+ calories a day to GET to this weight - now I'm eating around 1,900 per day. And they're shocked I'm not gaining weight? Am I the only one confused by that logic?

Anyways, gonna catch up on a few things and then head to bed. Night sparkfriends!

    Lots of doctor appointments at the end, but it IS almost the end! The baby doctor appointments after he gets here will be more fun as you get to measure how he is progressing...not to mention that you get to show him off to all the nurses and the doctor!!!!

Hang in there dear, you are almost at the finish line!
