So I finally saw the dietician today. What a waste of time. She managed to explain some things, but mostly she was confused by my questions! I still have morning sickness and needed to eat more frequently than suggested; she wasn't sure what to say about that. I don't drink milk,and eat little dairy, as the baby doesn't like it. This really confused her. She didn't even try to discuss how to handle the soy milk!
All in all, I'm no less confused than when I went in, and I'm so disappointed. I kept telling myself that this appointment would make it all make sense, and give me a clear sense of what to do and how to handle this. Nope. not at all.
I'm losing weight again this pregnancy, which I love, since it doesn't seem to be bothering Lily at all. My guess it's from limiting carbs, cause that's something I didn't have to do with Wes, but did with Nate, and I lost with him too. After the pregnancy with Nate, I stuck a toe in Onderland. So I'm hoping it'll be the same with Lily. and during the couple of months I nursed Wes, I lost 20 lbs. It would be wonderful if that continues!
I'm trying to stay upbeat, but it's really hard. I was so excited with Nate and Wes, and I want to be with Lily too. We're finally having a girl!
But between the news of a medically necessary repeat c-section, which I'm really upset about (And PLEASE, don't tell me a healthy baby is all that matters, because while it certainly matters, it's not the only thing that does) and the anemia, and the diabetes, it's really hard to be happy and excited.
