Ok this may be a completely irrational fear. After my last pregnancy with HG I gained weight after the baby was born. I'm concerned that I'm going to deal with pregnancy weight and pp weight again too. Did any of you find it difficult to have an appropriate relationship with food/diet after dealing with HG?
I completely did! I had severe m/s the entire pregnancy, but i had HG for the first 3 months... i lost 30 lbs within those first three months. once i was finally able to eat agin about 13 weeks I started gaining. then by the time I was due I had agained back that 30 and gained another 65!! in ONE month (5th month) I had gaind 25 lbs!!! my body felt like it wasn't my own at all. I was NEVER overweight before then. I was quite thin actually. ever since I have had a problem with my weight. with my second it happened again. I lost 25, gained it back and then gained 45.
I'm praying it doesn't happen this time. I've had good sucess in combating my HG with liver supplements, and unisom. I haven't lost but maybe 2 lbs. I just felt terrible all of the time, but no super dehydration yet. I am 8.5 weeks and that is usually the worst of it for me. in the past I didn't hold ANYTHING down until atleast 13 weeks. not a drop of water even. it was sovery painful. Is till have that painful feeling, that achy all over feeling mixed with that stomach ache that never leaves and makes you dizzy. but like I said, so far it's a lot better. my biggest problem this time is constipation-ugh!!
