It's been a while since I've been on this site. My doctor has recently become concerned with my weight gain. I have put on over 30 lbs and I've still got 16 weeks to go. I am 170 lbs. I started the pregnancy around 130-something. (At 12 weeks I was 140lbs)
I have a history with eating disorders and I'm truly concerned that my head is getting the best of me. I am not letting it become a factor right now, especially during this pregnancy, but I feel like I've swung the other way - ALWAYS wanting to eat, always making poor eating choices. I want meat, carbs, and dairy. And that is a recipe for gestational diabetes from what I've heard.
I have the glucose test in a couple of weeks.
I'm going to try and get better.
I am so incredibly tired still. Today is no exception. I had physical therapy this morning (the weight gain and/or the pregnancy has put a bad strain on my hips and it hurts to move them in certain ways....never had this problem before....) and I'm just dragging from it all. I think I may go take a nap. I am just so tired and I thought the tiredness goes away in the 2nd trimester. I'm nearing my 3rd and I'm still exhausted most of the time.
Sorry I'm not a ray of sunshine today, I just wish I had the motivation to be healthier. I walked a mile this morning. I made my raw juice. I took my vitamins. I just wish I could make a habit out of it all.
