Lost another pound!

I don't know what to do, Mamas! I lost another pound. I still haven't gained back ANYTHING. I'm still LOSING. I thought I was at least holding steady. My entire family is exhausted from making sure that I eat all the time. I've even started eating some sweets...had a few vegan truffles from the chocolate shop the other day and dh made me a delicious vegan peach cobbler.

Not that I'm vegan at all these days!!! I'm eating 3 eggs with hash browns EVERY MORNING.

I'm going to have to call my mw. I don't know what to do
: I'm still so nauseous most of the time, even though I'm not vomiting much at all...I know I can't eat any more than I already do.

I don't think my marriage or family can take any more stringent food pressure...
: It's just too hard.

I can't imagine being as sick as you have been. I've been quite nauseous again over the last 2 weeks. Wondering if it's more stress/depression related as I've really been struggling to get a grip on life the last few weeks. But then food issues and nausea can cause stress and depression, so who knows which is causing which for me. All I can say is that if my husband was here, I know we would be struggling as well with all my food issues. There's so much I can't eat or can't stand to eat. I eat the same things over and over again. I know I'm not anywhere close to as sick as you are, but I do understand a little. This has been by far the hardest pregnancy for me.

Let us know what the mw says.

Sorry you have to go through this. I hope you and your mw can figure out what's going on and you can start packing on the pounds soon. I wish I could give you some of mine...

I'm so sorry you're dealing with this. I hope your mw has some helpful advice for you.

Well, I called our mw...and, I think she was trying to reassure me that everything's probably fine... But, then my dd1 came in the house screaming and bleeding from the mouth and I had to hang up. Dh and dd1 are on their way to the dentist--she knocked one of her brand-new-permanent teeth loose...
I called and the dentist said to come right in.

I'm sure it will be okay; we have a really great children's dental clinic.

Ohhh, I'm overwhelmed...I just want to run away and hide...

Have to get ready for a wedding rehearsal tonight...

You have a good memory, Robina!

No worries! They're already on their way back. She's just on a soft-foods diet for today. Apparently the roots of permanent teeth take a few years to fully form. She didn't actually break any of them, so her tooth will be fine. Phew!

I'm still waiting to hear back from my mw again. I'm not sure if she wants me to do anything specific or to just stay calm...
Both are easier said than done...

Oh lordy, what a day for you!

Trust your midwife. She wouldn't let you or your baby fall into danger.

And I hope your other lo is feeling better!

Isis and ???

I am looking for strong girl names if you don't mind sharing! Hubby likes Athena.

As far as losing weight - bummer! I am SO glad you're not vomitting as much though! I started less vomiting around a month ago but still went through terrible nausea. Each week is a smidge better.

So far, three better days in a row, though I haven't made it all the way through this day to be sure! And I am still holding steady weight wise. Exactly my pre-pregnancy weight now (had gained back what I lost as soon as I was hydrated.

Once in a while I lose a pound and end up re-gaining it quickly. I just keep waivering on the same two pounds I guess.
I think you need to make some butter(margerine?) toffee with pecans and eat the whole pan to yourself.
I wouldn't be concerned at all if I had gained back *any* of the 20 lbs I already lost...
I just have to keep trying, I guess.

My dd2's name is Yemaya ("Yae-my-ah"). She's the Yoruba goddess of the ocean.


Will the toffee put on 20-22 lbs? I'm on it!

Well, yeah, if you eat it non-stop!
Nuts, sugar, saturated fats, how can you go wrong?

Isis is our top (well, I gave up on discussing names with DH) girl name. I love it, and all of its meaning (fertility goddess)...

He just saw me posting this and said "we really need to talk...and I am so praying for a boy!!" LOL

Anyhoo...back to the topic - I've also lost a bunch of weight (now down 12 lbs, about 1/10th of my body weight)...Lately I have gained a pound here and there, and am only vomiting about 2x a week now, def do-able. I'm not nauseous, and when I am, I know that I need to puke and just do it now.

I'm trying to eat whatever appeals to me, but, watermelon and strawberries arent exactly fatten foods.

I do think that stress totally contributes to when I am sick - trying to get up and run out usually ends with me in the bushes gagging. And oddly, dealing with my IL's (as I need to next Wed-Sat...HELP me!!) really kicks up the nausea and vomiting. I was reading somewhere about the psychological impact on HG - fascinating...let me see if I can find it again.
Oh mama!

I am thinking of you!
