Until I get my meter I am doing my best at exchanges, but they don't really work for a lot of things (fage 0% is totally not a milk even though it is yogurt. 1/2 cup is like 10 g protein & 4.5 g carb). I am 4'11" and my mom was 5'0". I know I weighed 8.5 lbs at birth. So they can go screw on the big baby card
I won't ever ever do that test again. I hated it. It is not healthy to subject your body to that. My arms still hurt and I still feel like I have a hangover. I am so sorry about your first pregnancy. That must have been excruciating.
I actually had a bunch of hormone & sugar testing done in november because I'd been having trouble losing weight. All normal, but I was eating really really healthy. Just a slow loser. I think I should have just stuck with counting my WW points. I have admittedly added some less healthy foods back into my eating but overall I am a healthy eater (just not really really like I was in Nov).
I am going to infant care class tomorrow (it was 12 bucks, figured why not, maybe we will learn infant CPR). So I have planned my food to take with. I have like oatmeal & pnut butter + boiled egg for breakfast. Who eats like this? It's like something out of the 50s. The sample plan they gave me via email was crazy. It was like 2-3 times the carbs I normally eat, but WAY less food eve than I was eating on WW before pregnancy & losing weight. And weird crap like 2 pc toast + 12 oysters. Ummm. You are not even supposed to eat oysters while PG.
I am also trying to work on my iron count. Which basically involves me trying to have 2 meals a day without dairy/calcium so I can take my iron. Maybe I can achieve that in morning & afternoon snacks. But I have been taking liquid iron, which needs refrigerated, which is hard at work.
Wah this is so frustrating. Thanks for listening guys. All I feel like doing is whining!!!! I am very interested in getting my meter so I can start figuring my diet out. At least I can check in at the pharmacy tomorrow while I am there to see if they put in the order for my meter.
Oh I emailed with a friend today who had GD. She had a scheduled-c on her DD (she asked for it!) because she thought baby was too big. they estimated 9,14 and baby was 8,8.
