I am so upset today. I literally came home from my OB appointment and cried. I am sure it is partly hormonal, but I have always struggled with this topic... WEIGHT GAIN!
No, I am not upset about gaining weight. I am loving my pregnancy body (and so does C!). However, Dr. S made me feel really bad and now I'm thinking about switching. Please let me know what you would do...
Dr. S: So have you been Nauseated or vomiting?
Me: No actually just very hungry! I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night and HAVE to eat (thinking this is normal)!
Dr. S: Oh well if your concerned about weight gain, we can put you on the diabetic diet. (She proceeds to explain it to me... carb watching, etc.)
Me: Hmmm... Well I've gained 6 lbs now.
Dr. S: Most people lose weight in their first trimester!
Me: Well I'm not PUKING!
Dr. S: We only want you to gain 30 lbs total!
Me: (huh? I thought that was for a singleton!) I read that it was 37-50 lbs for twins!
Dr. S: I only gained 2 lbs with my twin pregnancy.
Me: (Well that's because your obese!) oh.
I walked out of there with my tail between my legs (so to speak). After going through SO MUCH to get to this point, the last thing I want to worry about gaining a SPECIFIC amount of weight. She didn't even give me a range. Plus she HAD to throw the 2 lb thing in there. I mean seriously?? 2 lbs?? That just doesn't seem healthy.
I eat HEALTHY foods. I am not gorging on french fries and Ice cream. I do yoga twice a week and take daily walks. I am doing the best I can. Right now I am trying to be a GOOD mom to my babies by being HEALTHY! I don't need some doctor trying to put me on a diet!
So what do I do? Change doctors? Or give her another shot? I KNOW I am being healthy and don't need to stress about anything else.
