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!
