Hey ladies, let me preface by saying that I have really super well controlled type 2 diabetes. I was diagnosed several yearsago when I was a little heavier. I have since lost weight and my blood sugars are practically normal. I actually have more issues with hypoglycemia than anything else.
Ok so when I had my 20 week ultrasound, the dr said everything looked good but he wanted to send me to Children's Hospital to get a "better look at the heart" If there was something wrong, he would have to tell me right?! As the echocardio thing looms closer I am playing my favorite game of "what if there is something wrong" Has anyoneelse every had an echocardio something? AmI being paranoid for nothing?
Now on to part 2. I really haven't gained very much with this baby. As of 20 weeks I had gained 2 pounds, which I know isn't enough (I am 4ft 11 and about 112 pre baby) In the last week I have been STARVING and have promptly gained 5 lbs. I was secretly hoping I wouldn't gain very much with this baby and would not have much work to do when the baby comes. I am craving the grossest, least healthy things ever, so it is not like I am gaining salad, and apple weight. It is doritos and cookie weight. WIth my 1st I couldhave cared less how much weight I gained and (although it took AWHILE) I lost every single pound. Why do I care this time? Is it another wack in my hormones? This pregnancy has been tough on my hormones, withsome depression issues and lots and lots of tears. Is this just another side effect. I want to be enjoying the "i get to eat whatever I want" but I find myself questioning everything I put in my mouth. Can someone tell me to stop beingcrazy!!!
