Let me introduce myself - my name is Termite and I am eating everything under the son that is not nailed down!
Well.. okay.. not quite but SERIOUSLY!. We just found out we are having a surprise and I am thrilled -however in order to do the right thing, I stopped taking my ADHD meds. Part of taking ADD/ADHD meds for me is appetite suppression and being awake and alert. This was a huge miracle because I stopped gaining weight and got to my usual size 22 (anywhere from 275-290). If my weight shot up.. I would just not eat for a few days and I would drop back to that range. If you are overweight.. I'm going to assume you know how this works :P I never want to be over 300 lbs. I am over 300 lbs now and ugh...
I have put on 15 lbs in 3 weeks and this is not good. All I want to do is eat and sleep. Somewhere in here it should be mentioned I have an autoimmune disorder and battle constant tiredness.. And for the record.. I am eating healthy food but it all has calories in it... baked chicken and fruit has calories and so does the bowl of bran flakes after.
I am gaining weight like mad.
Has anyone lost weight successfully (and safely during pregnancy)? How did you find the motivation to do it? What did you eat to kill your appetite? If I was to lose 20 lbs but gain 20 in pregnancy - Id just stay the same kind of thing..
I am so so emotional and I am sorry..
My OB says the ADD meds are a category C and will consider it secoind trimester maybe but gave me the look of doom "It really really really has to be you can not live without it and the risk to baby is worth it because of your life" (She is right just omg Im
fighting the urge to not eat my house and sleep at the same time)
Really..the ADD meds helped with the ADD and making my appetite normal and giving me some energy.
Anyone want to be my online friend and share some encouragement? Anyone managed to not gain weight in pregnancy ? (that wasn't because they had horrible morning sickness?
Thank you for listening
